On Wednesday, Representative Hoshyar Abdullah accused the big parties of deluding the people that the new election law is in the interest of independents, while it will give the same parties the chance to win the upcoming elections.
Abdullah said: “The big parties have deceived the people that the new election law is in the interest of the independents, but the truth is the opposite. The loyalists of the parties who possess money and weapons most of them will win the elections, by imposing their influence and control over the districts that they control, according to what the law stipulates. The booby traitor is the winner with the most votes, not the one who gets more than fifty percent.
He added, “This law is unjust to the many districts that are not recognized by the federal government because they will not have deputies in Parliament, in addition to the problem of integrating districts that have a population of less than one hundred thousand with cities.”
Noting: “The days will prove how the anger of the street was exploited to pass a law that serves the political class and ensures its continued control of the reins of government, and there are many mines and mazes within this law that will be revealed in the near future.”
It is noteworthy that the Iraqi Council of Representatives voted yesterday, Tuesday, on the legislative elections law, despite the protest of the Kurdish blocs.
