    The legal expert, Tariq Harb, confirmed today, Thursday, that the Federal Court order recognized the constitutionality of the Speaker and his two deputies election. 

    Harb said in a statement received by the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "the Supreme Court's order recognized the constitutionality election of Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi and his two deputies, and did not cancel the measures taken by the Presidency of the Council against the two deputies Khazal Khashan and Mahmoud al-Mashhadani, and this is clear from the court's decision that it mentioned." 

    In the sixth line of the state order, which states: (The Federal Supreme Court decided to stop the work of the elected Presidency of the House of Representatives) - thus, the court’s order is on future cases and not on previous cases that were issued against Al-Mashhadani and Khashan and the election of the head of the Halbousi Council and his two deputies They are measures that are not covered by the state order because the House of Representatives had previously taken them and the Supreme Court upheld them.". 

    Harb also explained that "the state order includes stopping the new and future work of the Presidency of the Council only. 

    The election procedures are constitutional when the matter described the elected Presidency, meaning that supported the election, and the description of the Court of the Presidency of the Council of Representatives with the phrase "elected in the first session on 9/1" means the court's recognition of the legality and constitutionality of the session Election of Al-Halbousi and his two deputies.
