For the second time Iraq's parliament fails to elect the president of the republic

For the second time Iraq's parliament fails to elect the president of the republic The Iraqi parliament failed to elect the president of the republic, Saturday, after 126 deputies belonging to different political blocs boycotted the session designated for this.  On Saturday, the Iraqi parliament failed to elect the president of the republic, after boycotting 126 deputies belonging to different political blocs, for the session designated for that, and set next Wednesday a new date for choosing the president of the republic.  This is the second attempt to elect a president of the country, in the midst of a continuous political crisis for months.  Six months after the early parliamentary elections held in October 2021, Iraq is still without a new president, and therefore without a new prime minister who assumes executive power.  A statement issued by the Parliament's media department indicated that a regular session was held with the attendance of 202 members out of 320.  The statement added: "The House of Representatives held a session headed by Muhammad al-Halbousi and attended by 202 deputies. The members of the Finance Committee were voted on, and the first reading of the draft emergency support law for food security and development began."  The election of the President of the Republic requires the vote of two-thirds of the members of Parliament, ie 220 deputies.
