Posted On 2021-06-07 By Sotaliraq   Baghdad Now Agency » Alia Nassif congratulates the Iraqi people on the fall of the whale of corruption (former undersecretary of the Ministry of Electricity) in the grip of justice

Representative Alia Nassif warned against the continuation of the subversive role played by the currency auction, indicating that a group of merchants acquires the lion’s share of dollar sales and achieve insane profits at the expense of the Iraqi people, calling on the Governor of the Central Bank to implement a campaign to reform and root out spoilers.

And she said in a statement today: “The rise in dollar prices despite the high sales of the daily auction of the Central Bank is caused by the monopoly of dollar sales by three people who own well-known banks, and these get the largest share of dollar sales in collusion with some corrupt.”

And she indicated: “The sales of the Central Bank, for example, for the period from 4/11 to 6/4/2021 amounted to (6162125) dollars (six billion, one hundred and sixty-two million, one hundred and twenty-five dollars) and for 33 working days (excluding holidays and holidays), and it acquired The three merchants got most of these sales, as the first (who owns three banks) got 850 million dollars out of the six billion sold by the Central Bank, the second (a bank owner) got 264 million dollars, and the third (the owner of a Kurdish bank) got 200 million dollars.

Note that these three controlled the currency auction in the last three months of last year, which preceded the rise in the price of the dollar, because they were aware that it would rise, and thus hit their strike and their banks obtained nearly two billion dollars to resell it after raising its price by the state, meaning that they bought The dollar was for 119 dinars and they sold it for more than 140 dinars.”


Nassif indicated: “Since holding these merchants and employees accomplices with them is almost impossible because they are an octopus that extends even to Parliament, to the point that dismissing a minister or dismissing a government is easier than holding them accountable, the alternative solution is for the governor of the Central Bank to implement a campaign to reform and eradicate the corrupt and stop the wheel of corruption In the currency auction in one way or another, and to stop this attrition that destroyed the Iraqi economy, and if it is not stopped, poverty will increase to reach dangerous levels, knowing that the high price of the dollar serves all the corrupt and burdens the poor.” LINK

A Second Wave Of Price Hikes Amid Calls For Urgent Government Action


Monday 07 June 2021  183 Baghdad: Ali Mowaffaq   The rise in the exchange rate of the dollar again led to a second wave of food price hikes in the wholesale and retail markets in Baghdad, at a time when the Parliamentary Committee on Economy and Investment and an economist called for urgent government intervention to control prices.

Al-Kifah and Al-Harithiya Central Stock Exchange in Baghdad recorded 149,600 dinars, compared to 100 US dollars, while selling prices in money exchange shops in the local markets in Baghdad stabilized at 150 thousand dinars, and purchase prices at 149 thousand dinars per 100 US dollars. Shorja al-Bayaa told “Al-Sabah”: “Most food prices are directly affected by the rise in the price of the dollar in the market, given that these materials come through imports and therefore their bills are paid in dollars.”

The rise of the dollar is not the first of its kind, but it is the highest, compared to the past period, and the markets and commercial centers are almost devoid of shoppers, due to the economic confusion from the new rise in food prices and others.

The rise in the exchange rate of the dollar was strong on them, in light of the weak control over the markets as well. They added to “Al-Sabah” that they were affected by the rise in the dollar price twice, the first by reducing the value of their salaries and the second by the increase in prices in the market, so the concerned government agencies must take the necessary measures to reduce the impact this crisis.

They stressed that the ration materials are not completely disbursed monthly and come intermittently, and therefore this matter affects them, as they are forced to buy some materials from local markets until they are distributed.

The Council of Ministers decided in its last session held last week that the Ministry of Finance allocate an additional amount of (500) One billion dinars to support the ration card allocations, improve its vocabulary and provide it throughout the year, based on the provisions of Article (50 / b) of the General Budget Law 2021.

For his part, the economist Mustafa Ankush called on the government to invest the stores of the Ministry of Trade and secure a strategic balance of foodstuffs through Importing them and providing them in the market in appropriate quantities and at subsidized prices in order to maintain the price level and ensure that they do not rise

He explained to “Al-Sabah”, that “these stores are untapped and most of them are empty and are rented for various purposes,” suggesting that “dollar prices will rise more in the coming days in light of the loss of confidence in the local currency and the increasing demand for buying the dollar.”

He pointed out that “fixing the new price of the dollar in the budget has increased the movement of demand for goods, including foodstuffs, after witnessing a voluntary reduction of purchases by merchants and citizens after fluctuations in prices during the period prior to approving the budget.”

In turn, a member of the Parliamentary Economy and Investment Committee Salem Al-Tufaili believes that “the main reason for the continued rise in the dollar exchange rate is the lack of real government control over the market, as well as the work of private banks and exchanges, which manipulate prices according to their interest without any oversight or accountability,” he says.  LINK
