The Iraqi parliament on Sunday decided to form a panel to amend the Arab country’s constitution.
“The parliament has formed a panel to amend the constitution and called on political blocs to nominate members to the panel,” lawmaker Selim Shawki told Anadolu Agency.
The Iraqi constitution was approved in a referendum in 2005.
There are 18 articles of the 142-article document that are disputed by Iraq’s political blocs.
One of the most controversial articles is the one related to the status of the oil-rich province of Kirkuk in northern Iraq.
An amended version of the Iraqi constitution must by approved by a referendum.
