And awaits Parliament a draft law developed by the government to be compared with his project in order to avoid an appeal in the event of approval on the grounds that the bills should come from the government first.
EDUCATION: PLEASE READ THIS PARAGRAPH TO UNDERSTAND THE OBLIGATIONS OF THE HOUSE OF REPS AND THE FED COUNCIL~RL~
Article 48 of the Constitution provides that «the legislative branch consists of the House of Representatives and the Federation Council», while Article 65 on «create a legislative council called the Federation Council includes representatives of the regions and governorates that are not organized in a region, and regulates the composition, membership conditions, and terms of reference, and all that it involves, the law enacted with a majority of two-thirds of the members of the House of Representatives.
A member of the legal committee in Parliament MP Mustafa nice for the «life» that «a joint committee comprising members of the Committees legal and Tcetkmlan provinces formulate a draft law on the formation of the Federation Council after directed to speed up adoption by parliament.
He pointed out that «the bill has a first reading last year but postponed due to the objection recorded by the Federal Court on some of the paragraphs that have been avoided now, and pointed out that« the bill reached the final stages and will be presented for the second reading soon.
PRIME EXAMPLE OF WHY THE FEDERAL COURT LAW IS SO IMPORTANT. ALL THESE REPS TRYING TO GET LAWS PASSED ONLY TO BE VOIDED BY THE FEDERAL COURT. THEY HAVE TO MUCH POWER. THE REPS ARE TRYING TO APPROVE LAWS FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY IN THE BEST INTEREST OF DEMOCRACY. YET YOU HAVE A DICTATOR VIA THE JUDICIAL BRANCH. THEREFORE, WHAT GOOD IS IT TO HAVE A PARLIAMENT? ~RL~
He explained that «Parliament awaits the arrival of a copy of the law that must be provided by the government for compliance with the project and unification to prevent challenged because of prior opinion of the Federal Court imposed laws that come from the government.
VALIDATION OF WHAT I STATED ABOVE. WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO? ~RL~
And the powers of the Board, Chairman of the Committee of the Regions and the provinces MP Mohammed Kayani told «life» that «the Union Council will have veto power over laws and regulations issued by the parliament and the government in the event which saw irregularities.
WHAT I AM AFRAID HERE, IS THAT 'IRREGULARITIES' MAY BE IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER. FOR EXAMPLE, MALIKI'S EYE. WHICH MEANS THEY CAN PRETTY MUCH TRUMP UP ANYTHING THEY WANT IMO ~RL~
He pointed out that «the most prominent of those laws that are entitled to the Federation Council revoked those of the provinces and territories», explained that «the members of the Federation Council will choose from the provinces and will have the power to reject any legislation limiting the powers of the provinces finally approved by the parliament.
"LIMITING THE POWER OF THE PROVINCES".. I WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT "WHO" EVERY MEMBER OF THE FEDERATION COUNCIL IS AND WHAT POLITICAL BLOCS THEY BELONG TO. THIS COULD GIVE US INSIGHT AS TO WHAT DIRECTION WE CAN EXPECT THEM TO TAKE. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IF THE FEDERATION COUNCIL IS IN THE JUDICIARY POCKET THEREFORE MALIKI'S AS WELL ~RL~
He added that «for the Board of Control ensure the rights of regions and governorates that are not organized in a region in the fair participation in the administration of the various federal state institutions, and provide ideas for projects relating rights and provinces to the House of Representatives.
Kayani pointed out that «'s 18 provinces each of which will have four representatives with the exception of the capital, which some people call up their representation, in addition to the demands of the allocation of quota for minorities and women.
He pointed out that «the members of the Federation Council meet the conditions of Representatives in terms of filtration and provisions and the legal status and immunity, and pointed out that« the current differences concerning ways to choose and composition of the council members.
DEPENDING ON WHO HAS THE MOST SEATS, THIS COULD BE THE ONLY SAVING GRACE PERHAPS~RL~
And a preliminary draft of the bill, of «the powers of the Council set aside some of the laws it deems inappropriate and therefore returned to the council and if Parliament could vote by two-thirds of the members of this law shall take effect, while the Federation Council can not enact laws, but offers suggestions.
OK, SO HERE IS SAYS THE FEDERATION COUNCIL CAN ONLY OFFER "SUGGESTIONS" TO PARLIAMENT~RL~
In addition, MP on the mass of the «rule of law» Ihsan al-Awadi, the need for a national consensus on the draft law «Federation Council», pointed out that «the Constitution stipulates that the passing of this law needs to Thelthlee number of deputies any 218 deputies out of 325».
SO AFTER ALL THAT ANALYSIS I JUST DID, I GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE ONLY TO FIND OUT THEY NEED TO REACH A CONSENSUS TO AGREE ON EVEN HAVING A "FEDERATION COUNCIL"!!! PERHAPS THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THE ARTICLE?? Ya think??? ~RL~
He added that «the bill of sensitive topics and needs to be compatibility. Parliament postponed the second reading last week to إنضاجه the previous passed ».

Najiba Najib: government to take measures to support the exchange rate of the dinar does not represent the policy of the central bank intervention
14-07-2013 10:45 AM
Baghdad (news) .. A member of the Finance Committee MP / Kurdistan Alliance / Najeebeh Najib, that the government take urgent measures to strengthen the Iraqi dinar is not considered the work of the central bank intervention, stressing that the current laws are not commensurate with the policy of the free market economy.
Najib said (of the Agency news): to strengthen the Iraqi dinar is not only the responsibility of the central bank, but its responsibility rests with all relevant institutions and the Iraqi state, indicating that Iraq needs a strong economy and a strong currency.
º Najib seems to be educated. YES Iraq already has a STRONG currency because it is backed by 32 TONS of GOLD along with other assets. HOWEVER, their economy really needs to grow and EXPAND. They have to have a larger VARIETY of economic sources besides oil. I know we do not concentrate much at Dinar Updates on the money side. This site is more politically driven it seems. BUT, in my opinion, that is only PART of the picture. I DO AGREE the political situation is very important and needs to be stabilized. I like to follow the money, the economy side of things as this, dear folks, is where their RATE of currency will be determined. Their economy MUST GROW in more areas than just oil. I look at other areas of growth such as agriculture and natural mineral mines.. Take all of this into account and realize this is why the TARIFF laws are so important. YES, they have tariff laws. HOWEVER, they are operating tariff laws that are from the dinosaur era. They are STILL doing their exporting and importing MANUALLY. They are working on upgrading their tariff system now to bring them up to GLOBAL STANDARDS, WTO STANDARDS.. this is going to take educating people just like they had to educate people for the electronic banking systems they put in place and are STILL putting in place in the local private banks. ~ RL ~
She added: there must be urgent action and strategic plans by the government to strengthen the economy, without a strong economy and produce local and directed state can not strengthen the Iraqi dinar.
>STRENGTHENING the DINAR means it is backed by STRONG ASSETS and a STRONG ECONOMY... However noting their economy needs to be more diversified~ RL ~
She pointed out: that the legislation window does not fit with a free market economy, nor with the government on plans to strengthen the economy, noting that strengthen the to ايطبق the dinar in a short period but need a set of procedures and a package of laws to get the desired results.
º > Package of LAWS: SHE is acknowledging they are not passing the most important laws that are NEEDED TO grow their economy in this statement. CAN YOU NAME THE LAWS NEEDED? ~ RL ~
It is noteworthy that the Iraqi Central Bank is responsible for monetary policy and there is a tendency for the integration work between the central bank and the government to raise the purchasing power of the Iraqi dinar. / End / 5. H. P /
º To raise the PURCHASING POWER OF THE DINAR, the GOVERNMENT should be creating the jobs to extract minerals from the mines and grow their agriculture among other areas.. The CBI can only maintain a correct monetary policy.. ECONOMY is KEY IMO ~ RL ~
