Did the Federal Court modify the local governments?
Baghdad: A few days ago received a new local governments in eight Iraqi provinces a decision issued by the Federal Court requesting the replacement of 24 members, the other members, and the court justified its decision that the quota of women did not materialize in the said councils.
The Federal Court is the highest judicial authority in Iraq, tasks, according to Article 93 of the Constitution centered around control of the constitutionality of laws and adjudicate disputes that arise between the federal government and the governments of the regions and governorates.
The Article 94 of the Constitution, contends that "the Federal Supreme Court decisions are final and binding for all authorities."
Court decision on the provincial councils stand by supporting women in the provincial councils and restores women's constitutional right boards, but it was late and confused work of these councils which commenced its members in their as Bedtlk prepare councils to appeal again to the same court.
The decision came after it completed the formation of local governments, which have suffered from the throes of Asir and weeks of debates between the winning blocs, may threaten the new formations and calls for the restructuring of the provincial governments covered by a decision of Babylon, Salahuddin and Nineveh, Baghdad, Diyala, Anbar and Muthanna, Wasit.
Mekdad Sharifi board member of the Electoral Commission said the "debate" that "the Federal Court decision boils down to the need to achieve the proportion of women constitutionally allocated in the provincial councils and specified that a quarter of the members are women."
Sharifi added that "Saint Lego system that has been applied in the distribution of seats in the elections led to the failure to achieve a quota or some blocks did not contribute to achieving the quota and provided only men candidates, and the court's decision came here to get things back to normal."
According to the interpretation of the Commission that won blocs, for example, in the four seats do not have a problem because they provided three candidates men and one woman, and the same thing applies to the blocks, which won eight seats as six candidates submitted men and two women.
But the problem that has emerged is that the results produced blocks winning three seats and less can not provide candidates according to the percentage mentioned, فالكتل which won three seats provided all the candidates of the men and blocs that won seats two candidates presented men.
Court demanded the replacement of male candidates with other women candidates as demanded by some provinces that provided the winning blocs where more women candidates from the quota share allocated according to replace men.
Most of the blocks that Sttalha replacement process won the ballot with three seats only or two seats and will have to replace one of its members of the men in one of the women, even if the number of votes obtained by the candidate's men more than women's share of that be replaced as well as the case for women winners who Sistbdln men losers .
But the Federal Court's decision was not welcome by some provincial governments covered by resolution where it considered exciting for being a mess reshape their governments and its functions after it began operations weeks ago.
Wasit province, which will have to replace four of its members women and one of the provinces objecting to the decision and said a member of the Council of maintaining Mahdi Eyal's "talk" I "We were surprised by this decision which will affect our plans in the provision of services."
He added that "the application of the Federal Court decision will lead to the cancellation of some previous resolutions of the Council Resolution issued late after occupancy officio members and assuming their duties."
In addition to administrative problems caused by the decision, the problems of legal and political face of provincial councils is that the members who have canceled their membership voted originally for the benefit of choosing the Governor and Chairman of the Board and the rest of the positions, and the new members who will take their place did not vote on these positions and this represents a violation of the mechanism for the election of local governments.
Despite the fact that the Federal Court did not give details on the decision, and does require a re-vote on the formation of the provincial council, the high-level judicial sources confirmed for "discussion" that "members of the Federal Court are studying the issue and may issue them an explanation within a few days.
But legal experts and observers stress the need to re-vote on the formation of the seven local governments, and will highlight the political problem here. Because as is well known, some provincial councils covered by resolution formed after lengthy negotiations that lasted weeks, paid some of the blocks to the province so narrowly succeeded in achieving a quorum for the formation of the local government, this scenario gallery to repeat again.
What reinforces this scenario, a member of the Wasit Provincial Council on the mass of the "state of law" Ghalib Kazem which showed mass discontent of the way of forming the provincial council, dominated by each of the blocs of the "citizen" and "Liberal", announced the intention of its mass appeal legitimacy of the session to elect a governor and head of Board and their deputies.
Kazim said the "debate" that "there is a possibility of a change in local government after was fully تهميشنا in the process of forming the provincial council." In return, the masses "Liberal" and "citizen" in Babil province, preparing to file an appeal calling for the restructuring of the local government, which was dominated by the "rule of law" and did not invite the two blocs to participate with him in important positions in the province.
Member of the Council of the province of Babylon on the mass of "citizen" Hassan's Support for the said "Talk" The mass and its ally, that "free" will appeal to the judiciary re-formation of the government session after the Federal Court's decision to replace two others winners of two women. "
The Federal Court has already issued a decision more than two weeks ago provoked the resentment of the majority of the political blocs except block "state of law", led by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki when he refused to determine the law and the heads of state of the Republic and the government, parliament بولايتين and approved by the parliament majority.
