, the legal expert, Tariq Harb, separated, on Monday, the constitutional and legal steps until the approval of the new government in nine paragraphs.
Harb told Mawazine News, "The rest of the constitutional and legal procedures remaining until the formation of the new government: -
1 - After the Electoral Commission takes over the official announcement of the electoral results, names and political blocs have for those who object to the results three days from the day following the announcement of the results. To appeal the results before the electoral judiciary
2- The law gives the electoral judiciary seven days to issue a ruling on the appeal, and the decision of the judicial body will be final.
3- After completing the foregoing, the Commission shall present the electoral results in their amended form to the Federal Supreme Court, which certifies the final results of the elections. Usually, the approval process by the court takes up to three days.
4- Within fifteen days of the approval of the results, the President of the Republic shall call the new House of Representatives to convene by presidential decree.
5- In the first session of the new parliament, the session is held under the chairmanship of the oldest member.
6- The first session of the Council of Representatives is devoted to electing a president of this council, then a first vice-chairman and a second deputy, with the approval of an absolute majority of the number of members of the Council, i.e. with the approval of more than half of the members of the Council. Since the number of members of the Council is 329, it requires the approval of at least 165 deputies.
7- The first work done by the Council of Representatives after the election of the presidency of the Council opens the door for candidacy for the position of the President of the Republic, where the approval of two-thirds of the number of members of the Council is required in the first round, i.e. the approval of 210 deputies considering the number of members is 329. In the case of Talabani and Masum and the current president, then competition will take place between the candidates who obtained the highest number of votes, and whoever obtains the majority of votes in the second ballot, regardless of the number, is declared president.
8- The President of the Republic assigns the candidate of the most numerous parliamentary bloc to form the Council of Ministers within fifteen days. This number, as announced by the Electoral Commission and ratified by the Supreme Court, and not the bloc that consists in the House of Representatives, because the aforementioned Article 45 prevents the transition between representatives, after which, naturally, coalitions begin to achieve the majority required to vote.
9- The majority required to approve the new cabinet, the absolute majority of the number of deputies present. If the number of deputies present is 300, then the approval of 151 is sufficient for the prime minister and ministers. Ended 29/A43
