MP: Tomorrow, the election law will pass by agreement on districts in Nineveh and Kirkuk
  
{Baghdad: Al-Furat News} The deputy of the Sa`irun Alliance, Salam Al-Shammari, said that what happened yesterday in the parliament session was a great victory for the people and an important step for holding the elections as scheduled.

Al-Shammari said in a statement that the Euphrates News Agency received a copy of it, that "Members of Parliament have said their word despite the presence of some forces that wanted to return to the old regime according to Saint Lego."
Al-Shammari added in a statement that the Euphrates News Agency received a copy of it, that "tomorrow will be completed by voting on the constituencies of Nineveh and Kirkuk in order to end the dominance of some political blocs," indicating that "Parliament freed the voter from their pressure."
Yesterday, Saturday, the House of Representatives approved the number of electoral districts in the electoral law for 16 out of 18 governorates, and the vote on Kirkuk and Nineveh governorate was postponed to two. ”
Parliament voted to approve 17 electoral districts in Baghdad, 6 in Basra, 5 each for Dhi Qar and Sulaymaniyah, and 4 each. From Babylon, Anbar, Erbil, Diyala, and 3 each for Najaf, Salah al-Din, Dohuk, Diwaniyah, Karbala, Wasit and Maysan, and two electoral districts in Muthanna Governorate.
The electoral districts are considered a moot point, and there have been arduous negotiations between the political forces over the past two months to agree on it.
The political blocs, especially the "big" ones, reject the multiplicity of electoral districts at the governorate level, because that would reduce their rates of victory in the elections, and give the small blocs an opportunity to obtain seats in Parliament, according to observers.
Early elections are scheduled to take place on June 6, 2021, as was officially announced last July.
The new draft election law is the biggest dilemma for holding elections, as the bill is still stalling since last year due to disagreements by political blocs over some of its provisions.
Late last year, the Iraqi parliament began discussing new legislation that would clear the way for the rise of independents and small blocs to parliament, in response to unprecedented popular protests pressure that began last year.

The electoral districts within the election law are considered a "point of contention" that arduous negotiations have taken place between the political forces over the past two months to agree on them, as the political blocs, especially the "large" ones, reject the multiplicity of electoral districts at the governorate level, because that would reduce their winning rates in the elections.
In a statement to Al-Sabah, a member of the House of Representatives from Mosul Governorate, Tohme Al-Lahibi, stated that "Parliament gave Mosul and Kirkuk 48 hours to agree on its departments, given the privacy of the two cities."

In addition, MP Ali Al-Badiri said, "What the government and the electoral commission need in order to launch and prepare for early elections, was through the election law that was voted upon and decided the electoral districts for most of the governorates." 
He added, "The ball is in the court of the government and the Electoral Commission to proceed with completing what they have to do in order to meet the demands of the masses and the authority’s directives to conduct transparent and fair elections that meet the demands of the Iraqi people and achieve true representation for them."
In another matter, the committee in charge of the electricity file submits its report to the House of Representatives during Monday's session. 
A member of the committee, Mudhar Al-Azirjawi, explained to Al-Sabah that the committee has finished its work on the electricity issue that the Iraqis have been suffering from for many years, to put it before the council’s eyes during today's session and take the necessary measures.
He added, "The report includes most of the corruption cases that existed at the time, which were submitted to integrity, emphasizing them and following up on all files in this aspect." 
He pointed out that "corruption in the electricity file will be in front of the public opinion and parliament to be discussed and taken."

Economy News _ Baghdad

A member of the Parliamentary Economic and Investment Committee, Ahmed Mazhar Al-Jubouri, called on the government to find quick alternatives to provide salaries for employees, retirees and social workers, indicating that the government's reliance on the borrowing law is surprising and evidence of failure.
Al-Jubouri said in a statement that Al-Iqtisad News received a copy of, that "there are a lot of revenues entering the state budget from many ministries and departments, and they must be classified and work to distribute salaries to ministries and authorities, respectively."
He added that "the government's reliance on the borrowing law without moving in other ways to provide salaries is surprising and raises many question marks, especially since Iraq has gone through the past years in more difficult and harsh conditions and with a sharp decline in oil prices without affecting the distribution of salaries and the specified time."
He explained that "Parliament has completed the first reading of the new borrowing law and will proceed with its second reading and will not pass it by the required amount of 41 trillion dinars, but will reduce the amount to a certain percentage."

Early elections are one of the achievements of the "October Revolution" (Ahmed Al-Rubaye / AFP)
 

The Iraqi Council of Representatives is scheduled to hold , at 6 pm today, Monday, local time, a session to resolve the controversy regarding the electoral districts in the election law, after it voted last Saturday for the districts in 16 governorates, excluding the Kirkuk and Nineveh governorates from voting due to political differences. 
Parliamentary sources confirmed to Al-Arabi Al-Jadeed that the political forces have continued disputes regarding the electoral districts in Kirkuk and Nineveh, pointing out that Kurdish deputies believe that the multiplicity of districts in the two governorates may reduce the Kurdish parties' chances of winning the elections.
The sources indicated that the parliamentary blocs had not reached a compromise during the last two days' dialogues, which prompted the Presidency of Parliament to hold the session at six in the evening instead of at one o'clock, in order to clear the way for political forces for dialogue before the session was held.
The Media Department in the House of Representatives sent a message to the members of Parliament, setting the sixth hour as the date for the session, confirming that the deputies of Kirkuk and Nineveh governorates will hold a meeting at one o'clock in the presence of the Legal Committee, with the participation of representatives who wish to attend.
The head of the Parliament's Legal Committee, Rebwar Hadi, confirmed that the House of Representatives did not vote on dividing the electoral districts in the governorates of Kirkuk and Nineveh and the disputed areas covered under Article 140 of the constitution, in which there is religious and national diversity, explaining in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency that the division Chambers in those areas will affect component seats.
And he indicated that the dialogues and discussions between representatives of the components are continuing without reaching any result, pointing out that the Presidency of Parliament has granted the political blocs two days in order to complete the division of districts for all provinces. He pointed out that the settlement of the division of districts depends on the extent of understandings and consensus between the political blocs.
For its part, a member of Parliament, Nada Shaker Jawdat, considered that dividing electoral districts would give the political blocs an opportunity to obtain a greater number of seats in the House of Representatives, warning in a press statement of the possibility of a reluctance to participate in the upcoming elections. 
She indicated that the educated classes have become the most unwilling to participate, calling for "correct education" in order to ensure effective participation in the electoral process. 
Jawdat pointed out that the conduct of elections and their success requires the existence of community awareness, calling for the removal of external interference and political money from the voting process.

 

 

In December of last year, the Iraqi parliament voted on a new election law that divided Iraq into multiple electoral districts, in response to popular pressure that was represented in the protest movement that was calling for early parliamentary elections and a change in the election commission. Already changed and vote on a new election law.
At the beginning of last August, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi decided to set the sixth of June 2021 as the date for holding early legislative elections, and announced his government's readiness to support the electoral process and provide its financial and technical requirements.
