Shafaq News/ The political conflicts and the crisis of the local government formation in Diyala, which have lasted for a long time, are close to being resolved.
A source told Shafaq News Agency on Tuesday that "the voting for the local leaders in Diyala is nearing its end, thanks to new agreements among the political blocs".
The source added that "some parliament and Diyala council members are finalizing the agreements, and they plan to announce an official verdict on this issue either tonight or tomorrow, Wednesday, to schedule a new council session".
The source emphasized “the ongoing efforts to ensure the success of the next session and to avoid the failures of the previous sessions”.
However, the new Diyala provincial council, despite intensive preparations, could not hold its first session on Monday night for the third time in two weeks.
Shafaq News Agency correspondent reported that the council's inability to hold the session was due to the lack of a quorum for the third consecutive time. Despite notifying members to attend and implementing security measures, the council faced a quorum shortage, with only 6 out of 15 members in attendance, leading to an extended wait and eventual cancellation of the session due to insufficient agreements.
