Baghdad: Muhannad Abd al-Wahhab
Yesterday, Wednesday, the Iraqis followed with great interest the session of the Federal Supreme Court, which was broadcast live, and its consideration of the challenges regarding the constitutionality of the first parliament session, which was postponed to next Tuesday.
Legal experts pointed out that the postponement is due to the failure to complete the investigation procedures to decide on the appeals, and it is not the first time that the court is going through a new test of justice and says the final word in the constitutional dispute.
Political analyst Hafez Al Bishara said, in an interview: “The Federal Court is in real embarrassment, because the appeal submitted by MPs (Bassem Khashan) and (Mahmoud Al-Mashhadani) is considered and holds a peremptory degree and the court must take it, and when the judiciary is realistic, it takes with such objections.
He added that "the decision of the Federal Court is related to the fate of Parliament and the political process, and depends on it the continuation of the state of justice in the formation of the rest of the authorities," noting that "from the other side, there are pressures on the Federal Court from the influential political forces that want to move things in any way and pass the stage, in addition to The presence of external pressures on the entire political process.”
He pointed out that "the Federal Court has respectable Iraqi judges who have their reputation and history and do not accept submission to anyone," pointing out that "what the court adheres to is the extent to which the political forces are able to find political consensus and come up with a solution to this crisis that helps them make their decision more freely, and perhaps their decision will be It is marginal after the agreement between the political blocs in order to issue intermediate rulings that satisfy all parties.”
For his part, legal expert Ahmed Al-Abadi stated in an interview with Al-Sabah that “the court’s postponement of the issue of challenging the constitutionality of the parliament session came because it did not complete all its investigative procedures.”
He added that "the court has the right to postpone the pronouncement of the verdict several times until the completion of its legal and investigative procedures," noting that "the Iraqi constitution grants the Federal Court clear powers and has the final say in all constitutional issues."
Yesterday, Wednesday, the Federal Supreme Court announced the postponement of the plea to challenge the constitutionality of the first session of Parliament until next Tuesday, January 25, and contented itself in the session, which was broadcast live, to take the statements of the two parties to the case, the representative (Bassem Khashan) and the representative of the representative (Mahmoud Al-Mashhadani) on the one hand. And the deputy speaker of the current parliament (Mohamed Al-Halbousi), on the other hand.
In his reading before the court, Representative Bassem Khashan stressed that everything that took place in the first session of Parliament is far from the constitution and contains many legal violations, calling for the session and its outcomes to be considered “unconstitutional and to be repeated.”
