Kurdish lawmaker lambasts hearing mechanisms in Iraqi parliament

Kurdish lawmaker
The Kurdistan Democratic Party lawmaker Shakhwan Abdullah has criticized the mechanism through which hearings are conducted in the parliament.

He added that politically-motivated bias is governing its work rather than professionalism.

There is a clear bias when it comes to conducting hearings under the dome, the lawmaker stated, referring that the process is carried out on unprofessional criteria.

The hearings are used to settle scores against foes, the lawmaker indicated.

If the hearing is conducted by lawmakers affiliated with Al-Ahrar Bloc or the Kurdish Democratic Party against officials appointed by State of Law coalition or the Islamic Party, the hearing will fail, he argued.
