On Wednesday, legal expert Ali Al-Tamimi explained the extent of the legality of holding an extraordinary parliamentary session during the legislative recess of the House of Representatives, pointing out that the President of the Republic in accordance with the constitution must take over the functions of the Prime Minister due to the expiry of the caretaker government.
Al-Tamimi said in a statement to "Information", that "Article 58 of the Constitution states that the President of the Republic, the Council of Ministers and Parliament or 50 members within the House of Representatives may call Parliament to hold an extraordinary session, provided that it is limited to the topics that necessitated the invitation to him."
He added that "Article 57 sets the session for the parliament sessions with two legislative terms during one year of eight months, and defines the internal system, and the session in which the budget is presented does not end."
He indicated that "the deadline for conducting business for the Prime Minister specified in a month has expired, and the government has become unconstitutional, which the President of the Republic Barham Salih must not take over because the constitution stipulates that, especially after the vacancy of the position due to the government's resignation in accordance with Article 81". 25 n ended
