stlou: now..this other article referring to 150 signatures in parliament for the mandate of the PM I find very interesting..
guardian: i wonder if they are trading in the 250s and 100s now, suppose to the first part of Nov what is that about stlou?

stlou: let's try to break it down..
Alliance MP revealed Kurdistan Mahma Khalil, yesterday that 150 deputies signed so far on the draft law of the mandate of Prime Minister two terms, as he emphasized that the President of the Republic will apply the Constitution itself determine its mandate to two terms.
who is the president of the republic? Talabono?
guardian: ok two terms works 4me
stlou: Khelil said in an interview with long-Presse that "the number of signatures on the draft law of the mandate of Prime Minister adopted by the Sadrist movement reached a hundred and fifty signatures," noting that "the signatories are deputies from different political blocs." looks like it's bi-partisan..
guardian: one way or another they'll get rid of him
stlou: The Kurdistan Alliance MP that "the draft, which bear the signatures reached the legal committee in Parliament to complete formulations legal action, and then presented to the presidency of the parliament in preparation for inclusion on the agenda of the Council at its next".
my guess here is that because of the amount of signatures, it can now be brought up in parliament..
and placed on the agenda
And Khalil stressed that "the draft in line with the Constitution because of paragraph constitutional indicate the mandate of the President to two terms two and this should be applied to the mandate of Prime Minister," noting that "President Jalal Talabani will abide by the Iraqi constitution because patron Constitution and apply the Constitution itself determine the mandate for two two
a mandate for a two two
The Liberal bloc parliamentary internalized in the National Alliance announced in July last year with a number of independent deputies, after falling demand for withdrawal of confidence from the Prime Minister, announced a proposed law that would determine the mandate of Prime Minister two sessions and distributed to the masses in order to sign it.
so this is where it becomes interesting.. remember that the NA did not want to sign on to the no-confidence kick.. but.. this gives them a way to sign on to limiting maliki's terms
stlou: Article (72) of the Constitution first define the mandate of the President of the Republic in four years, and may be re-elected for a second term only, not the Constitution provides explicitly determine the mandate of the Prime Minister, or the President of the House of Representatives
guardian: sweeet! thing is...will the next one be even more corrupt? ^o)
stlou: so from this last part, i can only interpret that the constitution limits talabani to 2 consecutive four year terms, but does not specifically dictate the total amount of time the PM can serve.. and I guess that is the loophole they want to close..
Med (10:26:19): THAT IS VERY TRUE STLOU BUT THEY CANNOT CLOSE IT PARLIAMENT DOES NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY
stlou: to amend the constitution?
stlou: I read your article today Med..
Med: PARLIAMENT CANNOT SUBMIT DRAFT LAWS ON THEIR OWN ALL LAWS AND AMENDMENTS MUST GO THROUGH THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS OR THE PRIME MINISTER THEN PARLIAMENT DOES IT'S THING
stlou: which, in my opinion, would only leave them with one choice Med..
Med: WHICH IS FIRST
stlou: no confidence
Med: SECOND AND THEN THEY SIT AND FOSSILIZE
Med: OH THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT 5 MONTHS AGO BUT AS WE SAW TALIBANI SABOTAGED IT
stlou: I remember the NA not wanting to sign on to the no confidence vote, but wanted to be a party in the nomination of the new PM..
Med: WITH HIS ALL OF A SUDDEN DECISION.....
stlou: right..remember that..
Med: THAT HE WILL TALK TO ALL WHO SIGNED THE NC AND HE GOT 3 TO CHANGE THEIR MINDS THEN IT WAS LIKE
stlou: but if this goes down in flames, it just may piss off enough of the NA to get them to cast a vote for NC
Med: THEY JUST GAVE UP
stlou: remember that too
Med: WITH ONLY 3 SHORT YOU JUST GIVE UP WHAT KIND OF MENTAL MIDGETS ARE THESE MEN THEY ARE LIKE A BUNCH OF SPINELESS EUNICHS
stlou: seems to me they need to read a little about washington during the revolutionary war.. he didn't give up
Med: HE AS IN WHO
stlou: George Washington
Med: DUH I AM THINKING WASHINGTON DC
stlou: no med..they are something else
Med: YES THEY ARE
stlou: well..at least they had the first reading of the budget med
Med: YES AND THEY ONLY HAVE 14 MONTHS TO GET THE 2013 DONE LOL
guardian: then i tell myself...i only care about the RV...maliki or no maliki, shabibi or no shabibi LOL
Med: AFTER WATCHING SOME OF THE EVIDENCE UNFOLD OK I THINK MALIKI WAS LUCKY AS CRAP CUZ WHAT HE DID WAS JUST A GUESS -
THERE DEFINATELY IS A PROBLEM AND IT ISNT GOING TO BE THE CRAP I FORGOT WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY OH THE MANIPULATION OF THE AUCTIONS THAT IS A MONETARY POLICY CALL IT IS GOING TO BE THE RATION CARD ITEMS
stlou: and they are protesting maliki over that right now med
guardian: but the IMF wants the ration cards gone
Med: YES IT WILL BE VOLATILE YES AND THIS IS GOOD FOR US GUARDIAN BUT
guardian: they will get money on them instead
stlou: what, 30 bucks?
Med: THE ISSUE IS AND I DONT KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER ABOUT 15 PLUS MONTHS AGO MOR LIKE 20
guardian: instead of the rotten wasted food they sometimes get
Med: THE ISSUE OF WHY WAS ONLY 90 MIL IN IMPORTS COMING IN WHEN THEY SPENT SUPPOSEDLY 120 MILLION THEY ASKED SHABIBI AND HE JUST BLEW IT OFF NOW THAT 120 MIL WAS FOR THE RATION CARDS THEY ARE THINKING IT WAS POCKETED OK ENOUGH FOR NOW TY MED OUT
guardian: right no hiding that thanks med
Med: CUZ NOT SURE IT IS YW Guardian
guardian: hate to say it, but Shabibi looks bad among others haven't seen Saleh for awhile, wonder if he was arrested
Bam Bam: yes and for a long time I was thinking wow Shabibi was doing a great job
Med: NO HE WASNT GUARDIAN HE STILL IS AT CBI
guardian: haven't seen an article for awhile with him
Med: IN THE FEW COMMENTS SINCE THIS STARTED HE IS DISTANCING HIMSELF
38CABO: i know this doesnt look good for shabbs
Med: NO HE IS CONTINUING I HAVE EVIDENCE I HAVE EVIDENCE
Med: WELL THEN SUBMIT IT IF A PERSON DID LIKE YOU OR ME I KNOW WHAT WE WOULD BE DOING
38CABO: but i cant understand how the imf and world bank working side by side i think its all who its presented to
Med: IT ISNT IF YOU SAW MY CHAT ABOVE ABOUT THE MONETARY POLICY IT IS ABOUT THE RATION CARD ITEMS CBI BOUGHT WITH THE MONEY FROM THE AUCTIONS IT DOES NOT ADD UP NOW WHAT I AM NOT GOING TO BE SURPRISED AT IS THIS THEY WILL FIND CORRUPT OFFICIALS IN THE SADRISTS AND THE LIST BUT MALIKI WILL PROTECT ALL IN THE NA
38CABO: im not sure the people investigating the cbi are capable
Med: LOL YOU THINK
38CABO: and im sure there maybe a hint of politics involved
guardian: they can add 2+2 that's all they need lol
Med: THEY COULDNT FIND A MISSING CRAYON IN AN EMPTY ROOM
38CABO: they have been moving to have the cbi converted to hi tech internationally accepted computer programs
