Today, Friday, the Presidency of the House of Representatives commented on the message of President Barham Salih, in which he waved the resignation in response to the insistence of the political blocs to pass a candidate to the government that was not supported by the demonstrators.
"If the President of the Republic does not withdraw his message, it will be considered an official resignation within a week," Bashir Al-Haddad, the second deputy to the House of Representatives, said in a statement.
Yesterday, Barham Saleh, President of the Republic, presented a statement to Parliament in which he expressed his readiness to resign, while he left Baghdad for Sulaimaniyah.
"My national responsibility in this circumstance compels me to resign," Barham Salih said in a speech to Parliament. He added: "I submit my resignation in order to avoid violating a constitutional principle."
He added that "the position of the President of the Republic must respond to the will of the people", so "I place my willingness to resign in front of the Iraqi parliament." End / 25
