    Today, Saturday, the Iraqi parliament is supposed to resume holding its sessions after the end of its legislative recess, which lasted for more than a month, amid an accumulation of suspended laws since several parliamentary sessions, and political differences over them.
    And on the eighth of last December, the second legislative term for the first legislative year of the parliament ended, and it entered a vacation that was reduced to only one month. 

    According to the rules of procedure of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, the legislative year of the parliament is supposed to hold 64 sessions, divided by 32 sessions in each legislative season, and this is taking into account the holiday between the two legislative terms, but only 27 sessions were held during the first year, most of which were in last November.

    Laws that have been deferred for years

    And according to the rapporteur of the Iraqi Parliament, Gharib Askar, the parliament will reconvene its sessions today, Saturday, and “it will have many tasks before it to legislate important laws, especially since there are laws that have been postponed for years due to lack of political agreement on them, in addition to an attempt to activate the oversight role of Parliament to monitor government performance.” And the implementation of the ministerial platform, which was voted on by the deputies.

    And Askar told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that “the most prominent laws that the parliament intends to legislate during its new legislative term are the budget law, which is awaiting its arrival by the government, the oil and gas law, and the information crimes law, with the amendment of the provincial elections law, and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and all these legislations require political consensus.

    Disagreements regarding the presidency of parliamentary committees

    He added that "the Presidency of the House of Representatives agreed with the leaders of the political blocs to resolve the presidency of the permanent parliamentary committees, with the beginning of the new legislative term, and that resolving this file requires negotiations and dialogues," stressing that "there are differences between the forces regarding this file, especially regarding the chairmanship of parliamentary committees." important, which are considered sovereign committees.
    Askar pointed out that "the House of Representatives has failed a lot in its work during the past months due [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] over the formation of the new Iraqi government, and that these differences have disrupted the legislative and oversight work of the Council, and therefore there is a determination to activate this work during the coming period, in order to compensate for the disruption."

    Last year witnessed severe political crises affecting Parliament, as it was subjected to storming [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Sadrist movement, in addition to the suspension of its work several times due to lawsuits filed before the Federal Court regarding objections to the election of its speaker, or because of the negotiations to form the government, the issue of which was resolved in last October.
    For his part, Sharif Salman, a representative of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, told Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, “The House of Representatives will face a legislative season in which the process of enacting important laws will intensify, in accordance with the political agreements between the allied forces in the State Administration Coalition (the Coordinating Framework Coalition, the Coordinating Forces, Kurdish, and the Sovereignty Alliance), especially the budget law as well as the oil and gas law, which will be the solution to all financial and oil disputes between Baghdad and Erbil.
    He stressed that "the House of Representatives will work to legislate laws that have been postponed since previous parliamentary sessions, due to the lack of political consensus on them, as their legislation during the next stage is necessary and important, because there is a political consensus between the large political forces allied in the state administration coalition, which is formed for the government, and which owns the majority." parliamentarians in the House of Representatives.

    Legislating controversial laws will not be easy

    He added that " [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] but rather this matter requires negotiations and agreements," noting that in addition to the parliament sessions, during the coming days, "there will be continuous meetings inside and outside the parliament between the leaders of the parliamentary blocs, and between the political leaders."
    The political forces are awaiting the adoption of laws according to what was agreed upon prior to the formation of the government. The leader of the Sovereignty Alliance, Hassan al-Jubouri, said, in a phone call to The New Arab, that "according to the political agreement, following which the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] there will be [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] release innocent people in prisons, and work towards dissolving the commission.

    He stressed that "the legislative chapter of Parliament will be crowded with the legislation of important laws that need political negotiations," warning that "any disagreement regarding these laws will be contrary to what was agreed upon within the State Administration Coalition, and this may prompt political parties to take political positions." new ones, which may lead to the overturning of the agreement.”
    He added, "Resolving the presidency of the permanent parliamentary committees will require meetings between the political forces to divide those presidencies among the blocs and parties, and then go towards choosing a chairman and two deputies for each committee chairman." He explained that "the first step to resolving this file will be through the distribution of new deputies, replacements of the Sadrist bloc to the permanent parliamentary committees, as these deputies are still outside the committees."
    The Legal Committee in the Iraqi Parliament had revealed earlier that there are 170 suspended laws from previous parliamentary sessions, which are currently being discussed and attempted to be included on the agenda of parliament sessions for voting, amid assurances that these laws are not passed without political consensus.
    The obstruction of laws in terms of approval or amendment is due to the absence of political consensus regarding many of them, such as budget laws, amending employee salaries, oil and gas, compulsory recruitment, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and others.
