Parliamentary direction to gradually restore the dollar exchange rate

24th October, 2022

A number of members of the Iraqi Council of Representatives demanded the inclusion of the voting paragraph on restoring the exchange rate of the US dollar against the Iraqi dinar to its previous official rate

A member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, Hamid Al-Shiblawi, said, according to an official document obtained by Shafak News Agency, entitled “Reducing the dollar exchange rate”, that “due to the repercussions of the rise in the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar, which negatively affected the economic situation of the Iraqi family, which burdened the citizen.”


Especially those with low incomes. We, members of the attached list, ask the Presidency of the House of Representatives to include a paragraph to reduce the dollar exchange rate and gradually return it to the previous exchange rate within the work schedule of the next session in the public interest.

The list showed the signatures of 40 deputies so far. 

It is noteworthy that the Central Bank of Iraq, on December 19, 2020, officially announced the amendment of the foreign currency exchange rate (the US dollar) to be 1450 dinars, instead of 1200 dinars, for every 100 dollars, according to the state’s general budget for the year 2021 approved by the House of Representatives. .

As a result, according to specialists, the annual inflation in Iraq has risen significantly, so that all prices of materials and goods in the Iraqi market have risen significantly, which has sparked a wave of strong resentment among the popular circles, as well as the objections of some interested in economic affairs.


Ihsan Al-Shammari: The Sudanese government will be devoid of independents and will be consensual between the parties

24th October, 2022


Head of the Center for Political Thinking, Ihsan Al-Shammari, confirmed: “The government of Muhammad Al-Sudani will be devoid of independent ministers and will be consensual between the parties.”

Al-Shammari said in a statement to the National Iraqi News Agency ( NINA ): “Al-Sudani will choose from the lists of names of candidates for the parties, personalities for the ministries according to special criteria that can implement his government program,” pointing out: “Independents and technocrats are all slogans that were in the formation of previous governments because the ministers were of the political parties.

He explained that: “There is currently a scramble and competition between political parties over ministries and their monopoly, and this matter ends after the formation of the government, so that the Prime Minister-designate faces internal challenges, most notably services, unemployment, uncontrolled arms, corruption, poverty, economic, security, and external aspects and his relations with countries, most notably the balance that he must leave, because the world sees Iraq as an important country and it must take its part,” he said.

He pointed out: “The biggest challenge for the Sudanese government is to implement a government program that meets the aspirations of the Sadrist street and with more than half of its demands. Otherwise, the Sudanese will be angry in front of the Sadrist Street.”

Al-Shammari continued: “The Sudanese must also deal with the emerging parties and the Octoberists and their demands in a different form and vision from the previous one.”    LINK

Like I said.. The street wants their constitutional entitlements… They are not even quiet about it. There is talk of politicians in the Green Zone being extricated out if there is not sufficient reforms.. Extradition out of the Green Zone, is likely not something anyone would want. Might be deserved though.. ~ imo ~ MM

They CBI Governor and the Finance Minister hosted a meeting on the exchange rate change. The call to get 50 signatures for reduce the exchange rate back to an official rate have been collected. The exchange rate change is on the table within days apparently.. It is the Governments job to issue currency and it is the CBIs job to issue an exchange rate with the approval of the Finance Ministry…. The amount of data out today on this matter is awesome.. imo ~ I like it.. ~ MM



Article 110

The federal government shall have exclusive authorities in the following matters:

First. Formulating foreign policy and diplomatic representation; negotiating, signing, and ratifying international treaties and agreements; negotiating, signing, and ratifying debt policies and formulating foreign sovereign economic and trade policy.

Second. Formulating and executing national security policy, including establishing and managing armed forces to secure the protection and guarantee the security of Iraq’s borders and to defend Iraq.

Third. Formulating fiscal and customs policy; issuing currency; regulating commercial policy across regional and governorate boundaries in Iraq; drawing up the national budget of the State; formulating monetary policy; and establishing and administering a central bank.

Fourth. Regulating standards, weights, and measures.


In addition… Look at the amounts of assets Iraq has. Not to mention the new electronic system in place is returning 100s of billions of dinars…  All of this supports massive value for the exchange rate change success.. imo ~ MM

Will the price of the dinar change against the dollar?

24th October, 2022
Today, with the political changes, the theory of restoring the exchange rate of the dinar against the dollar has come to mind, and is there a possibility of restoring the exchange rate.

 “Despite the fact that the issue of raising the price of the dinar against the dollar is a popular demand as a result of its connection to high rates of inflation, although the price change was not the only factor in increasing inflation, now the public will put strong pressure on the political parties that have long called for the necessity of raising the price of the dinar against the dollar and returning to the price the old.


MilitiaMan » October 24th, 2022


See what I mean. We can all see that returning to the old price is the same as the past official exchange rate. They printed new money in 2018, they imo have distributed new money to where it will be needed internally and externally and the last part of the reforms is to seat the government cabinet so that there is legitimacy to the new government whereby, they can “issue” the new money on the books imo.. There is a difference between distribution and issuance. The latter part is where the exchange rate gets applied. imo. ~ MM

The Lebanese Central Bank stops buying dollars through its own platform 

23rd October, 2022

The Central Bank of Lebanon announced, on Sunday, that it will stop buying dollars through its own platform (exchange) from Tuesday, until further notice.

A statement issued by the Governor of the Banque du Liban, Riad Salameh, and published by the National News Agency, added that he will continue to pay public sector pensions in US dollars, noting that “withdrawals of the 400 dollars will continue to holders of bank accounts.” 

Salameh’s decision, after the Lebanese pound hit its lowest level against the dollar in the parallel market, comes at a time when the political crisis in the country is deepening, which prevents reaching any reforms capable of extricating it from the chronic economic collapse. The dollar is sold in the parallel market for about 40,000 pounds. 

Since the fall of 2019, Lebanese banks have imposed strict restrictions on deposit withdrawals, which have increased little by little, until it has become almost impossible for depositors to dispose of their money, especially those deposited in US dollars, or transfer it abroad.

Since the summer of 2019, the lira has lost nearly 95 percent of its value against the dollar, while the official exchange rate is still fixed at 1507 liras. This coincides with a severe liquidity crisis, and banks have stopped providing depositors with their money in dollars. Banks and money transfer companies have different exchange rates.


The prolonged economic crisis is considered the worst in Lebanon’s history. It is accompanied by political paralysis that prevents taking reform steps that limit the deterioration and improve the quality of life of the population, more than eighty percent of whom live below the poverty line.   LINK

In Karbala.. they sell a bank building and the amount disappears.. and the manager rents a building for him for 80 million annually

24th October, 2022

Sources, 10-24-2022, who are familiar with the agendas of the local government in Karbala, revealed the sale of a bank building in Karbala, so that the bank settled in a rented office.

Message text.

Influential parties sold a bank building in Karbala, while the amount of the deal (7 billion dinars) is not known where his fate is.

In a clear fraud, a new building for the bank was not purchased, and instead a building was rented at a cost of 80 million annually, without the expenses of its rehabilitation and the purposes of the bank. This is a disaster. 

Where is the integrity and public prosecution of this obvious theft?  LINK

Because of the weather and the Ukraine crisis, the price of a barrel of oil is expected to reach $120

24th October, 2022

The economic expert and specialist in the field of energy, Bilal Al-Khalifa, said that wars and political crises, especially the Russian-Ukrainian war, and the events that accompanied that crisis portend further military escalation, representing a main factor for the rise in oil prices during the coming periods, indicating that targeting the gas pipeline “Al-Noord” Stream” represents another main factor for the occurrence of spikes in oil prices, especially with the entry of the “old continent” into the winter season and its growing needs for fuel

Al-Khalifa explained, “OPEC Plus production is usually very influential in the price of a barrel of oil, and we have seen during the days of the Corona pandemic crisis how it dealt with the significant drop in the price of oil by reducing production that revived the oil market,” noting that “the recent OPEC + decision It represents a clear indication of another rise in oil prices during the winter periods,” according to the official “Al-Sabah” newspaper

Al-Khalifa suggested, “The current selling prices of oil will be increased by about five dollars, and therefore the price will range between 90-100 dollars, but in the event of storms and hurricanes in the places where oil production areas are located, it may rise by two dollars or more for limited days,” expecting that “a rise in the pace of the war between the Russians and NATO will lead to the price of a barrel of oil reaching more than $120 in the coming periods   LINK
