What a bunch of fools, and Jabouri in the lead position. Keep calling meetings (3 in one week, which would be a record for this parliament) to vote on something they really have no authority over. All the while, the 30 or so laws they failed to act on in the last 4 years and opt to pass on to next parliament sit there waiting for action. Can't kick these morons to the curb fast enough.

On the other hand, the legal expert, Tariq Harb, that the submission of a complaint to the United Nations against the Electoral Commission by 100 deputies is not true, noting that the continuation of the extraordinary meetings of parliament without achieving the quorum is very flawed, he said. 
"The United Nations, under its Charter, does not accept complaints from parties, but rather deals with governments and its members, that is, with countries and does not deal with international organizations or with individuals.
He added that the continuation of the meetings in this manner is very flawed, especially with the lack of quorum in return for the continuation of the calls of the Presidency of the meetings, noting that the callers to the emergency session represent only the losing parties in the elections. He ruled out war the possibility of Parliament to do something, especially since there is only one month left of parliament, calling on the affected parties to wait for the decisions of the committee formed by the  
Prime Minister.

BAGHDAD, May 28 (Xinhua) -- The Iraqi parliament on Monday approved manual recounting of 10 percent of votes in the May 12 parliamentary election amid allegations of fraud, forgery and irregularities.

With the attendance of 165 lawmakers at the emergency session, the parliament passed a draft bill to recount 10 percent of the votes.

And if one quarter of the 10-percent votes are found with irregularity, the recounting would be carried out for all the votes across the country, said a statement of the parliament.

The decision will also cancel the votes of the polling centers outside Iraq if irregularities were found, as well as the results of the "conditional voting" in the refugee camps, according to the statement.

The "conditional voters" refer to those who showed any IDs to prove their Iraqi citizenship instead of valid voting cards.

In addition, recounting of the votes at the polling stations in the ethnically-mixed city of Kirkuk will be held, as well as for some polling stations that were already cancelled by the electoral commission in the disputed areas claimed by both Baghdad central government and the semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

On May 19, the Iraqi Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) announced the final results of the parliamentary election, which showed that the al-Sa'iroon Coalition, led by Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, was the front-runner by winning 54 of the 329 parliament seats.

The al-Fath Coalition, led by Hadi al-Ameri, came in the second place with 47 seats, while the al-Nasr Coalition, led by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, came in third with 42 seats. The State of Law Coalition, headed by Vice President and former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, garnered 25 seats.

Many Iraqi parties, especially in the Kurdistan region and the disputed areas including Kirkuk province, have complained about irregularities and forgery in the parliamentary election.

The complaints put the electoral commission under pressure, as it has not carried out manual recounting of many ballot boxes and depended only on the electronic counting of the votes.

Earlier, Riyadh al-Badran, head of the electoral commission, told a press conference "there is no justification for a manual recount yet," despite many complaints about voter fraud.

On May 17, UN Special Envoy to Iraq Jan Kubis issued a statement, calling on the IHEC to carry out an immediate and thorough investigation into all complaints concerning the election.

The Iraqi parliament also called on May 19 for measures to instill confidence in the election process after receiving complaints from political entities about alleged irregularities.

On May 24, the Iraqi Council of Ministers (cabinet) met with top judicial and intelligence officials and the IHEC's security committee to discuss immunity of the electronic devices used in casting and counting the votes for the first time in the Iraqi election, a government statement said.

The cabinet appointed a special committee to investigate the allegations, whose results would be handed to the council of ministers, high judicial council and the federal court, according to the statement.

On May 12, Iraq held the first parliamentary election since defeating the Islamic State (IS) militant group in last December.

"

Harb pointed out that "there is no objection to the decision of the parliament to count and sorting the manual because it is auditing and inspection and make sure this does not harm the Commission, because the parliament the right to investigate the validity of the procedures as long as the subject does not reach the cancellation of the results, either if the cases of fraud, The judiciary in accordance with the provisions of the law of the Commission, especially as the electoral law required electoral justice. "

"

"Article (102) of the Constitution decided to submit the election commission to the control of the House of Representatives and this oversight something and supervision of the Commission another thing and the Parliament to question the President of the Commission in accordance with Article (61) of the Constitution and has no right to the Board of Commissioners, but that does not preclude the request to take Legal proceedings against them from the judiciary if proven. "

"The Constitution or the law does not prevent the appointment of judges as negotiators in the Council of the Electoral Commission if the law of the Commission is amended to reduce the duration of those present or submit resignations and has no relationship to the subject of separation of powers that the judge acts as a commissioner and not as a judge in a court.
