Parliament adjourns its session until further notice


31st May, 2022

The House of Representatives has adjourned its session, which was held today, to further notice.

The second deputy chairman of the council, Shakhwan Abdullah, chaired the session before it was adjourned.

In today’s session, the Parliamentary Finance Committee completed reading and discussing the report of the proposed emergency support law for food security and development.  LINK

MilitiaMan » June 1st, 2022

Was there other laws on the table in the meeting yesterday outside of the Emergency Security for Food Law? Amendments to the Natural Resources, Oil and Gas Law? They don’t say.

In addition, today they are discussing the cooperation with the judicial authorities in enacting important laws. They again don’t say which ones.


However, we see this from Sadr’s group below. My view is they tell us clearly what is on the table. The ration card in it’s entirety is the food law, the electric it their life blood A/C and Fuel (energy) is the Natural Resource, Oil & Gas Law (NGO) or commonly the HCL..

If that is the case, there is good reason to hide those sensitive issues. At least for the short sensitive time that is before them..

The words “enacting and implementation” are synonymous. Just as the EFL and 2022 Budgets are.. Throw in the energy card and we have some serious on goings. I like what we are seeing.. ~ MM

For his part, a source in the “Save a Homeland” coalition told Shafaq News Agency, “The law of emergency support for food security will be passed and all members of Parliament will vote on it, and it will find its way to implementation without interfering with any party, as it is concerned with securing food in addition to supporting energy fields and service and development projects.”

The source, who asked not to be named, added that “after the law is passed, a breakthrough will occur in the entire political scene, including accelerating the process of forming the government, since the implementation of the details of the food security law will positively affect all areas that affect the citizen (the ration card in its entirety, 11 articles, electricity, fuel)

1st June, 2022

MP from the State of Law coalition, Alia Nassif, said on Wednesday that if the election of the president of the republic and the formation of the government are not completed, “we must go to the option of dissolving parliament.”

Nassif added in an interview with the official “Al-Sabah” newspaper, which was followed by “Mawazine News”, that “the continuation of the current situation means the continuation of the caretaker government, deficient in powers restricted and governed by the decision of the Federal Court and an internal system, and criticizing any action it takes, so if this obstruction remains, let us go to dissolution of Parliament.


And she continued, “There is a call before the Federal Court to challenge the legitimacy of the House of Representatives and call for its dissolution because it violated the decisions of the Federal Court or that it was unable to complete the vote on the President of the Republic in order to end the government’s work and choose a new government.”   LINK

Zeeman » June 1st, 2022

A New Political Proposal To Hold A Popular Referendum On The Dissolution Of Parliament

1st June, 2022

The prominent Iraqi politician Nadim Al-Jabri confirmed, on Wednesday, the possibility of the Federal Supreme Court resorting to a popular referendum to dissolve the House of Representatives, indicating that this step will depend on the court’s interpretation that the people are the source of all authorities and have the right to self-determination.

Al-Jabri said in a statement to “The Information”, that “the invitations made by some parties to the Federal Supreme Court to dissolve the House of Representatives are obligatory, and the results will be announced soon.”

He added, “The court may reject these demands due to its lack of direct jurisdiction in the decision to dissolve the House of Representatives, which is the largest and most important legislative authority in the country, or to go to the popular path.”

Al-Jabri explained, “The interpretation of the constitution indicates that the people are the source of powers, and the court may interpret that paragraph and call for a popular referendum to decide the fate of Parliament and the people’s representatives across the same street.”   LINK

The United States Fears The Consequences Of Confiscating Russian Assets

1st June, 2022

A media report indicated that the US authorities feared the confiscation of the frozen Russian assets of the Central Bank.

According to the report published by the New York Times, the United States fears this process, which may lead to undermining its position as a reliable investment partner in the eyes of other countries.

The report added that discussions about withdrawing the assets of the Russian Central Bank “met resistance in the United States” due to the legal and reputational implications the country could face in such a scenario. “Senior officials in the Joe Biden administration have warned that withdrawing these funds may be illegal and prevent other countries from relying more on the United States as a country to make investments,” the report stated.

According to the newspaper, unlike many European countries that openly advocate the use of frozen Russian assets to provide financial assistance to Ukraine, the United States is “more cautious” in this regard. The newspaper added that US officials tend to believe that the confiscation of Russian assets may encourage central banks in other countries to redirect their dollar assets to other currencies.


In a recent speech, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said she did not know if the frozen assets of the Russian Central Bank could be redirected to help Ukraine. The US authorities have repeatedly confirmed that they have not yet taken a decision on this issue.

Western countries imposed new sanctions on Moscow after the start of a special operation by the Russian army to disarm Ukraine. Therefore, Russian reserves are frozen at about $300 billion in a number of countries, and as part of the sanctions policy, decisions are also taken to freeze the assets and real estate of Russian businessmen.

Earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba had asked the G7 countries to pass laws allowing them to confiscate Russian assets and transfer them to Kyiv.  LINK

The Director-General of the authority, Shaker Mahmoud Hussein, said, in a statement that {Etlfrat News} received a copy of it, that “the representative Al-Salami referred, in a televised statement, to Cabinet Resolution No. 106 of 2018 regarding obligating the relevant government agencies to adopt electronic documents in their transactions related to commercial exchange at the outlets. borders and archiving those transactions according to an electronic system and within a time limit.”

He added, “We refer in this regard to Resolution 183 of 2020, which includes authorizing the Minister of Finance to negotiate and contract with UNCTAD to automate customs work and to cancel all previous decisions on the subject of automation, noting that the authority has begun work in the first phase of the electronic automation system (AYSCUDA), and that the authority is committed to implementing decisions Council of Ministers”.


Hussein continued, “The authority is proceeding with the issue of automating customs procedures by working on electronic systems at its headquarters and customs centers until the completion of the electronic automation system (AYSCUDA) and with personal efforts by the authority’s management, namely: (the modern statistical system, and the customs revenue system at the authority’s headquarters).

And customs centers, the system for archiving electronic permits in customs centers, the customs, tax and electronic access system, in addition to the exemptions system for the departments of development and investment.

Hussein explained, “It was mentioned in the deputy’s letter that the Prime Minister asked the Prime Minister to withdraw the hand for us due to the failure to implement Cabinet Resolution No. 106 of 2018, which is a canceled decision, as we mentioned above with Resolution 183 of 2020, and it is contrary to the text of Article 17 of the State Employees Law of 1991, pointing out,

He noted that “the new administration has received tasks and has heavy accumulations in front of it, as a large part of these accumulations have been changed for both the administrative, technical and infrastructure sides, and work is still continuing to address these accumulations, and there are many previous decisions that have not been implemented and we have started implementing them,” indicating that the authority is now going through the best its cases and its greatest achievements during the reign of Minister Ali Abdul-Amir Allawi,”

Noting that:”the authority will achieve a qualitative leap in the issue of the great welcome yard with the Ports Company in the Ministry of Transport to automate seaports and customs.” LINK

MilitiaMan » June 1st, 2022

The bottom line is they are automating the borders and expect a qualitative leap in the level of automation they have ever had.. imo.. A Very welcome and timely development to say the least. The have started what appears to be the final touches or accumulations as they say. With the amount of products to ensue in pouring into the country, I can imagine the accumulations will be massive.. While that is on going they are to make sure that only those authorized to be in the facility are authorized and not to allow filming or personnel, a safety issue. No corruption allowed in or out. .. imo ~ MM

TIVON » June 1st, 2022


100 countries to my knowledge are using Asycuda ++ for facilitating merchandise trade as well as providing national and regional trade statistics. These are Burundi, Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda, Sudan, Madagascar, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Iraq in this regard would be number 101.

They say the project will build a single window for international trade to facilitate compliance with import and export requirements. So I guess we have some obstructing parties that are a bit nervous as to the oversight from financial institutions that have provisions in place that will reduce corruption in certain committees that see their gravy train coming to a screeching halt.

It will also speed up customs clearance through the computerization and simplification of procedures, minimizing administrative costs to the business community and the Iraqi economy. We are in a great position. This is very timely as MM would say.

These next few days should reveal a lot. This project would greatly bolster the implementation of economic reforms as well. This will give the Iraqi government so much confidence to execute other plans that have been sitting on the back burner. No wonder we have some nervous sweaty hands looking to disrupt this plan.

Because of course this will play into the purchasing power of the citizens. Once this system is fully implemented and integrated. To be honest I wonder if this is really already done?

 I think these articles act as official disclosure. Because knowing Iraq has antagonist on an international scale. I doubt this report would come out in the sensitive stages of development where it can be disrupted enough to delay indefinitely all stages of development due to many factors.

Because the coincidence of this article along with the “Food Security Law” being days away from being implemented should not go unnoticed.   IMO 

Re: Earlier MilitiaMan Post today:  LINK  

Militia-Man, if you care to elucidate any further as to the role the Ration Card plays in the “Purchasing Power” that will be a result of the reinstatement or Oil & Gas Law in terms of electricity sector. I want to bring up some points regarding this.

 We know in the past back in 2012 the Iraqi Cabinet wanted to abolish the ration card. Which the government gives out household staples to the populace. The scrapping of the social welfare plan, which is over 20 years old, was seen as an important step toward economic development in the private sector. I presume they stated this because monthly checks from the government does not create jobs or help develop communities.

We see the results from that in America. The Ration Card system was introduced to Iraq by the regime of former leader Saddam Hussein. A form of social welfare, the national food assistance programme began in the early 1990s after sanctions were imposed on Iraq following the country’s invasion of Kuwait. It allowed card holders to claim a variety of household staples.

Which is why I expect that the enactment of laws are done independently of the formation of the government as they stated a couple of days ago that includes the HCL.

Since the US-led invasion of Iraq that toppled Hussein’s government in 2003, the Ration Card system has failed dramatically, plagued by inefficiency, widespread corruption and security issues. The long process of getting flour, rice, sugar, cooking oil, baby milk and other relevant staples from government warehouses into the hands of citizens as well the poor quality of the distributed items has made the Ration Card system more of a burden than a saviour.

So in terms of electricity we know there’s a gas debt to Iran that needs to be paid that was partly paid some days ago. Fuel? Well I’m thinking this will be the Oil & Gas Law settlement. They have kept this under close guard. 

So where we stand today in 2022 with Citizen Entitlements, Oil & Gas Law, Food Security Law, Gold Reserves, Taxes & Tariffs, Agriculture, Import/Exports. All of which is supposed to benefit the citizens to lift them out of poverty given the monthly stimulus from the HCL, I assume they will have a short life span of using the Ration Card as a dependent upon social services since the card is only limited to basic essential items.

How or what other method of financial means will they be able to purchase things that the Ration Card can not grant them access to? Cars, furniture, clothing, etc. Because alot of emphasis has been put onto these cards where it is a bit concerning.

We want them to have a strong currency. Not a Ration Card as a primary source of income. That’s why in 2010 the International Monetary Fund in February 2010 described the system as ‘an inefficient generalised benefit that distorts private sector activity’.” Is the Energy Card the Ration Card? If so I guess this implies the HCL?  IMO

MilitiaMan » June 1st, 2022

The ration card, as a digitized card may be more efficient and specific to items directly. They’ll not be able to use for unsupported items. As you point out the system was seen and known to be antiquated and a drag on the system with it’s inefficiencies.

This new emergency security food law being synonomous with the budget, may very well be the conduit to the 2022 budget powered by the HCL.

Yes, I do believe the HCL is done, the Food Law is done and even it may be possible that the gov is done as well. As they had a quorum yesterday with 250 seats showing up. Voted, then adjourned.

The CF capitulated and is wanting to be involved now and then we see the laws are called to be enacted which they still have not completely told us which ones.. But, as I wrote and showed earlier the day before they did. Ration, energy, fuel, etc… ~ MM
