Tuesday News Summaries and Commentaries
Iraqi PM names final Cabinet ministers
I put this article up to show how crazy the news can be from Iraq.....don't get excited about what you see here....it is not what it seems.....other articles indicate the two main ministers are yet to be approved.....so we continue to wonder what is going on over there.
Parliament postpones vote on the security minister to next Thursday
Well not only the Defense Minister...but the Interior Minister as well.....look for them hopefully on Thursday.
Kurdish calls to approve oil and gas law
The Kurds definitely see the need to get the oil and gas law passed and get ready to move forward.....bringing the Kurds properly into the fold of the law as they should be....time will tell how this evolves with the new government....keep an eye on this law as it is important to us.
Aajl..asunaid sworn in as a member of Parliament substitute for Maliki
So Sinead has been sworn into Parliament to replace Maliki's spot since he was placed as a figurehead Vice President of the Republic.....not sure I would care to have that dubious honor.
Urgent .. Abadi refuses to set a time period for submission of Ministers unsuspecting
Well it sounds like Abadi put forth a couple of names that he thought would be ok....but was shown that Parliament wanted no part of them....so now what is the game plan....Abadi needs to regroup....rethink....and reload....get ready.
Urgent .. House agrees to take the bird to an improved position of Minister of Water Resources
The Liberal bloc candidate Mohsen was elected to the Minister position of Water Resources....that is the good news from their efforts yesterday.
Parliament rejects the nomination of strange and Al Jabri to take over the Interior and Defense
Interior Minister lost with only 117 votes out of 285....and Defense Minister lost with only 108 votes out of 285.....not enough for either of them to be approved.....better luck next time.
Parliament Website: House gives confidence to the Minister of Water Resources and completed sworn in for a number of MPs and ministers
Basically saying similar as others already posted.....neither Defense or Interior Ministers approved.....perhaps this will change as of Thursday....the next target date for Parliament.
National Guard and Budget presiding over the agenda of the Council of Ministers
The COM (Council of Ministers) held their weekly meeting today.....and the upcoming National Guard and budget were on their agenda today.....this is the second meeting of Abadi's new COM.
