Baghdad / Obelisk: The representative of Salah al-Din Mishaan al-Jubouri suggested, on Saturday, April 23, 2022, holding new elections if the blocs fail to overcome the political blockage.
Al-Jubouri said in a tweet on Twitter, which was followed by the obelisk: He does not wish to break the bone between the parties, indicating that he supports resolving differences between political forces.
He added that if the political blocs do not succeed in overcoming the political blockage, let us go to new elections, perhaps producing a two-thirds majority.
Three attempts to elect a president failed, six months after the early parliamentary elections.
And to go to new early elections, one-third of the parliament members need to present his dissolution before the House of Representatives, then the House itself votes by half plus one, and the parliament itself is dissolved.
Academic Muhammad Hashem believes that the best solution to the political impasse in Iraq is to dissolve parliament and call for early elections within sixty days.
And he added: In light of the current paragraphs of the constitution, it is impossible to achieve this because there are two-thirds or a majority, wondering about the authority that obliges everyone to do so.
A report by Al-Monitor newspaper talks about the most likely possibility, that the current government will continue indefinitely as a transitional government and hold other early elections in 2023, given the fact that the constitutional deadline for forming a government has passed.
And the Khaleej Times newspaper published leaks that forces from within the framework see that maintaining the government of Mustafa Al-Kazemi, with ministerial amendments to it, may be the most realistic and appropriate option in light of the current political impasse, especially with the Sadrist movement not showing any cooperation or response to the initiative that he put forward. The framework for the formation of the largest parliamentary bloc.
