"Unfair opportunities and injustice lead to injustice, corruption and the destruction of society." "It is not possible to establish a political system without a party organization, and our steps are not against partisan action, but the mistake is to extend party work to state institutions and to be appointed on the basis of partisan and personal loyalty," he said. "We are on the threshold of a new era and with justice, we are striking a blow to terrorism and corruption," he said. "We are a citizen state. http://www.ikhnews.com/index.php?page=article&id=158903

The importance of this matter comes from the fact that the Fund does not treat countries but deals with them with a high reservation and therefore this message means a real success to manage the economic file and monetary policy in particular, and this step will provide financial support up to (850) million dollars will be launched by the Fund, Billion dollars through the World Bank. These loans in turn give the green light to other international financial institutions and the private sector in dealing with Iraq according to the data of confidence. The second event associated with the first is the success of Iraq in the issuance of government bonds worth one billion dollars in the international market, the most prominent data of this success is that these bonds are guaranteed by the Iraqi government and not the US (as in the first issue), in addition to the interest rate paid less Expected to reach the limit of (6, (75 percent) per year, which is even lower than the interest paid by some Gulf countries and less than the expected rate before the issuance of up to (8 percent). It is clear that the factor of confidence in the future of the Iraqi economy was his role in this event where the total requests for Iraqi bonds more than six billion dollars, and this confidence came as a result of the reforms that Iraq worked with the Fund on the one hand and its success in defeating terrorism and its ability to arrange internal papers and transit The financial crisis despite the harsh conditions experienced during the past two years on the other hand . http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=142724

    A political party submits a lawsuit to the Federal Court to activate the law of dual nationality 08/15/2017 Iraq's national loyalty party demanded Tuesday the judiciary to activate the dual citizenship law, which was approved by the House of Representatives in the previous session, which prevents holders of dual nationality from holding sovereign and administrative positions. "Some of the spoilers used their dual passports to escape justice," said Ahmad al-Shammari, a spokesman for the party, in a statement received by Sky Press. "The non-activation of the law is a guarantee for the corrupters of legal accountability. To Iraq only note that the granting of nationality from any other country leads a constitutional right imposed on him loyalty to the same country. Al-Shammari stressed that "influential political parties bear the responsibility of disrupting the implementation of the law because it will prevent most of its leaders from taking up senior positions. The law was approved by the Constitution, which was voted by the people in 2005 and allowed dual citizenship of Iraqi citizens provided that no holder of another nationality, In the country, and that the issue of allowing representatives of diplomatic missions and ambassadors to take citizenship of the country in which they work, is a flagrant violation of the Constitution and international norms. He pointed out that "Iraqi law, which was adopted in 1935 requires the accounting of all those who hold Iraqi nationality and misuse the use, even if he is abroad, while the current law can not account for the spoilers and they are inside Iraq because they have foreign nationality." The party spokesman said that "the Iraqi National Accord Party will submit a formal request to the Federal Court to activate the law to be binding in the next phase." The Iraqi National Loyalty Party formed in early 2016 of Iraqi personalities known to aspire to build a strong Iraq and has its objectives, which are the most important to eliminate corruption, and then got the ratification of the establishment by the Independent Electoral Commission for elections. A number of Iraqi politicians have a dual prison that helped them to evade the Iraqi judiciary such as Governor of Basra Majid Nasraoui and Minister of Trade Falah al-Sudani, while some ambassadors have the nationality of the same country they serve as "ambassadors" of Iraq such as the Iraqi ambassador to Australia Hussein Amiri as well as ambassador Iraq in Jordan Safia Suhail, and this represents a clear violation of Iraqi law. http://www.skypressiq.net/2017/8/15/%D8%AD%D8%B2%D8%A8-%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%8A-%D9%8A%D9%82%D8%AF%D9%85-%D8%AF%D8%B9%D9%88%D9%89-%D9%84%D9%84%D9%85%D8%AD%D9%83%D9%85%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A7%D8%AA%D8%AD%D8%A7%D8%AF%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D9%84%D8%AA%D9%81%D8%B9%D9%8A%D9%84-%D9%82%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%88%D9%86-%D8%A7%D8%B2%D8%AF%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%AC-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AC%D9%86%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A9

    The private sector in Iraq is modern 15/8/2017 Dr.. Hamid Punitive we are watching with interest the changes and developments that have taken place on the national scene in particular and the world in general, as well as through the experiences of countries that have achieved success as economic application of policies and adopted macroeconomic stability and high investment rates without searching the details of these policies from one country to another that By integrating into the global economy gradually and selectively and strategically created a boom in economic growth. These countries adopted a stable macroeconomic policy that enabled them to absorb the rapid external changes. Here, it is necessary to improve their institutions and ensure the real partnership between the public and private sector, which has been able to achieve rapid economic growth in more than three decades. It was not necessarily those countries that tried to accelerate integration into the global economy Through the abolition or reduction of tariffs or those that abolished the restrictions on the movement of capital, but the countries that have been interested in increasing the share of investment in the total national income and adopted a stable economic policy. It is clear from the Asian experience that the ability of any country to absorb the aspects of international changes in the positive aspects and to avoid and reduce their negative effects here relied on the efficiency and quality of the public administration as it deepened and distributed its trade links in addition to increasing the share of products classified in those countries' exports. Since 2000. Since that date, we have had a role in guiding the private sector in all its details, in order to secure businessmen, traders, industrialists, contractors, farmers and investors, and towards a free economy. The private sector has an active role in economic development as the incubator of unemployment. Finance that has been and continues to be a single and unproductive economy. It is well known that the Iraqi economy faced major and complex problems, which led to a significant slowdown in the growth of the Iraqi economy and led to the emergence of major structural imbalances in the Iraqi economy. The low performance in the private and public sectors in Iraq will force the government to reconsider its role in economic life . When talking about the Iraqi private sector, we mean the broad sense of the sector, whether regular or irregular, which can be extended to include associations and unions of businessmen, quality and specialized unions, chambers of commerce, union of industries, trade unions, individuals and economic owners despite being marginalized for reasons that the sector may be unorganized or ineffective In the volume of investments for different considerations. There is also a lot of repetition of seminars, conferences and meetings with officials, which have become ineffective whether the bittersweet or not. Here lies the need, which requires the private sector to organize and form pressure forces on the government to expand the role of the private sector by organizing its ranks through an encouraging legislative framework and granting more incentives that create the appropriate climate for local investment and replace the government in the projects that resorted to it and form alliances and mergers that make it able To engage in large-scale projects, so that the private sector is the largest contributor to GDP and the active contributor to economic policy-making and the largest absorber of unemployment. * President of the International Federation of Businessmen in Iraq http://www.alsabaah.iq/ArticleShow.aspx?ID=142643

    Iran turns on "Moqtada al-Sadr" and "Ammar al-Hakim" and attack them !! 08/14/2017 Baghdad News - A report published by the site of the 'triangle' Iran, the moves' surprise 'of political parties and blocs, said that it' turned 'back to Iran, while he pointed out that the leader of the Sadrist movement Moqtada al-Sadr after his visit to Saudi Arabia' 'Step young Ammar al-Hakim was bad and have great risks will know in the next stage'. The site said in a report that 'Ammar al-Hakim and Sadr rebellion against Iran and brought Iraq into a new policy', unlikely that 'the process of movement of political groups, ethnic and religious in Iraq, aimed at advancing the political process in the long term'. The Iranian report, that 'although the Sunni political groups are still affected by the issue of Mosul and its organization in the upcoming elections, but it takes a little time,' noting that ' "The quick return of some Shiite and Kurdish political parties to Iran was very sudden." The report said that 'the departure of Hakim from the circle of the Islamic Supreme Council, which has been associated with a long history of the family of the wise, does not mean that the Supreme Council has become outside the political game,' noting that 'the step of young Ammar al-Hakim was bad and has great risks will know in the next phase' . The Iranian report poured anger on the movements of Muqtada al-Sadr and his orientation towards the Gulf and Arab and the return of Iraq to the Arab incubator, pointing out that 'Sadr after his visit to Saudi Arabia is no longer Sadr before visiting the Kingdom.' "Some explain Sadr's approach to the Gulf as an attempt to get Iraq out of the political chaos in the region, including tensions between Iran, Saudi Arabia and Qatar," the report said. The Iranian report was based on the fact that ' Based on the statements made by Sadr, one of the reasons for his trip to Saudi Arabia, may be an attempt to avoid sectarian and ethnic conflicts after the defeat of a pro-Iraqi organization. "It is not unlikely that the Shiite parties in Iraq will go to Saudi Arabia in the future after more communication with them in order for the Kingdom to be able to influence the Iraqi political scene." http://www.baghdadnews.info/index.php?page=article&id=24713
