Iraq's Parliament to get back to work per high court order

Iraq's high court ordered Parliament to resume sessions Sunday, deeming the delay in proceedings unconstitutional, according to the New York Times.

Abdul Sattar Beeraqdar, the Supreme Judicial Council of Iraq, ordered the Parliament to fill key positions so the government body can begin a new session, according to CNN. The court found that the withholding from proceedings has exeeded the constitutional 3 week time span.

The Parliament, which was elected in March, only met for 18 minutes at the time of its instatement, according to the New York Times.
