In an official statement issued by him, the Deputy Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Dr. Bashir Khalil Al-Haddad, expressed his regret at the recent tensions and escalation between some of the deputies in the session on 10/14 on an issue that can be resolved with calm and fraternal understanding, While we were waiting for the discussions and interventions of the representatives to be concluded and the parliamentary blocs’ proposals presented on the issue of electoral districts in the next Iraqi parliament election law, But what happened prevented the continuation of the discussions and the completion of the session.
Al-Haddad stated, “In this difficult phase we need to strengthen national cohesion and direct efforts to calm the situation, and the media escalation will not serve the political process,”We call on everyone, whether inside or outside the dome of the parliament, to stay away from statements, statements and interventions that divide, do not collect, disperse and not unite. And we must not forget that we are partners in this country, and the Iraqi forces from the army, the police, the Popular Mobilization Forces and the Peshmerga have mixed their blood in the trench of defense of the land and sanctities, And that the liberation battles witnessed the strength and courage of all components of our people. ”
