A member of the coordination framework reveals the parties that control private banks

A member of the coordination framework, Ali Al-Fatlawi, revealed the political parties that own private banks and exploit the private banking sector as a front to cover up their corruption.

Al-Fatlawi said that “more than 30% of the Iraqi political parties own two or three banks that they use to pass and classify money and cover up corruption and major theft.”

He added, “There are people linked to external parties belonging to political parties who are working to demolish the Iraqi economy and destroy the value of the currency, and this is done with external guidance,” noting that “these parties are Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish, so everyone is involved in this looting process.”

He continued, “A certain company has no competitor and is monopolizing the electronic payment market, and this confirms the dominance of a large and influential political party over the company and the prevention of any competitor, since the issue is related to citizen theft.   link

The coordinating framework reveals what is hidden in its negotiations with the Kurdish forces: bargains over oil and gas

A member of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Ayed Al-Hilali, confirmed that the Kurdish parties bargained over the amendment of the oil and gas law in exchange for agreeing on a compromise candidate for the post of President of the Republic. 

Al-Hilali said in a press interview, “During the meetings, there were several bargains with the coordination framework, including an amendment to the oil and gas law to allow the region to continue to export its oil away from the center.”  

He added, “The coordination framework was clear during the meetings that were held in order to work to end the political blockage, that the Federal Supreme Court is the facilitator and responsible for the Iraqi oil and gas export file.” 

He continued, “The two Kurdish parties did not put forward any initiative with the rest of the political blocs in order to reach radical solutions to end the political blockage.” link

The budget and food security allocations are behind the resignation of Ali Allawi

Analyzes believe that the delay in approving the 2022 budget, caused the resignation of Finance Minister Ali Allawi, without warning.

The minister’s resignation was a shock to the political circles, especially since he had not previously indicated his intention to resign from the position.

The political differences left by the recent elections hindered the formation of the new government, at a time when laws prevented caretaker governments from sending legislation to Parliament for approval, which kept the fate of the budget law unknown.

And Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi said during the cabinet session that a government cannot live without a budget, two years have passed without a budget, which some considered to be proof that Allawi resigned because of the budget.

Private sources say to the Obelisk, Minister Allawi is discontented with the impact of political conflicts on the government’s work and its inability to implement any financial reform because of that, as well as the lack of legislation for the country’s general budget so far, despite the passage of 8 months since the beginning of the year due to political conflicts.

It did not take practical steps to implement the economic reform paper known as the White Paper because of the political rivalry.

On the other hand, the resignation comes days after the food security law was disbursed.

Ali Allawi, for his part, objected to the launch of the law’s assignments, which may be the reason for his resignation from the position.

At a time when the followers of the Sadrist movement are holding a sit-in in the Green Zone, disrupting Parliament, which means that the allocations of the Food Security Law are not secured due to the absence of a parliament that is held accountable and follows up on the disbursement of allocations.

The fact that Iraq remains without a financial budget is quickly reflected in revenues, as the delay in approving the budget causes wastage of public money, and a lack of revenues due to the failure to implement the government’s financial plan represented by the budget, which will necessarily include measures to maximize financial resources and achieve maximum revenues. According to the experts.

As for the other harm, it is the expenses that are always planned according to the revenues, and since the imbalance and shortage of revenues will inevitably occur, this will have a definite reflection on the expenses, and the lack of revenues will lead to the reduction of the projects planned by the government according to the citizens’ priorities and needs.

The expert in economic affairs, Abdul Hassan Al-Shammari, says that this delay will hit the investment sector, and will contribute to the spread of unemployment among young people, and will even raise poverty indicators to higher levels.

Economist Ahmed Abu Abatin warned that this delay will have serious repercussions, as it necessarily leads to delays in the completion of planned projects.

Twitter activist Rasha Al-Ezzo said that the delay in sending the draft budget also results in the delay in sending the final statements of the 2021 budget, which the government is supposed to send as soon as it finishes sending the 2022 draft budget to Parliament.   link

A statement from the Minister of Al-Sadr regarding the outcomes of the dialogue session… Thank you to the Prime Minister

Saleh Muhammad al-Iraqi, known as the “minister” of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, on Thursday, thanked Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, against the background of his adoption of a dialogue session, noting that the session does not fatten or sing from hunger.  

Al-Iraqi said in a statement, of which “Nass” received a copy, (August 18, 2022), that “a dialogue session graciously adopted by the Prime Minister, but the dialogue session resulted in only some points that are not fattening and do not sing from hunger, which have nothing to do with the people. .nor what concerns his service, his dignity, nor his aspirations.”  

He added, “Yes, most of the attendees are only interested in remaining in the chair… Therefore, they tried to minimize the revolution and stay away from its demands. Yes, the revolution does not want people like you to do anything but to step down from a chair on which you unjustly imposed your presence.”  

Al-Iraqi continued, “Indeed, most of his concern was to form a government according to the goals of some, in order to increase their simplicity and the rooting of their deep state, so that they would control the fate of a people who rejected their presence, so they rigged the elections and made them fit.”  

He pointed out that “it is striking that one of them went to (the sisterly Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) a few hours after the end of the dialogue session, and if we were the perpetrators, they would have said: The dialogue session was under pressure from outside and notice from the normalizers and the Americans and the like.”  

Al-Iraqi pointed out, “In general, your secret session does not concern us with anything… However, I wanted to say: Do not increase the people’s anger against you, and do not do anything that increases the people’s fear of the democratic process that you are sewing according to your measure.”  

He said: “I advise if you want to fill (the empty chair), your meeting should be public and broadcast live in front of the people to see what is going on behind the scenes of conspiracies, intrigues and leaks that no one has condemned so far – with great regret -“.  

And he wondered, “Otherwise, what will the people benefit from closed and secret sessions in which their legitimate desires are not taken into account in achieving the security and safety that you took from them when you sold a third of Iraq and in providing a decent living that you smuggled abroad to bring in weapons and drugs for the people to use, so you live in peace on ostrich feathers and under the cooling air from which they were denied? An entire people.”  

He stressed by saying: “No, it is a people who kneel only to God..and there is no good in your dialogue except those from whom we received news from within the meeting that he was somewhat positive with his people, but he may be one of the helpless.”  

Al-Iraqi added, “How long will the camel remain on its ivory tower and its abhorrent bourgeois behavior that ignores the suffering of the people and disposes of its money and rights without judicial or international deterrence?”  

And he addressed by saying: “Oh people of Iraq, do not be deceived by their dialogue, for it is easier than a spider’s web, and their survival will not be long if your revolution is prolonged.. God is the Guardian of success.”  

The (Iraqi National Dialogue) meeting, which was held in the presence of the presidencies with leaders of the political forces at the invitation of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, came out, today, Wednesday, with five recommendations.  

According to a statement by the Prime Minister’s Media Office, which “Nass” received a copy of (August 17, 2022), “the meeting led to a number of points, agreed upon by the attendees, represented by the following:”    

1 The participants expressed their commitment to the national constants, and to finding a solution to all crises through dialogue and adopting a spirit of brotherhood and synergy; In order to preserve the unity of Iraq and the security and stability of its people, and the permanence of the constitutional democratic system to which everyone appeals, emphasizing the supremacy of the supreme national interests, and showing a spirit of solidarity among the people of the one nation; to address the current political crisis.    

2- The conferees indicated that resorting to the polls once again through early elections is not an exceptional event in the history of democratic experiences when political crises reach dead ends, and that national political forces resort to constitutional tracks in elections.    

3- The conferees called on the brothers in the Sadrist movement to engage in the national dialogue, to put in place mechanisms for a comprehensive solution to serve the aspirations of the Iraqi people and achieve their goals.    

4- The participants agreed on the continuation of the national dialogue; In order to develop a legal and constitutional road map to address the current crisis.    

5- The conferees called for stopping all forms of field, media, or political escalation, stressing the need to protect state institutions and return to calm discussions away from provocations and provocations that would provoke strife. They appealed to the media and elites to support the path of national dialogue and social peace, to serve the interests of our people,” according to the statement. link
