BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's new parliament has brought forward the date of its next session to July 13, the acting speaker said on Tuesday, after a five-week delay announced Monday was criticised by local lawmakers and the United States.
"For the sake of the public interest and committing to the constitutional procedures and preserving the continuity of building democracy... we decided to change the date (of the next session) to July 13," Mehdi al-Hafidh said in a statement.
