Al-Bayati - We are proceeding with a complete change of the electoral law and a return to the one-district system for each governorateInformation / Baghdad…
Former MP Jassim Al-Bayati confirmed the coordination framework and the government, headed by Al-Sudani, is proceeding to completely change the election law without making partial amendments to the law, pointing out that the trend will be towards returning to the single-circuit system for each governorate instead of the multiple constituencies.
Al-Bayati told Al-Maalouma, “The coordination framework has set among its priorities and government a complete change of the election law, not a partial change, as the issue of manual counting and sorting raised by the Federal Court is only a small part of the major trends to change this law.”
He added, “The division of Iraq into a quota for women has missed the opportunity for influential personalities and leaders to reach the legislative authority, and therefore what happened will not be repeated, and the law will change dramatically in the coming period.”
And he indicated that “what is proposed at the present time is to return to the St. Lego system in all votes, their distribution and organization, so that each governorate is a single constituency instead of working with the multiple constituency system.”
