Jabouri intentionally cripples parl't – MP

Iraqi parliament seats' numbers to be 360 for next electoral cycle

MP of the State of Law Coalition Nahla al-Hibabi asserted on Tuesday that the MP attending today's parliamentary session won't exceed 70 MPs.

Hibabi asserted that the Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri is intentionally crippling parliament's work and the issuance of any new laws and drafts.

She added that as the attendance will be so low, the required quorum will not be achieved and the session will be canceled.

Hibabi stressed that Jabouri's holding of any session is a media show and propaganda for his re-elections campaign.
