The Sunni Arab political bloc will end boycott of the parliament sessions on Monday after the Iraqi government transferred its leader from his residence to the Green Zone on Sunday, the bloc's leader told Xinhua.
"I am now on my way to the al-Rasheed Hotel in the Green Zone and will attend the parliament session starting from tomorrow," Adnan al-Dulaimi, head of the National Accordance Front told Xinhua by telephone.
"That means the Accordance Front will end the boycott of the parliament sessions," Dulaimi added.
Earlier in the afternoon, Mowafaq al-Rubaiyie, the Iraqi National Security Advisor, visited Dulaimi's residence in the Adel neighborhood in western Baghdad and discussed the safety of the Dulaimi after U.S. and Iraqi troops detained dozens of his guards and aides on suspicion of linking to a booby-trapped car found near his office compound in the Adel neighborhood.
Earlier, Dulaimi accused the government of imposing house arrest on him in an attempt to keep him silent.
On Saturday, Dulaimi's largest Sunni Arab bloc with 44 members in the 275-seat parliament announced its withdrawal from the parliament, protesting the crackdown of their leader and the detention of dozens of his aides.
"We have decided to withdraw from the Council of representatives(parliament) until Adnan al-Dulaimi returns by today or tomorrow," said Ahmad Sulaiman, member of National Accordance Front in the parliament.
