Shafaq News/ The Secretary-General of the "Enough" movement, former MP Rahim al-Daradji revealed today, Tuesday, that he had filed a complaint against the Prime Minister, Muhammad Shia' al-Sudani, for not holding early parliamentary elections.
Al-Darraji said, in an interview with Shafaq News agency, that "a complaint was filed against the Prime Minister, Muhammad Shia'a al-Sudani, before the Federal Supreme Court for not adhering to the timings mentioned in the ministerial curriculum paper, and not adhering to the implementation of the agreement between the political blocs, which is an integral part of the government curriculum, and its strange circumvention of holding early elections."
And he indicated, “The government did not adhere to the government curriculum because what applies to (paragraph 11 of Second / the legislative axis of the curriculum paper related to the provincial elections) necessarily applies to (paragraph 3 of Second / the legislative axis of the ministerial curriculum paper, which stipulates holding early elections within a year from the date of formation of the government) and both paragraphs (11-3) are within the ministerial curriculum.”
The Secretary-General of the "Enough" movement added, "We filed a complaint with the Federal Court for not respecting the laws in force, not respecting the political agreement, not respecting the vote of the Iraqi parliament, and not respecting the constitutional oath."
The Iraqi Prime Minister, Muhammad Shia' al-Sudani, threw the ball of early elections into the court of the Iraqi parliament when he revealed, on April 23, 2023, that the decision of early or periodic elections is in the hands of the Iraqi parliament, explaining that his government is ready for any early or periodic elections, but that must be preceded by the parliament dissolving itself, and stating that "dissolving the parliament is one of the tasks and responsibility of the parliament itself, not the government."
Prime Minister Muhammad Shia al-Sudani pledged, during his presentation of the ministerial curriculum of his government, to hold parliamentary elections within a year, to amend the parliamentary election law within 3 months, in addition to holding provincial elections and setting a date for holding them in the government programme. The proposed ministerial curriculum also included affirming the government's commitment to building effective tools to fight corruption within a maximum period of 90 days from the date of its formation.
With al-Sudani's pledge to hold early elections, public positions were issued by political blocs present in the Iraqi parliament refusing to hold these elections. The most prominent of these was the position of the head of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, and some other forces within the coordination framework that support al-Sudani's survival.
