Session of Parliament on 02.08.2016 and private discussion of some of the provisions of the ban on Baath Party Law and what happened in this meeting, we had to remind that it is necessary to nourish and support the invitation of the President of Parliament, which calls for the legislation of a new law to ban the Baath Party and the enactment of the law modifying the accountability and justice and traffic law in the two laws together legislation and why it is the relationship close between the provisions and rules of the Baath ban contained in the new legislation and the provisions and rules of law amending the law of accountability and justice and so-called de-Baathification law as that for each of these two laws, one theme and constitutional basis of constitutional premise of the law of the Baath ban issued in the provisions of Article VII of the Constitution, which banned banned each entity or program that adopts racism, terrorism or atonement, or ethnic cleansing or incites, facilitates, glorifies, promotes, or justify it, especially the Baath Party of Saddam and its symbols under any name whatsoever shall not be political pluralism in Iraq has necessitated Article VII of the Constitution mentioned earlier the need to regulate by law to parliament Sir took action in the enactment of this law, and it was covered in the delay because of the position of the political blocs in parliament, although the government had deposited this law years ago to parliament.
Also, the parliament of another face must take the necessary to amend the law of accountability and justice around includes easing measures and minimize the categories covered by this law, especially for those who showed a national stance in fighting terrorism and Daash though that person is covered by the law of accountability and justice as the basis Article 135 of the Constitution promised accountability and justice Commission of the interim bodies and are not permanent bodies therefore, the above-mentioned article parliament granted the authority to dissolve this Commission by a simple majority, which means that the AJC temporary work constitutionally and not a permanent body confirms also that paragraph VI of the article ( 135) of the Constitution gave parliament power to monitor and review the executive procedures of the body to ensure fairness, objectivity and transparency in its operations and procedures and was on parliament initiative to speed laws legislation and not to delay it or make this a constitutional topic subject of rare, which sometimes amounts to a mockery, which is said in the parliament sessions before the House of Representatives.
