The bloc Prime Hoshyar Abdullah in a statement received by all of Iraq [where] a copy of "Yesterday saw discuss a very important issue included on the agenda of the House of Representatives for a blog parliamentary behavior, was voted to the Code by the Board, but according to our opinion, was there are things that are very important we were hoping to be included in the blog post discussed extensively, and more than once asked the President of the Council giving us the opportunity to speak, but was unfortunately passed hastily unjustified, so I would like to pay tribute to some of the things that have been overlooked in the blog. "

"
He continued, "I believe that the House of Representatives is not a classroom where the House of Representatives is committed to silence, it is also the case in parliaments around the world a platform to exchange views and varied or quarreled Different among themselves, but provided that they are in favor of the cohesion of Iraqi society more and not vice versa, as must convey differences Iraqi street to parliament rather than our differences, that we export to the street. "

"
