Abboud added in an interview with the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "all federal authorities must work under the Constitution to put the interest of the people in their calculations when any action, pointing out that the Federal Court under article 93 of the Constitution exercises its powers starting with monitoring the constitutionality of laws and interpreting texts in addition to the mentioned competencies." Guardianship of the Constitution and Dissolution of Parliament "The purpose of the Federal Court is to safeguard the constitution and prevent the abuse of powers," he added, stressing that "no proposals have been made by us regarding granting the Federal Court wider powers." He added that "the problem that Iraq is going through is not in the constitution or the competencies of the Federal Court, but the problem in the application of the constitution and mishandling it," noting that "the dissolution of the Federal Court or the replacement of its members or how to refer members to retirement is done through the Constitution, and that the Federal Court is a financially and administratively independent judicial body and exercises its powers following what is stated in the Constitution." "The Federal Court is the guard over all powers so that they do not exceed the constitution and it is not its prerogative to dissolve parliament and that the constitution has drawn up the ways and bodies that have the right to dissolve it," he said. Resignation of Sadrist Bloc Members He pointed out that "the issue of the return of the resigned representative cannot give his opinion in this regard because it becomes the subject of discussion among all members of the court and therefore must be discussed in a constitutional light," pointing out that "there are several lawsuits filed regarding the resignation of the deputies of the Sadrist bloc and some of them have been rejected because the method of their establishment is incorrect, while other cases are still pending that will be considered in due course." He stressed that "the lawsuit filed to challenge the resignation of the representatives of the Sadrist bloc was not carried out by the stakeholders (Sadrist Movement) but was filed by parties that have no legal relationship with this issue," pointing out that each lawsuit has its circumstances, but the interest of the Iraqi people is above all. Elections Law "The Federal Supreme Court has ruled that a section of the articles in the electoral law is unconstitutional and parliament must enact legal articles within the law to replace these articles and no elections can be held unless the electoral law is fully completed, including the articles that have been repealed," he said. He pointed out that "the election of the President of the Republic in accordance with article 70 is clear and cannot be exceeded, and that the court applies the constitution in accordance with the supreme interest of the people," pointing out: "In constitutional jurisprudence, there is the subject of reversal, and this is possible for the constitutional courts to modify some of their opinions regarding legal principles, and not regarding judgmental decisions issued by the Federal Court." He pointed out that "the Federal Court if it considers that it is in the interest of the people to reverse its opinions, it will change its consideration in a way that does not contravene the Constitution." He added that "the representative does not represent himself but represents all the people and the parliament must work in the interest of the people, especially the legislation of the budget law," noting that "the failure to complete the federal powers, including the executive branch, was not completed due to the non-election of the President of the Republic, and that the Constitution created the powers for the benefit of the people and not for their benefit." Budget Law He pointed out that "the members of parliament are not only their tasks to work in parliament, but they must work for the interest of Iraq," pointing out that the current government is a caretaker government and cannot send the budget law, and the legislative authority must overcome differences and work for the people, noting that "the Federal Court has not been presented to it concerning the budget law in the caretaker government." He added: "The budget law can only be sent to parliament by a permanent government," pointing out that Iraq now suffers from two big things, the first of which is political differences and the second is corruption and not the problem of Iraq in the constitution. Political blockage He clarified that "the main cause of the political blockage in Iraq are political differences," noting that "corruption hinders the building of the state, which is now two types: corruption of great importance, and the other of less importance, and that the Iraqi citizen has lost his confidence in the public function, public money is inviolable and must be protected." He explained that "the supervisory bodies represented by the Federal Board of Supreme Audit and the Integrity Commission have not yet put an end to corruption in Iraq, and the state cannot be built as long as social justice is absent, and there is no real intention to end corruption." He explained that "the caretaker government in general considered resigned, and does not have the right to dismiss ministers or appoint higher degrees, and there is a lawsuit filed regarding the resignation of Finance Minister Ali Allawi and set a date for its consideration." Oil File He pointed out that "oil and gas are the property of the people, and must be acted upon by the people, not a particular authority, and that the Federal Court said its statement regarding oil and gas in the Kurdistan region and the implementation of this decision lies with the competent authorities according to the interest of Iraq and not to sacrifice its interest." He pointed out that "the establishment of the National Oil Company and the assignment of Minister Ihsan Abdul Jabbar is illegal and the Federal Court has already been challenged before it by a previous decision of the law of the company and annulled many substantial articles, and thus the formation of the National Oil Company cannot proceed with the abolition of these articles unless other articles are legislated to replace the articles annulled by the Council of Representatives.

UN urges countries to raise social benefits and wages as inflation rises 41 minutes ago The United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights stressed that countries must ensure that social benefits and wages increase as inflation rises, or people may starve or freeze in the cold this winter. "It is not an exaggeration to say that we will lose lives if governments do not raise benefits and wages in line with rising inflation," said Olivier de Schutter. “With regard to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is the most vulnerable groups that pay the price for global events. The combined crises are expected to push an additional 75 to 95 million people into extreme poverty this year alone. "Whether it's in Europe, where inflation has hit a record 10 percent, or in sub-Saharan Africa, where food prices have risen by nearly 24 percent, household budgets around the world are expanding beyond the meltdown." "This means that more poor people will starve or freeze from the cold this winter unless immediate measures are taken to increase their income," he said. The UN experts do not speak on behalf of the international body, but they are tasked with informing the Human Rights Council of their findings. De Schutter urged governments in the northern hemisphere to move quickly to insulate homes before winter sets in. "The failure to act in this area is simply due to a lack of political will," he said. He explained that insulating homes before winter "will not only contribute to lowering energy bills for low-income families, but will also significantly reduce carbon emissions." He also urged governments to involve the poor in designing policies to address the rising cost of living. “For too long, misguided poverty reduction policies have completely failed to reach those in need, which means that poverty is simply passed from one generation to the next,” he said.

  10. After the "Sadr Challenge"... American questions determine what is expected of the Sudanese government 2022-10-17 08:46 A-AA+ Shafaq News/ The American "Queens Institute" raised a set of questions and observations about the developments of the new political scene in Iraq, after the "Sadrist Challenge" page was closed. The American Institute, in a report published in English, and translated by Shafak News Agency, indicated an attempt to turn the outgoing Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi into a "scapegoat" for rampant corruption, at a time when it is necessary to wait to see how the Prime Minister-designate, Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani, will act regarding a series of files, Among them are reform, how to deal with the Sadrist base, the US military presence, the budget of the Popular Mobilization Forces, and the existing threat from ISIS. After the American report indicated that the Sadrist leader Muqtada al-Sadr, who was defeated by maneuvers and weapons, no longer had a rational path to power, he made it clear that after a quick sequence of events on October 13, Abdullatif Rashid was elected to the presidency, who assigned Al-Sudani to form The government, which may mean that "the crisis that afflicted Iraq since last year, has ended." The report added that the page "the Sadrist challenge has been categorically closed," stressing that there will be no new elections before another three years, unless there are surprises. He also pointed out that the issue of al-Sadr's continuing influence through senior bureaucrats whom he placed in a number of ministries depends on whether al-Sudani embarks on a purge of his appointees, similar to al-Sadr's commitment to his opponents. After noting that al-Sadr's response to what happened politically by choosing "Rasheed and al-Sudani" was "violent" as he prevented his supporters from dealing with the new government, the report said that the new leadership, in its quest to maintain the legitimacy of its broad support base, may look for some way from In order to tempt Al-Sadr to return to the game. He continued, "The way forward seems ambiguous," adding, for example, that the new team moved in order to prevent Al-Kazemi from leaving Iraq in an attempt to make him a "scapegoat" for the rampant corruption that had prompted many Iraqis to vote for Al-Sadr. While the report questioned what these developments mean for US-Iraqi relations, it said that for Washington, Al-Sudani is the "most logical" candidate among the names proposed by the coordination framework, noting that he is an expert technocrat who previously served as Minister of Human Rights and Minister of Labor and Affairs Social, and that "his blood is less bad than some of the other candidates." While the report stated that Al-Sudani was considered a product of former Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki, he (Al-Sudani) separated from the Dawa Party, and the extent of Al-Maliki's controversial influence on him is not yet clear. In any case, the report considered that there are some difficult political choices for the Sudanese, who will soon have access to the federal funds bloated since last year due to oil revenues, noting that it is likely that the Sudanese, in order to deal with the state of discontent that exists since the 2019 protests, to Using the huge funds available in the state treasury to provide jobs in the public sector for unemployed youth. However, the report added that it is not yet clear whether Al-Sudani will move through the ministries and parliament to confront the three major issues facing Iraq, which are corruption, the failure of economic reform, the challenges of climate change, and keeping ISIS in its impasse. After the report indicated that Al-Sudani is "viewed as a weak leader," he said that the United States would pursue one of the issues represented in the funds allocated to the regular army and the anti-terrorist apparatus in the budget compared to the funds that would be allocated to the "Popular Mobilization." He added that Al-Sudani must also determine how to deal with Al-Sadr and his base loyal to him, as if he is completely excluded from the government, he may choose to create chaos, adding that after Baghdad prepared for the possibility of large-scale demonstrations after the election of Rashid as president a few days ago, nothing has happened. It happens, but he pointed out that it would not be wise to take this calm for granted, as long as Sadr is the one who moves the stew pot. In addition, the report indicated that it is not clear the nature of the coordination framework’s position on the US military presence, recalling that the decision of former US President Donald Trump to assassinate the commander of the Iranian Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, and the deputy commander of the Popular Mobilization Forces, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, on January 3, 2020, It stimulated the Iranian-backed militias of the Popular Mobilization, and raised public demands calling for the departure of US forces. While the report pointed out that the Hashd al-Shaabi's relationship with the United States has become more complex, it considered that the forces of the Hashd, now in power, may be reluctant to make drastic changes. But he added that one of the indicators is what the new government will do in order to curb the military operations carried out by Washington in Iraq, which target the Popular Mobilization Forces. The report concluded by saying that "the most worrying" is the potential impact of Nuri al-Maliki on the new prime minister, recalling that Washington holds al-Maliki responsible for creating the conditions that allowed for the incubation of ISIS in Iraq, pointing out that what is worrisome is the possibility of the recurrence of such a method of discriminatory rule.
