, on Wednesday, legal expert Ahmed Al-Abadi presented a detailed explanation of the powers of the caretaker government and the possibility of proposing laws and legislation.
In response to a question about why the current government has the powers to conduct daily business (only) and does not have full authority?, Al-Abadi replied, “As stated in Article 42 first and second of the internal system of the Council of Ministers No. 2 of 2019, which states the following:-
First The Council of Ministers continues to administer the day-to-day affairs of the state until the formation of the new government in the following cases:-
A- The end of the electoral cycle of the House of Representatives
B- Withdrawal of confidence from the Council of Ministers or its prime minister
C- Dissolution of the House of Representatives.
He added about the constitutional articles that define the authority of the caretaker government, that "the term caretaker was mentioned in Article 61 of the Constitution, item VIII / D."
He added, "The reason for defining the powers of the Council of Ministers is because the period of granting them confidence by the previous House of Representatives has expired, and they were not given confidence by the current House of Representatives, and that the role of the Council is limited to the conduct of daily business as stipulated in Article 42-Second, which defines the conduct of daily business." By
means of the conduct of daily affairs, it is intended to take decisions and actions that cannot be postponed, which would lead to the continuation of the work of state institutions and public utilities regularly and steadily, and does not include, for example, the proposal of draft laws or regulations for contracting loans or appointment to senior positions in the state and exemption from them or restructuring of ministries ".
