butterfly    What is the consequence of stopping the work of the Presidency of Parliament?

2022-01-13 07:38   What is the consequence of stopping the work of the Presidency of ParliamentShafaq News/ An Iraqi legal expert explained, on Thursday, the repercussions that will result from the decision of the Federal Supreme Court to stop the work of the Presidency of Parliament.


Muhammad Al-Saadi told Shafaq News Agency, “The work of the parliament is now suspended after a pro-federal order was issued by the Federal Court to temporarily stop the work of the Presidency of the Council.”


He added, “Parliament cannot hold any regular session, take any action, or elect the president of the republic until the issue is resolved.”


Al-Saadi pointed out that “the decision to stop is not specified for a specific period, and it may take a week, a month or more.”


Earlier on Thursday, the Federal Court decided to temporarily suspend the work of the Presidency of Parliament until two lawsuits regarding the legitimacy of the first session are resolved.


According to the Federal Court, Representatives Mahmoud al-Mashhadani and Bassem Khashan filed two lawsuits, requesting the issuance of a wilaya order to stop all measures taken by the House of Representatives, the Speaker and his two deputies until the two lawsuits are resolved regarding the challenge to the constitutionality of the first session and all legal procedures that were issued in it, including the procedures for electing the president and his two deputies.


The Iraqi parliament had elected, during its first session, Muhammad al-Halbousi to head the council for a second term, and the leader of the Sadrist movement, Hakim al-Zamili, as his first deputy, and the representative of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Shakhwan Abdullah, as a second deputy.


butterfly   Tension and chaos marred the first session, which was initially chaired by Mahmoud al-Mashhadani as the eldest, before he was transferred to the hospital due to a health problem in the midst of the controversy that raged over the largest bloc between the Sadrist bloc’s deputies and the coordination framework.  shafaq.com


butterfly   Mustafa Al-Kazemi is on a paved road to win again the premiership of Iraq


1-13-2022   Mustafa Al-Kazemi is on a paved road to win again the premiership of IraqThe recent moves of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, his supervision of development and service projects, and his launching of an undeclared campaign against corruption and the corrupt, are not without, according to many, political calculations linked to his desire to seize a new government mandate.


BAGHDAD – Iraqi political circles say that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi is on an open path to winning the premiership again, in light of the support he enjoys from the Sadrist movement.


And the political circles point out that the Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr sees Al-Kazemi as the most capable figure to lead a “national majority” government that he seeks to form with the Sunni and Kurdish blocs, noting that the objections of the coordination framework that represents the forces loyal to Iran to Al-Kazemi do not pay attention to the Sadrists.


Al-Kazemi paid a visit to Najaf on Wednesday, while those close to him said that it was a continuation of a visit he made less than a week ago, and it is related to examining the reality of services in the governorate located southwest of the capital, Baghdad, which is the stronghold of the Sadrist movement.


Al-Kazemi chaired a meeting in the Najaf governorate building, which included a number of ministers, the governor of the Central Bank, leaders and directors of the service and security departments in the governorate.


During his previous visit to Najaf, which was interspersed with a hot meeting with Al-Sadr, Al-Kazemi took a set of decisions and measures related to the administration of the province, including personal supervision by him after the resignation of Governor Louay Al-Yasiri under pressure from the leader of the Sadrist movement. This resignation was met with the objections of the forces loyal to Iran, led by the State of Law coalition.


butterfly   Al-Kazemi has recently been carrying out an active campaign to improve his image, by announcing a number of development projects, and launching a campaign of dismissals of governors and senior officials, around whom suspicions of corruption are raised, or some of them are involved in suppressing protests, as is the case with the governor of Dhi Qar.


Observers of the Iraqi affairs believe that the recent measures taken by Al-Kazemi, which are in the context of beating at the hands of the corrupt, are consistent with what the Sadrist movement and its leader have repeatedly announced that confronting corruption will be at the forefront of the reform project that he intends to implement after forming a national majority government.


The Integrity Commission issues arrest warrants against 85 senior officials, including a current minister


. On Wednesday, the Iraqi Commission of Integrity announced (official) the issuance of arrest warrants and summonses against eighty-five senior officials in the state, on corruption-related cases during the month of December.


A statement by the commission concerned with investigating corruption files in Iraq stated that “the judicial authorities concerned with integrity issued ninety-eight arrest warrants and summonses during December, as those orders were issued against eighty-five senior officials (some of whom were issued more than one arrest warrant on various charges), including a current minister. “.


butterfly   The statement indicated that the orders were issued against the background of cases investigated by the Integrity Commission in Baghdad and other provinces, and referred to the judiciary. And he indicated that twenty-one arrest warrants and seventy-seven summonses were the outcome of the orders that included a current minister and former ministers, in addition to former parliamentarians, governors, and current and former directors-general, while the authority did not reveal the names of these people or the charges against them.


Iraq is among the most corrupt countries in the world, according to the Transparency International index over the past years.


And last October, Iraq held early legislative elections that came as a result of large-scale demonstrations in the country in October 2019 mainly calling for an end to the octopus of corruption.


The leader of the Sadrist movement focused in most of his appearances after his movement won the electoral merits on the priority of fighting corruption, considering that removing the corrupt is at the core of his reform program.


Observers believe that Al-Kazemi’s move in this file and at this particular time is a prelude to his assumption of the premiership in the next government, which has become clear that the Sadrist movement will form it despite the objections of the forces loyal to Iran.


Followers point out that Al-Kazemi, despite the meager number of achievements during his current term, does not deny that he is a figure who has proven ability to deal effectively with the ramifications of the political scene and has shown great pragmatism in dealing with external forces interfering in Iraqi affairs.


butterfly    Observers say that there is no external veto on Al-Kazemi, even from Tehran, which does not find harm in re-assigning him as long as it does not pose a threat to its interests.


Observers point out that the only obstacle for Al-Kazemi is the position of the militias, but the latter does not have much to do if Al-Sadr insists on naming him and if he wins the support of the Sunni and Kurdish blocs.


Last Monday, Al-Kazemi visited the leader of the Al-Fateh Alliance Al-Hadi Al-Amiri in his office in Baghdad, while the purpose of this visit seemed to soften the atmosphere, and soften the position of the militias towards him.   rawabetcenter.com
