Who's the final authority?

Recommended Posts

So I've been wondering.... there's the Iraqi parliament, the house of representative, the cabinet, the PM. Who or what group is the final authority on passing the budget?  What is the structure or hierarchy of the GOI?

 


Each of those entities seem to put out their own statements on issues and each sound as if they are the one that has the final say so on what's going to happen.   I know that it has to be read 2 times then its voted on and something about it being posted in the iraqi gazette. But Who/what group are the ones that make the FINAL vote and make it into Law?


Anybody?

Yeah I know the CBI has the say so on the rate change but I'm talking about the budget and HCL.

the parliament has to pass by 2/3 majority vote and Jubouri has changed the voting structure so that the 2/3 majority is determined by  how many are in attendance, not the total amount of ministers elected (last elections).  then massum has to sign off on it, but there are articles stating that he already has a "standing" acceptance/signature on the budget, dating back to enact the budget retroactively, to Jan 1 2015

 

it's coming up for a second reading..if there's amendments to be made, the parliament will do it and then, from all I can tell, those amendments/if any, have to go back again to the COM , then it goes back to parliament  for a third vote (again, all this depends on changes - if any)

The Council of Ministers is the executive branch headed by Prime Minister, and the Council of Representatives is the legislative branch, like our Congress.

The legislative branch creates and passes laws and the executive branch, the pm along with the council of ministers have to ratify them.

      I really thought (should be read here as "hoped") that we would see $3.22 by March (3) 22, 2016 [which is today, by the way].
      Alas, we do not see this rate on this date. Maybe we'll see it someday soon. Haha. Soon...
      So yeah, with that being said. Who wants to go over to Iraq and tell those lazy camel-hoarders to step up their game and get on with revaluing the IQD to its rightful exchange rate against the US dollar so we can all get our early retirements? All in, say "aye"!
      TQ out.

      Looking at everything and just reading people's opinions throughout the release of articles, I'm just not seeing anything good coming out of Abadi and the new government. I don't feel like it does anything to influence the likelihood of any kind of "revaluation" of the dinar.
      Neg me if you will, it's just my opinion; I just feel like lately this is just looking like it's fading into obscurity and the people behind this have all long done made their money while we persevere hoping for a miracle.
