Parties accuse the President of the Republic of “treason” and thousands of demonstrators call for the displacement of Barham and Halbousi: “Halbousi Barham, I will meet you the secret”

Baghdad / Obelisk: Mass demonstrations started in Tahrir Square, on Friday, calling for the presidents and the parliament to step down.

The demonstrators raised slogans against Barham Salih and Muhammad Al-Halbousi, while the obelisk monitored the slogans saying: #Halbousi_Barham_Ajjak_Al-Surra ..

To coincide with this, 150 deputies in the Iraqi Council of Representatives demanded from the Supreme Federal Court to dismiss and dismiss the President of the Republic, Barham Saleh, from his position as President of the Republic on charges of violating the constitution and not assigning the largest number of parliamentary bloc candidates during the period of (15) days.

The deputies directed the (150) official letters to the President of the Federal Court, in which they demanded “to file a lawsuit against the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, for violating the constitution in Article (67)”.

The deputies added that “Saleh violated the constitution because he did not commit to assigning the candidate of the most numerous bloc within a period that does not exceed (15) days, and his creation of the idea of excluding holidays from the constitutional period,” stressing the need to “remove him and relieve him of his position as President of the Republic”, hoping for “the Federal Court Complete the legal procedures to convict Saleh, and allow the parliament to complete the rest of the procedures. ”

In agreement with the political blocs, the President postponed the nomination of the Prime Minister to next Sunday, after it was supposed to name a candidate to head the government last Thursday.

To that, bloggers in the instant messaging criticized Barham Saleh’s meeting with American officials, considering that he had received dictates from Washington to pass the candidate that the American administration wanted.

On Friday, December 20, 2019, the deputy of the Sadqoun Parliamentary Bloc, Uday Awad, revealed that he had collected signatures to remove President Barham Saleh from his post, on charges of treason, perjury and violating the constitution.

Awad said in a press statement, read by the “obelisk”, that “the president of the republic has perjured the oath and did not respect constitutional times,” noting that “the president’s primary duty is to protect the constitution and its prestige.”

The President of the Republic is accused of defrauding constitutional timing, and he has not named a prime minister despite the end of the constitutional deadline.

President Saleh extended the constitutional deadline for two days, claiming that it is counted from the date of the letter of assignment reaching him, not from the date of its issuance by Parliament, and it was agreed between him and the political forces that the constitutional deadline relates to official working days only, and does not count with the weekend (Friday And Saturday), and as a result, determine the end of the period next Sunday.

Baghdad: «Middle East
While the supreme Shiite authority in Iraq called Ayatollah Ali Al-Sistani to hold early elections in Iraq and warned against going into the unknown, Iraqi President Barham Saleh threw the ball of the “largest bloc” in the court of the Federal Court after the constitutional deadline for the nomination of a new prime minister to succeed Adel Abdul Mahdi Thursday Before it expands to tomorrow.
The representative of the supreme religious authority, Sheikh Abd al-Mahdi al-Karbalai, said yesterday during his Friday sermon in Karbala that “the people are the source of authority and from it derive their legitimacy, as stipulated in the constitution.” He added, “On that, the nearest and safest way to get out of the current crisis and avoid going to the unknown, chaos, or internal fighting, God forbid, is to refer to the people by holding early elections, after legislating a fair law for them, forming an independent commission to conduct them, and setting up an effective monitoring mechanism On all stages of its work it allows to restore confidence in the electoral process. Al-Karbalai said: “However, the observer obstructed the approval of the electoral law to this day and aggravated the dispute over some of its main articles. Here we stress once again the need to expedite its approval and to be in harmony with the aspirations of the voters, bring them closer to their representatives, and nurture the inviolability of their votes and does not allow circumvention.” And he warned that passing a law that is not in this capacity will not help overcome the current crisis. Al-Karbalai pointed out that, “If the election law is passed in an acceptable manner, the role of intellectual elites and national competencies wishing to political work to organize their ranks and preparing their programs for the advancement of the country and solving its worsening problems within the framework of studied practical plans comes in order to be ready to present it to the voters in the election time, and the Educating to compete in them not on the basis of regional, tribal, or sectarian affiliations of the candidates, but in view of their qualifications and qualifications and what programs they have applicable to cross the country into a better future, in the hope that the next parliament and the government Confident of it required the role of them in making the necessary reforms to get rid of the consequences of corruption and quotas and the absence of social justice in the previous period ».
In this context, former Iraqi Member of Parliament Haider Al-Mulla said in a statement to Al-Sharq Al-Awsat that “until last Wednesday, there was insistence from the Iranian line to pressure the President of the Republic, Barham Saleh, to pass Qusay al-Suhail, especially after they received the consent of Iyad Allawi and the leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada al-Sadr, however, a message arrived from Najaf that the reference is not with this option, which made them retract. ”, Indicating that“ with the end of the constitutional deadline on Thursday, it appears that they have made a decision to proceed with nominating Al-Suhail regardless of the position of the authority of Najaf in addition to ending the popular movement. ”He explained that «what the reference expressed during Friday’s sermon (yesterday) seems to confuse everyone, especially the line that fully supports the imposition of Al-Suhail as the sole candidate for prime minister, as the sermon emphasized two elements, the first is that the people are the source of powers and the second is the formation of a non-controversial government which means not passing the personality that They want to pass it (Qusay Al-Suhail), which came in support of the positions of the blocs rejecting it, the illusion of wisdom and victory, just as it strengthened the power of the popular movement.
This coincided with news of direct threats to the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, and the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, from the commander of the Iranian Quds Force, General Qassem Soleimani. However, none of the offices of Saleh and Sadr did not comment on such news at a time when numbers of demonstrators from Tahrir Square in Baghdad launched the evening of yesterday’s slogans against the Presidents and Parliament Muhammad Al-Halbousi.
For his part, Furat Al-Tamimi, a member of the Iraqi parliament, confirmed, in a statement to Asharq Al-Awsat, that “the religious authority has drawn the features of the coming period to get out of the crisis through early elections by returning to the people who are the source of powers according to a fair electoral law that brings the people closer to their representatives.” He added that «the most important from the point of view of the reference is the holding of elections in conditions far from the influence of arms, money and external influence in addition to forming a non-controversial government, which means obtaining political and popular consensus and achieving what it has to do, including regular attendance and the restoration of state prestige.
For his part, President Saleh referred the definition of the concept of the largest bloc to the Federal Court. Saleh asked, according to a source in the Presidency of the Republic, to clarify the powers of the President of the Republic by rejecting or accepting the candidates of the blocs at this stage.
