  5. Abdel-Mahdi apologizes for sending the 2020 budget to parliament by Ali EjamEconomy23 Hours ago Baghdad: A member of the Finance Committee in the House of Representatives confirmed that Iraq will enter in 2020 with a "temporary budget" due to the delay in its dispatch by the current caretaker government due to a procedural legal problem. Committee member Ahmed Al-Saffar said in a press statement: It was hoped that the budget would be sent to Parliament last Thursday, but we were surprised that the Prime Minister apologized for sending it because there was no authority to send any draft law to Parliament, including the budget, because his government is now a caretaker government.

  6. Sectarianism and rivalries crossed .. Middle East: The Tahrir Square protests gave Iraq a new birth The Turkish restaurant or Uhud mountain has turned into an unprecedented symbol of protest movement The current movement has become a cultural revolution even if it fails to achieve a political revolution Baghdad - Agencies: The Middle East Eye website published an article saying that the "Turkish restaurant" - a 14-storey building on the side of Tahrir Square - is a sight worth seeing, and this building occupied by protesters in mid-October has turned into an unprecedented symbol of the protest movement in Iraq. The article written by Fanar Haddad indicated that "the building has become covered with national emblems and Iraqi flags, and a look worth photographing and a recognizable symbol: In Tahrir Square, miniature models from the Turkish restaurant have become memorials for the fallen demonstrators, in addition to that the front of the building is drawn on Shaped keychains and other souvenir pieces. The writer points out that a great debate is taking place on Iraqi social networking sites among the demonstrators, about whether what should go on in Iraq is called a revolution, indicating that, as expected, the debate is between those who are more enthusiastic about the protest on the one hand, and less enthusiastic, or opponents on the other side. Haddad says: After I visited Tahrir Square several times over the past two weeks, I found that there is no doubt: even if the current movement failed to achieve a political revolution, and even if it was not a revolution, it is undoubtedly a revolutionary movement that has so far achieved a cultural revolution . The writer shows that, unlike Al-Khulani Square and Al-Senak Bridge, where violence is more present and the prevailing feeling is the feeling of confrontation. Haddad notes that among the jungle tents in the square you hear everything, from hip-hop to poetry to Shiite condolence readings, and you see what is mentioned because of the Iraqis going to the street at any price, from pictures, murals, memorials, prayer gatherings and other forms of memory. Young people who fell during the past two months of crowd crowd. The writer finds that the flourishing of the expressions presented exceeds its great artistic value, for it is more than just an interesting display or a suitable background for taking selfies. The cultural output of the liberation square and the popular effort to keep the sit-in throughout the square reflects the topography of an emerging political culture far from the Baath period and from the early years after In 2003. Haddad reports that he is beyond the incentives for opposing the regime, because the tendencies of protest cannot be limited to a specific direction or ideology, and while you watch a mural depicting an American dagger that drains Iraq and carries the slogan (America is Righteousness), you hear a repeated recording of a chant saying that Iraq is occupied by Iran, and reflects Tahrir Square is a cross section of political trends, religious convictions, classes and age groups. The writer notes that most of the people in Tahrir Square are young people from poor areas in Baghdad, such as Sadr City, but they reflect the demographic composition of the capital: most of them are youth and most of them are poor. Haddad notes that the tents that do not fill the protest area reflect the diversity of Iraqi society. On any given day, you find everything in the field from civil activity to concerts to tribal marches to religious rituals, the culture of solidarity and the participation of everyone that kept Tahrir Square is in itself an achievement Big. The writer states that the infrastructure of the crowd and charitable services associated with Shiite events, such as Ashura and the forty, were employed to serve the civil movement that intends to occupy the square indefinitely with the aim of imposing a change in the system, and this is more than the active participants or those already in the Tahrir Square. Haddad notes that donation boxes have been allocated in stores all over Baghdad, and Iraqis from all walks of society offer what they can provide to the demonstrators, from blankets to food to money, so that some rich businessmen finance supplies and infrastructure for the protest movement, and beneficiaries have become Corruption and practitioners have a dislike for the negative impact on their interests. The writer says that these protests come at a time widely believed to have crossed the horizon of sectarianism and sectarian competition, and this does not mean that sectarian identity has disappeared. Haddad concludes his article by saying that the people who built the spirit of Tahrir Square, other protest sites, and Iraqis in general, deserve the best.
