    A political party submits a lawsuit to the Federal Court to activate the law of dual nationality 08/15/2017 Iraq's national loyalty party demanded Tuesday the judiciary to activate the dual citizenship law, which was approved by the House of Representatives in the previous session, which prevents holders of dual nationality from holding sovereign and administrative positions. "Some of the spoilers used their dual passports to escape justice," said Ahmad al-Shammari, a spokesman for the party, in a statement received by Sky Press. "The non-activation of the law is a guarantee for the corrupters of legal accountability. To Iraq only note that the granting of nationality from any other country leads a constitutional right imposed on him loyalty to the same country. Al-Shammari stressed that "influential political parties bear the responsibility of disrupting the implementation of the law because it will prevent most of its leaders from taking up senior positions. The law was approved by the Constitution, which was voted by the people in 2005 and allowed dual citizenship of Iraqi citizens provided that no holder of another nationality, In the country, and that the issue of allowing representatives of diplomatic missions and ambassadors to take citizenship of the country in which they work, is a flagrant violation of the Constitution and international norms. He pointed out that "Iraqi law, which was adopted in 1935 requires the accounting of all those who hold Iraqi nationality and misuse the use, even if he is abroad, while the current law can not account for the spoilers and they are inside Iraq because they have foreign nationality." The party spokesman said that "the Iraqi National Accord Party will submit a formal request to the Federal Court to activate the law to be binding in the next phase." The Iraqi National Loyalty Party formed in early 2016 of Iraqi personalities known to aspire to build a strong Iraq and has its objectives, which are the most important to eliminate corruption, and then got the ratification of the establishment by the Independent Electoral Commission for elections. A number of Iraqi politicians have a dual prison that helped them to evade the Iraqi judiciary such as Governor of Basra Majid Nasraoui and Minister of Trade Falah al-Sudani, while some ambassadors have the nationality of the same country they serve as "ambassadors" of Iraq such as the Iraqi ambassador to Australia Hussein Amiri as well as ambassador Iraq in Jordan Safia Suhail, and this represents a clear violation of Iraqi law. http://www.skypressiq.net/2017/8/15/%D8%AD%D8%B2%D8%A8-%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%8A-%D9%8A%D9%82%D8%AF%D9%85-%D8%AF%D8%B9%D9%88%D9%89-%D9%84%D9%84%D9%85%D8%AD%D9%83%D9%85%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A7%D8%AA%D8%AD%D8%A7%D8%AF%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D9%84%D8%AA%D9%81%D8%B9%D9%8A%D9%84-%D9%82%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%88%D9%86-%D8%A7%D8%B2%D8%AF%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%AC-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AC%D9%86%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A9
