Iraq cancels parliament session as nationwide protests continue

ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Iraq has canceled a scheduled parliament session to vote on a reform package amid ongoing nationwide protests, sources said on Saturday.

Sources told Kurdistan 24 that the “emergency” parliamentary session scheduled for Saturday afternoon was postponed because of an absence of deputies.

Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi has called on parliament to vote on several reform measures to calm the anger of protesters. The Iraqi Parliament had previously said it would hold a session after the protests.

Demonstrations across Iraq began calmly on Friday but quickly turned violent, eventually resulting in the death of 42 people.

 

Friday’s chaos followed several days of calm after a week-long wave of deadly protests, which left at least 140 people dead and thousands more injured.

In the days following the first surge of protests, Abdul Mahdi attempted to calm demonstrators with promises of reform and a cabinet shuffle. 

So far, such moves have failed to quell the anger of the public, which continues to call for a complete governmental overhaul amid shortages of public services, high rates of unemployment, and chronic institutional corruption. 

The cancellation of Saturday’s session is expected to lead to further escalation as protests continue around the country.

Sources in Baghdad told Kurdistan 24 that demonstrators had gathered in public squares as well as in other areas across several southern provinces.

Protesters accuse Abdul Mahdi’s government of failing to fight corruption and improve services in the country.

Stupid question. If the Iranians are so in control in Iraq, why wouldn’t they pull the RV trigger and enrich themselves? 

 

What am I missing??

 

That is exactly the question I have asked myself over and over, since the Iranian puppet PM Mahdi and the Iranian influenced government took control.

 

Thank you stanleypower for asking,

I would think they must hold a massive amount of IQD. Would make what they got through the nuke deal look like peanuts. 

But then again they must steal a massive amount each day through the auctions. 

Thanks 3n1!

No surprise here. They can't break their mindset of stealing all they can, while stepping on the poor citizens. They've cancelled GOI session for less: cafeteria menu, sandstorms, re-runs on TV. Kudos to the members that actually showed up in hopes of getting something accomplished. This puts a real damper on the budget, monetary reform, replacing proxy positions. All the time, most gov officials are busy still stuffing their pockets with $$$ and the auctions continue, as the poor suffer. Pathetic.

So these GOI Career Criminal Politicians create this Massive Crap Sandwich that throws the entire country into chaos . . . then go to ground like frightened rabbits when the heat is on ? Only yourselves to blame. All you had to do was do your job and all this could have been avoided.

 

Someday, someone is going to write a book about post USA invasion Iraq from 2005 onwards. It will be a scathing indictment not only of Iraq; but I hope attention will be brought to bear on the IMF, World Bank and anyone else  ( USA - and WHY and on who insistence did we install Maliki ? ) that didn't or wouldn't step in and bring pressure onto these fools from the beginning. 

 

Where was the Oversight ? This was a country rebuilding from the ground up - new beginnings it you will; yet it was left to some of the most despicable criminals masquerading as " Politicians " 

 

$450 Billion unaccounted for ! ! ! Do you think a portion of the $$$$ from this EPIC money laundering enterprise, found it's way back to ( at the moment unnamed persons ) offshore shell corporations belonging to members of the IMF or WB ??? 

 

As I stated before, there's a Book in this for a most savvy investigative journalist type. :angry:

Might be a great time for the protesters to just move into Parliament and literally take over, specially since it is sitting there so vacant! The protestors could easily take over the duties of the little scared chicadees with them on the run!!

      Baghdad / news
      The political expert, Bassel Hussein, stressed that Parliament has no right to issue decisions dictating to the government what to do.
      Hussein said in a statement to "Al-Ikhbaria", that "it is not possible to cancel an agreement that was ratified by Parliament except by a law that recognizes two-thirds of votes, and this requires a first and second reading."
      He added that "a decision cannot abrogate a law and the law can only be canceled by law, and it is not within the authority of Parliament to issue decisions nor to dictate to the government what to do, so its monitoring and legislation do."
