All Political Parties in Kurdistan Region to Meet over Kirkuk Basnews English 15/09/2019 - 14:47 Published in Kurdistan http://www.basnews.com/index.php/en/news/kurdistan/546538 ERBIL — All the political parties in Kurdistan Region will meet later this week to discuss the concerns over the upcoming provincial elections, especially in the disputed Kurdish province of Kirkuk. Khasraw Goran, a senior member of ruling Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) told BasNews that the meeting comes as an urgent discussion on the concerns related to Kirkuk and the provincial elections scheduled for April 2020. The KDP has already appealed to the federal court for an amendment to the provincial election law, which it believes deprives tens of thousands of Kurds from their right to vote as they are currently displaced. According to Goran, the federal court is expected to announce the result of its investigations on Monday (16th September).

KRG officials to land in Baghdad on Tuesday for budget, census negotiations Kurdistan 24 | 8 hours ago https://www.kurdistan24.net/en/news/30b876f2-5c53-4d8d-bf09-ed4c3804a222 The trip was planned at a meeting of the regional cabinet on Thursday, but a date was not specified until now. (Photo: Archive) KRG Kurdistan Region Baghdad Iraq Budget Planning Ministry Census A+AA- ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – The Kurdistan Regional Government’s (KRG) representative in Baghdad announced that a Kurdish delegation would begin its visit to Baghdad on Tuesday to discuss a number of often-contentious issues with the federal government, including the budget the upcoming national census. “The Kurdistan Region wants to resolve all its differences with Baghdad,” Fares Isa told Kurdistan 24 in an interview on Sunday. The plan for the officials to travel to the nation’s capital to meet with their counterparts in the federal government was decided at a meeting of the regional cabinet on Thursday, but a date had not yet been specified. “The KRG agreed to send a delegation to Baghdad to ensure the Kurdistan Region’s interests are represented in the 2020 Iraqi budget,” read a government statement released on Wednesday. During a press conference that day, KRG spokesperson Jotyar Adil said the Kurdish delegation would “initiate talks and exchange information regarding [Iraq’s] budget bill” with Iraq’s Ministry of Finance. The central government in Baghdad and the KRG have long been at odds over the budget since the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime in 2003. In the budget passed last year, the Kurdistan Region received only 13 percent of the national share, almost a third less than the 17 percent it had been allotted in previous years. Ties between the two have improved significantly since the beginning of 2019, with the formation of a new federal government headed by Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi. Diplomacy between the two had reached an all-time low in the aftermath of the Kurdistan Region’s historic independence referendum in September 2017. Another controversial issue between the two governments is the planned upcoming census, also scheduled for 2020. Iraq’s last census was held in 1997 and did not include the Kurdistan Region. More recent counts generally estimate population based on statistics provided by the national food ration program and have often been incomplete in disputed territories. A full accounting of regional populations is crucial for planning and budgeting in any nation. In Iraq, where mass displacement and campaigns of ethnic cleansing have been endemic to conflict for decades, such a survey takes on political significance. Lack of reliable statistics has fueled discord between rival populations claiming majorities in various regions of Iraq, most notably in the oil-rich province of Kirkuk, adding to the difficulty of addressing fundamental disagreements. On Thursday, President of the Kurdistan Region Nichervan Barzani met with Nouri Sabah al-Dulaimi, Iraq’s planning minister. In Iraq, the Ministry of Planning is responsible for conducting the census. In the meeting, Barzani and Dulaimi discussed preparations being made, with a KRG statement stressing that “cooperation and coordination between the federal government, the KRG, and the international community in the process,” was essential.

The two also underscored the reform process in the KRG and the current political situation in the region.

The leading parties in the Kurdistan Region – the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), and Gorran (Change) Movement – want to reach a consensus between all parties by ensuring all sides participate in the process of drafting a constitution.
9-15-2019 Newshound Guru Kaperoni ...guru Frank26 likes to refer to a minister of planning document talking about a 1 to $1 exchange rate. But it never said it would get there overnight! And as I've already said on numerous occasions Iraq could never afford a significant RV of the dinar due to the fact that there is in excess 42 trillion dinar in circulation. If the minister of planning was talking about an overnight event, it would have to be a LOP. The only thing that we should be hoping for is a gradual appreciation as stated by the IMF. Such an event like this would allow the money supply to be reduced as the currency appreciated. 9-14-2019 Intel Guru Frank26 ...I will tell you this with confidence, the visual aids of the new small category notes and fils are coming out this month of September. The visual aids are coming out this month. ...a little while after the visual aids IMO they will lift the three zeros and a little bit after they lift the three zeros they'll introduce the new small category notes or at the same time when they lift it they will do it all together...the moment you see the visual aids is the moment I say goodbye...
