Shafaq News / A parliamentary source said, on Wednesday, that there is a political proposal to vote on the Federal Court and the budget laws in one basket.

The source said to Shafaq News Agency, that "there is a proposal among some political blocs that the vote on the Federal Court and the budget be in one basket, provided that the political blocs offer their concessions in exchange for voting on the two laws at tomorrow's session, Thursday."

The source pointed out that "the Shiite blocs have no objection to voting on the region’s share of the budget, as stated in the government text that the Kurdish blocs give up on the unanimous voting clause in the Federal Court Law."

The Federal Supreme Court is the highest court in Iraq, which has jurisdiction over constitutional disputes. It was established by Law No. (30) of 2005 in accordance with Article (93) of the Constitution. Its decisions are binding on all authorities, and it is completely independent from the regular judiciary and there is no connection between them. It is based in Baghdad and consists of a president and eight members.

Parliament had voted to amend a number of provisions of the Federal Court Law in effect on Monday, after it was unable to overcome differences over three articles in the new draft law for the Federal Court.

This amendment contravenes the Iraqi constitution, which stipulates in Article 92 / Second: “The Federal Supreme Court consists of a number of judges, experts in Islamic jurisprudence, and legal scholars, whose number is determined, the method of their selection and the work of the court shall be regulated by a law enacted by a two-thirds majority of the members of the House of Representatives. ".

Discussions are still ongoing in the corridors of Parliament to agree on the remaining articles to pass the new bill, in order to remedy the constitutional breach.

Legal expert: The continuation of Parliament sessions late at night violates the instructions of the official working hours
  
(Baghdad: Al Furat News) The legal expert, Tariq Harb, explained, on Wednesday, that the continuation of Parliament sessions for late hours of the night violates the instructions of the official working hours.

 

Harb told Al-Furat News that "the official working hours in all state departments are from eight in the morning until four in the afternoon, including Parliament, and that the employee cannot reach his department after the official working hours."

He added, "Parliament, in every small and large, is subject to controls and rights," indicating that "it is possible that an exceptional case occurs in parliament sessions, but it is not a general rule." 

He continued by saying, "Members of the House of Representatives must be alerted to the commitment to the session." 

It is noteworthy that the House of Representatives witnessed in the past weeks the last two days of holding sessions late at night and continuing until dawn hours.

A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Majida Al-Tamimi, criticized the timing of the Parliament's sessions at late hours, and said in a statement that "the times during which Parliament sessions are held during this period violate a person's biological clock," noting that "it is natural for a person's energy and activity to gradually diminish." From the early morning hours until the evening hours at the end of the day. "

Al-Tamimi said that "setting the dates for the assembly sessions in the evening is inappropriate, contrary to the hours specified for the official working hours," stressing that "it is assumed that work begins in the morning from eight o'clock and it is not permissible until late hours of the night or until dawn."

Well if you would get things done during regular "biological clock" working hours you wouldn't have to work overtime. And I feel so terrible for you poor representatives that the last two days you've had to work a few extra hours for the people you are representing who are living in poverty 24 hours a day and not just during their "biological clock" hours. 

These buffoons wouldn't know what a hard days work is if it jumped up and bit them in their assneck. Can you imagine these people vote for more days off but complain if they have to work an hour overtime? I know this thing is going to RV but it's going to take a miracle. Which is why I pray everyday because hoping these idiots do something on their own is hope against hope.

The Parliamentary Economic and Investment Committee announced, on Wednesday, that Thursday will be set as a date for voting on the 2021 budget bill.

The committee's reporter, Mithaq Al-Hamdi, stated in a special statement to NRT Arabia, today (March 17, 2021), that "Parliament Speaker Muhammad Al-Halbousi announced the vote on the federal budget laws and the Federal Court in tomorrow's session, Thursday."

He added, "All the paragraphs of the Federal Court law have been voted on, and the vote remains on the entire law, which needs a two-thirds quorum."

It is worth noting that the region’s share and the dollar exchange rate are among the most important obstacles to approving the budget, in addition to passing the Federal Supreme Court’s law, which is scheduled to be voted on in next Thursday’s session, which stipulated that the blocks pass it before returning to negotiations with the Kurdish side

Efforts to find understandings regarding the Federal Court law

 
  Baghdad: Muhannad Abdul-Wahhab 
 
The Federal Court Law faces political disagreements and several obstacles that prevent it from being passed quickly, while the Presidency of Parliament is working to bring it closer. 
Representative of the Forces Alliance, Raad Al-Dahlaki, told Al-Sabah: If the parliamentary session is not held today, Thursday, it will be held next Saturday, indicating that “the Federal Court’s law faces many obstacles, which are the basis for the difference of legislation in three controversial articles, so the road is not paved for approval Law". 
He added, "The Presidency of Parliament is currently working on converging views to pass the law in a compatible manner, and it is certain that we will soon reach the results of either passing or crossing into the budget law." 
Al-Dahlaki stressed, "The delay in the budget law due to the inconsistency on the Federal Court law, and if the Presidency finds that the Federal Court law faces major obstacles, it will go towards approving the General Budget Law. 
He explained, "The Iraqi constitution put legislation into the federal court law and created Sharia jurists within this legislation, and this increases the concerns of the political blocs, especially the political blocs that do not want the country to be managed in an Islamic manner and call for civil administration." 
For his part, the head of the National Approach bloc, Ammar Tohme, explained the constitutionality of the membership of Islamic jurisprudence experts in the Federal Court.
Tohme said, in a statement, that "there are objections to the presence of Islamic jurisprudence experts in the formation of the Federal Court, and the justifications for the objectors are not arrogant and clear of weakness."

Al-Skini: Space representatives and the Presidency of Parliament are deliberately holding the sessions at a late date
  
{Politics: Al Furat News} A representative of the Saeron coalition, Rami Al-Skini, commented about holding the House of Representatives’s presidency for its sessions in the late hours of the night, describing it as "deliberate."
 

Al-Skini pointed out, through the program “Alamastara,” broadcast by the Al-Furat satellite channel on Wednesday evening, that “the Presidency of the House of Representatives deliberately managed the sessions of the House in this way, and the legislation of laws and laws were not disciplined and violated the rules of procedure. The
life of the presidency also intended to deal in this way with the administration of Parliament and does not give The agenda is 48 hours before the timetable, and there are many MPs who are taking the green light while they are "aliens", via electronic entry. 
He said, "The House of Representatives is clinically dead and there are no manifestations of oversight or interrogation, and we fear that there will be deliberate delay in holding the sessions as well, especially with the presence of such a mentality to hold Parliament sessions at 3 am." .
And he indicated that "the Federal Court law faces two options, either the amendment or the approval of a new law, and the constitution has ruled to legislate the Federal Court with two-thirds of the number, and the amendment needs half plus one to be passed," noting that "obstructing its approval breaks the will of the Kurds to parliament."
"The expert in Sharia is not restricted to a specific sect, and Iraq is a pluralistic country, and it does not seek an Islamic state, but rather respects Islam, and the Federal Court’s law is not a text, and any new parliament can resort to amend it," Al-Skini added.
Regarding the approval of the 2021 budget, Al-Skini said, "The Presidency of the House of Representatives today is embarrassed to pass the draft federal budget bill 2021 and cannot be passed with a single basket, and that the parliament's vote against the will of the region is a healthy phenomenon," comparing "the region's allocations 11 trillion dinars and Basra 1 trillion dinars, given that The government owes it 11 billion petrodollars, and all the promises of successive governments are on paper. "
He added, "Some decisions pass by breaking wills, which is a health issue, and the draft budget has been stopped and not presented to its members is fear, and working with the budget needs a month after its approval, and this is a big delay."
Al-Skini concluded, "presenting the budget and the Federal Court in one difficult and incorrect agenda, and as deputies to Basra, proposing to establish a fund as a share of crude oil," noting that "hunkering down by its local government becomes one of the gates of corruption." 
Deep and thorny differences continue between the political blocs regarding the draft general budget bill 2021, prompting parties to those blocs to adopt the thesis of voting on the budget and passing it by "the majority" after the marathon rounds without reaching an agreement on it.
The deputies unanimously agreed on the passage node as a result of failure to agree on the Kurdistan region’s share in the 2021 budget for its failure to pay its oil dues to the federal government.

Harb: Parliament’s evening sessions need to pass a law
  
{Locality: Al-Furat News} A legal expert confirmed that holding Parliament sessions in the evening requires a law to be issued.

 

Tariq Harb said in a statement, the Euphrates News Agency received a copy of it, "After the parliamentary announcement that the parliament session today will be at four o'clock in the evening, and not as happened in the previous sessions held by the parliament at midnight, it achieved two effects. The first is the inability of many to follow news. "What happens in the midnight session of Parliament, while I can follow the evening sessions of Parliament." 

He added, "The other reason is that the administrative system of the state since the time of Minister of Finance (Sasson Hesqel). The official working hours have been set from eight in the morning until four in the evening, and the holding of sessions or official working hours outside these times requires a law to be based on during the working hours outside the official working hours, and no such has been issued. This law, unless that duty specifies the nature of administrative work outside working hours, for example the duties of the military and the police, who work during the hours of the night and day, so there is no need for a law. "

It is noteworthy that the House of Representatives witnessed, in the past weeks, holding sessions in the late hours of the night and continuing until dawn hours.

      Greetings,
      Here is some of the Best News I have read lately and just maybe we can still WIN this game in the last half of the seemingly last quarter!!!
      The Iraqi parliament has elected Kurdish politician Fouad Massoum [Fuad Massum] as president, succeeding Jalal Talabani.
      The 76-year-old is a founding member of Mr Talabani’s Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) party.
      Associated Press reports that Massoum is considered a soft-spoken moderate, known for keeping good relations with Sunni and Shiite politicians.
      According to BBC News, the presidency is the second major government post to be filled, after Salim al-Jabouri was elected as parliament speaker last week.
      The next step will be for Massoum to select a candidate for prime minister to try to form a new government.
