A legal expert reveals exciting details about Allawi’s resignation: The government has resigned in its entirety

16th August, 2022

The legal expert, Muhammad al-Samarrai, confirmed on Tuesday that the current government is dealing with daily matters following the dissolution of the House of Representatives to itself and in accordance with the second paragraph of Article 64 of the Constitution, which states (The Council of Ministers is considered resigned and turns into a management of matters).

Al-Samarrai said in a Facebook post, which was followed by Mawazine News, that “the submission of the resignation request submitted by the Minister of Finance and approved by the Prime Minister is not governed by a legal text, and it is not considered a resignation in the legal and constitutional sense. It is a political position before it is an executive government.

This behavior can fall under the concept of leaving the position or requesting Exemption from performing constitutional duties at a critical stage in the country, or under any other name except resignation.

Al-Samarrai continued, “There are constitutional obligations and norms that must be adhered to. This resigned government or the caretaker government is charged with a very dangerous mission related to a temporary and transitional phase separating two governments with full powers, and there must be a role of receiving and handing over, especially since there are very serious files that have been dealt with in the current government and must be taken into account.” in the next government or highlight it.

Al-Kazemi: Tomorrow I will call for an Iraqi national dialogue for all the country’s leaders

08/16/2022 16:48:08

Highlights of the speech of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi during the regular session of the Council of Ministers today, Tuesday:

Unfortunately, we are still experiencing political challenges and political blockages and their repercussions on the government’s performance. The government is not a party to the political conflict, but there are those who are trying to hold it responsible for this crisis and run away from the problem, and turn all problems towards the government.

🔵 Our crisis is not the only one in this world, there are many experiences that have passed close to our experience, and they may be more complex, but by using wisdom and wise leaders they succeeded in crossing that stage, and some of these countries turned into successful experiences.

🔵 Singapore, for example, was a model of a failed state, and we see it today turning into one of the most important countries in the world. In Rwanda in Africa, there was a civil war and massacres, but today it has turned into an important country in Africa. It is unreasonable in Iraq, the founding country of human civilization with an age of nearly 6 thousand years, and we are still dealing with problems in a way of breaking wills.

🔵 Wisdom and loyalty are required for this country, for it has given us a lot, history has given us and a lot of which we are proud and proud, and we must return part of this favor to our country, our homeland and our people. This poor people have long been subjected to mismanagement, destitution, and destructive wars.

🔵 Our decision in this government was not to get involved in Iraqi blood, neither today nor tomorrow. Iraqi blood is precious, and problems must be solved through dialogue and then dialogue. That is why tomorrow I will call for an Iraqi national dialogue for all the leaders of the country; In order to contribute to finding a solution, think about solving the issue.

🔵 My message to my brothers, the leaders of the country: Everything is fleeting and history is the judge. We must rise to the challenge. Sacrifice for the sake of Iraq is not an element of weakness, but rather an element of strength, and some do not imagine when he makes a concession to his brother as if he is in a position of weakness. This is a mistake; Compromise is a real strength.

🔵 I wish everyone to be patient and courageous; Until we cross this stage and be able to build our country, despite the absence of a budget for two years, things are going right.

🔵 A government cannot live without a budget, two years have passed without a budget, but we have run the country. The chance of success is possible if we join hands and deal with the spirit of one teamwork and the spirit of belonging to Iraq.

🔵 This government came in exceptional circumstances and succeeded in overcoming all challenges, but it is unfortunate that the government is close to 28 months old, and until this moment the budget has only been available for six months.

🔵 People ask and ask for everything, which is their right. People have the right to ask for paved streets, water, schools and health care, but all of this must be balanced; For the government to do its part.

🔵 The political blockage was reflected in the formation of the government and the absence of a budget, and we accepted all the challenges and tried to overcome them, and we always faced accusations, slander and injustice with silence for the sake of Iraq, and for the sake of our people who deserve a better life than what they are currently living.
