Shafaq News / The Iraqi Council of Representatives (Parliament) failed, on Tuesday, to pass a draft Federal Court bill due to the ongoing disputes over three articles.

A representative source told Shafaq News, “The meeting of the parliament presidency with heads of political blocs failed to reach an agreement on resolving the disputed articles in the Federal Court law.”

He pointed out that “the Presidency of Parliament agreed with the political forces to postpone the vote on the Federal Supreme Court Law until Thursday to give an opportunity to reach a final agreement on passing the law and resolving disputes over its paragraphs.”

He added that “the session witnessed a boycott by MPs from different political blocs and parliamentary blocs.”

During the last period, Parliament voted to pass 21 articles of the Federal Court bill, and disputes revolve around three pending articles.

The differences focus on granting seats to Islamic law scholars of the Shiite and Sunni sects, seats in the Federal Court, and giving them the power to vote on decisions.

Disputes also revolve around the voting mechanism in the Federal Court as to whether unanimity is required to pass decisions or a simple majority.

SULAIMANI — British Consul-General in Erbil James Thornton said on Tuesday (March 16) that the UK and other foreign governments hope that Erbil and Baghdad are able to resolve their disagreements, including over the budget, oil, and payments to public sector workers.

 During a visit to Halabja to participate in the 33rd annual commemoration of the chemical attack on the city, Thornton told reporters that the consulate has always stressed the importance of resolving issues between the two governments.

The KRG and the federal government have been involved in tense negotiations over the budget for nearly a year, several times announcing the outlines of an agreement only to have politicians pull back from actually moving forward with implementation.

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Spokesperson Jotiar Adil said that a KRG delegation will visit Baghdad on Tuesday for talks on the budget.
