Shafaq News/ Iraqi politician Mithal Al-Alusi considered, on Thursday, the decision of the Federal Supreme Court (the highest judicial authority in the country) regarding the unconstitutionality of extending the work of the Kurdistan Parliament as "biased and invalid".
Al-Alusi said in a tweet on the social networking sites "Twitter", "It turned out that three judges did not sign the ruling issued by the (Supreme Federal Court) against the Parliament of Kurdistan, the security and livelihood of the Kurds of Iraq and a million Arabs living in Kurdistan."
He added, "Since matters relating to Iraqi national security must obtain the approval of all judges," adding that "the so-called court decision is biased and invalid."
At the end of last May, the Federal Supreme Court ruled that the extension of the work of the Parliament of the Kurdistan Region is unconstitutional.
The President of the Federal Court, Judge Jassim Muhammad Abboud, said, by reciting the text of the decision; The constitution stipulates that the term of parliament be four years, and any other legal text that contradicts the constitution is considered null.
The President of the Federal Court added: "Considering the fifth session of the Parliament of Kurdistan finished and what was issued after the extension is constitutionally invalid."
He pointed out that "the constitution is the owner of abstract and permanent authority (...) and the constitution is a legal document that imposes its rules on all authorities, and that the constitution regulates the basic principles on which the political process is based, including the rule of law and that the people are the source of authority."
The President of the Federal Court continued: "Maintaining the continuity of the electoral process is very important because the continuity of the elections is a pillar of the democratic system."
