chattels  " ............ for the first time in many decades there is real hope for Iraq."

chattels  " ............ the optimism about Iraq is not baseless. It is always good to have an optimistic outlook, but there are genuine indicators that the hope about Iraq’s future is realistic."
​chattels     " The first indicator is that regardless of Iraq’s current situation, Iraq had and still has a lot of potential. "

chattels     " The second important indicator is that for the first time, there seems to be a direction the country is moving towards, and it is not downwards."

chattels      " The third important indicator is that Iraq is showing leadership."

 chattels     Government of Iraq

@IraqiGovt    Eligible Iraqi citizens overseas will be able to exercise their democratic right and cast their vote in Iraq’s parliamentary elections at 136 election centers in 19 countries


chattels     The results show a number of key findings:

chattels     Some 60% of people overall support a second term for Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi. His popularity is highest in the three liberated provinces of Ninewa, Salahadin and Anbar. Even in the Kurdistan Region, Al-Abadi enjoys support from over 50% of those interviewed.

chattels      The popularity of Haider Al-Abadi’s Victory coalition consistently ranks highest among the competing lists with 24% of the vote share, while there is a close race for second place among Moqtada Al-Sadr’s Sa’iroon coalition and Hadi Al-Ameri’s Conquest alliance.

Meanwhile, Nouri Al-Maliki’s State of Law appears to be far less popular in Baghdad than it was in the 2014 elections, and will likely pick up most of its seats from the southern provinces including Karbala and Basra, where Maliki still retains a strong support base.

chattels     The popular vote as to a favored coalition is decidedly for Abadi's Victory list. Three to one as to Sadr and Ameri and almost 5 to 1 as to Maliki / State of Law.

chattels    Six (6) days remaining until the election.
chattels   Abadi will win, it's just a matter of how many seats. Being PM and forming a government is another issue though Sajad Jiyad سجاد @SajadJiyad

KJWayne    Elections May 12. Results ,they say, electronically ,2 hours after the polls close. Others say it will take TWO DAYs to find out WHO won ! IT IS IRAQ ! I guess it makes sence to wait and be sure who is control before any rate increases occur. IMO !

KJWayne     Back to the DINAR, I'm ready to move on to bigger and better things. Middle east can handle themselves.

chattels    Compliance with the 2 % began about 45 days ago and has remained so arguably depending upon which news article one reads or the bourse one follows. There are anomalies and there is no "official " parallel rate sourece.
