The deputy head of the committee, Mohamed Al-Ghazzi, said, "The parliamentary legal committee is determined to legislate the Federal Court Law in the first session of the new legislative term, because of its constitutional importance in endorsing the results of the early elections to be held at the end of this year." Noting that "the agreement requires that the Federal Court Law No. 30 of 2005 be sent to the House of Representatives as quickly as possible to make amendments to Article 3 regarding the appointment or replacement of new members of the Federal Court to overcome all disputes."
For his part, member of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, Hussein Al-Oqabi, suggested that the political blocs are not committed to holding early elections, noting: The move to this procedure requires the agreement of all political forces and parties to dissolve the parliament after completing the election law and approving the budget law.
Al-Aqabi said, in a press statement: "The holding of early parliamentary elections depends on the completion of the electoral law, the amendment of the Federal Court Law and the approval of the Federal Budget Law." He considered that "these problems can be overcome if there is a real will."
On the other hand, the independent deputy, Basem Khashan, warned against efforts to disrupt the work of the Federal Court.
Khashan said, in a press statement that "the depletion of the decisions of the Supreme Judicial Council regarding the disruption of the work of the Federal Supreme Court is returning Iraq to the pre-Somalia stage."
He added that "the lack of the authority to certify the election results, which is the Federal Supreme Court, means that early elections cannot be held before a court law is enacted." Noting that "Article 130 of the Constitution does not allow the enactment of a substitute article from Article 3 of the law in effect for a court that is canceled by a judicial ruling that talks about the mechanism for the nomination of its judges, because any amendment to the court law must be subject to the provisions of Article 92 of the Constitution, and must be voted upon By a two-thirds majority, that is, at least 220 deputies. ”
He explained that "the law enacted by the House of Representatives must be consistent with Article 92 of the Constitution.
