The head of the National Reconciliation Commission and parliamentary accountability MP Qais Cdhir in a statement to «life» that block the «rule of law» submitted the proposed amendment in the «March last in the hope that the Committee will consider the proposal to be forwarded to the presidency of the parliament.

He pointed out that «studied proposed amendment took a long time has not ratified it yet, note that most of the parliamentary blocs have been supportive to tack amendments and is expected to be voted on soon.
And got the «life» of the Commission 'national reconciliation', a copy of the proposal and there is a tendency for approval within days.
The text includes amendments relating to the definition of the term 'agents of the regime', with the words «to prove that a judicial decision has gained become final.
The proposal included the amendment of article 6 on the actions taken against belonging to the Baath Party as follows: «terminate the services of all employees, those who were highly member branch and retirement under service law in force and to refer all employees who occupy a special grades (general manager or equivalent and above) who were highly member of the Division in the ranks of the Baath Party to retire A_i_ina of age requirement and service to the law of service and retirement force and end the services of security personnel who were convicted under judicial decisions gained become final in the suppression of the Iraqi people to retire under the law of service and retirement force ».

He was chairman of the «Accountability and Justice Falah Shanshal called in press statements covered by the law to provide treatment of pensions within 60 days, accusing the former members of the Commission not to carry out their duties, pointed out that« the current actual work began only three months ago.
The political differences took place on the procedures followed by the 'de-Baathification' past and led to the deportation of many politicians from participating in the political process, while the House of Representatives initiated law «Justice and Accountability in the previous session instead of 'de-Baathification'.
There is no doubt that the absence of the President "Jalal Talabani" from the political scene and Iraqi Kurdish in particular, will affect the political map and leaves a void difficult to Asdh one even for a period, which could push the politicians adults that re their arrangements of new, man personality charismatic strong and his field long contributed to identify the basic features of the new state, and has emerged as a key player in the Iraqi political arena,
• IMO, Talabani definitely UNDERSTOOD the principles of a Democracy better than anyone in any authority position currently. Anyone who has the finger on the pulse of Iraq news, KNOWS this is the most chaotic period in Iraq we have witnessed since our troops pulled out.
clutching strings game is that Irkhiha for a moment until he was darkest health conditions
• HISTORY LESSON:
and political did not allow anyone to whatever degree relative of him to undisputed or think just thinking that occupies his place, It the warrior stubborn first class, do not give up easily and not bend to one, fought leader Kurdish nation "Mustafa Barzani" and entered him in a bitter struggle for many years because he wanted to Iksqs Jnahath and limits the ambitions of leadership tyrant despite his respect has a large account like Supreme but not the kind that give up Atoto to one if the commander weight Barzani, was supposed entering with arch and the son of his rival, "Massoud Barzani,"
• Sounds like at one time, Talabani and Massoud Barzani's father were arch enemies.
after a grinding war between them in a strategic agreement in 2007 that things return to normal track and unite state institutions function, and unite two departments Almksmtan "city of Sulaimaniya administered Party Talabani, Erbil and Dohuk under the control of the party Barzani," but remained keeps troop Peshmerga own Bakbatha Green did not allow consolidation of the military establishment never, and also did not allow to merge the financial institution of the parties as complementary strengths of military force,
• Things were finally on good terms between Talabani and the current Barzani... However, it looks like Barzani was never willing to merge his troops with the central government nor the financial institutions of Kurdistan. Trust issues.. can't say I blame him.
and ظلتا two institutions Mtafrqtin reduce this moment, I stayed this trend when even a president of the Republic of Iraq, when presented to him opposed to the policy of the Iraqi prime minister, "al-Maliki" dictatorship request to bump up to the parliament to withdraw the confidence of it according to the constitution, refused to submit it to parliament because this would raise the star "Barzani" in sky Kurdish politics and makes him Kurdish leader only in the contemporary history of Iraq that toppled Prime Minister in Iraq while showing his image as a child of his outlet for his orders, and that is not acceptable,
• You may remember Talabani rejected the notion of sending anything to parliament against Maliki and kind of smoothed things over with the Kurds and the central government. However, PRIOR to Talabani's hospitalization, he had become FURIOUS WITH MALIKI.. and did talk about submitting the papers for a vote of no confidence to Parliament..
often conclude from the limited powers conferred on him by the Constitution and tried to get out of the narrow framework which put its by amending some provisions of the constitution in this area, but collided reject categorically by the National Alliance Party, was forced to activate its role in political scene last, and show his talents leadership inimitable bring together warring Iraqi politicians of all persuasions and attitudes contradictory around him, raising the banner of peace and love, was able to impose its presence in this field, so we find that the most senior politicians today hurts and regrets what the outcome of the health condition, some of them cut his official visit "speaker" and some of them rushed to the hospital to check on his health, "Prime Minister" ..
• The absence of Talabani is being felt big time now.. Now they realize just how well he kept the peace among the political blocs.
The absence of "Mam Jalal "The final in the Iraqi political scene rise to the possibility of sharp divisions and not" split one "in the structure of his party," Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, "which is made up of teams and wings of different political, like the Great Schism, which happened to him" in 2009 "by Nawshirwan Mustafa, a leader Wings Party adult and then machined to an independent movement "Movement for Change", and that this happened and this possibility is very likely, it will become the Kurdistan Democratic Party, headed "Msaudbarzana"(TRANSLATION error I do believe that should have said Massoud Barzani) is the beneficiary first and last of these defections and a dominant Kurdish political without a competitor, may lead absence " Talabani "to unite institutions Almenksmtin" financial and military ".. But his absence at the Iraqi level, the Iraqis will lose a wise voice had an effect in calming the situation explosive. Mamedoana
• Thank you for posting.. very hard to read and interpret.. but good history lesson between Talabani and Barzani.. RED

She Daini: that the last meeting of the House of Representatives was there agreement between the political blocs to amend the amnesty law, expected approval in the sessions of the House of Representatives next week.
BAGHDAD: For weeks, Iraqi MPs have been locked in a political crisis that has stalled progress on key decisions including one affecting their own offices in a future parliament complex.
Iraq launched an international competition in late 2011 to design a new parliament, replacing the current Saddam-era edifice, and last week, the Royal Institute of British Architects, which ran the contest to shield Baghdad from accusations of corruption, recommended a London-based group for the job.
But the chosen group Assemblage has not heard from parliament officials since being selected, and British architecture publications have said Baghdad is still in talks over a rival design by award-winning Iraqi-born architect Zaha Hadid.
"I think that they've got their hands full right now with trying to keep the parliament from being dissolved and the whole thing collapsing," Peter Besley, cofounder and director of Assemblage, told by telephone.
"I think the main concern is that there won't be a parliament to sit in this building if we build it," he added. "So we've got to give them some time. I think their in-boxes are a bit full right now."
Besley was referring to a series of interlocking political crises in Baghdad that have pitted Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki against his erstwhile government partners ahead of key provincial elections in April.
Various members of Maliki's national unity cabinet -- Sunnis, Kurds and members of his own Shiite community -- have accused him of authoritarianism and sectarianism, and he has faced weeks of protests that have hardened opposition against his rule.
The row has largely brought policy-making in Iraq to a standstill, with no landmark legislation passed since parliamentary elections in March 2010.
And now it appears the dispute has stalled decisions on plans to relocate parliament from its current location inside the capital's Green Zone to another central Baghdad location, but one outside the heavily fortified complex that is home to the cabinet as well as the American and British embassies.
Under the terms of the RIBA competition, Iraq's parliament is under no obligation to choose the project that emerged top in the contest, but with a week having passed since the winner was announced, officials in Baghdad have not even acknowledged receiving the RIBA recommendations.
Assemblage says it has received the $250,000 competition prize, and is keen to get on with more detailed designs and planning that could see construction on the new parliament begin as early as 2015.
