How many deputies does the "largest bloc" of the Sadrist movement have?
The source told Shafaq News Agency, "The list presented by the head of the Sadrist bloc, Hassan al-Adhari, to the elected speaker of parliament included only 76 Sadrist deputies, without the names of the representatives who joined the Sadrist bloc from other blocs."
Prior to that, while President Mahmoud al-Mashhadani presided over the session, the coordinating framework submitted a request to be considered the largest bloc with a list of 88 deputies, according to what the framework announced.
This angered the Sadrist bloc, which a number of its deputies entered into a verbal altercation with the tire's deputies.
During the first session, Muhammad al-Halbousi was elected to head the parliament for a second term, and the leader of the Sadrist movement was the obligatory governor and the representative of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Shakhwan Abdullah, as his two deputies.
The coordination framework said in a statement, Sunday, that it does not recognize the outcomes of the first session, considering it illegal in the absence of the head of the year.
The independent deputy, Basem Khashan, revealed on Monday his intention to file a complaint with the Federal Court to challenge the election of the Presidency of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, yesterday, for constitutional violations.
"I am currently working on submitting a complaint accompanied by all the evidence and documents, in addition to the video clips, which prove the invalidity of the election of the Presidency of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, yesterday, due to the legal and constitutional violations that accompanied the session," Khashan told Shafaq News.
For his part, the media center of the Federal Supreme Court confirmed, in a statement received to Shafaq News Agency, that "there is no truth to what some are circulating regarding giving a prior opinion of the Federal Court, whether from its president or one of its members, regarding the procedures of the parliament session held on January 9, 2022."
The Federal Court called on all parties to "be careful not to attribute any opinion or statement to the Federal Supreme Court, because this will expose whoever issues it to legal accountability."
