sandyf @Tebow IMF doesn’t allow a country 2 currencies. What an idiot. Iraq’s currency is the IQD. When time comes they will introduce the lower demons , also IQD, and over time the large 3 zero notes will go into the banks.
The US had large notes, which to this day are legal tender. – This is what comes from those incapable of understanding the documented procedures.
sandyf There is a high probability that Iraq will revalue the monetary unit, known as the dinar, and this is what people want to hear. The problem is that many do not understand the difference between the monetary unit and the currency.
Over the last 20 years many countries have significantly revalued the monetary unit but none have ever significantly revalued the currency.
Ten years ago when Iraq was talking about redenomination they referred to the “Turkey model”. Maybe someone can explain to Tebow how Turkey revalued the Lira.
chattels MAKING SENSE OF IRAQ’S ELECTION
Posted by Iraqi Thoughts | May 17, 2018 |
chattels official results have still not been finalised due to problems with the electronic voting system that was used for the first time, it appears Abadi has come second, behind Sadr and just ahead of the Iran-backed Fatah list.
However, this election was never about who wins the most seats but who can form the biggest coalition. Despite the blow, Abadi still has a chance to maintain the premiership given his acceptability across the sectarian divide and his ability to balance Iraq’s relations with both Iran and the United States.”
chattels Now, Iraqi parties will go through a series of highly unpredictable negotiations to see which leader can gather the most seats in a majority coalition before the first session of parliament to form the government.
This process is complicated in its own right, but Iraqi parties will have to navigate through regional politics too, with Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey all invested in Iraqi politics, as is the United States. This has already started, with both Ambassador Brett McGurk and General Qasim Soleimani reaching out to Iraqi leaders to influence the government formation process.
chattels ” Whatever happens next, Iraq will continue to prove its naysayers wrong and it will continue to surprise us.”
chattels Sajad Jiyad سجاد @SajadJiyad Press conference by @Mu_AlSadr and @Ammar_Alhakeem imminently to (probably) announce their lists joining together as a coalition. They will have roughly 75 seats combined if results are confirmed
chattels Sajad Jiyad سجاد @SajadJiyad While not confirming fully that they are now in a coalition, @Ammar_Alhakeem says Hikma together with @Mu_AlSadr Sairoon will talk to other parties about forming a government. To me that means some sticking points remain but they are on the same side
chattels David M. Witty @DavidMWitty1 In Iraqi election news, after Sadr (Sairoon) & Hakim (Hikma) meet to propose coalition, Iraqi communists (part of Sairoon) object to any alliance with PM Abadi. Say Dawa party too long in power. http://mobp.as/vwHXl

Dinard chattels this whole parliamentary election deal takes a long time. is there any limit they have to chose one by? and by one i mean PM
chattels dinard Yes and no.
chattels 90 days on the first ” offering “.
chattels The process will eventually produce a PM.
dinard chattels wow thats quite a long time. do they have a number of offerings they are allowed to give out? im assuming they have an unlimited amount.
dinard The new Turkish lira (Turkish: Yeni Türk Lirası) was the currency of Turkey and the de facto independent state of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus between 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2008 which was a transition period for the removal of six zeroes from the currency. The new lira was subdivided into 100 new kurush (yeni kuruş). The symbol was YTL and the ISO 4217 code was TRY
Dinard In late December 2003, the Grand National Assembly of Turkey passed a law that allowed for the removal of six zeroes from the currency, and the creation of the new lira. It was introduced on 1 January 2005, replacing the previous lira (which remained valid in circulation until the end of 2005) at a rate of 1 new lira = 1,000,000 old lira.
The official name of the currency is “New Turkish Lira”. According to the Central Bank, the word “new” (yeni) is only a “temporary” measure.
A news agency reported that “new” will be removed on January 1, 2009. The same source also indicated that the banknotes will have “different shapes and sizes to prevent forgery”. The issuance of a new highest denomination, 200 lira, is contemplated at the same time.

chattels Constitutional Requirements ^^^^^^^^^^^

chattels” …………. the President of the Republic will assign another candidate to form the ministry within fifteen days.”

Zig “JoeSchmoe sandyf If you actually “READ” the whole conversation, instead of what ONE person said, you would see that the person Tebow was resonding to said two separate currencies…IQD and IQR. I don’t remember him including you or your statements in his post”…..
Larrykn Sadr meets Hakim to discuss possible governing alliance

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Muqtada al-Sadr, leader of the winning election alliance Sayirun, has met with the prominent Shia leader Ammar al-Hakim, head of the National Hikma (Wisdom) Movement, in Najaf to discuss forming a government.
Both sides say they agree on the need to form a representative government.
“I am thankful to the Iraqi people who voted in the current elections, those who helped reform triumph. [For] even those who abstained from voting, thank you, as they didn’t give their votes to the corrupt,” Sadr told journalists following the meeting.
“God willing, we are looking at a new stage for building in Iraq a democratic, paternal and technocratic government,” Sadr added.
The two leaders have not always been on good terms, according to many sources, with Sadr once saying he would not engage with Hakim politically or share a platform this him prior to the election.
Hakim’s alliance came out as the sixth largest party in the election, even trailing behind the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), with a preliminary result of 22 seats.
Hakim termed the meeting a “valuable opportunity,” where they discussed the election and its results and potential party combinations in government.
“We examined the necessity of forming a government that is national, strong, independent in its political decisions, dependent on the will of the free Iraqi nation, and with a national orientation that transcends components and represents all the sons of the people of Iraq,” Hakim told journalists.
Talk of a possible Sayirun-Hikma alliance marks a good start, Hakim said. Both leaders are open to further talks with any party standing on an anti-corruption, cross-sectarian and cross-ethnic, and pro-reform platform,
Spectra JoeSchmoe Tebow already stated there will be no Two currencies….That’s not worth the reiterating …now this thing about someone needs to teach Tebow about the some one needs to show Tebow the Lira stuff is new….but i say who cares about the Lira ….
Spectra The one person who was going on about two currencies was Dinard….
JoeSchmoe Spectra lol sounds like him
Spectra it was not Tebow so im not sure why sandyf didn’t address dinard?
JoeSchmoe Spectra but when dinard said iqd and iqr, that is what tebow was referring to as two currencies NOT coexisting. Sandy was way off base with his reply
JoeSchmoe or imf not allowing 2 currencies
Spectra right not sure but he should have addressed dinard on the subject…
Spectra i see all Guru’s as just another person …..and not a authority on the dinar.
JoeSchmoe sandy was referring to tebow as being wrong, not tebow. Sandy was trying to say that they will have it, but not listed as 2 separate currenies. Sandy misunderstood
JoeSchmoe thats being nice to him lol so i wont be nice….he didn’t misunderstand, he just needs to get over himself
Spectra JoeSchmoe obviously something was misinterpreted…
JoeSchmoe by sandy
JoeSchmoe Sandyf @Tebow IMF doesn’t allow a country 2 currencies. What an idiot. Iraq’s currency is the IQD. When time comes they will introduce the lower demons , also IQD, and over time the large 3 zero notes will go into the banks. The US had large notes, which to this day are legal tender. – This is what comes from those incapable of understanding the documented procedures.
Zig That was Tebow calling Sandy an idiot…..sandy was quoting…
JoeSchmoe Zig so to be clear….was sandy backing tebow’s statement, or was sandy contradicting it?
Zig Sandy doesn’t separate his quoting others from his own thoughts clearly enough..
JoeSchmoe Zig when sandy said “This is what comes from those incapable of understanding the documented procedures.”, was he agreeing with tebow or putting him down?
Zig Sandy, in that post “This is what comes from those incapable of understanding the documented procedures.”
Zig Saying Tebow does not understand…..and others..
JoeSchmoe Zig so sandy is saying that everything tebow stated is false?
Zig Pretty much….lol
JoeSchmoe the only thing I see that tebow is wrong about is calling dinard an idiot
Tebow Yes I called him an idiot. Sandyf reply ‘- This is what comes from those incapable of understanding the documented procedures.’. Which show nothing but his idiotic opinion. Nothing to back his opinion.
JoeSchmoe everything he said in his post is what we have always believed/known to be true. So sandy is saying that the bulk of belief in dinarland is false….
JoeSchmoe Sandy’s belief makes up maybe 5% of dinarland’s views.
JoeSchmoe Tebow did you see the second part of his post?
Spectra JoeSchmoe well he comes across as not being open to other peoples opinions too…sandyf.. When you do this and act forcibly ..that’s the reaction …
Tebow JoeSchmoe so if we question (don’t believe) him we are incapable of understanding
Zig sandyf: “Tebow: IMF doesn’t allow a country 2 currencies. What an idiot. Iraq’s currency is the IQD. When time comes they will introduce the lower demons , also IQD, and over time the large 3 zero notes will go into the banks. The US had large notes, which to this day are legal tender…………..Sandy’s Reply to Tebow: “This is what comes from those incapable of understanding the documented procedures.”..………End of reply…………..
“sandyf” “There is a high probability that Iraq will revalue the monetary unit, known as the dinar, and this is what people want to hear. The problem is that many do not understand the difference between the monetary unit and the currency.
Over the last 20 years many countries have significantly revalued the monetary unit but none have ever significantly revalued the currency.
Ten years ago when Iraq was talking about redenomination they referred to the “Turkey model”. Maybe someone can explain to Tebow how Turkey revalued the Lira.”
Spectra I am not going to comare a Turkey to a Goose…..lol
JoeSchmoe that is the first time I ever heard anything like what sandy describes above
JoeSchmoe Im no financial genius…or even a financial novice lol. But you would think that his above statement would have been said at some point during my 9 years in this thing.
JoeSchmoe the only thing that I have ever tried to bring in this thing is common sense
Spectra JoeSchmoe common sense goes a long way ….after all we all own it already correct…Did we buy it too listen to someone degrade it …The choice is yours what you take in to your own head…..mine is one of The actual plan from the Dr Shabibi mixed with articles of the removal of the 3 zero’s And the words of the central bank….nothing more …….
JoeSchmoe Spectra and that makes me question the motives of these guy like sandy
Spectra JoeSchmoe ive tghought about that too…
JoeSchmoe when he obviously dodges certain questions that would shut down his theories, or double talk his way around it
Spectra JoeSchmoe but even if his motives are not on our side…How do you prove it?
JoeSchmoe that is their ace in their hole
Spectra JoeSchmoe He said he was made to buy his when he got into a MLM …IF MY MEMORY IS RIGHT…but if this is true…maybe he has disdain for the IQD…
JoeSchmoeso if it’s true how he views on this, he just wants to ‘save’ all of us from making a contiuned mistake? WHAT A GREAT GUY!!!! :laugh common sense people!~
Spectra Anyone who claims to have been pushed to buy it and not agreeably bought it might have this kinda of mindset…I agreeably bought mine ..happily ..bought mine…… 🙂
Spectra JoeSchmoe maybe?
