The MP said the bloc Curran that "the law of the Federal Court agreed with the state law blocs to take some of their observations and which retained half of the current members of the court in accordance with the terms and conditions of the new law taking into account the balance."
Committee member pointed out that the legal negotiations on these laws will resume on Saturday between the political blocs to incorporate the law of the Federal Court on the agenda Monday's session. He pointed out that "Parliament took advantage of the presence of the political blocs and claimed discuss these important laws, some of which remained existed since the beginning of the current legislative session."
The decision of the House of Representatives Muhammad Al-Khalidi said that "the political blocs agreed on the disputed laws, starting on Monday."
He Khalidi that "the laws of contention is the law of the Federal Supreme Court, and amend the law on elections, the House of Representatives (16 of 2005), the Law on the Prohibition of the Baath Party and entities dissolved parties and racist activities and terrorist and expiatory, and the law of the first amendment to the law of the Supreme National Commission for Accountability and Justice (10 of 2008) , "he continued," as well as the Act to amend the Penal Code No. (111 of 1996), and amending the Criminal Procedure Code (23 of 1971), and the draft law book and sources of movable and immovable property belonging to the pillars of the former regime, the law abolishing the changes unfair administrative boundaries of the provinces and all districts and sub-districts as well as the law of parties. "
In the same context, says MP Hassan al-Yassiri, the other member of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, said that "the Presidency of the Council of Representatives with the political blocs agreed on the introduction of objections and observations of state law on the law of the Federal Court and voted upon at a meeting next Monday."
Yasiri said, in a statement to the "long" yesterday, saying that "the observations made by the political blocs is an exception members of the Federal Court of age set by law (70) years."
This may mean insistence by al-Maliki on the survival of Judge Medhat al-Mahmoud at the head of the Federal Court, one of the judges who are over the age of seventy.
Yasiri continued, "and it was agreed to let the judges and jurists, who hold degrees in universities process, combining action in the Federal Court and supervision on school because these are considered the owners of certificates and rare specialties."
He said MP from the state law, saying, "of other demands that took out the political blocs is not to put the names of the members of the court the new House of Representatives to keep it away from sectarian quotas were also in the selection of the Electoral Commission and human rights, accountability and justice, which has been selected its members according to sectarian quotas."
He stressed that "the names of the members of the Court will be presented to the Federal Council for approval, but he also said there is another problem the blocks are not the enactment of the Federal Council reduce this moment, and therefore blocs agreed to include it on the agenda session next Monday to display to read".
And a member of the Legal Committee noted that "the draft law of the Federal Court had previously been challenged by the Federal Court earlier which will create a problematic legal reading you will be considered to come first or second."
He disclosed that "the agreement between the State of Law coalition and the Presidency and the Legal Committee requires the maintenance of half of the members of the Federal Court the current condition of their submission to the specifications of the new law," explaining that "in the event of the formation of the new court will replace half of its members that are changed remaining but after half for the work of the Court and that the change is gradual. "
Yasiri pointed to "a problematic one unresolved after a coalition of state law insists that the President of the Court shall be the president of the Federal judiciary is real, while the draft law refers to a legal position."
The MP said the state law that "Saturday will see the discussion of this point, in the event of failure to reach agreement would resort of the Presidency of the Council of Representatives to the law to a vote in the event of failure to pass will be deported to the next parliamentary session."
Such a point of great contrast because al-Maliki's opponents succeeded in separating the post of President of the Judicial Council and federal Mahmkh through legislation voted upon months before the parliamentary majority and Maliki threatened to challenge it, which could raise the roof of haggling within the "basket of new laws."
