CharlieOK: It is 5:46 in Baghdad. Someone in the intel chain link has to know one way or the other if the budget was published in the Gazette.
BigPoppy32: People stay calm, It can happen at the very end of their day
Kozmo: Is the Gazette an internet edition or paper??
JCNoble: kozmo I have heard it comes in both forms, paper first.
BeachCindy: kozmo: as Tony tells us, the Gazette is the equivalent of our US Federal Register: laws are passed and considered in effect when published in the Registar…. the Gazette seems to be a function of the Iraqi government
Kozmo: beachcindy. So maybe the Gazette is not in paper distributed to the citizens?
BeachCindy: kozmo: from what Tony has said, it seems the Gazette is available on the internet … I’ve never heard Tony describe as a paper-type newspaper, altho of course I could be wrong … the US govt. passes a law, its printed in the US Federal Register and becomes in effect … same: Iraq passed budget, wen published in Gazette will be considered in effect …. remember the ties Ton
CharlieOK: The tricky Iraqis/ptb might wait until midnight to buy more time before the intel gets out. If no publication today, it is next Wed at the earliest. (Since nothing ever happens early in Iraq, I don’t expect any “special edition” either_.
RVALready: From what I remember of last waiting for a gazette article, it comes out very late. They cannot make mistakes publishing laws.
KMan: If the budget is in the Gazette, why would Iraq keep it a secret?
Annie68: Is today going to be a wash??
JCNoble: annie68 hope not but still not seeing where budget has been published in the law gazette
Jambie67: Once the Central Bank of Iraq changes their numbers, it’s REALLY done/finished/rv on the way: https://cbi.iq/page/101
Selah: Is this what we’re looking for??? https://www.iraqnewsgazette.com/the-president-of-the-republic-approves-the-general-budget/
Teaspot: The Ministry of Justice announced the issuance of the new issue of the Iraqi newspaper Facts with the number (4623), which included a number of laws ratified by the Presidency of the Republic. The director general of the Six Facts Department, Haifa Shukr Mahmoud, said that the issue included the passage of Law No. 14 of 2020, the accession of the Republic of Iraq to the International Loading Lines Convention of 1966 and its amended protocol for 1988 amended in 2003. from https://www.moj.gov.iq/view.5535/
Seleh: Is there any other supposedly more official Gazette than this? if it’s printed in there, then it is published!
Jambie67: We knew that the Iraqi president ratified (approved) the budget this past week and returned it so that the white paper reforms could be implemented and the budget could become law when published in their Gazette (which doesn’t appear to be a daily newspaper but rather a law recording publication). No one has found any telling news for today, April 10, 2021, thus far. We wait. Let’s get out and enjoy our Saturday! Happy days are here again, so be encouraged and joyful!
Selah: I was personally never convinced that the rate was in the budget. I’m pretty sure that all they would need to do is a quick Amendment for what we all want to see. the rate is in the white papers and all the rest that go with that….Now, it’s just a matter of timing. it’s now up to the CBI and whoever pulls their strings.
RVALready: I think we will be at the bank before we see a public announcement from the CBI…. I think they will fly our exchange under the radar as much as possible
USNave55: Sunday is 1st day of Iraqi workweek. Maybe CBI waiting for a fresh week.
CaliforniaSugar: The Official Iraqi Gazette, also called AL-Waqi’A, is published by the Ministry of Finance. You have read from Teapot for translation of what was published. Possibly, budget was included. Yes, we have to wait for CBI.
Jashua: TONY CLEARLY EXPLAINED THAT THE RATE IN THE BUDGET WOULD BE 1450 – … BUT THEN …….. CBI WOULD WHEN THEY CHOOSE CHANGE THE RATE … JUST HOLD ON TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING NEXT…. IT IS ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL GOOD.Tags: tnt /
