Se­ri­ous amend­ments to be made in Par­lia­ment in­ter­nal sys­tem

The Kurdish Globe - - NATIONAL -

Ac­cord­ing to the new in­ter­nal sys­tem of Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment, the speaker of the par­lia­ment and the deputies are not nec­es­sar­ily se­lected from the ma­jor­ity bloc and a deputy speaker will be given to the op­po­si­tion. A mem­ber of le­gal com­mit­tee and in­ter­nal sys­tem prepa­ra­tion com­mit­tee re­vealed in an in­ter­view with 'Hewler' that they are mak­ing se­ri­ous changes in the in­ter­nal sys­tem of the par­lia­ment, one of the changes is giv­ing the deputy speaker of the par­lia­ment to the op­po­si­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to Ahmed Warte, the speaker will have two deputies; one of them will be given to other blocs in the par­lia­ment. "This di­vi­sion seems fair," Ahmed be­lieves. Ac­cord­ing to the old in­ter­nal sys­tem, the ma­jor­ity bloc se­lected the speaker, the deputy speaker and the sec­re­tary of the par­lia­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to the draft of new in­ter­nal sys­tem of the par­lia­ment, three ses­sions are held within a week, the re­main­ing days are de­voted to com­mit­tees' meet­ings and call­ing min­is­ters. "This de­ci­sion ex­isted be­fore, but only two meet­ings were be­ing held weekly and a huge amount of time was wasted,” ex­plained Ahmed Warte.

Warte says that although com­mit­tee mem­bers of the new in­ter­nal sys­tem amend­ment are in agree­ment with most of the ar­ti­cles and sec­tions of the draft, there are some mat­ters that should be solved in­side the par­lia­ment hall through vot­ing.

The fi­nal draft of the new in­ter­nal sys­tem is to be writ­ten within the next two-com­mit­tee meet­ings and to be sent to par­lia­ment pres­i­dency.

Warte be­lieves that in the cur­rent ses­sions of the par­lia­ment, the new in­ter­nal sys­tem will be voted on and the next term of par­lia­ment it will be taken ad­van­tage of.
