    [size=52]Christian parties criticize the Federal Court's decision regarding the regional quota: a decision that undermines the foundations of democracy[/size]

    [size=45]Yesterday, Wednesday, Christian parties in Iraq criticized the decision of the Federal Supreme Court regarding the decision to abolish the minority quota in the Kurdistan Regional Parliament, considering this a decision that undermines the foundations of democracy.[/size]
    [size=45]The six parties, namely the Assyrian Democratic Movement, the Beit Nahrin National Union Party, the Chaldean Syriac Assyrian People’s Council, the Sons of Two Rivers Party, the Assyrian National Party, and the Beit Nahrin Democratic Party, said in a statement that “the Federal Supreme Court in Iraq decided on February 21 2024 decision in Case No. 83 and its units No. 131 and Federal No. 185, according to which the quota seats for national minorities in the Parliament of the Kurdistan Region (Syrian Chaldeans, Assyrians, Turkmen, and Armenians) that were approved in accordance with Law No. 1 issued in 1992 and its amendments, according to which the first democratic elections were held for the Parliament of Iraqi Kurdistan, were abolished, and those “It was the first time that these nationalities participated in legislative powers according to their will.”[/size]
    [size=45]She added, “The cancellation of the seats of the Chaldean Syriac Assyrian, Turkmen, and Armenian components by the Federal Court is considered a clear constitutional violation, as the permanent Iraqi constitution guaranteed the rights of all components of the Iraqi people, and affirmed the rights of Iraqi national and religious minorities in several articles, including Article 49 and Article 125, and their representation in the executive authorities.” Judicial and legislative.”[/size]
    [size=45]She explained that “this decision undermines the foundations of democracy, pluralism, and peaceful national and religious coexistence, on which the political experience in the Kurdistan region was based, and it is also a dangerous indicator of the decline of democracy, human rights, and national partnership, which are the basic principles on which the political process in Iraq was based after 2003, and that Going down this path inevitably leads to further restrictions on the basic freedoms and rights that were achieved with the blood and sacrifices of the Iraqi people, including the national minorities who made huge sacrifices over the past decades in order to obtain their just and legitimate rights.”[/size]
    [size=45]She pointed out that “the people of these minorities feel that the Federal Court’s decision to cancel their right to representation in Parliament is a political message that carries dangerous meanings, the first of which is the retreat from recognition of their national presence within the national fabric, whether in the Kurdistan region and later throughout Iraq, and this matter paves the way for a return to The policy of eliminating the other who is different, nationally and religiously, begins with the small national and religious minorities, then to the larger components, leading to the return of the concepts of political tyranny and the dictatorship of the majority that the Iraqi people got rid of after long decades of struggle and sacrifices.”[/size]
    [size=45]She continued, "In light of this difficult situation in which these minorities live, we call on the national political forces to support their Iraqi national rights and to affirm the unconstitutionality of this Federal Court decision, and to consider it a political strike directed against their rights unjustly."[/size]
    [size=45]In their statement, the parties called on the United Nations, the official sponsor of the Iraqi political process, and the international community to “play their role in supporting the rights of national and religious minorities and consider what they are exposed to as a violation of relevant international conventions and resolutions.”[/size]
    [size=45]It demanded “the return of the quota seats for (Chaldean-Syriac-Assyrians, Turkmen, and Armenians) in the Parliament of Iraqi Kurdistan, and the legal guarantee that voting for these seats, as well as the seats in the Iraqi Parliament, be restricted to the people of these nationalities, and to distance their parliamentary representation from political and partisan conflicts by seizing it and employing it in Issues far from the representation of minorities and their just and legitimate rights.”[/size]
    [size=45]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.[/size]
