chattels: " ........... scheduled to visit Baghdad next week for talks on oil and budget shares in the 2016 Iraqi budget."
chattels: Next week is THIS week. Also, we were looking for confirmation of the arrival of the budget in Parliament. No news as to either as yet this week.
Winter: ‹@chattels› are you saying it wont happen?
chattels: ‹@Winter› What won't happen ?
Winter: budget approved in parliment
chattels: NO, just observing where we are and are not according to the news I have read.
chattels: I have read of two scenarios with the oil agreement / budget - 1 ) 1 billion per month for 550,000 barrels ( last year's numbers not complied with ) and 2 ) $500 million per month for 150,000 barrels
Winter: thats why news is kinda hard to belive anymore from over there
chattels: We certainly are not going to have a budget agreement by November 1, so Parliament will not recess and will continue through November according to my reading.
chattels: "with the return of the House of Representatives to the capital, Baghdad, on Monday ( past ), the committee will receive a copy of the draft law," pointing out that "The Council will begin the procedures in approving the budget, so read the first and second readings and then vote on them."
chattels: " in the event of a failure to approve the budget during this period, the Council and in accordance with the rules of procedure, will extend the Chapter Legislative for a month in order to complete the adoption of the federal budget law. "
chattels: MY read / take is that if the budget is not voted upon by the 1st that the recess will be will not start on the 1st and the session extended for 30 days to complete adoption of the budget law. No way it can be done in the next 11 days, IMO, so we are into November if the article is accurate. chattels: wealthwatch.world/showthr...
chattels: We only have one (1) " working " day for Parliament left until the 1st of November, tomorrow.
chattels: Two readings and a vote on the budget law cannot be accomplished in one day.
chattels: The Iraqi Parliament / politicians use the media like we do here in the states. Often times the " news " is for popular consumption / effect / propaganda.
chattels: Add rumors and errors and Iraqi news analysis is not an exact science :)

chattels: Diyala province ( Governate ) is east - northeast and contiguous to Baghdad www.google.com/maps/place...
chattels: Diyala Governorate extends to the northeast of Baghdad as far as the Iranian border. Its capital is Baqubah. It covers an area of 17,685 square kilometres (6,828 sq mi).
chattels: The population and the ethnic composition of this province has been in a major state of flux since the Coalition invasion of 2003 and the removal of the Sunni Arab government of Saddam Hussein from Baghdad.
That government and those before it, had all been Sunni Arabs and as such, supportive of the Sunni Arab interests at the expenses of all other ethnic and confessional minorities such as the Shia, Kurds and even Iraqi Turkmen.
This changed drastically starting in 2003. It is now the Sunni Arabs that are exposed to expulsion and loss of house and home all over the province.
chattels: Presently, an estimated population of some 1,224,000 people live in this province. Sunni Arabs, once a solid majority until 2003, have been losing their positions due to violence of the Iraqi Civil War (2006–07) and since summer of 2014, due to resurgent Ba'ath in the company of the ISIS.
Nearly half the Sunni Arab population has been pushed out of the province. Presently, they constitute no more than 40 percent of the population of the Diyala Governorate.
In contrast, the Feyli Kurds who were deported from this area from the 1960 to 1990s by various Sunni Arab governments in Baghdad are returning-as have other Kurds. They now dominate the entire Khanaqin district and all others bordering on Iran in this province.
chattels: The influx of the Shia Arabs has been nothing short of a flood. They basically occupy the house and farms of the fleeing Arab Sunnis. Once only about 30% of the provincial total, they now have around half.
The rest of the residents are Iraqi Sunni Turkmen (around 5%) predominantly in Kifri, but in smaller pockets at Jalawla, Saadia, Miqdadiya and other smaller pockets dispersed around the province.
