Mohammed said in a press statement that "the Kurdistan Regional Government is corrupt and incapable of improving the living conditions of citizens, so that the current situation requires the readiness of citizens to launch mass demonstrations with the participation of political parties aimed at dissolving the current government." He added that "citizens are living conditions aggravated by corruption and lack of transparency in government institutions." The Speaker of the Parliament of Kurdistan also stressed the need for the security forces to protect the safety of citizens and protect them during the demonstrations. "The movement of change has submitted a project to form a transitional government to manage the current phase, but the parties of the Authority are trying to keep the current government intact," said Mohammad, who has been exercising his legislative duties in Sulaymaniyah since he was prevented from entering Erbil in 2015. It is noteworthy that the General Council of the Kurdish Movement for Change, proposed after a meeting in the city of Sulaymaniyah, to withdraw from the Kurdistan Regional Government, because of "failure" in the administration of the region. In recent times, demands have been raised to dissolve the KRG by some Kurdish political parties and to form a national unity government to run the region until the next elections. http://www.alliraqnews.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=69305

    Sounds like a plan. Hope they didn't make those Laws and Regulations too flexible. That could lead to even more corruption, which they definitely don't need if they are trying to build trust. Thanks harry.

    Corruption in Iraq is still out of control. I don't think it will ever get totally wiped out, but until it gets reduced to a manageable amount I have my doubts that foreign investment will want to do much business in Iraq. Right now is a great opportunity for an RV. With the release from Chapter VII they now have the freedom to take control of their own future. And with the exile of ISIS they have shown the world that they can manage physical security in their county. But Financial Security is also important in creating a healthy environment for a stable country. I agree with Haitham al-Jubouri in the giving strength to all those department that fight corruption. I think this may be the last and crucial key to our elusive RV. I guess we'll just have to see what takes place over the next few months. PS... BASSER... I feel for you :rolleyes: Many years ago, when my daughter was planning her wedding, I told my wife we could buy a top end BMW for what this wedding was costing. My wife asked my daughter to be a little more frugal with the wedding, but my daughter replied "Dad would want me to have the Best". We both knew who she got that gene from. All I could do is laugh and dig deep into my pockets. And I still laugh every time I think of it, as I'm sure you're doing now. Believe me, it's worth every dime it takes. :cool:

    Iraq and the seventh item .. Diplomatic victory and a promising investment opportunity 12/13/2017 Iraq has achieved a great diplomatic victory last Saturday after the United Nations issued a resolution to remove it from the seventh item in recognition of its implementation of the measures imposed under the provisions of the seventh item under resolutions 1958 (2010) and resolution 2335 (2016) and this victory rolled Iraq era of international domination imposed on The country for twenty-seven years because of the patronizing policies of the former regime. What does it mean that Iraq is out of Chapter VII? Iraq became under the seventh item issued by the United Nations, as a result of its occupation of Kuwait in 1990, can not buy the necessary foodstuffs and medicines because of the prevention of the sale of oil and because of besieged from all sides, also under this item freezing of Iraqi funds in all countries, which is The reason for the high rate of economic inflation and starvation of the general public. After the removal of Iraq from Article 7 (2390), he has a status equal to his position before the invasion of Kuwait. He can now buy his weapon without permission from the United Nations. He can retrieve his frozen funds in foreign countries and recover the remainder of the oil-for-food program under the administration of the Security Council. , And already received a few days ago Iraq $ 150 million, the remaining amount of that program. A member of the parliamentary legal committee Ibtisam al-Hilali said on Wednesday that "the exit of Iraq from the seventh item and the recovery of funds frozen abroad is an important step for large international investment in the country, and after this important international decision on the concerned government agencies to move quickly to begin recovery of Iraqi funds and assets frozen in "Al-Hilali added." This important decision and the important steps taken by the government will enhance the confidence of the international community in Iraq's economic policy in particular, which opens the door for international access to invest in the country. " It was preceded by the call of MP High Nassif to "follow-up the file of frozen Iraqi funds and balances because of the entry of Iraq in the seventh item, which stressed the need to accelerate the release of these funds and recover them and take advantage of them in the current situation in several areas, the most important of which is the appointment of graduates and job opportunities for the armies of the unemployed due to lack Appointments over the past two years. " The most important question remains: Will the politicians and economists in the country invest this important decision and the diplomatic victory in enhancing the confidence of the international community on the one hand and strengthening the Iraqi economy by recovering the frozen funds on the other hand? Or will the country lose another historic opportunity without political or economic investment? http://www.knoozmedia.com/290251/%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%B1%D8%A7%D9%82-%D9%88%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A8%D9%86%D8%AF-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B3%D8%A7%D8%A8%D8%B9-%D9%86%D8%B5%D8%B1-%D8%AF%D8%A8%D9%84%D9%88%D9%85%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%8A-%D9%88%D9%81%D8%B1/

" He said in an interview for "morning" that "Iraq will receive the amount of $ 325 for each aircraft passing Iraqi airspace, and the activation of the movement of aviation raises the amounts obtained from this process," adding that "the geographical location of Iraq on the map of the world makes it the most suitable for air traffic between poles The eastern and western world, where it shortens the time and reduces the cost of fuel in the case of adopting alternative routes to Iraqi airspace, which makes many international companies mean the Iraqi atmosphere. Achieving revenue and expected angry that "aircraft passing through Iraqi airspace through the atmosphere over the next periods movement rises, this means that Iraq is on the verge of achieving significant financial revenue with the rise in the graph of the number of aircraft that mean Iraqi airspace." The US Aviation Administration and its associated companies have revealed the return of the Iraqi airspace after the announcement of the victory on the "duel", as the US Aviation Administration and its associated companies re-fly in Iraqi airspace after the announcement of victory. Aviation Department has confirmed the expert in civil aviation and air transport Abdul Karim Leftah the importance of announcing the US Aviation Administration and its associated companies to resume flights in Iraqi airspace after the announcement of victory.

" "Airports are paying more attention to infrastructure, especially as Iraq is coming back to the forefront as a point of contact between Asia, Europe and Africa," he said. The number of flights and continued gesture that "re-flight will contribute to the introduction of good amounts to the treasury of the state, especially since the recent period has seen an increase in the number of flights flying over the Iraqi airspace, reaching more than 150 aircraft." It is noteworthy that parliamentary committees have confirmed that "the increase in the number of flights that cross over Iraq is a sign of Iraq's openness to the world again." "This also shows that security concerns have been relieved by the sacrifices of the Iraqi forces," she said in a press statement, praising "the efforts to re-run civil aircraft routes and ensure their smooth and safe movement." "This development will encourage more commercial air carriers to choose Iraq as a safe passage for civil aviation, especially as it enjoys a geographical location characteristic of the transition between countries of the East and West," they said. http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=149145

"He explained that "the only step to combat corruption is to strengthen the main regulatory tools, namely the Integrity Commission and the Bureau of Financial Supervision and the security services and reform of the judiciary because there are many problems in the judiciary where some files are transferred to the judiciary, but because of corruption, these files are settled by some corrupt" .
