June 8, 2018 Mnt Goat News Brief
Hi Everyone,
I bring you much news today.
Okay so here we are over a week into June already. Iraq told the citizens to wait until after the elections to complete the project to delete the zeros. Well it now after the elections. Where is the RV?
If you though they would RV the instant the voting was over, then you’re the nut case. What they meant was for the dust to settle after the elections and to have a good sense of the formation of the next government. Is it going to be a stable govt? Will the elected officials continue with the progress of the Abadi administration from the last 4 years? These are concerns and why they postponed the project anyhow. So why would they not wait and see how it all plays out?
So we are in a very good position now since they just announced yesterday that the majority bloc is now all completed and “official”. Sadr has completed his work in this bloc building. We know he has his candidate for the prime minister picked out. So what next?
Parliament will continue to bully the Election Committee right up until July 1st, when they no longer have any power are disbanded. I see all this as political posturing and one last desperate attempt to save their own hides in trying to put a “monkey wrench” in the workings of the elections process. We know their small piece of obscure legislation to mandate recounting is not going anywhere since the judicial already ruled that they do not have this constitutional power to make such legislation. It can not be enforced.
So if they do any recounting it will not be because Parliament said so. Instead it will be due to legitimate reasons and fully supported by the Electoral Commission and the Judiciary. Anyhow, any recounting will probably only place the outcome more in the favor of Haider al0 Abadi anyhow.

Iraqi sources said Saturday that Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced his break-up with the Islamic Dawa Party because of disagreements with leaders and a second alliance with the Al-Nasr bloc and others led by Moqtada al-Sadr and other political forces.

Iraq is getting close to the 3 month MCP monitoring compliance which ends around mid June. So what next? I am hearing the IMF needs to have it’s Article IV Consultation with Iraq and the formation of the new government before we will see any RV. The Article IV is a good time for the IMF to review the CBI and go over monetary policy, and other issues effecting the banking industry before the CBI writes the letter accepting Iraq formally back into Article VIII. The new government needs to be in place to create political security and this will create an atmosphere for investment. We are getting closer than ever before.

BAGHDAD — Iraq’s top judicial authority on Thursday took over the Independent Elections Commission as stipulated by a law passed by Parliament in response to complaints of widespread fraud in last month’s national elections, according to a statement.
On Wednesday, lawmakers approved amendments to the election law that include annulling results from balloting abroad and camps for displaced people in four Sunni-dominated provinces and call for a manual recount of all ballots.
Supreme Judicial Council spokesman Abdul-Sattar Bayrkdar said the group of top jurists, who are appointed by parliament, will meet on Sunday to select judges who will run the commission and supervise the manual recount requested by the law. Bayrkdar said the council will act in a “fair and impartial way.”

"The commission's board will use its constitutional and legal right to appeal the amendment to the election law because it contains violations and is not in harmony with the constitution," the Independent High Elections Commission's board said in a statement.

(Mnt Goat – this is WOW! news. Now the Central Bank of Iraq can do business with the outside world. Apparently when they told us last year that Iraq was “fully” out of Chapter VII sanctions this was not entirely accurate. But this is fantastic news today. Could this be why they would not let the CBI reinstate the currency up to now? Just asking….)

Iraq's parliament has voted to carry out a manual recount of votes cast in last month's legislative elections, amid allegations of widespread fraud.
MPs also replaced the leadership of the election commission and annulled the votes of overseas and displaced Iraqis.
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned that security agencies had evidence of "unprecedented" violations.
He said the main issue was with the electronic vote-counting machines that were used for the first time on 12 May. IT IS UNCLEAR WHETHER WEDNESDAY'S VOTE WILL AFFECT THE OUTCOME OF THE ELECTION.
The official results gave 54 of the 328 seats in parliament to a nationalist alliance between the Shia Muslim cleric Moqtada Sadr, whose militia once fought US troops, and a number of mostly secular parties.
A bloc linked to Iranian-backed Shia paramilitaries that have battled the jihadist group Islamic State (IS) over the past four years came second with 47 seats, while Mr Abadi's alliance was third with 42 seats.
Mr Abadi told reporters on Tuesday that he had been in favour of accepting the result and working towards the formation of a new government, but that he changed his mind after studying a report by a committee comprising Iraq's security and anti-corruption chiefs.
"In the beginning I said: 'Let's keep going and let the commission deal with the violations.' There are violations each election, here and there."
"The committee has revealed dangerous things, honestly. Yes there may have been some violations by candidates but the election commission bears the largest share of the responsibility," he added.
The prime minister accused members of the Independent High Election Commission (IHEC) of "not taking the needed measures or taking wrong ones", including failing to check the vote-counting machines for errors.
He banned high-ranking IHEC officials from travelling abroad without his approval and said criminal charges might be brought against some individuals.
There was no immediate reaction to Wednesday's parliamentary vote from the IHEC, but it has previously denied that there were widespread irregularities. The election, the first held since the government declared victory over IS in December, saw a low turnout of 44.5% - much lower than in previous polls.
The Alliance of Suron, the National Coalition, and the stream of national wisdom, on Thursday, an agreement on the formation of a coalition of national majority (patriarchal) post-election 2018.
Souron issued the results of the elections with 54 seats, national 21 seats, and wisdom 20 seats, the total of (95 seats) if approved by the Federal Supreme Court, the results of the elections.
The representatives of the three alliances agreed on basic principles of the alliance:

2. Unity of Iraq, adherence to the Constitution, and the consolidation of democracy and public freedoms.
3 - The alliance resulting from the national majority is not limited to the formation of the government only, but continues to build the strategies required by the next phase of the coalition forces formed to the Alliance according to mechanisms to be determined later.

A - economic reforms, the treatment of the state rent, the revitalization of the private sector, and investment development.
B. Decentralization.

In ending I want everyone to know your constant prayers in the fight against evil (ISIS) in Iraq have worked. God has guided these young men and women on the battle field. Let us all now know that there is a new battle now to fight. A battle to save our homelands from the corrupt politicians who are bent on taking what they want from our current wealth and from future generations without our permission. We must keep praying for the end to the rapid corruption in Iraq and in the United States. We must pray for our leaders when they are being guided by the Holy Spirit. We must stand by them and let them know we are still there to support them, even after the election is over. I have composed a prayer maybe we can all pray today in our own way and until the revaluation of the Iraq dinar occurs.
“For the Iraqi Prime Minister and the President of the United States, that all their cabinet members, and deputies may be anointed by the Holy Spirit to do God’s will and bring the free democracies of the Republic of Iraq and the United States of America to the much-deserved prosperity and abundance thru justice and freedom from oppression and corruption. That they may be a shining example for the rest of the middle east and to rest of the world to follow.
In the name of Jesus Christ our King and Savior, Amen”
Auf Wiedersehen
Much love to ya all,
