The Federal Court postpones the hearing of the request to dissolve the Iraqi parliament until further noticeShafaq News/ The Federal Supreme Court (the highest judicial authority in Iraq) decided on Tuesday to postpone the session scheduled to consider the lawsuit to dissolve the House of Representatives until further notice.

A judicial source told Shafaq News Agency, “The Federal Court did not hold a session to consider the claim of dissolving the House of Representatives due to the holiday and security developments near the Green Zone.”

He added that “the session will be held when things return to normal in terms of security.”

The Federal Court had set the 30th of August as the date to consider the Sadrist movement’s claims to dissolve Parliament.

Nassar al-Rubaie, Secretary-General of the Sadrist bloc, had filed a lawsuit against the President of the Republic, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, to rule to dissolve the House of Representatives for its fifth session, and to oblige the President of the Republic to set a date for holding legislative elections in accordance with the provisions of Article 64/second of the Constitution.

The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, had called on the Supreme Judicial Council to dissolve parliament within a period not exceeding the twentieth of this month, and assigning the President of the Republic to set a date for early elections, but the Council responded to al-Sadr’s request to dissolve parliament, saying: “He does not have this authority.” .

The content of the lawsuit deals with accusations of failing to elect a President of the Republic and violating the constitutional deadlines for forming the new government.
