The State of Law coalition urged the Iraqi courts to hold the expelled Speaker of the House of Representatives, Muhammad al-Halbousi, responsible today, Tuesday. They emphasized that the file is uncertain because the government’s negotiations to withdraw American combat forces coincide with the meetings demanding the Sunni region.
In an interview with the, coalition member Ibrahim Al-Sakini stated that “the partition project is one of the repercussions of dealing with the Zionist entity” and that “the judiciary saved Iraq from collapse and the malicious plans that Al-Halbousi was seeking to implement.”
The speaker went on, saying, “The current state of affairs in the country does not tolerate the regionalization and division projects called for by some parties that have lost everything,” adding that the aim of the discordant voices calling for the separation of Iraq into regions is to incite racism and division.
Al-Dulaimi said in closing, “The coincidence of the meetings demanding the Sunni region with the government’s negotiations to remove the American combat forces puts the file in doubt. It is necessary for the solidarity of the popular, political, and judicial forces to reject these malicious plans.”
Observers said that a number of political and popular circles denounced the Sunni gatherings that were held these days and called for the creation of a Sunni area with the approval of some tribe elders backed by the ousted Speaker of the House of Representatives, Muhammad al-Halbousi.
