The main issue here is that it's difficult to determine with certainty, but either Maliki's secretary for the CoM was questioned over this, or his secty of defense, or he was..the verbiage is difficult to discern..also, they're calling for a second "hearing" on the issue of Anbar, with Maliki in attendance. I do not like that IF the scty of the CoM was called, and he served as substitute of Maliki during this questioning, that it may not qualify for questioning in absence. A good aspect is the the UN rep for Iraq talked to Nujaifi about this questioning session.

No, today the parliament voted to rule that unless a candidate has been convicted in the courts of a crime, they can run for office. Surprising, but this idiot who happens to be the PM has not yet been convicted.
