A member of the House of Representatives on the National Axis Alliance, on Thursday, attempts to pass a law allowing foreigners to obtain citizenship after one year of his presence in Iraq. 

"The parties are trying to pass a law that allows the foreigner to obtain Iraqi nationality after a year of his presence in Iraq, even if he entered the country illegally," said MP Mohammed Karbouli, in a tweet through his Twitter account. 

Karbouli stressed, "We will not hesitate to address the prevention of the issuance of this resolution."

The Iraqi Council of Representatives has completed the first reading of the draft amendment to the first law of nationality.
