Mohammed al-Dainy was elected in the Iraqi legislative election, December 2005 as one of the eleven MPs of the secular Iraqi National Dialogue Front party. In February 2009, two of his bodyguards were arrested on suspicion of involvement in the 2007 Iraqi Parliament bombing and other attacks. Alaa Khairallah Hashim, his security chief and Ryadh Ibrahim al-Dainy, his nephew, confessed on television and said the MP had given authorization for the bomber to enter the parliament area.
