The Iraqi election law was already voted on and passed in parliament. ...So why is the news media telling us they still need to do this? This again is a FAKE spin on the news. They want to confuse and stall everything indefinitely. The real reason why they can’t yet implement it is they need candidates for the early elections and also they will need a way to prosecute the corrupt that will be taken out of the government. Already Iraq has hired consultants to come into Iraq to help clarify the procedure to run this new type of “open” election process. They are working out the details and will be successful. 2-20-2020 Newshound Guru MilitiaMan Article: "Deputy: Karbala’s 2020 budget is devoid of new project" [How can there be an RI when there is such a large deficit and no new projects?] I think they are about to change things, as this suggests they have the 2019 budget which, imo would reflect the FML amendment that will facilitate the new rate we expect to precede the 2020...

    Good morning all, and Happy Wednesday! I'm a bit slammed with non-dinar related work, so just a short update today. I do have more, but it should hold till the weekend. DJIA is solid over 29,000. BTC is on a strong hold over $10,000. A sincereto everyone for the awesome work in this thread: If you had any questions about the current progress of Allawi, just check the last page or two on that thread! (Currently page 5 and 6, it might be well past that by the time you see this!) You may have noticed a lack of chatter about "protesters" over the last week or two... that's just one of the topics that has quietly just left the news. Of course we don't see anyone making a big deal out of positive news, because that's not the kind of stuff that sells newspapers. But it IS the kind of thing we want to see, because it's what is going to lead us to a higher value on the Dinar. Allawi is building a foundation, the pieces are falling into place, and I have nothing negative to report. I am very interested in seeing a continuation of this one: I think that all makes for a pretty fantastic Wednesday update, even if it is short! I've got some work to get done, y'all be good, happy, and keep up the good work... Gooooo RRRVVVV!!!!! - Adam

    Government investment: The estimated government investment during the NDP years amount to 132 trillion dinars (USD 111.7 billion) and constitute about 60% of the total investment required (220.6 trillion dinars), as shown in the above table. Non-government (private) investment: The private sector is expected to contribute 88.6 trillion dinars (USD 75 billion) during the NDP years. These represent all private investment activities in Iraq, which constitutes 40% of the total investments required to achieve the target NDP growth rate. Sector distribution of required investments: In order to achieve targeted sector growth rates, we list below the estimated investments required annually for each economic sector. The oil sector obviously continues to assume a high percentage of investments (about 38.4% and 84.7 trillion dinars for the period 2018-2022). This reflects the large investments needed by this capital-intensive sector which also needs advanced technology to meet the obligations of international oil companies. The infrastructure sectors (electricity, water, construction, transport and communications) together account for 49.5% of the NDP investments. The electricity and water sector needs 20.2 trillion dinars; the building and reconstruction needs 39.6 trillion dinars to meet the needs in the affected areas in addition to the declining performance of the infrastructure nationwide, with the private sector being the main contributor (about 90% of total investments). The service sector also needs large investments during the NDP years (37.2 trillion dinars or 17% of total estimated investments) to enable it to respond to the citizens’ daily needs. Production and commodity sectors (agriculture and manufacturing) together need only 5.6% due to low capacity, poor technologies, unfair competition from imported goods and poor implementation of relevant measures and decisions.

    How Mahathir Muhammad made his country a large economic bloc in the world? Wednesday 19 February 2020 Baghdad / Al-Sabah Iraq is looking to benefit from the experiences of the major economic countries that started from an underdeveloped economic country to a country comparable to the great economic countries, especially that Iraq has the capabilities and capabilities that make it in the ranks of the major countries. According to specialists in the economic affairs, Iraq is able to restore its economic potential and promote it by reducing dependence on oil imports, whose revenues are usually not fixed, because they are affected by fluctuations in global markets, and what is happening in events around the world, as well as supporting the private sector and reducing dependence Government sectors to achieve a real economic renaissance. Malaysian experience One of these experiences is the Malaysian experience that Malaysia has managed to revive its economy since 1988, thanks to the Malaysian Prime Minister who assumed power in 1981, and whose rule was marked by economic growth and infrastructure prosperity in Malaysia, which transformed it from a poor country to the ranks of developed countries. That made him a hero in the eyes of the people of developing countries. Between 1988 and 1996, Malaysia witnessed 8% economic growth, and Mahathir released an economic plan entitled: The Way Forward or 2020 Vision 2020, confirming that Malaysia would become a developed country by 2020. Mahathir contributed to shifting Malaysia's economic dependence from agriculture and natural resources to industry and export, and per capita income doubled from 1990 to 1996. Despite the slowdown in economic growth in Malaysia today and the goal may not be achieved by 2020, its economy is still Stable. His greatest achievement during his tenure as Prime Minister was his economic recovery strategy after the Asian economic crisis of 1998. He disagreed with his advisors ’views and pegged the exchange rate to the US dollar, and this bold move caused Malaysia’s economy to recover faster than other countries. About Mahathir Muhammad Mahathir Muhammad is one of the most successful prime ministers in Malaysian history, and Mahathir has appeared on the signs of leadership and success from a young age.

    Iraq’s Allawi is committed to Kurdish share of federal budget: MP 34 minutes ago https://www.rudaw.net/english/middleeast/iraq/200220201 Iraqi Prime Minister-designate Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi makes a televised address in Baghdad, February 19, 2020. Photo: Iraqi Prime Minister's Media Office / HO / AFP ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Iraq’s Prime Minister-designate Mohammed Tawfik Allawi says he is committed to sending the Kurdistan Region its share of the federal budget as agreed by the outgoing administration, a Kurdish MP and negotiator told Rudaw on Thursday. Allawi has called on parliament to hold an extraordinary session on Monday to approve Iraq’s “first independent cabinet”. Hoshyar Zebari, a senior Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official, led a Kurdish delegation to Baghdad on Wednesday to meet with Allawi. Kurdish parties in the Baghdad parliament want to nominate their own candidates to sit on Allawi’s cabinet to guarantee Kurdish representation at a national level. They are also keen to preserve the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG)’s share of the federal budget and to resolve territorial disputes which threaten national security. Harem Kamal Agha, a Kurdish MP in Iraqi parliament and member of the Kurdish delegation, spoke to Rudaw TV on Thursday and described the meeting with Allawi. “He showed his commitment to all the financial entitlements of the Kurdistan Regional Government in the past budget and the budget of this year,” Agha said. “Yesterday, we listened to his cabinet manifesto for resolving existing issues. He himself pointed out the Kurdistan Regional Government’s financial entitlements as constitutional, legal, and, in his words, moral, that he would never abandon this,” he added. Baghdad cut the autonomous Kurdish region’s budget share from 17 percent to zero in 2014 in response to the KRG’s independent oil sales. The resulting financial crisis was compounded by a drop in world oil prices and the costly war with the Islamic State group (ISIS). This remained the case until 2018 when former Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi provided the Region with a monthly payment of $266 million to cover public sector salaries. The KRG was also permitted to continue selling oil independently. Under the tenure of caretaker Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi, who is considered a friend of the Kurds, the KRG was granted a 12.6 percent share of the 2019 federal budget. This was conditional on the KRG delivering a quota of 250,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil to Iraq’s state oil marketing company (SOMO). Although the KRG failed to comply with the oil quota, it still received its share of the budget, angering many Shiite leaders who accused Abdul-Mahdi of being too soft on the Kurds. At the end of 2019, the KRG reached a new oil-for-budget deal with Baghdad along roughly the same lines and began meeting its quota. Allawi reassured the Kurdish delegation that the relationship would continue to improve under his new government, Agha told Rudaw. “He said that he would emphasize even more on the [constructive] approach that [caretaker PM] Mr. Adil Abdul-Mahdi followed with regards to the budget and other things,” he said. Erbil-Baghdad relations have long been bedeviled by territorial disputes, which have left vast areas of ungoverned space open to jihadist infiltration. Parts of Kirkuk, Diyala, Saladin, and Nineveh are contested by the governments in Erbil and Baghdad. All of them have seen a spike in violence resulting from the failure of Iraqi and Kurdish forces to cooperate. Relations between the two hit their lowest ebb in October 2017 when an Iraqi offensive pushed the Kurdish Peshmerga out of the disputed territories. Allawi told the Kurdish delegation he would prioritize security in the disputed territories, but did not hint at plans to allow the return of Peshmerga forces to these areas. “He said he would work on full stability in Kirkuk, Mosul, and its surroundings, and other areas like Khanaqin,” Agha told Rudaw. Since Allawi was tasked with forming a new government on February 1, he has insisted on the right to choose his own cabinet composed of independent, technocratic, and qualified individuals. He has resisted efforts by parliamentary blocs to impose partisan candidates. Iraq’s Shiite, Sunni, and Kurdish components are concerned that a cabinet of independents could deprive their communities of a voice at the top table. “Like Kurds, most of other parties also are opposed [to Allawi selecting his ministers himself], but due to public dissatisfaction and mistrust [of the ruling class], some of them [parties] avoid starting a debate,” Agha said. “Everyone is against this style because it is not based on constitutional texts, so we saw most of the political parties, the Sunnis, Kurds, [Nouri] al-Maliki, reservations on the side of Ammar al-Hakeem. Only the Sadrists and Fatih support it, but they also have reservations,” he added. “They say because of the reality on the ground among the Iraqi public, especially in Baghdad, the center and south, this discontent by the people, the death of a lot of people among the security forces, protestors, they liken this phase as transitional to restore the prestige of the state and prepare for elections,” Agha said. However, it is not “the right method” to pick Kurdish ministers on behalf of the Kurdistan Region without consultation, he argued. “Kurds have not accepted this so far, although we believe we are part of the solution. In Saturday’s and future meetings, I believe we will make a final decision,” he added. Although it is up to the Kurdish delegation to decide whether or not Kurds will participate in the next government, the Shiites and some Sunnis will likely approve Allawi’s new cabinet regardless of Kurdish opposition, Agha warned. Kurdish parties currently hold three ministries in the federal government. According to members of the Kurdish delegation, Allawi is expected to return Kurdish ministers to these same posts. However, given his desire to offer a clean slate, it is not clear whether the same Kurdish ministers will remain in office after Monday.

    Diaper saddieman. First, deficit spending by the Bark Insane Obama Administration AND cohorts dug The United States Of America into a deep hole. Second, it takes spending to turn The United States Of America Ship around to a sustainable path to eliminate deficit spending and eliminate the accrued National Debt with reasonably taxed burgeoned enterprises IN The United States Of America BY bringing industries BACK to The United States Of America AND bringing foreign trade in balance like what is happening with China AND Europe among other Nations. Third, equitable agreements and commitments are to be maintained so The United States Of America is NOT paying for other Countries' affairs like with NATO AND combating illegal alien invasions INTO The United States Of America. Fourth, do YOU, diaper saddieman, have ANY Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar???!!! Eliminating financial corruption in the Muddle East ESPECIALLY with Iran AND IN Iraq will pave the way for the greatest surge in Whirled Wide economic trade and beneficial growth for humanity EVENTUALLY including ALL Africa WITH a reinstated Bicraqi Iraqi Dinar.
