Millionday News time 5/9/14 Part 1
Welcome To Friday Night News Time With Millionday!
[millionday] Shaikhani raised the issue of the presidency next session is to be occupied strongly these days in the Kurdistan region, for the impact of the statements made by the President of the Central Council of the National Union Adel Murad days before his candidacy for governor of Kirkuk Necmettin cream for the assumption that position as successor to ailing President Jalal Talabani, issued multiple positions contrary to this nomination,
[millionday] including the position of the presidency of the Kurdistan region, which stipulated that the nomination of assume this position by the Kurdish parliament, as will represent the people of the Kurdish region,
and joined the Secretary General of the Islamic Union Muhammad Faraj to this view, a statement on yesterday which confirmed "that the candidate for the presidency of the Republic of Iraq must be approved by all the political parties in Kurdistan."
[millionday] note -- the president of the nation must be aproved by all parties lets us know that power sharing is going to be the way of governing for Iraq -- I was asked this today -- so yes
[millionday] The Presidency of the Republic of Iraq is the share of the Kurds, where they were to sign a political agreement in this regard and the transformation of this agreement a custom unconstitutional, and therefore any person to be nominated for this position must be agreed upon by all the forces and political parties of Kurdistan as it represents all components of Kurdistan, including the disputed territories and Kurdish communities abroad.
[millionday] "said Secretary General of the Islamic Union" that more important is that the demands of the Kurds to amend Law presidency to ensure the expansion of the powers of the president and transfer office of the just position Tharifaty to the position of an actor because of the occupied represents one of the basic components and large in Iraq. "
[millionday] note -- democracy is in order and this is great news to see these statements along with their first election
[millionday] For his part, a senior Kurdish politician, Dr. Mahmoud Othman, "to talk about this position is premature, presumably aspect of the Kurdish that focuses on the basic issues and the task instead of secondary concern in this matter, "as he put it. He pointed out that "there are many problems worsening with Baghdad is supposed to be solved rather than occupancy people question the next presidency."
[millionday] note -- in other words -- they are what we call 'jumping the gun' to even be discussing this [millionday] some of the issues with the kurds>>>>
[millionday] Osman said in a statement the "morning": There is a basic demands of the Kurdish people has not yet been achieved, since 11 years is still outstanding problems is the most important problem Article 140 and the fate of the disputed areas,
and the differences of oil, and the problem of the Peshmerga standstill without any reasonable solutions satisfactory to both parties, presumably the Kurdish leadership to focus their efforts on resolving these issues next session and not the occupancy of public opinion who will assume the post in Baghdad. "
[millionday] note -- the kurds are seemingly ready to resolve everything and sick of it too
[millionday] Asked whether There are no contacts on the distribution of the sovereign Supreme government coming, especially the office of President Osman said "there are contacts of Shiite blocs with the National Union in this regard, but these connections are not enough,
because it's relation to the total of the Kurdish people and political forces in Kurdistan, and is supposed to be the candidate for the job consensual because nutshell represent the Kurdish people the power of the Federal,
[millionday] and may not be held side deals with this or that party in this regard, and come back to repeat that there are issues more important than the nominations this position,
a Kurdish demands basic must occupies the priority agenda of the political parties outgoing Baghdad, Time is not appropriate to enter into a spiral of nominations coming for the presidency. "
[millionday] this to me is the most important part of the report -- >>>
[millionday] He was regional president Massoud Barzani has set conditions Kurdish participation Iraqi government next, said during a meeting with the latter's emissary EU Yana Habiyscova "The Kurdistan region is looking forward to a genuine partnership in Iraq,
and not be treated the Kurds as second class citizens Mansain to the orders of others. "noting" that Iraq was established after the First World War on the basis of the partnership between the two Kurdish and Arab, but the partnership did not materialize on the ground.
[millionday] note -- exactly what i was saying about the issue with the kurds --- they want true partnership -- not too much to ask if you have to do the work [ROBINREDHED] that was a lot to digest
[ROBINREDHED] what did it all mean?
[millionday] so as we see they are ready without a doubt to get things done in the kurdistan region - now if they will just realize that the nation is not going to stand still due to their dragging feet
[millionday] it means that the kurds are planning resolve of all issues on the table and also want to be part of the nation in an entirely partner sharing government ---
the goal as they are putting it in multiple speeches is to move past all unresolved issues and move forward where they belong as the only thing they are discussing --- oil--art.140-distribution -- budgeting -- etc
[millionday] brb with more smile
[coolspot] Very disgraceful that Maliki during his time as Prime Minister never concluded this important agreement!!
[millionday] here we go - now this is shocking to say the least
[Pablo] If the Kurds are now pushing through to get things done, what of Mnt Goat's report on the Observer that they intend to once again stall the process…until Maliki’s mandate with the government as prime minister is over in June to prevent him from getting more money? Do you think he's right, or do you disagree?
[ROBINREDHED] or have you read it?
[millionday] i have not read it
joekid] Pablo I think the goat was referring to the powers that be and not the goi stalling.....all of it hogwash really
[millionday] i also do not see anything in ink that shows how Maliki would be getting dinar if the budget passes but i do have this going on --
[millionday] Al Shorfa has reported an announcement by the provincial governor of Baghdad Riyadh al-Adhadh that infrastructure projects worth 200 billion dinars ($172 million) will be launched shortly in the towns surrounding Baghdad.
[millionday] While the provincial governor announced the news, it is notable that Baghdad’s controversial mayor Naim Abub al-Kaabi has come under fire in recent months for failure to complete infrastructure projects amid rumours of corruption, according to the subscription news letter Inside Iraqi Politics.
The new projects will cover water purification, roads, electricity and sanitation, and will be carried out in Abu Ghraib, al-Mahmoudiyyah, al-Taji, al-Yusufiyyah, al-Tarmiya, Jisr Diyala and al-Sada.
[millionday] now let me address this
millionday] this is project money for baghdad -- this would be budgeted -- so for the statement here to say that they will be receiving and launching shortly -- that is positive news for the budget obviously
[millionday] it appears that they expect CBI to start distributing the budget/project funds shortly --- so great and encouraging with how much they have put on the budget being passed
[Road_Kill] Has the budget ben passed?
[millionday] no it has not been passed according to the ink but i have something on it tonight
[jtank] Anything on HCL, Smartcards and WTO?
[millionday] yes -- the hcl is supposed to be addressed when they have the funding for it and the report we had was that its content has been agreed upon -- the smartcards i had something today about the loading to begin internationally but have to find it again ---- and the wto is to meet this month
[baldeagle] So is the stalling have anything to do with this deal on HR 2847 On the currency in the United States. I am listening to this Stanberry report.
[jtank] thx MD
[millionday] also the kurds brought it up as being addressed at the next meeting (oil)
[mudder] Do you think the CBI wil distribute the funds before the government is seated???
[millionday] CBI will distribute the funds as soon as the budget law is passed --- it wont be dependent on the seated gov - this will be to the provinces and projects -- the representatives will change on the 15th of june
[ROBINREDHED] millionday So is the stalling have anything to do with this deal on HR 2847 On the currency in the United States. I am listening to this Stanberry report.
[millionday] yw all the time hun
[millionday] do you mean the stalling on the budget?
[millionday] no i dont think the stall on the budget has to do with the HR 2847 On the currency in the United States --- i think its quorum and the kurds feeling as though they are a part of Iraq in its budget
[millionday] i do have something on the budget let me get it and then i will bring something on the HR 2847 On the currency in the United States
[millionday] remember that Iraq has stated or the national alliance actually has stated that they can vote through the budget without the kurds
[millionday] well many know that is not the best idea obviously due to the point it will make and the lack of national unity - so this has a different spin on it
[millionday] Ruled the parliamentary Finance Committee migrate file budget to parliament next and likely to be approved soon.
A member of the Committee MP Abdul Hussein al-Yasiri that "some deputies of the National Alliance will present a request to the Presidency of the Council of Representatives for the purpose of allocating a session to discuss and approve the federal budget and other blocs invitation to attend the meeting in order to complete the quorum."
[baldeagle] ok, I need to do some research on this Bill. It don't sound to good. Sounds like our President wants to get rid of our currency whatever this Bill is, it is to take place July 1, 2014.
[millionday] He pointed out that the ongoing negotiations between the Governments of the Kurdistan region and the federal about the export of oil and disagreements budget can reach a solution from which to pay toward approving the budget during the remaining period of the current parliament.
[millionday] baldeagle i already have and will bring it in a sec hun
millionday] so they are discussing the resolve as one nation so we shall see what they end up doing but the previous report by parliament was that they would meet on sunday and pass it through
[millionday] so as we see here there are multiple reports and some look as though sunday is the day of the budget and some look as though they are going to meet but
[millionday] the one thing that has us most interested is the fact that Turki CBI governor stated that he is going to activate the economic reform without the budget through international investment banking and project monies
