Harb, addressing politicians: You will not reach Parliament according to the new law

Policy

2019/12/24 12:29:33

Shafaq News / Legal expert Tariq Harb said today, Tuesday, that the current politicians will not reach the next parliament, according to the new election law.

“All of you will not reach parliament according to the new law,” Harb said in a Facebook post. “This is what can be said to you, because most of you or all of you will not win the elections because you are patriots geographically, not patriots of small areas.”

“Since the nomination of any one of you to the governorate as a constituency, you can win, but your nomination is over one hundred thousand, and it certainly will not win, because one of you is known in the governorate as a constituency, but it is not known in his constituency consisting of one hundred thousand people, and in this small constituency is based on knowledge This is the sheikh of a clan and this is the sheikh of the mosque and this is a face, and this pushed us and these gangs want it, and so on. ”

He added, “We will note that the Bloc (S) that won 54 deputies in the 2018 elections will obtain more than one hundred parliamentary seats, and if we were previously cursing the deputies of Basra who are calling for Basra without Iraq, then according to this law we will find deputies demanding a section of Sadr City and not a city Al-Sadr or Baghdad, and thus the division of Iraq.

And he added, “Every deputy demands his constituency of one hundred thousand people only. You can imagine the 69 deputies of Baghdad, each calling and demanding for his region of one hundred thousand. Thus, Iraq gets lost, Baghdad is lost, and Sadr City is lost to the demands of the deputies of each of them demanding the affairs of its constituent one hundred thousand.” Nesma, forgetting the judiciary, the governorate, and Iraq.
