27 January 2013
BAGHDAD: Iraqiya bloc, headed by Iyad Alawi, rejected the decision taken by Premier Nouri al-Maliki to grant its ministers "obligatory vacation" as" legally groundless".

In a statement, copy received by Aswat al-Iraq, Spokeswoman Maysoon al-Damalouji said that the bloc's  ministers were not absent from their duties, but did not attend the Cabinet session for their rejection of "neglect policies" practiced by the government

The bloc announced Saturday it is boycotting the parliament session, except those connected with the withdrawal of confidence from the government and connected with the demands of the demonstrators.
