Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The Council of Representatives (Arabic: مجلس النواب‎, romanized: Majlis an-Nuwwāb al-ʿIrāqiyy ; Kurdish: ئه‌نجومه‌نی نوێنه‌ران, Enjumen-e Nûnerên) is the unicameral legislature of the Republic of Iraq. As of 2020, it comprises 329 seats and meets in Baghdad inside the Green Zone.

As a result of the ongoing 2019 Iraqi protests, the Council of Representatives approved a new law on 24 December 2019 which aims to make it easier for independent politicians to win a seat in the Council of Representatives.
