A movement to resolve the position of Speaker of Parliament after the end of the Eid holiday

Following the conclusion of the Eid Al-Fitr vacation, Representative Hadi Al-Salami said on Friday that efforts are underway to settle the Speaker of the House of Representatives position.

“Deciding on the Speaker of the House of Representatives position without political consensus is not possible, and this is what is happening now through a series of meetings that push this option by adopting a road map to vote on a candidate for this important position,” stated Al-Salami in an interview.

“The movement has escalated recently,” he continued, “especially with the existence of priority consensuses on the mechanisms for resolution through putting forward a consensual candidate.” It is anticipated that the matter will be brought before the House of Representatives following the conclusion of the Eid al-Fitr holiday.

He made the argument that “passing significant legislation and fulfilling a constitutional entitlement requires resolving the Speaker of the House of Representatives position.”

After cases were filed with the Federal Court, disagreements between various political factions hindered the selection of a speaker for the House of Representatives many months ago.
