Al-Halbousi: My resignation from the presidency of the Iraqi parliament came to me, and I did not discuss it with anyone.

The Speaker of the Iraqi Parliament, Muhammad al-Halbousi, revealed that the decision of his resignation, which will be considered by the Iraqi parliament, during a session next Wednesday, he thought about it a lot, but did not discuss its content with anyone, and stressed the need for relations between political forces to be normal.


"The decision to resign, I did not discuss it with anyone," adding that "this step has always been on my mind," Al-Halbousi said, in a speech within the activities of the Al-Rafidain Forum for Dialogue in Baghdad.


Regarding the political crisis in Iraq, he commented that "there should be a normal relationship between the political forces, and this relationship was marred by many crises, which we have to cancel."


He stressed that his resignation "would not obstruct the next parliament session."


This comes after Sputnik reported that the Iraqi parliament will hold a session, next Wednesday, to vote on al-Halbousi's resignation and elect a deputy speaker.
