Between rights and duties, many officials have fallen into the trap of powerlessness. At a time when an official is given a set of rights such as immunity and others, he has duties that he must abide by. Immunity is a right that does not negate the duty to respect the law and not protect those who dare to do so. Signing in red is a right, but it does not negate it. The duty of humility and non-brutality, and protections are a right, but they do not cancel the duty of discipline, and all the violations made some legislative and executive figures transcend the law until the situation reached some of them to prevent the enforcement of the law that was put in place to serve the country.
Ali al-Baydar, a political affairs analyst, said in an interview with "Al-Sabah": "The State of Law Coalition's decision to dismiss its deputy is evidence of a state of maturity within the political scene and the absence of support and cover for many disgraceful behaviors committed by some parties."
Al-Baider wished "to generalize the experience of the rule of law on issues related to corruption, government failure, and even loyalties to other than the state or the homeland, or to invest the parliamentary role in secondary details by making the representative a part or a tool to appoint the citizen or meet their needs," noting that "this is what the legislative and oversight institution has lost its value." And make it harnessed for special agendas or narrow goals.”
He continued: "Therefore, the (State of Law) step represents a shift in the course of the process of political immunity enjoyed by the deputy or minister, and we hope that this infection will be transmitted to other parties and invested in creating a new culture that (no one is above the law) and that (no one has absolute power). ) on the exercise of different roles, and thus we can reach a better political performance that transcends all the crises that occurred and produced a turbulent or chaotic scene or that was absent from the law, so what the (State of Law) took to take the measure restores to the Iraqi street its confidence in the legislative and oversight system, and that immunity It is not a means to practice everything that exposes the legislative authority to criticism.
For his part, writer and political researcher Dr. Qassem Balshan Al-Tamimi said, in an interview with "Al-Sabah": "Trust between the ruling and non-ruling political class is almost completely lost, and this mistrust made the ruling political class look for any outlet for it to restore confidence, even if In an easy way, and the best evidence is what happened a few days ago and what the (State of Law) bloc did and the dismissal of one of its deputies, following the deputy’s exploitation of immunity and helping transgressors of the law.
He explained, "As soon as the (State of Law) announced the dismissal of the deputy, it was a quick positive step to absorb the anger of the masses, and I believe that this matter may restore confidence in the legislative authority, albeit in an easy way," noting that the issue of restoring confidence between the ruling political class and the citizen is not an easy matter, considering That this class or the vast majority of them works to weaken this trust through behavior and behavior that is far from the bonds of strengthening trust.
He stressed that "the ruling political class represented by the House of Representatives and members of the political blocs is still far from the concerns and needs of the citizen, and this matter is sufficient to help the continuation of mistrust between the two parties, and what the (State of Law) has done by dismissing one of its members after adopting the defense of two girls." Their insults to the law and the state do not intercede for them to restore confidence with the citizen without taking real and effective steps, the least of which is offering an apology and compensation to the assaulted officer.”
