Baghdad – news

Today, Friday, political analyst Mohammed Al-Tamimi considered that the stalled parliament session resulted from the prime minister’s attempt to break the stereotype that various governments followed after 2003.

Al-Tamimi told Al-Akhbaria that Allawi’s leaked government is not youthful and includes only one woman. Therefore, he cannot obtain the confidence of Parliament, except after his agreement with the political forces.

He emphasized: “Saturday’s session, if it is held, will be different from yesterday’s session. The next session will not witness Allawi’s attendance, and his attendance will be conditional upon a quorum for the session, since the appointed president has been waiting for several hours in a room in the parliament building hoping to hold the session and summon him, but That is not done.

And Tamimi analyst expected, “Allawi’s government will not gain the confidence of Parliament, even at tomorrow’s session, especially since the political corridors are witnessing dialogues to choose a replacement for it as soon as possible.”

Parliament failed, yesterday, Thursday, to hold a session of granting confidence to the government of designate Muhammad Allawi, due to severe political differences over it, prompting the Presidency of Parliament to postpone the session until further notice.

The Presidency of the Parliament postponed the session for half an hour for two consecutive times, after the session rang, and only a few representatives attended.

BAGHDAD – Mawazine News

The legal expert, Tariq Harb, resolved Friday, the controversy over the possibility of not giving confidence to the government of the Prime Minister-designate, Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi, while the constitution affirmed that the President of the Republic granted the right to assign another candidate according to his opinion and to choose him without referring to the more bloc if Parliament did not give confidence To the government in charge of.

Harb said, in a statement received by / Mawazine News / a copy of it: “Constitutionally, the President of the Republic assigns another candidate to form the ministry in the event that Allawi’s ministers fail to gain confidence in Saturday’s session according to the fifth paragraph of Article 76 of the constitution, and this is most likely after having agreed Most of the Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish blocs refrain from voting and give Prime Minister-designate Allawi confidence as long as these parliamentary blocs do not take their share of the ministries. ”

He added: “Although, although the candidates for the ministries represent all components, these blocs require the ministers to be the ones that nominate them, and each block has its share of ministers, that is, party partisanship, not sectarian quotas that the prime minister took into consideration. Rather, the blocs demand that the ministers be subordinate to them. They nominated them, not the prime minister, and so the parliamentary quotas were behind the removal of Allawi and his project to establish a government that is far from quotas, while respecting the components by representing them in the ministry he prepared. ”

He continued: “Knowing that not granting him confidence after the vote would constitutionally assume the president of the republic to appoint another candidate and note that in this case there is not the largest number of parliamentary blocs, but rather the absolute authority of the President of the Republic is absolute authority in the nomination for the personal prime minister that he deems unrelated to the largest number or The group with the smallest number is an issue that is subject to the President’s discretion only without restriction or condition in assigning anyone to exclude Allawi because the constitution decides another candidate and the other is not the former Allawi and this constitutes his government and presents it to Parliament to request that he be given confidence. ”End 6/6
