Iraq's acting speaker has called lawmakers to convene for parliament's second session since the March election.
Fouad Massoum says the 325 legislators will convene on Monday to elect a new speaker.
Iraq's parliament only met once since the March 7 election that produced no clear winner. During the June 14 session, Massoum left the meeting open, yet unattended in a technicality intended to buy the factions more time to choose a new leadership.
Last week, Iraq's highest ruled the decision illegal and ordered the lawmakers to get back to work after.
