Federal Court has no right to interpret Iraqi Constitution, says MP
Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) MP Muhsen al-Sadoun of the Kurdistani Democratic Alliance stressed that the Federal Court has no right to interpret the Constitution’s terms.
Sadoun, member of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, added in a statement to IraqiNews.com that “The federal court is not specialized in interpreting the Constitution’s provisions because the court was established according to the law No. 30 for 2005 i.e. it was formed before the polling on the Constitution, therefore the court was set up under the state administration, hence it has nothing to do with the interpretations of the constitution.”
“The Constitution gave the right for ten MPs or any parliamentary committee to present proposals for laws,” he added.
Sadoun continued saying “As for the legal challenge of the Iraqi judiciary as a whole, it is illegal where each investigative issue has more than one judge so we stress that the judiciary is independent.”
