Al-Sadr: The victory of reform is a victory for Iraq


Recommended Posts

Sadr reminds me of the child's game with a ball and jacks. While the ball is thrown up into the air and your focus is on the ball, his other hand comes in and quickly swipes the jacks up. Well gawlee Sawgent! All politicians remind me of that game.

 The leader of the Sadrist movement pledged that "from now on, the government or the parties will not have control over the money and bounties, but rather it is for the people, and the people's oil is for the people, and we will work to raise the level of the Iraqi dinar to be in the ranks of global currencies gradually."

 

".....and we will work to raise the level of the Iraqi dinar to be in the ranks of global currencies gradually."

 

Gradually?????  Oh no!  It's already taken too many years.

How many more years does "gradually" mean? 

Was idiot Kaperoni right about the float all along?  I hope not!

MomIdiot Kapperoni ... float ... right all along . Sir Adam has also said it could be a Managed Float . Where it would come out as a given rate , and then managed upward from there from a world economic response to a internationally traded IQD. With the final  say being what the GOI/CBI say, and when they say it . Suggesting a straight market float was never in the cards .

Well, that's better.  At least if it comes out low, say 10 cents, we could sell some and hold on to the rest, if they let us.

I would like to get my initial investment out, if possible.

raise the level of the Iraqi dinar ", i like the sound of that. but, i just feel something is fishy going on here. why would Sadrist say something like that to the publics? doesn't anybody think that people will buy up more dinars if the dinar will rv? will Sadrist say something like that to the publics because he wants to win the election and become a new PM very desperately?

Shafaq News/ The Sadrist movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr commented today, Wednesday, on the movement of a number of political forces to form a "larger bloc" to confront it and withdraw the parliamentary majority from it, at a time when the State of Law coalition led by Nuri al-Maliki spoke about this "bloc" that will form the new government.

 

The leader of the Sadrist movement, Issam Hussein, told Shafaq News Agency, "The movement of some political forces to form the largest bloc to confront the Sadrist bloc, are attempts to pressure the movement, as it obtained the parliamentary majority to submit to a project similar to the project that built the 2010 government."

 

Hussein indicated that "this same project that took over the government of Adel Abdul-Mahdi and what happened from the demonstrations, and this same project is trying to gather some of the diaspora blocs that got very few parliamentary seats, as an attempt to find a political opportunity for them in the next stage."

 

The leader of the Sadrist movement added, "This movement will not affect the majority of the Sadrist bloc," explaining that "the constitution gave the bloc the right to form the next government, being the one with the highest number of seats in the early parliamentary elections."

 

For his part, a leader in the State of Law coalition revealed the bloc that will form the new Iraqi government, during the coming period.

 

Muhammad Al-Sihoud told Shafaq News Agency, "The largest bloc will be formed in the first parliament session, which is political forces allied with each other," explaining that "this was confirmed by the Iraqi constitution and clearly explained by the Federal Supreme Court."

 

And Chihod said, "So far, there are no agreements on forming political alliances for the purpose of forming the largest bloc, but there are understandings and convergence of views between a number of political forces from different components, and the formation of alliances may be after the final election results are resolved."

 

The Iraqi constitution of 2005 granted the right to form a government to the most numerous parliamentary bloc, as Clause (First) of Article 76 of it states the following: “The President of the Republic assigns the candidate of the most numerous parliamentary bloc to form the Council of Ministers within 15 days from the date of the election of the President of the Republic,” but opinions It is still divided so far over the concept of "the most numerous parliamentary bloc", does it mean the winner of the elections, or the one that is formed within Parliament by two or more coalitions after the results are announced?

 

The Federal Supreme Court explained this concept in its decision issued in No. 25/Federal/2010 on March 25, 2010 saying, “The expression of the most numerous parliamentary bloc means: Either the bloc that was formed after the elections through a single electoral list, entered the elections with a specific name and number and won On the largest number of seats, or the bloc that gathered from two or more electoral lists that entered the elections with different names and numbers, and then coalesced into one bloc with one entity in the House of Representatives, whichever is more numerous, the President of the Republic assigns the candidate of the parliamentary bloc whose seats have become The parliament in the first session of the House of Representatives is more numerous than the other bloc or blocs, by forming the Council of Ministers based on the provisions of Article 76 of the Constitution.

 

As a result of this interpretation, the rug was pulled from under former Prime Minister Iyad Allawi, the leader of the Iraqi List in the second round of government formation elections in 2010, although his list had won 92 seats at the time, and former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki - whose list got the "Coalition of the State of Law". On 89 seats - from its formation after its alliance with various powers.

Hmm, yeah . You also have a float at a higher rate when you reduce the amount of physical notes out there, in circulation . You can keep em in reserve, or just no replace them, so long as they are not in circulation , for a sustainable future higher rate.  Bottomline float, no float, managed float, is all up to GOI/CBI .

Iraq election: Nationalist cleric Moqtada al-Sadr claims victory

Supporters of Moqtada al-Sadr's Saeroun movement celebrated in Baghdad on Monday night

Shia Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr has claimed victory for his nationalist Saeroun movement in Iraq's election.

Mr Sadr, who wants to end US and Iranian influence over Iraq's internal affairs, promised to form a government free from foreign interference.

Partial results showed Saeroun winning 73 of the 329 seats in parliament and Sunni Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi's Taqaddum coalition second with 38.

The pro-Iranian Fatah alliance suffered a surprise setback, getting only 14.

It is likely to take many weeks of negotiations to build a new governing coalition, which Mr Sadr cannot lead because he did not stand as a candidate.

But the record low official turnout of 41% suggests many Iraqis do not believe that there will be any real change to the power-sharing system, based on sectarian and ethnic identity, that has allowed a narrow elite to keep a firm grip on power since the US-led invasion in 2003.

Sunday's election was the first since mass protests over government corruption, high unemployment and dire public services erupted in 2019.

The poll had been due next year but was brought forward by six months in response to the unrest, during which more than 550 demonstrators were killed by security forces and gunmen suspected of links to powerful Iran-backed Shia militias in the paramilitary Popular Mobilisation force.

The old electoral system was also replaced with one meant to make it easier for independent candidates to challenge established parties.

(December 2019) Iraq ends year in political turmoil

Initial results released on Monday night showed that Saeroun won 19 more seats than it did in the last election in 2018, the state-owned Iraq News Agency (INA) reported.

Mr Sadr hailed the results as a victory for reform and for Iraq.

"It is the day of the victory of reform over corruption. The day of the people's victory over occupation, normalisation, militias, poverty, injustice and enslavement," he said in a televised speech.

"It is a day when sectarianism, ethnicity and partisanship were defeated. It is the day of Iraq and we are the servants of the Iraqi people."

The cleric warned foreign powers that all embassies would be welcomed "as long as they do not interfere in Iraq's internal affairs and the formation of the government", and that any intervention would be "met with a diplomatic or even a popular response".

Moqtada al-Sadr cannot serve as prime minister because he did not stand in the election

Mr Sadr, 47, is one of the best-known and most powerful figures in Iraq.

A son of the late Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Sadeq al-Sadr, he shot to prominence after the 2003 invasion as a vocal opponent of the foreign occupation and the head of a militia that repeatedly clashed with US forces.

In recent years, he has recast himself as an anti-corruption campaigner and also distanced himself from Iran, vowing that he would "not leave Iraq in its grip".

He has also criticised the Iran-backed militias, which have developed significant political and economic power since helping the Iraqi government defeat the Sunni jihadist group Islamic State in 2017.

Fatah leader Hadi al-Ameri, a militia commander with close ties to the hard-line leadership in Tehran, rejected the election results, which showed the alliance ending up with 34 fewer seats than in the outgoing parliament.

"We will not accept these fabricated results, whatever the price, and we will defend the votes of our candidates and voters with full force," he was quoted as saying by Al-Sumaria TV on Tuesday.
