Post Brought From Currency Chatter With Tlar Comment
Stevel & Ray Update as of 08/29/2014
This was on Iraqi TV and we want to share.
To clear up the confusion, here is the latest facts:
Two of the ministers are being contested by a representative from Najaf and wants them replaced. The minister of health and the minister of utilities.
The President of Parliament is giving them two more days to be replaced.
Then on September 2, the official list of ministers will be released to the media and the people.
Then on September 3, the Prime Minister and all his ministers will be sworn in.
The ministers will officially start their jobs September 7.
The budget is supposed to be brought up before Parliament after September 3.
It could be September 4th or 5th or any day after that.
One of Rays guys saw this on Iraqi TV last night.
We will keep posted when we hear more. Have a safe weekend. Steve
Now to start putting this in order of importance.
First of all, so many of you wanted to know what the "Federation Law" was all about. I had a chance to talk to Ray and we did get to the bottom of all of this.
When the Federation Law was passed by parliament, what it did was remove all previous laws (Iraq Federal Laws) that were recorded or on the books and replaced them with the new current laws that was in accordance with the constitution.
This is huge as the previous laws had old Saddam laws and Maliki laws that was created. Those are gone and the new ones prevail.
This law was passed
Gazette Post No. 4332 Confirmation of Masum & assign Abadi to form COM
1 set of His Excellency Dr. Mohammed Fuad Masum, president of the Republic of Iraq No. 150
2 hauling the President of the Republic, Mr. Jalal Talabani to retire No. 151
3 Assigning Dr Haider Jawad al-Abadi formation of the Council of Ministers No. 152
4 rules of procedure of the board of the National Monitoring to prevent nuclear weapons and chemical and biological No. 1
5. instructions liquidation Iraqi nuclear installations No. 1
#1 and #2 are self explanatory.
#3 appears to be the official recognition that Abadi is the Prime Minister candidate. So based on Steve's post this is likely the first step in making Abadi's candidacy official.
We will see the official confirmation after swearing in.
From Currency Chatter: In response to above post
Big John: Tlar, How does that compare with your intel ? Not complaining, just seeking clarification. I always enjoy and respect your posts.
Tlar: Big John, we are talking apples and oranges. It does not interfere. He is talking about ministers and my information is now talking of an overall agreement on a platform of the things the government is promising to deal with and its solutions.
Some Ministers may be in dispute but those will be resolved. The platform is a series of pre-agreed solutions to big issues (promises in writing) with known outcomes such as the resolution of the HCL and its agreements and article 140 and its resolution.
That will guarantee the Kurds and the Sunni's will get what they want and will support this government.
They can't get everything done all at once and some things they can't even start until there is a new COM in place which means a seated government.
This agreement in writing is the roadmap that they have all promised to follow.
Everyone will sign it once the negotiations are done.
Once the agreement is done they will register it with the court.
