the deputy of the al-Hikma stream, Hassan al-Masoudi, confirmed on Thursday that the President of the Republic does not have the authority to dissolve the House of Representatives according to Article 64 of the Constitution, noting that the limits of his validity depend on agreeing to the request for a solution and sending it to the House of Representatives to vote on it.

Al-Masoudi said in a statement, “Where News” received a copy of it, that “there is no authority for the President of the Republic to dissolve Parliament in accordance with Article 64 of the Constitution,” noting that “the limits of his authority depend on agreeing to the request for dissolution and sending it to the House of Representatives to vote on it by a majority of the members of the House of Representatives ”

He added, “This is what the President of the Republic stated in his last speech by saying that he would agree to a request to dissolve Parliament if it was submitted by the Prime Minister and transmit approval to the House of Representatives to vote on it,” noting that “this is logical because there is the principle of separation of powers, so there is no It is permissible for the executive authority represented by the President of the Republic to dissolve the highest authority in the country, which is the legislative authority, and here the legislative authority will be subordinate to the executive, dissolving it whenever you want, and this leads to paralyzing the supervisory role of the legislature for fear of executive anger and going to a solution.
