    Shafaq News/ The head of the Independent Commission for Human Rights in the Kurdistan Region called on the Federal Supreme Court to retract its decision in which it abolished the quota seats and the representation of minorities in the region’s parliament, considering that decision a “stab” against minorities and disregarding their rights.
    The head of the Independent Commission for Human Rights in the Kurdistan Region, Mona Yaqo, said in a press conference attended by a Shafaq News Agency correspondent, “The political parties resorted to the Federal Supreme Court as part of the political conflict with other parties, far from taking into account the representation of minorities, their presence, their historical depth, and the participation of some of them in The political struggle and armed struggle for many years completely ignored her right to represent herself.”
    Yaqo asked, “Is it reasonable to direct a political blow at a people that is more than seven thousand years old? While it was possible to solve the problem of deficiencies in the law in one parliamentary session and in a civilized manner,” indicating that “this people is the Assyrian people and the Christian component in general, and the matter also applies.” On our Turkmen brothers.
    Yaqo pointed out that “this new approach of the court, which it expressed through this decision, was for us, as minorities, an unexpected blow, disappointment, and a major political retreat, and what increased the state of uncertainty for us as minorities, among other things, is that this decision came devoid of justification, and this is not the case.” It is consistent with the provisions of Article 43 Fourth of the Internal Regulations of the Federal Supreme Court No. One for the year 2022.”
    Yaqo also pointed out that “the decision did not indicate the constitutional violations that the Kurdistan legislator committed, as it referred to Articles Two, First B and C, and Articles 16, 20, and 102, but it did not indicate the nature of the violation,” explaining that “the decision did not refer to constitutional articles that were closer to The subject of the lawsuit was that it would do justice to us as minorities, by which we mean Articles 49, paragraph one, and 125.”
    She explained, “While the decision guaranteed a quota for women at a high rate, that is, 30 percent, it did not guarantee, even in one word, a quota for minorities, and this is what aroused our curiosity. The quota either guarantees most of the groups that are called vulnerable groups in international law, or it rejects the idea.” The quota, in its entirety, is considered discrimination.”
    Yaqo continued: “We are committed to our legitimate right to defend the political participation of minorities and ensure that the national gains we have achieved are not reversed, and at a time when the region was still a beginner in the field of the entire political process, and this was in 1992, we offer the following solutions:
    First: We call on the Federal Supreme Court to ensure in its decision when printed and published what confirms respect for Articles 49 First and 125 of the Constitution in a clear and clear text, and for the Court to be a true defender of the right of minorities to political participation through the legislative authority in the Parliament of the Kurdistan Region.
    Second: We call on the President of the Republic of Iraq to act as a protector of the Constitution and as a defender of all segments of the Iraqi people, and to represent minorities in accordance with Article 67 of the Iraqi Constitution, which states: “The President of the Republic shall ensure compliance with the Constitution.”
    Third: In the event that the first and second demands are not met, we call on the political parties of minorities, and with the support of other active parties in the Kurdistan Region that are concerned with the issue of minority rights, after the decision is issued and published, to request redress for minorities, in accordance with Article 45 of the Federal Court’s bylaws, by retracting it. The article stipulates that “the court may, when necessary and whenever the constitutional and public interest requires, deviate from a previous principle it approved in one of its decisions, provided that this does not affect the stability of legal positions and acquired rights.”
    A Shafaq News correspondent said, after the press conference, recommendations were issued by the minority parties in the Kurdistan Region, addressed to the Federal Court, all the parties of Kurdistan and Iraq, and to the President of the Republic, asking them to cancel the decision after it was published in the Iraqi newspaper Al-Waqa’i.
    He stated that the attendees considered the Federal Court’s decision to transform the Parliament of Kurdistan, which brings together all religions, into the Parliament of Muslim Kurdistan, in which there would be no representation of the rest of the religions.
    On Wednesday of last week, the Federal Supreme Court (the highest judicial authority in Iraq) issued a number of decisions regarding the Kurdistan Parliament elections law, and also decided to dissolve the Independent High Commission for Federal Elections in place of the Kurdistan Parliament.
    The "Chaldean, Assyrian, Turkmen and Syriac" components in the Kurdistan Region considered the Federal Supreme Court's decision to dissolve the "quota" seats in the Kurdistan Parliament a "coup against the Iraqi constitution."
