Shafaq News / President of the Supreme Judicial Council, Faiq Zidan, met on Monday with the Special Representative for the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert.
The two sides discussed the Judiciary's role in addressing the judicial issues causing the current political impasse in the country.
Iraq marked its longest post-election deadlock last month, as infighting among political parties prevents the formation of a government.
More than nine months since an October election, lawmakers tasked with choosing a president and prime minister looked no closer to an agreement, bringing the country to a record +290 days without a head of state or cabinet.
Powerful Iraqi Shiite Muslim cleric Muqtada al-Sadr blames Iran-aligned parties for the failed government formation and accuses them of corruption, but his followers also control some of the worst-managed government departments.
Sadr has called for early elections and unspecified changes to the constitution after withdrawing his lawmakers from parliament in June.
