20 Aug 18, 06:49 PM chattels  US encourages Iraq to adhere to legal 'timeline' for government formation By Rudaw http://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/200820181

It is Masum's constitutional responsibility to call upon the Council of Representatives to convene within 15 days from the date of ratification of the election results. He was encouraged to do so by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Sunday.

After the new parliament meets, the eldest member shall chair the first session to elect the speaker and two deputies.

Then as political blocs reach agreements, they will have 90 days to select the prime minister, who will then choose his cabinet.
chattels  "Formation of a new government is solely an Iraqi matter and should be conducted in a manner that protects Iraq’s national interests and sovereignty," added the US statement.

chattels  Four Iraqi parties – Sayirun, Nasr, Hikma, and Watanya – announced an initial agreement on Sunday night, which will be turned into the biggest bloc once other parties are brought on board.

“In a national Iraqi decision springing from the interest of our country, and responding to the demands of the people, we agreed today to form the core of an alliance that will seek to form the parliamentary bloc that can form the government,” read a joint statement issued following the meeting.

The new alliance is seen as being pro-US, while the as yet unannounced alliance between State of Law, led by former PM Nouri Maliki, and the Fatih (Conquest) alliance, led by Hadi Amiri, is deemed to be pro-Iran.

The latter claims it has the backing of Kurdish parties – something the Kurdish parties, particularly the ruling Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), are yet to confirm. http://www.rudaw.net/english/kurdistan/200820182

President of the Republic Fuad Masoum congratulated the Iraqi people by Eid al-Adha, stressing that he will guide the convening of the new parliament in its specific constitutional time, calling for dedicating all efforts and energies necessary to achieve reforms that ensure the decent life of all citizens.
"I call on the next government and the new parliament, which we will convene in its specific constitutional time, to dedicate all the efforts and energies necessary to achieve the actual and comprehensive reforms," ​​the statement said. To ensure the decent life of all citizens and adhere to the Constitution as a basis for all policies and procedures required, and we are confident of the ability of our people to build a state of citizenship and equal rights, progress and well-being. http://www.alliraqnews.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=76860

*Lawmakers will elect a parliamentary Speaker and two deputies by an absolute majority within their first session.

*The new president will within 15 days formally task the largest parliamentary bloc’s nominee with forming a government.

*The prime minister-designate has 30 days to put together a cabinet and present it to parliament for approval.

*Parliament must approve the government programme and each individual minister in separate absolute majority votes.

If the prime minister-designate fails to put together a governing coalition after 30 days, or if parliament rejects the prime minister-designate’s proposed cabinet, the president must nominate another candidate within 15 days.

In order to do so the largest bloc must be clearly established at / by the convening of the Parliament and election of the President / Speaker of Parliament.

Iran-US conflict leaves Abadi in a dilemma  Ali Mamouri August 16, 2018  Read more: link

Iran has enough influence to replace Abadi with other candidates. The Fatah Alliance, the second biggest winner in the May parliamentary elections — is completely pro-Iranian, as are some other Shiite parties such as the State of Law Coalition, which already criticized Abadi for his support for the United States and expressed its support for Iran. The representative of the Kurdistan Regional Government in Iran, Nazem Dabbagh, also slammed Abadi for his commitment to US sanctions, calling his statement a rash decision that should never have been spoken. He also expressed Erbil support to Iran and said that “Kurdistan will continue trading with Iran.”  Read more: http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2018/08/iraq-iran-us-sanction-abadi.html#ixzz5OabT32pE

Abadi is also facing a difficult situation balancing between Turkey and Washington, whose differences have recently escalated.

in his joint press conference with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Aug. 15, Abadi said that Iraqi government supports Turkey in its economic crisis that has resulted from US sanctions imposed on Turkey, pointing out that his visit to Turkey was to strengthen cooperation between the two countries.

Iran and Turkey are working on using their local currencies in trading instead of US dollars to reduce the effects of sanctions on their economies. As Iraq's economy desperately needs Iranian and Turkish goods, Iraq is likely to join this trend of using its neighbors’ currencies or other currencies rather than US dollars in its trade with them.

In this situation, US sanctions will bring Iran and Turkey closer in Iraq and provide an opportunity for Abadi to gain their support for a second term after he already gained the US support for the same matter.

Baxter  The Zimbabwean dollar (sign: $, or Z$ to distinguish it from other dollar-denominated currencies) was the official currency of Zimbabwe from 1980 to 12 April 2009. During this time, it was subject to periods of above-average inflation, followed by a period of hyperinflation.[3]

The Zimbabwean dollar was introduced in 1980 to directly replace the Rhodesian dollar at par (1:1), at a similar value to the US dollar. Over time, hyperinflation in Zimbabwe reduced the Zimbabwe dollar to one of the lowest valued currency units in the world. It was redenominated three times (in 2006, 2008 and 2009), with denominations up to a $100 trillion banknote issued.[4] The final redenomination produced the "fourth dollar" (ZWL), which was worth 1025 ZWD (first dollars).

Use of the Zimbabwean dollar as an official currency was effectively abandoned on 12 April 2009. It was demonetised in 2015, with outstanding accounts able to be reimbursed until April 30, 2016.[5][6] In place of the Zimbabwean dollar, currencies including the South African rand, Botswana pula, pound sterling, Indian rupee, euro, Japanese yen, Australian dollar, Chinese yuan, and the United States dollar are now regularly used

The Director of the Central Bank of Iraq branch of Basra Qasim Rahif on the high purchasing power and tourism for the Iraqi citizen after the decline in the price of currency in a number of neighboring countries compared to the Iraqi dinar.
"The decline in the Iranian and Turkish currency against the hard currency and the Iraqi dinar allowed citizens to raise the level of shopping and shopping from these countries, in addition to the increase in the proportion of travelers for tourism purposes from Iraqis," Rahif told Al-Marbad radio.
He pointed out that Iraq depends almost entirely on imports and the low national currency of these countries to increase the purchasing power of the country and citizens in the import and purchase of goods. link

Four hundred million dollars, is the number that was smuggled into Iran after being pulled out of the market daily trading in legitimate ways within a few days, this was revealed by official sources in the Iraqi government, stressing that it is not difficult to smuggle or take out with an estimated border area by one hundred and three hundred Km of the common border which is considered open between the two countries.
According to press reports, many Iraqis used mules to transport thousands of dollars to Iran to avoid laws regulating the amount of money that can be taken out of the country.

DinarResearcher  According to this figure, observers see the economic situation that the Iraqi dinar is in danger after the decline in the value of cash due to the rise of the dollar, which began to increase demand in the Iraqi market, where many of the commentators said that the turnout of the dollar increased in the past days by people or Financial companies closely linked to Tehran, pointing out that the withdrawals of the dollar is increasing from Baghdad, Erbil, Sulaymaniyah, Najaf, Basra and Karbala as the richest provinces in Iraq in terms of acquisition of huge liquidity.

According to these data, economists stress the need for firm action by the government in cooperation with the central bank, including determining the amount of dollar can be sold to companies or persons and the establishment of a database for each person who buys the dollar and where it is headed or its spending to maintain the price of the dinar and prevent Its collapse under new variables.

DinarResearcher  The value of the Iraqi currency fell from one thousand and two hundred dinars against the dollar last Sunday to one thousand and two hundred and ten dinars currently, after a long stabilization witnessed by the Iraqi currency against the dollar by a policy adopted by the Central Bank of Iraq early this year, while observers believe that increasing the purchase of the dollar will lead to a shortage in the market and thus affect Negatively on the dinar, and if the situation continues for long periods may decline significantly local currency to reach one thousand and three hundred Iraqi dinars per dollar.

“During the meeting, the future of the political process, and the ongoing dialogue between national forces, especially with the near ratification of the results of the elections, were discussed,”

“I don't agree with all the conditions put forth by Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr, although we are close to each other. He has put forth good qualities for the one taking the helm of authority, but then there are impossible conditions,” Mutlaq said.

No candidate could meet all these demands, he said, meaning Sadr may need to compromise.
chattels  Iraq needs “a national government, capable of transcending the narrow mindset of sectarianism and nationalism,” he said.

Without this “I don’t see there is a future for one Iraq. The result is Iraq heading towards the unknown,” Mutlaq added.

Aug 15 18 PM chattels  Iraqi Sunni leaders established the ‘National Axis Alliance’ in a bid to unite the Sunni political house and have a stronger position in government formation.

“We today stand to announce for you a national political alliance seeking to serve the nation and build a state," read the declaration of the formation of the alliance on Tuesday. http://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/150820181

chattels  This new alliance comes after a manual recount, which led to a few seat changes, but no major parties gaining or losing. The parties have a period to dispute the recount, and then the federal court must give the final approval.

chattels  The Sunnis will ponder over a candidate to send to the parliament for the position of speaker, like in the past. A prominent Sunni politician, Saleh al-Mutlaq, told Rudaw they haven’t agreed on a candidate yet.

15 Aug 18 early Morning la chocolatiere  Its truly unbelievable ! ! there are 240 appeal ( complaints ) about the recount ? really ? it is a never ending story .. malcontent or corrupt ! whatever ! Quote :
Iraqi political parties on Sunday appealed the results of a nationwide election recount, citing corruption and a lack of confidence in government institutions.
Complaints of fraud and vote rigging prompted a nationwide recount that showed almost no difference from the initial tally. Populist Shiite cleric Moqtada Al Sadr retained his victory, after his Sairoon (marching forward) bloc kept all of its 54 seats. The cleric is now in a dominant position to form the country's next government.
The Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) announced Sunday that political parties have three days to appeal the results.
The results will then be ratified by the Supreme Court. Once that is done, the current president, Fuad Masum, has three months to convene parliament to elect a new prime minister, president and speaker and then to form a cabinet.

Iraqi Vice President Ayad Allawi's National Alliance bloc described the outcome of the recount as "another disappointment".

"We are calling for the cancellation of the results, we were the first to call for a boycott because there were clear violations of voter fraud that can no longer be hidden," the bloc's spokesman told The National.

In June, parliament had ordered the manual recount in response to concerns about the voting system, which used machines to read ballots digitally linked to each voter’s ID registration card and fingerprint.

Various lawmakers and voters complained of machines breaking down and alleged wide-scale fraud in the initial election results, which triggered protests calling for the recount. Yet, the results remained the same in 13 of the country's 18 provinces.

The IHEC's leadership was suspended and replaced with a panel of judges to monitor the process.

14 Aug 18, 08:30 AM chattels  No deal on the table for Kurds in Baghdad By Hiwa Jamal http://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/13082018

chattels  Sadr recently published 42 conditions for anyone who wants to become prime minister of Iraq – most importantly they are independent. This alone will prevent former PM Nouri al-Maliki from returning to office, and undermines the chances of incumbent PM Haider al-Abadi keeping his job.

chattels  Politicians are locked in heated discussion behind closed doors on the formation of the next Iraqi government, as widespread protests against poor services and a lack of jobs rock the streets outside.

chattels  Despite months of talks, no party has succeeded in establishing a coalition capable of taking office.

The front led by Sadr includes Sayirun, Hikma, and al-Watanya. The front led by Nasr is holding discussions with Kurdish parties. Another front, which includes the Hashd-linked Fatih, Maliki’s State of Law, and Fadhila (Islamic Virtue Party), is also in discussion with the Kurds.

The Kurds may well play kingmaker.

 “Kurds are an important community in Iraq and should take part in the formation of the government and be partners,” Ali Alaq, an official from Abadi’s Nasr (Victory) alliance, told Rudaw.

Rudaw’s reporter had to pass through three checkpoints to reach the hotel where Alaq had arranged to be interviewed. Dozens of concrete blast barriers remain on Baghdad’s roads.
chattels  It appears that Ali Alaq is no longer State of Law Coalition.
