    [size=52]Parliamentary law excludes merging parliamentary and local elections: Financial and technical reasons are prevented[/size]

    [size=45]Baghdad / Firas Adnan[/size]
    [size=45]Yesterday, Monday, the Parliamentary Legal Committee ruled out holding parliamentary and local elections at the same time, and attributed this to legislative, political and financial reasons.[/size]
    [size=45]In a related context, she described the decision to abolish the provincial councils as a "lapse", and talked about an increase in the rate of corruption of local administrations due to the absence of an oversight component.[/size]
    [size=45]A member of the committee, MP Saeb Khadr, said in an interview to (Al-Mada), "The provincial elections law No. 12 of 2018 was matured at the beginning of the current electoral cycle, and then it was voted on."[/size]
    [size=45]Khadr added, "The law in force adopted an electoral mechanism and the division of votes and districts, in contrast to the current parliament election law."[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out that “the conflict between the two laws makes it difficult to hold general and local elections at the same time as they are promoted in the media; For financial, legal and political reasons.[/size]
    [size=45]Khadr revealed, "There is a proposal to amend the local elections law submitted by the Regions and Governorates Committee, and it has been sent to our committee, but we have not formally discussed it yet."[/size]
    [size=45]Khadr admits, “The House of Representatives committed a mistake by canceling the provincial councils, and this procedure led to an increase in corruption; Because of the imbalance of the control component in local administrations.[/size]
    [size=45]A member of the Parliamentary Committee explained, "The governor began to work as he pleased, without supervision, and although these councils sometimes impeded the performance of local administrations, supervision is necessary."[/size]
    [size=45]Khadr stressed that "Article 122 of the Iraqi Constitution of 2005 stipulates the existence of provincial councils, and we cannot go beyond the administrative decentralization system."[/size]
    [size=45]He added, “Parliament can amend the law by reducing the members of provincial councils or changing electoral districts, but it is not entitled to abolish these councils; Because he will commit a violation of the constitution.[/size]
    [size=45]Khadr stated that "a number of members of the abolished local councils have lodged an appeal before the Federal Supreme Court, which we expect to issue a decision in favor of re-functioning of these councils."[/size]
    [size=45]And he stated, "Parliament and during its remaining work until early elections on the tenth of next October, will try to amend the local elections law."[/size]
    [size=45]Khadr concluded, "Failure to make the amendment during this period means leaving the matter to the next parliament, which will have two options, either to proceed with the local elections according to the law in force, or to make the amendment according to the vision of the multiple constituencies, which is an option we find the closest and most appropriate."[/size]
    [size=45]For his part, the legal expert Haider Al-Sufi said, in a statement to (the extent), that "the House of Representatives’s decision to cancel the provincial councils constitutes a clear violation of the provisions of the Iraqi constitution."[/size]
    [size=45]And Al-Sufi continued, "These councils take their support from the constitution, which is the supreme and supreme law, and it is not permissible to enact anything that contradicts it, and it was formed according to elections and no authority over it except the law, and it is not permissible to interfere in its work, so how will the matter be with the dissolution decision?"[/size]
    [size=45]He noted, "The current councils have ended their specified cycle according to their law, and therefore elections should be held to form new councils, and this is the task of the Election Commission in coordination with the relevant authorities."[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Sufi went on, "The constitution stipulates that the provincial councils represent the decentralized bodies in the federal system of government for the governorates that are not organized in a region, and therefore it is not possible to violate them under any pretext."[/size]
    [size=45]The House of Representatives had voted in conjunction with the demonstrations that began in October 2019 on the law to end the work of provincial councils.[/size]
