Don961: Iraqi parliament to convene for first time in three months
By Rudaw 49 minutes ago
BAGHDAD, Iraq— After three months of virtual shutdown, the Iraqi parliament in Baghdad has summoned members for a general session on Tuesday for the first time amid lingering divisions over Prime Minister Haidar Abadi’s proposed cabinet.
Lawmaker Musanna Amin told Rudaw his fellow Kurdish MPs will also be present at the general assembly after they left the Iraqi parliament in late April following a sit-in that turned violent.
Several Kurdish MPs were attacked by crowds of rioters who were believed to be Shiite cleric Muqtda al-Sadrs supporters accusing the parliament and the government of corruption.
The parliament is due to discuss Abadi’s cabinet members who still hope for an endorsement from an unreceptive parliament with both Kurdish and Sunni groups rejecting the reshuffling of their cabinet ministers.
Prime Minister Abadi’s efforts to reshuffle most of his cabinet minsters collapsed as both Kurdish and Sunni factions announced they would not take part in his so called technocratic government.
It is unclear how the prime minister will have his government endorsed while both Kurds and Sunnis have declared they will vote against the reshuffling in the parliament.
On April 12, an inconclusive majority in the Iraqi parliament voted for the removal of Saleem Jabbori who came to office in July 2014 following a broad agreement among Iraqi factions.
Iraq’s federal court ruled last month against the decision to replace the speaker.

BREXIT BACKLASH: HUNGARY SETS DATE FOR EU REFERENDUM
In the wake of the UK’s Brexit vote and the decision to leave the European Union (EU), the Hungarian President, Janos Ader, has ordered a nationwide referendum on October 2.
n the wake of the UK's Brexit vote and the decision to leave the European Union (EU), the Hungarian President, Janos Ader, has ordered a nationwide referendum on October 2.
The Hungarian people will be asked whether they want to accept any future European Union quota system for resettling migrants.
The question will be: "Do you want the European Union to be entitled to prescribe the mandatory settlement of non-Hungarian citizens in Hungary without the consent of parliament?"
The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has fiercely opposed the EU's plans to relocate 160,000 migrants around the bloc by using mandatory quotas, but the scheme was approved by a majority of members.
Mr Orban has said that the vote will give people a chance to stand up for Hungary's sovereignty.
The Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Peter Sziijarto, said in a radio interview yesterday that Brussels must be stopped.
He said: "Brussels must be stopped, we must put an end to the violent immigration policy that is contrary to the will of the European people.
