It talks the parties of the National Alliance, to resolve points of contention in the law, but the Kurdish parties denies this, and reiterates its commitment to the adoption of "consensus" in the decisions of the Court and the convening of meetings.

And it justifies the Kurdish party that lack the number of crew representatives in court, allowing to pass laws deduced from the interest of the region.

The Cabinet sound, the end of last February, to forward the draft of the Federal Supreme Court Act to the House of Representatives, after reviewed and audited by the competent ministerial committee.

The President of the House of Representatives, Saleem al-Jubouri, the beginning of last May, about the readiness of the draft federal law on the Supreme Court vote, stressing that the president will choose the right time to do so.

Says a member of the legal committee of parliamentary, Ibtisam Hilali, in an interview to the newspaper (range), said that "resolving the issue of the Federal Court is long overdue, although it is important and constitutional laws," and adds that "the political blocs recently agreed, to determine the term of office of President of the Federal Court duration of 12 Year after was one of the points of contention, as has been the separation of Presidium of the Supreme Judicial Council for the court. "

Hilali predicted, that "blocs resume negotiations on the bill early next week," and shows that "the task of the Supreme Judicial Council is overseeing the administrative and other courts of the Federal Court, while the Federal Court shall resolve disputes between the authorities and important."

And attest to a member of the parliamentary legal committee, that "amendments, sent by the head of the Supreme Judicial Council, on the project, will contribute to the adoption of the law."

It says a member of the Kurdish blocs, Adel Nouri, said in an interview to the newspaper (range), "The draft of the Federal Court Act of the most important constitutional law, although it is controversial subjects," and suggests that "the political blocs are still negotiating on some contentious on the points project. "

It is noteworthy Nuri, that "the political blocs are close to agreement on points of contention facing the enactment of the law in the hope of inclusion of the vote in the coming sessions."

And on the Kurdish reservations on the proposed version of the law, a Kurdish lawmaker believes that "the Kurdistan Alliance observations and good for the existence of one region in Iraq, therefore, we have the fear and concerns of some of the decisions passed at the expense of the interests of Kurdistan."

He continues Nuri, that "the basis of the position of the Federal Court is to decide on disputes or differences that arise between the province and the center and thus become our apprehension and warned," and shows that "the Kurds will share three out of 13 members of the court."

He goes Kurdish lawmaker, that "the number of representatives of the Kurds in court a few and they can not pass any decision in favor of the territory on or off any decision against him," and asserts that "the insistence of the Kurdish forces that decisions be unanimous and that the hearings also unanimously."

And reveals Nuri, that "the refusal of the National Alliance for Kurdish demands led us to propose the composition of the Presidium manages the Federal Court consists of a president, the Shiite component, and two deputies of the components of the Kurdish and Sunni that the decision mechanism that is the consensus of the Presidency" and continues, "but the National Alliance refused to do so also in duration years. "

But Kurdish lawmaker, stresses that "the Kurdistan Alliance does not want to obstruct the enactment of this important law will be flexible with other political blocs to create an atmosphere of understanding."

Meanwhile, other member of the Legal Committee in Parliament, Hassan Turan says, in an interview to the newspaper (range), said that "the political blocs have not yet agreed on the draft of the Federal Court Act, despite the urgent need to reform the judicial system and the formation of a federal court in line with the Constitution," and adds that "Kurdistan Alliance bloc still insists on consensus in the adoption of decisions of the Court, as well as a consensus president and vice president to pass resolutions relating to the center and the region."

Explains Deputy Turkmen, that "the rest of the political blocs insist on not possible to achieve consensus within the Court otherwise there is no justification originally to its existence," and suggests that "the objecting blocks on the demands of the Kurdistan Alliance, sees the possibility of resorting to the application of the majority or an absolute majority as a substitute for unanimity in decisions of the Court." .

In contrast to the optimism of his colleague in the Legal Committee, denies Tauran, the existence of "serious talks to pass the Federal Court Act," It is expected that "if the Federal Court stays the way it is in the absence of a law regulating their work."

And confirms the MP from Kirkuk, that "the judicial system reform requires political blocs to expedite the enactment of the Federal Court Act as it is interpreted by the Constitution and laws challenging", and calls on the Presidency of the Parliament to "start negotiations between the political blocs on the Federal Court Act."
