Abstract

The Topics of the resignation of the Prime Minister is one of the most important constitutional issues that did not take its abundant share in constitutional studies despite the fact that many constitutions regulate some of its provisions, so theoretical and practical necessities have led us to submit to a research topic (constitutional and legal organization for the resignation of the President of the Council Ministers under the Constitution of the Republic of Iraq for the year 2005) in order to define and review the procedural and substantive provisions related to resignation, as well as to clarify the implications of the resignation with respect to the continuation of the work of the Council of Ministers, and the consequent transformation of the status of the resigned government from a government Full powers to the caretaker government according to the principle of ministerial solidarity, and without neglecting to compare the position of the Republic of Iraq’s Constitution of 2005 with other constitutions on the one hand, and to clarify the extent of consistency of constitutional provisions with the legal provisions stipulated in other legislation.
