Iraqi Parliament No-Shows
Iraq’s parliament failed to reconvene as scheduled Tuesday because so few members showed up after the month’s recess. Only about a dozen of the 275 members of parliament appeared at the Green Zone parliament building. Officials said the assembly would not try to meet again until sometime next week.
The legislature has several urgent items to consider including the oil law, constitutional review and changes in regulations that effectively bar many Sunnis from government jobs.
As Cernig notes, that’s the entirety of the AP report, so we have little clue about the context. Certainly, though, it doesn’t sound like good news.
