    Baghdad - Nas  
    The Presidency of the House of Representatives announced the start of the second legislative term of Parliament, with the first session to be held next Saturday. This chapter is expected to settle the position on two controversial issues. The first relates to the general amnesty law, and the second relates to the provinces' shares of oil revenues.

    The controversy in the first case revolves around whether those accused of corruption cases will receive amnesty, in addition to amnesty for prisoners who were victims of malicious and sectarian acts during which they were subjected to violations that included forcing them to make confessions under duress.  
      
    The second issue is the sharing of wealth and oil revenues between the provinces. The necks extend to the quotas of the three Kurdish provinces, which are the subject of a dispute between the two main Kurdish parties, the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan. As well as shares of the province of Mosul, which is still suffering from the effects of destruction and displacement. Also, the share of the Anbar province, which is dominated by the Taqaddam party led by Speaker of Parliament Muhammad al-Halbousi, who wants to grant the province greater allocations, while the government of Muhammad Shia al-Sudani wants to weaken his positions with less allocations.  
      
    Observers expect that the new legislative term will witness a chaotic “settlement of scores” between the representatives of the various blocs, because there are reasons for conflict between each party and the other parties, and even within the components of one party as well. For example, representatives of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan want a predetermined quota for Sulaymaniyah province and not leave the matter to the Kurdistan Regional Government, which is led by the Kurdistan Democratic Party.  
      
    The general amnesty law raises sharp differences between the Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish political blocs combined. Some of them demand the adoption of the law to release those who were wronged during the era of previous governments, while others demand its abolition because it means “rewarding” the criminals and the corrupt for their crimes.  
      
    There is justification for fearing that the law will be a source of a deal that offers amnesty for those accused of corruption cases in exchange for amnesty for those accused of terrorism cases that were orchestrated during the sectarian confrontations throughout the years that preceded the emergence of ISIS.  
      
    Observers fear that the suspected parties will ensure that the amnesty includes corruption cases in a way that leads to blocking the already stalled investigations into the $400 billion that was wasted during the reign of Nouri al-Maliki’s government between 2006 and 2014, along with about another $120 billion that was looted and diverted to the country. Abroad in the following eras, and that was before the “theft of the century”, which included about $ 4 billion, was revealed in October 2021, and it has not been found yet.  
      
    In the midst of new corruption cases involving current officials, a member of the Iraqi Parliament, Rafik Hashim, called on parliament to legislate a law “from where did you get this” and to hold those responsible accountable for the size of their money and follow it up, saying that “activating the law of ‘where did you get this from’ within the dome of parliament is very important In order to stand on the level of corruption that took place during the previous sessions and years of officials and deputies, in addition to the three presidencies.  
      
    Observers say that anti-corruption cases should not acquit anyone over another, or accuse one without another, as long as everyone is involved in this or that case of corruption, money smuggling, and outrageous illegal wealth.  
      
    The issue of the general amnesty constitutes a complex for the Sunni parties, which promised their voters the release of tens of thousands of those arrested and tried during the sectarian war waged by armed Shiite groups in the provinces of Anbar, Mosul and Salah al-Din.  
      
    Earlier this month, Al-Sudani’s government referred the “combating enforced absence” bill to Parliament for approval, after it was suspended for several years by Shiite parties that refused to vote on it.  
      
    The Iraqi Parliament had tried to pass a law under the name of “protecting persons from enforced disappearance” in mid-2019, and after the first reading, the procedures for moving forward with its approval were halted.  
      
    Amnesty International calls on the Iraqi government to reveal the fate of 643 people who were kidnapped by armed groups.
