Legal process for Iraq president's replacement ordered

World Bulletin/News Desk

The Attorney General of Iraq has requested that the Iraqi National Assembly initiate the legal procedure for electing the president to replace President Jalal Talabani since he has remained distant from his position for too long a period.

Iraqi President Jalal Talabani has continued treatment at Germany’s university hospital since December 20 after suffering from a brain hemorrhage on December 17, 2012 in Bagdad.

According to the Iraqi constitution, the parliament must elect a new president to replace a president who has been distanced from his position for whatever reason.
