Described as a time bomb - Warns against passing the electoral law prepared in the presidencyBaghdad / Sky Press

An Arab media has revealed that the legal advisor to the President of the Republic, Amir al-Kenani, wrote a draft electoral law, whereby the commission will be reconstituted by the judiciary and independent experts, but the application of this article violates the constitution, which recognizes the principle of separation of powers and learned the news. According to sources in the presidency, Saleh’s draft adopted the system of electoral districts at the judicial level, and this will create a technical problem in its application because it needs a census, as more than 100 districts in Iraq does not reach a population of 100,000 people. The law also includes reducing the number of the House of Representatives by 30%, so that each deputy represents 200 thousand voters, reducing the total number of 329 deputies to 222 deputies with minorities and quota of women. This paragraph is inconsistent with the articles of the Iraqi Constitution, which makes the application or adoption of this law in parliament almost impossible unless the Constitution is amended. Article 49 of the Iraqi Constitution provides as follows: The House of Representatives consists of a number of members by one seat per 100 thousand people are elected by direct universal secret ballot, and take into account the representation of other components of the people.

Politically warns parliamentary parties against passing the electoral law prepared in the presidency, describing it as a time bomb, because the system of electoral districts at the judicial level gives full Kurdish control over the disputed territories between Baghdad and Erbil, in addition to the hegemony of the Sadrists because the articles of the law is working to break up the lists And large blocks. In summary, according to media, “the law is a mixture of Kurdish Sadr aimed at sharing street votes in the elections of the fifth parliament.”

As the political blocs continue to prepare proposals for elections, several parties submitted a request to the President of the House of Representatives, Mohammed Halbousi, appended to 70 signatures, to reduce the number of the House of Representatives, which requires a constitutional amendment.

According to a parliamentary source authorized to one of the Arab sites, the proposal stipulates that every 200-250 thousand voters represent one deputy, which is still under discussion, but some political blocs may use the right of veto to reject that proposal.

Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi said on November 5 that the government had introduced an election law that would end the monopoly of the ballot results by large blocs and give more chance to independent candidates, but was rejected by parliament.
