IRAQI PARLIAMENT VOTED TO PASS THE ELECTORAL LAW

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Iraqi protesters are cautiously welcoming parliament’s approval of a new electoral law on Tuesday, after months of demonstrations led by youth demanding drastic reforms.

The Iraqi parliament voted to pass the electoral law following weeks of debate over the new measures that have the potential to overhaul the country’s political system. Most of the disagreements between the political parties were over articles 15 and 16.

The articles give the people the freedom to vote for individual candidates rather than political lists and parties. Individuals must now obtain a minimum of votes to be elected and votes cast for losing candidates will no longer be given to their political list.

The new law will also see parliamentarians voted for and representing electoral districts, rather than entire provinces as is the current system.

The law passed despite most Kurdish MPs refusing to vote on the 50-article law as a complete package. In a press conference, the MPs called for more discussions and amendments to some measures within the law.

The previous electoral laws gave political parties the power to transfer votes for losing candidates to others who needed a boost to meet the required threshold that would see them enter the parliament. The new law approved today means votes will be cast for individuals and not political lists, potentially lessening the influence of the established parties.

The old laws were written by Shiites, Kurds, and Sunnis in 2005, during the writing of the constitution that was supervised by the US. The political parties have been using the laws and the constitution for their own interests for years.

The new laws do not give more space for women in the parliament, keeping the 25 percent quota. The Iraqi parliament consists of 329 seats with 84 reserved for women.

A new electoral law and reforms within the electoral commission are two of the key demands of protesters since October 25.

Youth of Iraq started nationwide protests in central and southern provinces on October 1 against corruption, lack of basic services, and mass unemployment. After a halt for the Shiite religious Arbaeen tradition, protests resumed on October 25 with fresh demands, including electoral reform and changing the parliamentary system into a presidential one. Protesters also demanded the resignation of the three presidencies – the prime minister, parliament speaker, president. Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi announced on November 29 that he was stepping down, though he remains in the role as caretaker until a new prime minister is named.

The protests were met with lethal force by security forces and masked gunmen. More than 510 people, including protesters and security force members, have been killed and at least 17,000 people wounded since October 1.

Twin brothers Hassan and Raham who are protesting in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square, tweeted that the new electoral law was a partial victory, saying “We won this round.”

Other demands of the protesters are still to be met, including that the prime minister not belong to a political party and that all weapons are under the control of the state. There are more than 65 militia units operating under the name of the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF, also known as Hashd al-Shaabi in Arabic).

The PMF was created in 2014 following a fatwa, or religious call to action, from Iraq’s highest Shiite religious authority, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, in response to the Islamic State (ISIS) insurgency. Although the PMF has been brought under the umbrella of the official Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), and measures have been taken to integrate the units into Iraq’s military apparatus, the PMF continues to act independently.

Several PMF commanders have been elected to the Iraqi parliament, many of them affiliated with the powerful Fatih bloc. The new electoral law did not restrict the participation of political parties that have armed wings.

Following the resignation of Abdul-Mahdi, the political parties have been locked in talks to nominate a suitable candidate for prime minister. Several names have been put forward for the job, including current Higher Education Minister Qusai al-Suhail, by the Bina coalition.

The Bina coalition, which claims to be the biggest in the parliament, headed by Hadi al-Amiri, counts former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and political parties affiliated with the PMF among its membership.

On the other side, the Islah coalition has opposed the candidates offered by Bina and called for snap elections. The Islah coalition is headed by influential Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and includes former Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

It is unlikely that Bina, Islah or any political bloc can propose a candidate for prime minister who will gain the protesters’ seal of approval. The protesters have rejected the appointment of any prime minister who is part of the current political establishment. They demand the “old class” that has been ruling the country since the toppling of Saddam Hussein in 2003 leave power to make way for a new era.

Sadr, who also leads his own militia, the Saraya al-Salam, welcomed the electoral law passed by parliament in a tweet calling himself the voice of the people, saying “another demand of the protesters has been met.”

“Everyone is waiting for an independent and honest electoral commission; otherwise we won’t accept it,” he added.

The Iraqi Supreme Judiciary Council selected new members of Iraq’s Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) during a draw process supervised by the United Nations on Monday.

The IHEC will be supervised by the Iraqi Supreme Judiciary Council.

Seven who have been approved are Abbas Farhan, Jalel Adnan, Aamir Musa, Fayyadh Hussein, Ali Rashid, Inaam Yasin, and Fatah Mohammed. Two more will be appointed from the Kurdistan Region, once the Kurdistan Region’s Judiciary Council sends the names of its nominates to Baghdad.

An outside expert appointed by the United Nations will also join the IHEC

IRAQI CITIZENS DECIDE TO BOYCOTT IRANIAN MADE GOODS UNTIL IRAN LEAVES IRAQI POLITICS (Mnt Goat -excellent article and I would suggest everyone to read it and read it carefully)

By Salman Ameen

KARBALA, Iraq – Anger over Iran's stranglehold on Baghdad's political system has helped propel an unprecedented protest movement -- and now Iraqi activists are hitting the Islamic Republic where it hurts, with a goods boycott.

Tehran has held enormous sway over its neighbor Iraq since dictator Saddam Hussein was toppled by a US-led invasion in 2003.

And that influence has spilled over into the commercial arena, with exports from Iran to Iraq ten times those moving in the opposite direction.

Using the slogan "let them rot," protesters who have taken to the streets since October 1 to demand wholesale political change are now shunning everything Iranian -- from fruit to sugary drinks.

For 24-year-old protester Hatem Karim, the boycott kills two birds with one stone.

"It allows us to create jobs for Iraqis and means our money stays in the country", he told AFP.

There are even hopes the boycott could help revive domestic industry, battered by forty years of intermittent war, a decade of sanctions under Saddam, and ineffectual policy since the invasion.

"We must boycott all foreign goods to support our own national production," Karim urged.

Impromptu open air markets at protest encampments have stands offering "Made in Iraq" goods to patriotic consumers, in a country where one in four young people are jobless.

Uphill struggle
Only Turkey exports more to Iraq than Iran, which sends products including cars, dairy and fresh produce, amounting to a total annual value of around $9 billion (8.1 billion euros).

Iraq is the OPEC cartel's second biggest oil producer, but more than half of all hydrocarbon revenues have been siphoned off by crooked politicians and their cronies under recent administrations.

The private sector is almost non-existent and industry is on its knees, with the non-oil trade balance in heavy deficit.

Numerous factories that shut during the 1990s trade embargo or because of war -- the latest devastating conflict came against Islamic State jihadists from 2014 to late 2017 -- have simply never re-opened.

Iraqi factories lack the capacity to supply national demand, warns economist Ahmad Tabaqchali at the Institute of Regional and International Studies in Sulaimani.

"Either they are too small, or they are not profitable," because there is no private sector to cover the basic needs of 40 million Iraqis.

"Nearly everything is imported," he told AFP.

And if the boycott of Iranian goods escalates, the main beneficiary will not be Iraqi industry, he says.

Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Jordan will likely gain the most.

Amman recently signed an agreement with Baghdad exempting taxes on the export of some products.

Local producers are demanding the state drastically increase import taxes to protect them.

They complain that they cannot compete with Iran, whose exports have received support from a currency that has been in free-fall since the US reimposed sanctions last year.

'Made in Iraq'
But the young protesters are determined to direct their apparently boundless energy into changing all that.

They have launched Facebook groups and film adverts for locally produced fizzy drinks with sparkling studio quality.

"We want a renaissance at all levels, including trade," says one protester.

In the Shiite holy city of Karbala, some 100 kilometers (60 miles) south of Baghdad, Bassem Zakri looks at yogurts and white cheeses leaving his factory's production line.

The increasingly revered words "Made in Iraq" appear on each pot.

Production has increased five-fold since the start of the protests on October 1, reaching forty tonnes per day, he said.

One shopper in a supermarket in central Baghdad sees progress.

"Before, Iraqi products were always the most expensive, but now the price of some goods has more than halved," he told AFP.

Yet, while the boycott may gain momentum, Iranian firms may already be employing inventive ways to skirt it, according to one activist.

An online video shows him scanning the bar code of a pot of yogurt stamped with 'Abu Ghreib' -- Baghdad's biggest dairy firm.

Mislabeled, according to the scanner, which flashes 'Made in Iran' on its screen.

DETAILS ON ARTICLE 15 OF THE NEW ELECTION LAW

{Baghdad: Al Furat News} The House of Representatives resolved in its regular session today, Tuesday, the dialectic of political blocs on Article 15 of the new election law.

Where the contentious paragraphs are resolved in the electoral law as follows:

– Multiple constituencies
– Individual election
– The winner is the one who gets the highest number of votes in the constituency.
– In case the votes are equal, the voting shall be held among equal candidates.

The head of the Parliamentary Bloc, Faleh Al-Sari, in a press conference, specified the bloc’s position on voting on the Parliamentary Elections Law with four points, namely:
“Individual voting and one electoral constituency at 100 percent, and the winner who gets the highest votes.

Some Kurdish representatives withdrew from the parliament session in protest against the vote regarding Article 15 and 16 of the electoral law, but did not break the quorum for the session.

Today’s parliament session was broadcast live.
The session saw voting on the paragraphs of the new election law?
The House of Representatives failed yesterday, Monday, to hold its session due to the lack of a quorum and disagreements between the blocs over the draft election law, hoping to vote on all its clauses in today’s session.

IRAQ.. DEMANDS FOR THE DEPARTURE OF QASSEM SOLEIMANI FROM THE "GREEN ZONE"

Protesters in Tahrir Square in Baghdad, Baghdad, on Tuesday evening BURNED THE FLAG OF IRAN, calling on Iranian General Qassem Soleimani to leave the Green Zone.

The protesters demanded that Soleimani, commander of the Iran’s Quds Corps, leave the Green Zone to Iran, a Sky News Arabic correspondent said.

The protesters blocked the road linking the capital Baghdad to Karbala province by burning tires, he said, adding that the international road in the Nile area of Babil province was also cut off.

The continuing protests come as the Iraqi parliament passed the new electoral law, which was one of the main demands of the demonstrators, who have swept the country since early October.

The decision of the Iraqi Parliament was remarkable that it approved the legislation of the new law, in all its provisions, after overcoming the points of contention.

The controversy focused on articles 15 and 16 of the Electoral Code, both of which are of great importance, as they define the form of candidacy and divide Iraq into several constituencies rather than one, as the protesters demand.

"THE PASSAGE OF THE LAW IS A VICTORY," SAID MUQTADA AL-SADR, leader of the Sadrist movement.

With this recognition, the movement in Iraq has fulfilled its second demand for the adoption of a new electoral law, and it achieved its first demand at the beginning of December, when prime minister Adel Abdul Mahdi was forced to resign.

Iraqis continue to denounce the ruling class, which has so far failed to agree to nominate a new prime minister, and are protesting the names put forward to take over the new government, which protesters say is close to Iran.

They also denounce the lack of any economic recovery for 16 years, after half of the oil revenues during those years evaporated into the pockets of politicians and businessmen accused of corruption.
*************************************************************
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SURPLUS LEFT OVER FROM THE ABADI ADMINISTRATION?

President of Al-Nasr Coalition Haider Al-Abadi renewed, on Monday, December 23, 2019, his rejection of any external interference in the choice of the next prime minister or interference in the internal Iraqi affairs, indicating that Al-Nasr coalition has a steadfast stance regarding the selection of an independent figure who enjoys the confidence of the people for the stage temporary ends with early elections, under UN supervision.

The Abadi received the delegation of the General Syndicate of Iraqi Trainers, as it warned against reaching a state of political suffocation, which would "cast a shadow over the country's situation, the importance of hearing the voice of the people and realizing its demands and aspirations," the coalition .said in a statement received by Al-Masala Al-Abadi said, according to the statement, "THERE WERE GOVERNMENT FAILURES DURING THE PAST YEAR AS THE GOVERNMENT HAD A CLEAR CONFUSION AND DEFICIT IN MANAGING THE AFFAIRS OF THE STATE, and this is why we warned of its continuation and asked us to change it," warning that the coming of a similar government WOULD LEAD THE COUNTRY TO FURTHER DECLINE AND COLLAPSE.

(Mnt Goat – Iran would luv this happen. Then they could step in fully and take it over. Again Isay… this is how the corrupt work. Get it? They are attempting to do the same with the US economy and would have probably succeeded if it were not for the Trump administration.)

He continued, THE PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT HAD THOUGHTFUL SPENDING AND LEFT A LARGE FINANCIAL SURPLUS TO START PROJECTS TO ACHIEVE A SECOND VICTORY in the field of construction, but the resigned government did not improve its disposal on the other hand, Al-Abadi stressed "the importance of training and developing capabilities for job cadres, there are those who see that he has sufficient knowledge, but there are important educational materials to be found, indicating that there are excellent Iraqi energies that must be sought and given a role.

SADR ADDRESSES IRAQI AND SHIITE POLITICIANS WITH AN UNPRECEDENTED MESSAGE

December 25,2019

Today, Wednesday, the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, called on Sunni and Shiite politicians in Iraq to remove the corrupt from power and stop ignoring the Iraqi people.

In a tweet on his personal page on the Twitter site, Al-Sadr stated: “The master of the guardians of Ali bin Abi Talib says (Oh God, you know that it was not one of us who was competing in Sultan, nor did he seek anything from the curiosity of the wreckage, but to return the milestones from your religion, and we show reform In your country, the oppressed are safe from your servants, and the idle is established from your borders.

Al-Sadr added: “With whom you belong to (peace be upon him), you are sufficient to adhere to the authority and its riches, and to you the injustice of the parish, and warn yourselves the emirate of black and corruption. Be aware and do not have your hearts closed and your hearts read.

Al-Sadr addressed Sunni and Shiite politicians by saying: “Oh politicians, Shi’ites and Sunnis, keep the corrupt from power, Islam is innocent of them,” adding his tweet with the tag “# Stop you _ ignoring _ the people”.

On Tuesday, Al-Sadr tweeted, commenting on the approval of the election law, that the candidate of the people will win and the polemical experimenter should not be tried, he said.

Al-Sadr wrote in a tweet to him on “Twitter”: “In the name of the people. Another demand of the people's demands was fulfilled after the religious authority, the wise and the prayers stood with him, and every honorable patriot from among the deputies and others,” noting that “THE ELECTION LAW WILL EXCLUDE ALL CORRUPT PARTIES. Thank God. ”

He added, "WE ARE WAITING IMPATIENTLY FOR THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION TO BE TRULY IMPARTIAL AND INDEPENDENT, and we will not allow otherwise."

In ending I want everyone to know your constant prayers in the fight against evil (ISIS) and now the corruption in Iraq have worked. God has guided these young men and women on the battle field. He has guided the honest, patriots of Iraq to fight for their homeland. So this new war now on our citizens is underway. New battles are raging every day over corruption. These are battles to save our societies from the corrupt politicians and secret societies who are bent on taking what they want from our current wealth and from future generations without our permission. We must keep praying for the end to the rapid corruption and enslavement of people in Iraq and also in the United States. We must pray for our leaders that they may be anointed by the Holy Spirit and guided to do God’s work. We must stand by them and let them know we are still there to support them, even after the election is over. I have composed a prayer maybe we can all pray today in our own way and until the reinstatement of the Iraq dinar occurs.


PRAYER

“For all leaders of all nations, that they may be anointed by the Holy Spirit to do God’s will and work to bring about abundance and prosperity to their nation.

To fight this waging war on corruption, our freedoms, our liberties, socialist plans and injustice.

To bring all those corrupt to justice and pay for their crimes no matter how high up in the government they are.

That the FREE WORLD may be a shining example for the rest of the entire planet.

In the name of Jesus Christ our King and Savior, Amen”
