    Shafaq News/ Will Parliament remain suspended? A question circulating in the Iraqi street and the corridors of politics, waiting for who will be the Speaker of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, about half a year after the removal of its former speaker, Muhammad al-Halbousi, from his position, and the ongoing conflict between the political blocs, especially the Sunni ones, and the division occurring between them, which It split into two fronts, the first adhering to Al-Halbousi’s “Taqadum” party, and the other represented by the rest of the Sunni blocs, supported by the coordination framework of the Shiite forces.
    The Parliament session tomorrow, Wednesday, is supposed to witness a vote on electing a new president, according to informed sources who reported to Shafaq News Agency, that there is a political agreement between the parliamentary blocs to hold an extraordinary session next Wednesday to elect the Speaker of the House of Representatives, at a time when the three Sunni blocs decided to “ Sovereignty, Determination, National Determination”, nomination of Representative Salem Matar Al-Issawi for the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives, succeeding the former President.
    In this regard, the leader of the Al-Azm Alliance, Azzam Al-Hamdani, told Shafaq News Agency, “The coordination framework is well aware that the issue of consensus and partnership is an important matter, and keeping the position of Speaker of Parliament vacant harms the political process as well as political and constitutional entitlements, and this framework is dealt with in a manner Positive with this file.
    Al-Hamdani stated, “Giving the coordination framework a week’s notice to the Sunni political forces to resolve the agreement on the presidency of Parliament is sufficient, especially since the Sunni political house unanimously agreed to nominate Salem Al-Issawi. (80%) of the Sunni component agreed on Al-Issawi, and this agreement and consensus is sufficient to pass it.”
    He added, "The rejection of Al-Issawi's nomination by one Sunni political party is normal, given that there is no political consensus in all the other Shiite and Kurdish political houses, and the rejection of Al-Issawi's nomination is only from the Taqaddam Party."
    The leader of the Azm Alliance confirmed that “the coordination framework is unanimous in supporting Salem Al-Issawi, as well as the consensus of the other political forces on electing Al-Issawi, especially since the coordination framework is well aware that the Sunni political forces are concerned with presenting candidates for the presidency of Parliament, and that is why the forces of the framework are supportive of Al-Issawi and the opposition political party is ahead.” for this nomination. 
    He continued, "The Sunni component cannot be reduced to one political party, but rather it is reduced to a group of Sunni political forces, and for this reason we expect that the next session will witness the vote on the Speaker of the House of Representatives and matters going in favor of Salem Al-Issawi, as the political majority supports him and there is no opposition or reservation to him." By any of the coordination framework forces.”
    While the majority is talking about choosing Al-Issawi as Speaker of Parliament, informed sources spoke to Shafaq News Agency about the rule of law favoring the other candidate, Mahmoud Al-Mashhadani.
    The sources pointed out that "the candidate, MP Mahmoud Al-Mashhadani, has a chance of competing for the position of Speaker of Parliament, with the support of the President of the State of Law, Nouri Al-Maliki."
    On Tuesday, April 30, the Taqadum Party, headed by former Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi, hinted at the option of withdrawing from the executive and legislative powers and from the entire political process in Iraq if the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives was granted to a candidate from outside the party.
    The Sunni political house in Iraq is witnessing intense competition to succeed Muhammad Al-Halbousi, whose membership in the House of Representatives was canceled by a judicial ruling, while his “Taqadum” party insists on retaining the position given that it has a parliamentary majority within the Sunni component (43 seats), at a time when its opponents see “sovereignty.” “Determination and decisiveness” means that the position belongs to the constituents without being bound by a specific political title.
    The Sunni House is seeking to quickly resolve the position of Speaker of the House of Representatives, which was supposed to take place after the first session of Parliament that followed Al-Halbousi’s exit, so that there would be a new working mechanism for the Council and to resolve the suspended projects and laws in this regard, “but the accelerating events and the entry of the Federal Court on the line disrupted the choice.
    The Iraqi Council of Representatives failed several times to choose a president to succeed Muhammad al-Halbousi, who was excluded from the position by a decision of the Federal Court, which ruled to terminate his membership.
    Since the termination of Al-Halbousi’s membership in the House of Representatives, the Council has held several sessions, but the issue was not raised in those sessions due to the heads of the political blocs not agreeing on the alternative candidate.
    On November 21, 2023, the Presidency of the House of Representatives decided to officially terminate the membership of the Speaker of the House, Muhammad al-Halbousi.
    In November 2023, the Federal Supreme Court, “the highest judicial authority in Iraq,” decided to terminate the membership of the Speaker of Parliament, Muhammad Al-Halbousi, against the backdrop of a lawsuit filed against him by Representative Laith Al-Dulaimi, in which he accused him of forging his (Al-Dulaimi’s) resignation from membership in the House of Representatives. As a result, The Federal Court ruled to terminate their membership (Al-Halbousi and Al-Dulaimi).
    On the evening of Saturday, January 13, the House of Representatives held an extraordinary session to choose the new Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the first round of voting ended with the victory of the “Taqaddum” party, Shaalan Al-Karim, with 152 votes out of 314 votes, followed by Representative Salem Al-Issawi with 97 votes, and Representative Mahmoud Al-Mashhadani received 48 votes, Representative Amer Abdul-Jabbar received 6 votes, and Representative Talal Al-Zubaie received one vote. However, verbal altercations occurred inside the Council hall, forcing the Council Presidency to adjourn the session until further notice.
    However, the next day, January 14, the two representatives, Youssef Al-Kalabi and Falih Al-Khazali, filed a lawsuit with the Federal Court that included a request to issue a state order to stop the election session until the case was resolved, due to suspicions of paying bribes to some representatives in order to vote for candidates for the Presidency of the Council.
    The candidate, Salem Al-Issawi, is Salem Matar Abdel Hassan, an Iraqi politician born in 1972, holds a master’s degree, and is a former member of the Anbar Governorate Council (2010-2014), and a representative in the Iraqi Council of Representatives for Anbar Governorate in its third session (2014-2014). 2018), and a member of the Iraqi Parliament in its current session.
    The other candidate is Mahmoud Daoud Salman Musa Al-Mashhadani, born on May 20, 1948. He is an Iraqi politician and parliamentarian. He participated in the political process after 2003. He was the first Speaker of the House of Representatives after the fall of President Saddam Hussein’s rule, and he was the head of the Political Bureau of the Preaching and Guidance Organization. He participated as a member in establishing the National Dialogue Council in 2004 and was elected as a member of the Constitution Drafting Committee in the same year. After winning membership in the Iraqi Parliament, he was elected President of the Council on March 16, 2006 until December 23, 2008. He was elected President of the Arab Inter-Parliamentary Union in 2008.
