AbstractThis paper is an attempt to shed light on one of the issues that consumed a considerable part of the discussions of the Iraqi Parliament, between 1945-1958. It specifically focuses on the discussions raised by the opponent members making 7% of the assembly, and the rest of the members, the majority, who were heads of tribes, landowners, and the rich who were supported by the government and the monarch (the royal family).
Fairly speaking some of these discussions, raised by the opponents, clearly lacks true and real understanding to the sufferers of the Iraqi farmer and his being mostly under the bondage of the landowner.
The Iraqi farmer was deprived from the simplest human rights, including the social and the political ones. This was clearly reflected in his right to vote for the Parliament elections, in which he was mostly obliged to vote for the landowner, which assured the winning of those landowners to occupy the greatest number of chairs in the Parliament all through the king region.
