OOTW: BAGHDAD / Obelisk: The World Bank predicted that Iraq achieve economic growth of 3.1% during the current year 2016 as a result of the recovery of oil and non-oil sectors compared to 0.5% for 2015. The bank stressed that the ongoing conflicts damaged economic activity in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen and the loss of life and destruction of infrastructure and the movement of trade, the World Bank predicted high growth rate in Iraq.
This expectation from the World Bank, diminish the importance of Iraqi Finance Minister’s comments last week about the lack Baghdad’s ability to provide salaries for employees in the next April. And accordingly it declined Zebari for his statement and said that the federal government is able to pay the salaries of staff and will continue to be provided.
He criticized among political, academic and citizens Zebari’s remarks, and matched in their statements that the salaries of employees and retirees ‘red line’. Iraqis and give confidence the government of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in the government’s commitment to providing salaries.
OOTW: Palm-solid American news sites reported that the volume of stocks of Iraqi officials of previous Governments, as well as officials of the Government of Kurdistan aklik deposited in banks have so far reached (220).
That amount alone is enough to counterbalance Iraq for three years without a single barrel of oil exports and indicated that these shocking facts you should see the Iraqi people and the international community to know well where did Iraq funds and wealth over the past years, and why bear the rigours of austerity in the presence of these exorbitant amounts.
Magda said Tamimi (member of the Finance Committee in the House of representatives) that “the Iraqi Treasury witnessed a loss of 228 billion Iraqi dinars ($ 186.2 million) in fake projects during the past year, was supposed to be carried out by the competent authorities in the previous Government (referring them to the second term of former Prime Minister Nuri al

and that the integrity Commission will verify the invariance of these projects involved and then take the necessary action, noting that among the projects involved senior officials in the State, both former or current.

adding that fear of the state’s inability to provide salary with a marked decline in oil prices and not to emphasize not to hand over salaries in the month of April 2016 “.
“The state will be in this year, is able to provide job opportunities do not even think with lower oil prices higher salaries to improve the living conditions of citizens.” It ended 25 K
OOTW: THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS ARTICLE IS THAT THEY DO NOT REFER TO MALIKI AS DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER, OR VICE PRESIDENT
OOTW: THEY REFER TO HIM AS HIS PREVIOUS POST AS HEAD OF THE STATE OF LAW – WHICH BTW, THE SLC OFFICIAL WEBSITE DOES NOT HAVE HIM LISTED AT THE HEAD
BOBBY: He could always give back some of the money he stole lol
OOTW: GOVERNMENT APOLOGIZES FOR LACK OF IMPLEMENTING REFORMS
OOTW: SO THEY WANT TO OVERTURN THE DECISION TO REDUCE THE GOVT OFFICIALS SALARIES, BUT STILL WANT TO TAKE MONEY AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE
OOTW: ABADI’S APPROVAL RATING IS EVER ON THE DECLINE
Doug_W: her needs to get the reforms in gear
OOTW: I AM LISTENING NOW TO A CC FROM JANUARY 3 2016 – IN THE CALL THEY STATE THAT OIL AND GAS IS PASSED JUST NOT ENACTED…NOW, LET ME SHOW YOU THIS FROM JUNE 2015
OOTW: The only way forward to resolve these disagreements between Baghdad and Erbil is to pass the Federal Revenue Sharing Law and the Federal Hydrocarbon Law, as well as establishing the relevant federal institutions underpinned by these laws to regulate the practice in Federal Iraq across all provinces and regions. With a failure to do so, current and future political deals will continue to be short-lived and fail drastically, prolonging the ongoing institutional and constitutional vacuum that has existed since 2006.
OOTW: WHY DOES EVERYONE PIN SO MUCH ON THE OIL AND GAS LAW AS A PRECURSOR OR SIGN OF AN “RV”?
OOTW: IT GETS DOWN TO THE REVENUE SHARING LAW
OOTW: THIS LAW (REVENUE SHARING LAW) HAS HAD ONLY ONE READING
OOTW: THAT WE CAN TELL BY THE PARLIAMENT SITE
OOTW: AND BTW…IF ALL LAWS WERE IN PLACE PERTAINING TO BE ABLE TO DISTRIBUTE SHARES TO THE PEOPLE FOR OIL PROCEEDS, THEY COULD EASILY DOLE OUT THE MONIES TO THEM AT THE CURRENT RATE OF THE IQD
OOTW: THE PRIMARY REASON TO WATCH FOR THIS, IF EVEN STILL APPLICABLE, IS THAT WE WANT TO SEE COHESION BETWEEN THE GOI AND THE KURDS
OOTW: SO, EVEN IF THE HCL IS ENACTED, WE STILL NEED TO WAIT FOR THE REVENUE SHARING LAW IN ORDER TO SUPPORT DINAR LORE, THAT HCL NEEDS TO BE OR IS PASSED – IN EITHER CASE, WE STILL NEED THE FEDERAL REVENUE SHARING LAW
OOTW: TO MY MIND, THE PASSING OF HCL, OIL AND GAS, ETC IS NOT AN ALARM BELL THAT THE “RV” IS COMING
OOTW: CERTAINLY, WE HAVE SEEN ARTICLES ELUDING THAT THERE HAS BEEN A CENSUS PERFORMED, HOWEVER, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF THIS AT ANY GOVT SITE
