Baghdad / Obelisk: Difficult choices loom on the horizon after the Federal Supreme Court in Iraq announced the rejection of the case for dissolving Parliament, stressing that it does not have the constitutional authority to dissolve Parliament.
And the court’s decision means throwing the ball into the court of the deputies who must dissolve parliament, according to interpretations of the repercussions of the court’s decision, but the coordination framework rejects this and believes that parliament sessions should be held in order to form a government.
The dissolution of Parliament is a basic demand of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, who has threatened more escalatory steps, but his opponents in the coordination framework see priority in forming a government.
The Iraqi constitution clarifies the mechanism for dissolving parliament: that the parliament is dissolved by an absolute majority of its members with two options; The first is at the request of one third of its members, and the other is at the request of the Prime Minister and with the approval of the President of the Republic.
The economic and political researcher Daoud Hashem explains that what is happening is the same scenario of the year 2010 where there is a political class that tolerated itself in violating the constitution, its texts and its terms, and it was permitted to be higher than the law as long as it agreed on the feast, and when the feast became fat and stained with an external taste, it returned again and differed Once again on the constitution that you violated yesterday.
In a tweet to the Minister of Al-Sadr, on Thursday, he said that the return of the deputies of the Sadrist bloc is prohibited, calling on the major Sunni, Kurdish and some Shiite blocs to work to dissolve parliament and hold early elections.
The academic and political researcher, Dr. Muammar Al-Kubaisi, believes that Al-Sadr retracted his retirement with a tweet in favor of Al-Iraqi, where he spoke (about him) with a roadmap that would keep Barham and Al-Kazemi with the dissolution of Parliament itself and the call for early elections and the termination of the lawsuit to invalidate the resignations, but the framework responded by refusal.
The crisis began when al-Sadr wanted to form a political majority government with the participation of the Sovereignty Alliance led by al-Halbousi, and the Kurdistan Democratic Party, headed by Massoud Barzani, but the Iranian-backed coordinating framework rejected that.
After al-Sadr was unable to form that government, he announced the resignation of his deputies from Parliament and demanded the formation of a non-consensual government that would be acceptable.
The sit-ins in front of Parliament developed, leading to the outbreak of armed clashes between Al-Sadr’s Peace Brigades and the Popular Mobilization, which constituted a milestone in the political crisis.
