TNT Dinar Conference Call w/Rayren98


Interest rates for deposits and loans and bond yields have remained relatively steady since the end of January, as inflation is under control and foreign exchange rate is stable.
These are the findings of the latest survey on interest rates done by HCM City Securities Company (HSC). Currently, interest rates for đồng deposits are 4.5 to 5.4 per cent for one- to six-month terms; 5.4 to 6.5 per cent for six- to below-12-month terms; and 6.4 to 7.2 per cent a year for more than 12 months.
The đồng lending rates average 6 to 7 per cent per year for short-term loans, and 9 to 10 per cent a year for medium- and long-term loans in priority fields. The average rate for ordinary loans is 6.8 to 9 per cent a year for short term, and 9.3 to 11 per cent a year for medium- and long-term loans.

The yields of the Government’s five-year, seven-year, 20-year and 30-year bonds are 5.03, 5.35, 7 and 7.55 per cent a year, respectively. The consumer price index in May slid 0.53 per cent against the previous month, according to the General Statistics Office, suggesting that inflation would not rise in the short term. Together with the stable foreign exchange rate, it has helped keep interest rates stable in the first part of 2017, HSC said. HSC expects the devaluation of the đồng against the dollar to be less than 2 per cent this year. 

The dollar has strengthened against the đồng by 1 per cent in the first five months. Interest rates, especially of deposits, may inch down over the next few months, HSC said, adding that credit growth might exceed the 16 per cent target, helping the GDP meet the 6.7 per cent growth target set for 2017. Nguyễn Hoàng Minh. deputy director of the State Bank of Việt Nam’s HCM City branch, has also forecast that interest rates for the rest of the year may decline by 0.5-1 percentage points against December 2016, if the đồng remains stable. Last week, market research company Market Intello also predicted that the average interest rate this year would drop by 0.5 percentage points compared to 2016.

 It expects the exchange rate to increase by 1-1.5 per cent as the US Federal Reserve’s plans to raise rates and trade deficit may raise the demand for US dollars much more than in 2016. However, it does not expect the đồng to be depressed further, as inflation is well under control at below 4 per cent and the central bank has abundant foreign reserves. — VNS
Iran, US set for proxy clash on Syrian-Iraqi Border As the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) continue their operations in the western areas of Mosul, some PMU factions reached the Syrian border May 29 and were met by Syrian army divisions on the other side of the border. According to the May 29 statements of Hadi al-Ameri, secretary-general of the PMU-affiliated Badr Organization, PMU forces are stationed in the Um Jaris village on the Iraqi-Syrian border, northwest of the Ninevah governorate. The forces announced that they intend to continue to control the Iraqi-Syrian border toward al-Qaim district, north of the Anbar governorate, stretching over 300 kilometers (186 miles). 

International coalition aircraft had previously bombed a convoy of the Syrian army and armed loyalists near the border triangle between Iraq, Syria and Jordan, according to Abu Alaa al-Walai, secretary-general of the Martyrs of Sayyid Battalions, affiliated with the PMU. “The US aircraft bombed Friday night, May 19, PMU forces in the area of Abu Kamal, near the Iraqi-Syrian border,” Walai said. As the Syrian government headed by Bashar al-Assad prepares to exert influence over the Iraqi-Syrian border with the help of its allies in Iraq and Iran, the opposition armed groups seek to do the same with the support of the international coalition. The border area between Iraq and Syria will turn into a conflict zone between the allies of Tehran and those of Washington. 

Ahmad al-Asadi, a PMU spokesman, told Al-Monitor, “The PMU forces will mobilize to secure the Iraqi-Syrian border and then shut it down to prevent the infiltration of terrorist groups.” Asadi expects a possible clash between the Iraqi regular forces supported by the PMU with what he called “terrorist groups, controlling an area of 100 kilometers [62 miles] inside the Syrian border.” “If we do not attack these groups, they will simply attack us first. This is when the clash will occur as we will protect our border, as we believe that the presence of these groups inside the Syrian border will pose a threat to Iraq,” Asadi added.

 On April 7, Al-Monitor published an article regarding Iraq’s readiness to enter into the Syrian war. In the same vein, Wahhab al-Tai, adviser to the Iraqi interior minister, told Radio Sawa on May 15, “Iraq will not only defend its borders from within but will reach some areas beyond its borders to prevent the infiltration of terrorist gangs, especially from Syria.” “There is security cooperation between Iraq and Syria in this regard, within the framework of the security quartet, which also includes Russia and Iran,” Tai added. Iraq laid out a military plan to secure its border with Syria. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said during a press conference May 9, “Iraq’s plan in the next phase is securing the Iraqi-Syrian border from terrorist groups.” Iraqi national security adviser Faleh al-Fayyad, Abadi’s envoy to Syria and head of the PMU, confirmed to Almayadeen TV Feb. 8 that “the PMU is securing the Syrian-Iraqi border.” 

Fayyad also relayed a verbal message from Abadi to Assad on May 18 about joint cooperation to fight terrorism in both countries and to secure the border between the two countries. The PMU — which is fighting alongside the Iraqi government forces — seeks to reach and take control of the border between Iraq and Syria. This comes against the wishes of the United States. The movement of the Syrian government forces toward the southern border indicates that they intend to get close to the al-Tanf base located in the area between Syria, Jordan and Iraq, where the United States trains Free Syrian Army (FSA) elements. Retired Lebanese army Brig. Gen. Elias Hanna said in an interview with Al-Ghad Al-Arabi television May 12, “The US wants to control the Iraqi-Syrian border.” A member of the FSA media office told Almodan newspaper on May 19 that “the Syrian government and Iran seek to control the crossings of al-Tanf and al-Walid to open a channel between Iran and Syria through Iraq. This would spell great clashes on the Iraq-Syria border.

” The United States wants to prevent any contact between Iran and the Syrian government that could facilitate the supply of arms from Tehran to Damascus through Iraqi territory, and this is why it exerts all possible efforts to prevent the PMU and the Syrian government from controlling the borders between the two countries. The borders between Iraq and Syria will not be turned into a safe zone anytime soon. 

This will be subject to major negotiations between the two concerned countries, as well as between the United States and Iran. The United States seeks to ward off all threats against its military base in al-Tanf and keep away all forces from the borders, except for the forces it backs. Iran also wants its allied forces to take care of the Iraqi-Syrian border issue because it still wants to open a land crossing linking Iraqi-Iranian borders in eastern Iraq to the Iraqi-Syrian border in western Iraq. This issue that Washington and Tehran have been fighting over will place Abadi in an embarrassing position. 

Abadi does not want to anger or marginalize the PMU, but he also does not want to lose his US ally, as he seeks to prevent the PMU from having the last say on the border issue. A military conflict over the Iraqi-Syrian border between the allies of Tehran and those of Washington is on hold now because of the ongoing military operations in Mosul. However, it seems this conflict is inevitable and likely to erupt after the liberation of the district of Tal Afar in the Ninevah governorate. Source

RayRat Call Notes 6/5/17

TNT Call notes 5-June-2017

Replay: 641.715.0623, PIN CODE 409029#


RayRen: Good afternoon, super-fantastic TNT family! Today is Marvelous Monday, June 5, 2017, with RayRat98 at the controls. Maybe this will be the last call like this…

Still no public release of the RV, which should have happened some time ago. Things happen according to plan, and sometimes plans change… so this RV is coming out at a later date than we expected.

I did sent out an update over the weekend, and you can read that without being a member of TNT – it’s in the public section ofhttp://www.leagle.com/decision/20091289612avfsupp2d677_11242/U.S.%20v.%20RENFROW ; click on forum button, and that will take you to the public section. That will be important here shortly, that anyone can gain access to that folder where I post information.

Over the weekend, Iraqi television showed their leaders claiming victory this week. TV stations were banned from reporting the news in Mosul. If I can’t control you, I can ban you from access to the site – is something similar happening over there. Abadi is filling the Finance Minister’s seat until a new one is selected, so that won’t interrupt the process. Iraqis have been informed that their payments will be paid directly from 30. June instead of being put in escrow. Also, they are talking about celebrations for the soldiers on June 12, which should mean that the fighting is over – cleaned up, past tense. June 10 is the anniversary of ISIL taking over Mosul, so there is a symbolic significance for that being the official date they are finished with the liberation of Mosul. We don’t really know how much is left in Mosul – half a district? Clearly it’s no longer an issue there.

In addition, in the US members have been making reports that groups have been getting calls about movement. We are not in a group, but that is still encouraging. If you are in a group and can share information, that helps us build up a pretty good picture, without details of that group activity. I understand that some banks that didn’t believe what we are believe now believe, and are making changes to accommodate what is to come. Some of you have assignments to check on things so we can accumulate that information and be prepared. We are waiting for that information and appreciate those members and their efforts in sending us that information.

Questions from the TNT forum

Q: I did home work and there are no banks that I can find in Upstate New York that handle the three currencies. Will that change when r/v happens?
A: Yes. For those who did the assignment, there is no guarantees that the news will be positive – but if it is positive, please let us know. Otherwise, just sit on your hands.

Q: I would like to know your thoughts on the Zim?
A: I’m very positive when it comes to Zim. I don’t have full, definitive information; some members have exchanged Zim, and others have had offers they didn’t take because the rate was too low. I cannot answer specific questions about zeros, but I think it’s good; I have one or two notes myself, and if it doesn’t turn out to be good, at least I didn’t spend much getting it.

Q: Ray, your excitement level has been on TEN for a couple of weeks now and if memory serves me correctly you mentioned June 10 as a date that should have some substance to it. Did anything happen over the weekend that you can share that may have us shouting with you prior to that date?
A: NO. Nothing’s happened over the weekend, although I was told something was going to happen apart from the possible celebrations scheduled for June 12, which is next Monday. Some are focused on June 10, now we have celebrations on June 12, and some are focused on June 30. I can’t see having celebrations on the 12th and then waiting until the 30th for release. But it’s all about June!

Q: Ray, I watched a you tube about the economy and fiat money. In the you tube was a segment about how other countries fiat money have in the past nose-dived, come back to a value, acknowledged by the International monetary fund BUT no bank would exchange that currency for an individual with some in hand. How do we know that this may not happen with our Dinar??
A: Don’t worry about it. I can’t say more on this all with 20,000 listening. But don’t worry about it. We’ll just cross that bridge when we come to it, and by then we will have so much more information.

Live Q and A

865/470 caller: Our media is starting to focus on Qatar; do you know what Iraqis feel about this? I know Shabouri was in Qatar meeting with their Finance Minister.

RayRen: I have nothing yet – no mention of it. I don’t request information because they know what we want, to come to the conclusions we are looking for. They leave out some information because it’s not relevant to us. They keep saying “It’s done, it’s done, it’s done!”

Caller: Regardless of specific dates, “June is busting out all over!” as the song says.

423 caller: Hve they been saying anything about monetary reform. They’ve been talking about Mosul – do you think they go hand in hand?

RayRen: They have been saying economic reforms and national reconciliation are supposed to follow immediately on the full liberation of Mosul. I don’t see how they can put it off any longer; I don’t see it going past June 30th.

Caller: This is our week, and could be our day! [RR: Could be!]

407 caller: Are there any current openings to Open Mic, and can I have access?

RayRen: I’ll have to check, but you’d be on a long waiting list.

610 caller: Please send your donations by mail to Ray Renfrow, PO Box 1748, Elm City NC 27822; that address is also on www.tntsuperfantastic.com, on the donation page. Please do that today because mail takes longer, to keep the lines and site open.

206 caller: It’s my birthday – what a great present this would make!

RayRen: [Birthday music]

712 caller: My birthday is on 10. June, and A psychic told me that the 10th is a money day, and I’m looking forward to helping our kids get back on their feet. A lot of us are going to help different organizations. I am a twin and we will take a double shot on this on Saturday. Is there Open Mic on Saturday? [RR: Yes} I’ll tune in then.

507 caller: There is a post on DinarDetectives that talks about a $1.20 value for the dinar…

RayRen: That’s not mine. I never said anything about $1.20 value; it’s someone else.

Caller: You mentioned that date we were expecting did not occur, and now we are looking at June 30?

RayRen: Some are saying the 10th, some are seeing celebrations on the 12th, and other are saying by June 30, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

TX caller: [chitchat]

Next caller: I’m talking to dozens of banks to get as much verification as we can. I had an interesting conversation with the folks at WF – they are focused on the dong, where you have the currency verified at the branch, and then a secondary verification at a call center, and if there is a discrepancy, they want the option of a charge back from your account. That doesn’t make sense to me.

RayRen: So take your currency to a different bank.

972 caller: About the three zeros, have you ever seen an article about that?

RayRen: About the dinar? We’ve seen that come up, back and forth, now back up for discussion. I don’t believe that will affect us, anyway.

401 caller: Any of the mosques involved with these events/announcements?

RayRen: Nothing lately.

Caller: Have you received any positive feedback on the homework with the banks?

RayRen: I’m still waiting for those reports to come in; it’s still early Monday morning on the West Coast. I will post the results.

Next caller: First time on this line… [Appreciation] I am ready for that day! Do you really believe that we will get this in June?

RayRen: Yes, I am expecting that.

Closing Statement

There are two things I want you to adhere to when this pops, which we expect this to happen any time. Some information has been held back, but we are truly expecting this to arrive. I was in chat this morning, and some people were giving up, tired of waiting, and the minute this goes, they will rush and do everything. And then go on to …what? So take these two words and put them in the front of your mind, put it on your fridge, ,and in your rearview mirror: SLOW DOWN. When this light turns green, we should be in no rush, unless you want contract rates. When the light turns green, sit down and assess the situation. We need to exchange the currency – what do we need to achieve that. Unless you want the contract rate, it’s better to sit and wait for the rate to appreciate – then make your move. What do you have to do that you haven’t already taken care of? Some are looking at foreclosures; others have been through that, and they can tell you want to expect. When the green light goes, all you have to do is make it current, and then assess what you need to do next. Or get a loan to handle that, and then let your money go to work. Some have a tendency to rush out and buy stuff or pay it off in cash, with no patience. You need to look at how to set this money to work for you. A while back, we put together a little handbook about paying with cash: www.bit.ly/payingwithcash and this will teach you about ‘lost opportunities’. Whatever you rush to pay for, once you spend that money it is gone. So we want to maximize getting every ounce of value out of each dollar before it leaves you. What does it cost you when you pay with cash? Read the article, look it over and consider the possibilities. This article looks at buying a 400K house, paying cash so that you don’t have to worry about anyone taking it from you. If you don’t have the proper cashflow to support the taxes and utilities, you will lose it in the end. So it’s not just about paying cash for the property; peace of mind comes from having an income stream to support it. The 400K is just the upfront cost, plus you lost the opportunity to make money from financing it at low interest. For some it’s possible to have a 2% mortgage payment. So the example shows the 400K being invested at 8% return, and the difference between the two is something like $420K. On a smaller scale, think about cars, if you have the cash and don’t want to deal with payments, but 100K invested at @10% means 10K per year – you could make the payments from that income, and still have the capital. There are going to be banks offering you CDs at 10%, so what do you think will also be out there with interest rates higher than CDs? They will be commonplace then, although they are rare today. They do exist, and more will exist; all you have to do is to slow down: listen, learn, conquer.

Our task force team had a revival over the weekend, to get their juices flowing again and be ready to move on a moment’s notice. Everyone else has to slow down. We don’t know the minute, hour, or day, but it is coming, and they needed to check their arrangements and be ready. The bankers will come out and let you know what they offer and how to do business with them. The first mouse people will come out and get their contract rates, and arrange loans and such to rescue their affairs; t hat will come back to the network and you can learn from it. Until it’s time, there will be banking seminars, specialized training sessions, and the network information. We are waiting for that green light. The best of us will WAIT as we create the road of life; the rest of us will meet down the road.

We will just wait for the rest to unfold. Iraqi television says this is their week, and we are waiting for PM Abadi to proclaim the liberation of Mosul. As the song says, “It’s already done”. We just keep holding on; we’re going to get there.

Dinar Updates Sunday Late PM Chat 6-4-17

Dinar Updates Sunday Late PM Chat   6-4-17  

subgirl says():ERBIL, Kurdistan Region –
The head of the Kurdistan Region’s Security Council and the president’s chief of staff met with the Iraqi prime minister in Baghdad on Sunday to discuss ongoing security coordination.

In their meeting, they discussed how the trust and harmony between the Iraqi forces and the Peshmerga led to quick defeat of ISIS “and this cooperation will be the start of a more understanding relationship between the central government and the Region in the future,” read a statement from the prime minister’s office.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi received Chancellor Masrour Barzani and Chief of Staff Fuad Hussein in Baghdad on Sunday.
They discussed “the anti-ISIL campaign and cooperation between Peshmerga and the Iraqi army,” Barzani tweeted following the meeting.

They also discussed relations between Erbil and Baghdad in general. “[W]e reiterated need for an honest dialogue to address broader differences through peaceful means and a mechanism that respects the aspirations of Iraq’s communities and guarantees a prosperous future underpinned by trust and stability for all groups,” Barzani stated on Twitter.

Their visit comes shortly after Barzani and Hussein met with high-level Washington officials on a trip to the United States.

Peshmerga and Iraqi army cooperation in Mosul offensive to defeat ISIS in northern Iraq has been widely hailed as an important step in building relations between them. Describing it as the first time the Iraqi and Kurdish forces have shed blood together, Barzani said last October, “We hope it’s a good start to create a bright future for both sides.”

The semi-autonomous Kurdistan Region intends to hold a referendum on independence this year. Kurdish leaders have said they hope to resolve problems with Baghdad through peaceful discussion.

subgirl says():New York Times: Three US companies are preparing to invest in international roads in Iraq

subgirl says():2017/06/04 (00:01 PM) - Number of readings: 158 - Number (3940)

The road runs from Baghdad to Amman through Anbar province across the western desert of Iraq. The land is seen by insurgents and truck drivers are risking these days. However, the future view of the United States may be similar to the New Jersey State Road Service Station There are recreation areas, cafés and kiosks along the way.

As part of a US effort to boost economic development in Iraq and ensure that activity in the country after the war against a pro-US organization, the US government brokered a deal between Iraq and Olive Group, a private security firm, to secure the country's first major road.

The project quickly took place in the midst of geopolitical and sectarian tensions and tensions between the United States and Iran, which seem determined to sabotage the highway project as a sign of US influence on its doorstep.

Earlier, Iraqi leaders linked to Iran appeared to be reflecting Tehran's views, pledging to resume attacks against US troops if Trump's administration decided to leave troops behind to train the Iraqi army and carry out anti-terrorism missions that seemed likely. These leaders were particularly vocal in their criticism of the highway project.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, who sought to promote the highway deal, has been caught in the middle of the tension by positioning himself closer to the United States at a time when Iran's influence has become more prominent in Iraq.

The politician, Izzat al-Shabandar, a prominent Shiite leader and former parliament member, The main opposition of the highway project. Stressing that the Iraqi factions close to Iran are more powerful than the Iraqi army.
Shabandar said he expected Iran to eventually remove Abadi from power once the project is completed.

First, it will boost economic development in Anbar province, a vast Sunni majority that has suffered from marginalization. The other purpose is to undermine Iran's influence in Iraq, which has reached the alarm bells. Sunni Arab states have a US ally like Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

Abbadi has granted this development to Oluf Group, although the final details are still being studied. The project will include repairing bridges in the western province of Anbar, renovating the highway, building service stations, and rest areas and roadside cafes. It will also include the provision of mobile security services by private contractors to travelers on the road.

Abadi, in an interview, denounced the "mafiyat" which runs the road, referring to militias and armed groups that intimidate drivers and take bribes to secure their passage. Neither the central government nor the local government will pay anything, but instead we will get benefits.

"The deal is estimated to last for 25 years and is known as a concession agreement, meaning the government does not spend money as a prelude. In theory, the multimillion-dollar investment to be implemented by Ulf Group will be reimbursed by fees, a deduction partly for the Iraqi government.

subgirl says():There is discussion of the eventual establishment of three other fast-paced investment routes in Iraq run by US companies: the first runs along the Saudi border via Karbala to Baghdad, the second from Basra to Baghdad and the third from the Syrian border to Baghdad.

Many media outlets in Iraq linked to Iranian-backed figures have dealt with the highway deal as a conspiracy by the United States and Israel to occupy the country.

One of the reports claimed that the US security company responsible for implementing the highway project "belongs to the Israeli Mossad." A statement by one of the powerful militias cited the Sykes-Picot agreement signed between the colonial powers to divide the Middle East during the First World War and talks about the highway project, By the United States to divide Iraq.

By playing the strings of painful memories and fears Iraqis have seen, media outlets have also falsely reported that Blackwater, the private security company that killed innocent people in Baghdad's Nisour Square during the US occupation in 2007, was the one to take over the project.

"The political situation in this country is full of challenges. We hope that the Iraqi people and the Jordanian people will look at this project," said Christjian Runo, executive vice president of Constellations, the parent company of Ulf Group, a security company that has worked for many years in Iraq. Built for him and a resource of my economic life. "

subgirl says():During the booming and safe periods, the highway from Baghdad to Amman was an important trading channel, with 1,500 truckloads a day passing through the road, generating $ 1 billion in commercial revenue a month, he said.

In dangerous times, as in recent years, the official border crossing with Jordan has been closed, but truck drivers have continued to use the road and put their lives in their hands.

While the main cities of Anbar province, such as Ramadi and Falluja, have been liberated from an advocacy organization, the surrounding deserts on the western side of the road to Jordan and Syria are still considered dangerous and uncontrolled areas, where armed militants are still moving freely. 
On the other hand, The project provides thousands of construction and security jobs for Anbar province and tribal leaders have lined up to support it.

"We are very happy with this project," said Sheikh Ahmed Taha Alwan, a prominent tribal leader in Anbar, adding: "There is great hope that this project will bring benefit to the province in two important security and economic aspects."

subgirl says():US-led coalition establishes new military base on Syria-Iraq border

subgirl says():US-led international coalition announced a new military base had been erected at the Syrian-Iraqi border, well informed sources told The Baghdad Post Sunday.

This comes amid severe battles against ISIS terror group in the regions still held by the terrorist group in Iraq.

Iran-allied militias, known as IMIS, have recently sought to open a safe corridor towards the Iraqi-Syrian borders.

Analysts say the move comes upon the instructions on the Mullah's regime in Iran to back the Assad regime in Syria.

subgirl says():Yazidi Iraqis call for int'l peacekeeping force
June 04 2017 09:20 PM

Yazidis in Iraq have called for an international peace keeping mission in their districts, The Baghdad Post reported Sunday.

In a press conference, MP from the Yazidi constituent Haji Kandoor al-Sheikh said, "As representatives for the Yazidi constituent, we have been calling since Aug. 2014 in all international and regional events for an international peacekeeping force to protect the rights of minorities".

Al-Sheikh stressed Yazidis had lost confidence in the Iraqi forces that left them in the lurch when their territories had been stormed by ISIS terrorists.
​"We completely lost confidence in the Iraqi forces. They abandoned us when ISIS stormed our regions in 2014," he added.

"The US-led international coalition, the United Nations and the European Union are required to send peacekeeping forces to secure civilians' return to their homes," he said.

subgirl says():UNHCR sets deadline for local elections
2017/06/04 (00:01 PM) - Number of readings: 391 - Number (3940)

Baghdad    The Electoral Commission announced that political parties have two weeks to submit lists of candidates for the local elections scheduled for next September.

While calling on the Commission to abide by deadlines set, confirmed that it will prevent the participation of any political entity did not submit lists of candidates within the deadline declared, and did not complete registration as a political party.

UNHCR confirms its readiness to use the "results accelerator" if local elections are to be held on schedule this year.

To link the National Alliance to merge the local parliamentary elections, scheduled for next year, the adoption of the provincial councils law, which is the subject of deep differences between the parliamentary parties.

The Alliance confirms, what revealed (range) previously, the existence of a near political agreement not to extend the current Council of the Commission, in exchange for non-renewal of any member of the current Council.

A meeting of the Electoral Commission Council, held on May 31, and reviewed a copy of it yesterday, approved the receipt of lists of candidates for political parties approved by the Board of Commissioners, to participate in the provincial elections 2017 effective 1/6/2017 until The end of the official working day for Monday, 12/6.

The decisions of the meeting provided that the political parties granted a license to establish during the period referred to the submission of lists of candidates to participate in provincial elections.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi announced earlier this year the date of September 16 as the date for holding local elections. But the difference of blocs on the law of local elections, and the fate of the Electoral Commission, whose mandate expires next September, make commitment to this date difficult.

Until now, the blocs have not decided to merge the local and parliamentary protests, but the circles are talking about an undeclared agreement.
"The time limits set by the election commission to receive lists of party candidates, which have been approved to participate in the provincial elections, are sufficient," said Srbst Mustafa, chairman of the Electoral Commission.

"The deadline will be the last of the parties and entities that did not get a leave of establishment to complete their procedures during the specified period," adding that "any party did not submit

subgirl says():"The deadline will be the last of the parties and entities that did not get a leave of establishment to complete their procedures during the specified period," adding that "any party did not submit candidates during this period will not participate in the provincial elections Scheduled for next September. "

On the possibility of holding a local ballot, the Chairman of the Council of the Commission that "it is up to the Presidency of the Council of Ministers and the Parliament to determine the date of provincial elections or merge through the legislation of a law to determine these times and dates,

" noting that "the date of local elections is dependent on the amendment of the law of elections Councils Provinces and its adoption in parliament. "

And delayed the differences between the components of the province of Kirkuk vote on the law of provincial elections for more than once.

The components of Kirkuk are divided between parties that want to hold local elections according to the mechanism stipulated by the law submitted by the government.

This trend is represented by Kurdish parties and allied parties. The other Kirkuk parties are demanding the enactment of a special law to organize elections for the provincial council. Which is the opinion of the Arab and Turkmen components and some other minorities.

The Speaker of the House of Representatives Salim al-Jubouri introduced, in April, a book to the Electoral Commission confirmed that the provincial ballot could not be held on time for not receiving the necessary financial allocations, and not to amend the provincial councils law.

"The political parties, if they abide by these new terms and periods, will be able to hold provincial elections in September without any obstacles or problems," he said. "All preparations are available, existing and existing."

On the completion of logistical preparations, such as the registration of biometrics and electronic voting devices, the senior official in the Electoral Commission said that "the results of the accelerator will reach the first meal in mid-July and will enter the special ballot for the provincial council."

 "These devices will be sufficient for all the electoral stations because there is an exception to the provinces of Nineveh, Kirkuk and the Kurdistan region from the holding of local elections."

In February, the election commission revealed its intention to replicate South Korea's experience in election administration by contracting 59,000 units to switch to "electronic voting", speeding vote counting and announcing results within a short time.
