The highest judicial authority in Iraq determines the mechanism for dropping the membership of the parliament
The court stated, in a statement today, that "the failure to decide on the objection by the House of Representatives on the validity of membership within thirty days from the date of registering the objection submitted during the legislative term is considered a rejection of the objection."
It also clarified that “the person who submits the objection may appeal before the Federal Supreme Court against the decision issued by the House of Representatives within thirty days from the date of its issuance or from the date the non-resolution was considered a refusal, and that those periods are inevitable and entail the forfeiture of the right to appeal.”
And she pointed out that “the decision issued by the House of Representatives that the membership of one of its members is not valid has acquired its final form by the end of the appeal period stipulated in Article (52) or the issuance of a decision by the Federal Supreme Court that his membership is invalid, which entails stripping him of the status of Parliamentary Prosecution and not allowing him to enjoy any of the rights And the privileges granted to members of the House of Representatives as of the date on which the Council’s decision acquires its final form, or from the date of the issuance of the decision of the Federal Supreme Court.
