chattels: Reidar Visser @reidarvisser · 1h1 hour ago How is the reform project of #Iraq PM Abadi going? I was interviewed by @JoelWing2 on his indispensable Iraq blog musingsoniraq.blogspot.co...
chattels: PM Abadi began announcing a series of reforms in August 2015. Can you give a brief rundown of what he proposed and their status?
chattels: The most immediate measures were the downsizing of cabinet through abolishing some ministries and merging others, as well as sacking some key posts deemed unnecessary such as deputy PMs and deputy VPs. The degree of implementation varies. Ministers affected by the cabinet downsizing certainly no longer come to cabinet meetings, and the mergers of ministries are reportedly underway.
Conversely, there are competing claims about the VPs, with some sources saying they still receive their salaries, and they visibly continue to occupy their offices. This in itself needn't be an anomaly as long as a complaint about the constitutionality of their sacking is pending before the federal supreme court; however once a ruling has been published it will be a key test of the actual implementation of reforms.
chattels: We have stated in this forum on several occasions that we are awaiting a decision from the Iraqi judiciary.
chattels: One major criticism of Abadi’s changes was that he was acting unconstitutionally and usurping the powers of the parliament. What is the legal status of the premier’s program?
chattels: The discussion of the legality of the reforms comprises many misunderstandings especially regarding the role of the parliament. A key point here is that the Iraqi parliament on 11 August gave its approval to the entire reform programme of Abadi, including merging ministries and sacking VPs.
These were specific reforms specifically approved, rather than a carte blanche that was given and that can subsequently be withdrawn.
One of the few specific extension's of the PM's authority in the package actually came in the shape of a right to withdraw confidence from local governors. In other words, parliament has itself approved of many things it later regretted, and it is highly jejune of it to retroactively publish declarations of the kind it issued on 2 November to the effect that it "supports reform as long as they are inside the constitution".
Some reforms evidently weren't constitutional, but parliament was itself involved in overriding the constitution in this respect.
chattels: As for the substantial matters, it does seem clear that the sacking of the VPs, but not the deputy PMs and the merger of ministries, though all ministers should have been sacked individually was at variance with the constitution, which stipulates the existence of at least one such VP.
The attempt by cabinet to retroactively clean things up legally by swiftly introducing a law project to abrogate the existing law on the VPs really served as an admission of illegality rather than a step to establish legality. The new law has yet to make any progress in parliament.
chattels: On a more general note, there is also the problem of parliament trying to pass such massive measures in the shape of a single "decision" in parliament (qarar) in August without there being a complete legislative projects with the usual two readings before a vote. The legal status of such a decision is unclear, and it may for example potentially be reversed as easily with another "decision", whether on the cabinet's initiative or otherwise.
chattels: " The new law has yet to make any progress in parliament."
chattels: " ......... there is also the problem of parliament trying to pass such massive measures in the shape of a single "decision" in parliament (qarar) in August without there being a complete legislative projects with the usual two readings before a vote."
chattels: Any pundit who talks about a truncated legislative process, i.e., skipping the required two readings, is obviously not well informed.
chattels: An excellent interview. I wish that it had been longer and addressed other issues.
