chattels: Baghdad demonstration backs Abadi’s reforms, calls for action against graft By RUDAW
chattels: BAGHDAD, Iraq – Thousands of Iraqis converged on Baghdad’s Tahrir Square on Friday, calling for the country’s judiciary to be replaced and the names of corrupt politicians and officials to be published.
Demonstrators also chanted in support of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s comprehensive plan to cut down the size of the government and rein in excessive spending.
Chants for better basic services, including water and more electricity, were among the demands of those in the crowds. It was the third demonstration since reforms announced by Abadi this month, which include a comprehensive reduction in the number of state officials, from the offices of the president and prime minister down to the provincial councils.
chattels: In addition, some ministries have been combined. According to a statement by Abadi on Sunday, committees to observe and monitor salaries for Iraqi officials are being formed
The proposal also includes fiscal reforms in taxation and the government revenue system.
The upper limits of retired officials’ pensions are to be lowered, as are customs tariffs imposed at all border crossing points, including in the Kurdistan region.
Another initiative is to set up an Anti-Corruption Council and a “where did you get this” campaign to tackle runaway official graft. chattels: rudaw.net/english/middlee...
chattels: Thousands turn out for fresh anti-corruption protests in Baghdad #InsideIraq The protests have been taking place for weeks,
but supporters of Muqtada al-Sadr participated for the first time on Friday MEE and agenciesFriday 28 August 2015 19:23 UTC Thousands of Iraqis once again took to the streets Baghdad's Tahrir Square on Friday to protest rampant corruption in the country.
The crowds included supporters of the powerful Shia cleric and political leader Muqtada al-Sadr for the first time since the protests began earlier this summer.
chattels: At Friday's demonstration, hundreds waved Iraqi flags and chanted anti-corruption slogans in previous weeks, but this time the crowd also included supporters of Sadr, responding to his call to take part.
Sadrists, many of them dressed in black, chanted slogans including "Bye bye Nouri al-Maliki" and called for the ex-prime minister, whose eight years in office were marked by widespread corruption, to be executed.
chattels: However, not all welcome the involvement of Sadr and his supporters. Sadr's party had ministers in Maliki's governments and it still wields significant influence despite the 43-year-old cleric seeking to officially distance himself from politics as he pursues religious studies.
"It is hypocritical and misleading [to say the Sadrists] are with the people," said Iraqi Communist party member Siham al-Zubaidi, noting their strong presence in parliament and the fact that a since-resigned Sadrist deputy premier faces corruption allegations.
chattels: Parliament signed off on Abadi's proposed reforms as well as additional measures, and the prime minister has begun ordered changes, including the scrapping of 11 cabinet posts and for the bloated number of guards for officials to be slashed.
But even with popular support and backing from Sistani, the fact that parties across the political spectrum benefit from corruption is seen as a major obstacle to the nascent reform effort.
