Parliament decision: There is no agreement to hold a session of the House of Representatives
Askar told Shafaq News Agency, "The coordination framework, political blocs and the Iraqi street are all waiting for a date to hold a session of the House of Representatives," noting that "Parliament has been inoperative for more than a month, and we need to legislate many laws, monitor the work of the caretaker government and form the new government."
He added that "the Presidency of the House of Representatives discussed more than once to hold a session of the House of Representatives, but until this moment there is no agreement or setting a real date for holding the session."
And Askar said, "As a member of the coordination framework, I ask Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr to give an order to the protesters to withdraw from the parliament building for the purpose of expediting the holding of the session and forming the new government," stressing that "the parliament building is the best place to hold the session."
Members of the coordination framework are deliberating that there is an agreement with Muhammad al-Halbousi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, to hold a session to elect the president of the republic and assign the framework candidate to form a government.
