member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Hoshyar Abdullah, warned, on Tuesday, against the implementation of the framework agreement concluded by the Adel Abdul-Mahdi government with China because it is considered (invalid) and was not ratified by the House of Representatives, noting that not passing it to the Council is a clear constitutional violation by the executive authority.
Abdullah said, in a statement received by / Mawazine News / a copy of it, that "the implementation of the framework agreement is contrary to Article 61 of the Constitution (paragraph IV), which states that organizing the process of ratification of treaties and agreements is within the competence of the House of Representatives, and since this agreement did not It is passed in the House of Representatives and has not been approved by the House, its implementation is a clear constitutional violation by the executive authority, and it undermines the work of the House of Representatives and cancellation of its role. "
Abdullah added: "Also, Article 110 of the Constitution states that (the federal authorities are concerned with the following exclusive powers: First: drawing foreign policies, diplomatic representation and negotiating international treaties and agreements), and we all know that the federal authorities consist of the House of Representatives and the ministers and the judiciary, and therefore the Implementing this agreement without the knowledge of Parliament and without ratifying it is a violation of the constitution as it is null and void. "
He explained, "The executive authority has no right to unilaterally conclude international agreements in such exceptional circumstances with another country without passing them in the House of Representatives, and it was better for the government before embarking on this disastrous step to send all the agreements concluded in China to the House of Representatives for ratification, just as the The urgency in implementing them, identifying companies, opening bank accounts, and taking all measures with this speed indicates that there is no transparency in the agreement, and therefore this is a very dangerous step from the caretaker government, which is basically not entitled to start implementing such an agreement. "
Abdullah continued: "We are not against the agreement, it is the right of Iraq to conclude international agreements, but only on condition that it passes the constitutional frameworks and through state institutions and without canceling the role of the House of Representatives." Ended 29 / A 43
