Byline: MH/SR

Baghdad, Apr 23, (VOI) a" A number of lawmakers and politicians announced on Wednesday that the Reconciliation and Liberation bloc merged with al-Wattan party, to form a new political entity called 'The Arab Iraqi Assemblage.'

"Due to the current deteriorations that Iraq is experiencing, and the environments that the Reconciliation and Liberation bloc and al-Wattan party were subjected to, as a result of the personal behavior and the decision making practiced by one of its members, and because of the compatible subjective circumstances of both of them, leaderships of the bloc and party decided to merge with each other, to form a new entity called (The Arab Iraqi Assemblage) that includes 33 figures of different social categories," Abdul-Kareem Ali Abbtan, head of the assemblage, said in a press conference at the convention center in Baghdad.

"As we announce forming this assemblage, our hearts are open to any national effort that works for the sake of Iraq," he added.

Abbtan explained that the assemblage's political project is considered part of the Iraqi case solution.

"We hope that entities inside and outside the political process would have joint-efforts to rescue the country," he explained.

On October 11, 2006, and with a majority of 141 votes, the Iraqi Parliament decided to lift the immunity offered to lawmaker Mishaan al-Juburi, head of the Reconciliation and Liberation bloc and al-Wattan party, due to corruption accusations addressed to him by the Supreme Judicial Council
