Iraqi Federal Court once again postpones session to discuss parliament dissolution

File – The building of Iraqi Federal Supreme Court

SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Iraqi Federal Supreme court on Wednesday postponed a session to discuss a lawsuit filed by the Sadrist movement demanding the dissolution of parliament.

Iraq’s Federal Supreme Court delayed a session scheduled to discuss the case for dismantling the Iraqi parliament, the postponement was followed by the same on Tuesday amid political unrest in the country.

The Judicial Council earlier said that it does not have the authority to dissolve the parliament after powerful Iraqi Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr urged the council to intervene and call for a snap election.

Iraq held early elections in October 2021 following massive protests two years prior by a pro-reformist anti-corruption group, and later forced former Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi to resign. However, the Intra-Shia power struggle has prevented the formation of a new government in Iraq since the election.
