     The Republic of Iraq has made a significant way in its constitutional development. Its first constitution was adopted in 1924, and Iraq was one of the first countries in the Middle East that got on the path of construction of a modern law-based society self-regulating through clear government institutions described in the Basic Law.
      From the declaration of the Republic in 1958 and up till 2003 the country was governed by military officers who used tough authoritarian methods. They blocked creation of real representative democratic bodies to prevent emergence and organizational structuring of real opposition to their power [7, p. 44], till the intervention of external forces in 2003.
      There are a few Mandaeism followers in the south of Iraq (about 10,000) [14]. The rest of the population follow various Christian confessions and Churches: Chaldean Catholic Church, Syrian Catholic Church, Armenian Catholic Church, Roman Catholic Church, Assyrian Church of the East, Syrian Jacobite Orthodox Church, Armenian Apostolic Church, Ancient Assyrian Church of the East and others [5, p. 42].  ……………………………………………………………………………
