    This comes at a time when Democratic Movement announced its commitment to St Lego system in the distribution of votes per constituency and open the menu.

    A member of the Legal Committee of the Liberal bloc MP Naji bright "long" that "there are two proposals to amend the election law forward by the Liberals and the Kurdistan Alliance," stressing that "the Commission proposed legal and united in a single proposal."

    Naji said that the state law objected to the amendment of the electoral law and demanded to amend paragraph only نقضتها Federal Court relating to the electoral system and the method of calculating the votes, while the Kurdistan Alliance objected to the opinion of Maliki's coalition and preferred to modify the rest of the paragraphs and not a single paragraph.

    Hilfi confirms that single circuit system commensurate with the situation in Iraq, which suffers identity conflict and the risk of division, noting that the choice of MP on a per circuit basis will result deputy Per Iraq and not to a specific region.

    But an expert on elections, Adel al-Lami said that the open list with one circle is difficult to achieve technically, revealing that the system of "Hundt," he is talking about some not much different from the "St. Lego."

    He said al-Lami in connection with the "long" yesterday that "the system Hundt for the calculation of votes like Saint Lego," noting that "Hundt is counting votes on the numbers odd and even," while "Saint Lego divides the valid votes on individual numbers only." Lami describes "Hundt system as a system for the complexity of calculating the votes."

    Reveals Lami difficult to hold elections on the basis of "open-list and constituency" one, because it would require candidates, many for the whole of Iraq is entitled to voters vote for them from anywhere in Iraq, and perhaps the number of candidates each block then to 650 candidates in a single list, which is twice the number of members the House of Representatives, "325", the Commission will face difficulties in counting the votes. He said al-Lami closed list unconstitutional "because it does not allow voters to know the candidates," revealing at the same time for surrender brings a challenge to the Federal Court system, "St. Lego" because of his failure to determine the "quota" of women and deprive some of the male candidates from getting the job, stressing that he is supposed on polling day a "two boxes for the elections and one for women's quota and the other for the rest of the mixed lists."

    Deputy accuses Kurdish Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister to 'raise sedition'
    20-07-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Erbil: «Middle East»

    Saw Deputy Kurdish «Kurdistan Alliance» that whenever there is a breakthrough in the political crisis in Iraq, especially the normalization of relations between the center and the Kurdistan region, show there are attempts of some people and leaders, to inflame the differences between the political parties, noting that «Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Hussein al-Shahristani, a who seek to sabotage the relationship between the leadership of Kurdistan and the federal government provocative statements come out from time to time.

    The MP longings dry for the Kurdistan Alliance bloc House of Representatives of Iraq in connection with the «Middle East»: «Since the beginning of relations crisis between the governments of the central and regional moving toward more of détente and normalization, and clearly shows the efforts of the parties and their determination to overcome the problems and crises and strive to solve them, we hear Here and there are voices trying to abort efforts of normalization and reconciliation and resolve the outstanding problems between the region and the center, and private statements convulsive fired by Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister for Energy Affairs Hussain al-Shahristani, so I call on the President of the Federal Government Nuri al-Maliki that puts an end to his deputy and his provocative and distribution charges on others and blow up the relationship that moving towards normalization and pacification between the regional and central governments.

    The MP Kurdish: «After the Prime Minister's visit to Kurdistan and the visit corresponding to the regional president Massoud Barzani to Baghdad, there was a breakthrough is important in the relationship between the two parties humans orientation of things towards a solution, understanding and convergence, and the positive atmosphere that prevailed during the recent period require support for continuity so that we can all overcome the our problems and achieve national reconciliation around a lot of the problems faced by Iraqis, but hear such sounds cacophony raises a lot of questions, especially when they come from leading figures in Iraq, which calls for Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to put an end to it, because that would affect already On the positive atmosphere that hangs over the situation in Iraq now. The criticism focused Shahristani's remarks against the leadership of the Kurdistan region on the oil side, as deputy prime minister for energy affairs. Shahristani takes on the Kurdish leaders responsible for exporting large quantities of discovered oil fields in recent years, Kurdish abroad via Turkey and the acquisition of resources, considering that the process of 'smuggling'.

    In the most recent developments in this regard, published yesterday's press reports about the presence of a Turkish company close to the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan holds the transfer of Kurdish oil extracted from the Kurdistan region to European markets, where the newspaper «Hawlati» MP Ayton Geraa of the mass of Republican People's Party Turkish parliament that «there is a Turkish company called (Power Trans) close to the Turkish Prime Minister, run by his son, and shall transfer the amounts of oil extracted Bhkulai Taq Taq and Khurmur Kurdistan to European ports, and that the company made a profit of up to 200 times during the two years of its formation ».

    The newspaper pointed out that «Company (Power Trans) licensed by the Turkish government, as well as from the Kurdistan Regional Government, and has yet to transfer many of the meals from the two fields from October (October) last year to April this year, but not There is very little information about this company and its activities.

    Recall that since July of last year, the Ministry of Natural Resources, led by the Minister Kurdish drastically to export an estimated 15 thousand barrels of crude oil per day, and by truck to Turkey, but the federal government, in the words of al-Shahristani has repeatedly stressed that the export of such The amounts smuggling, presumably accounting Government of the Territory it, because the revenues do not fall into the Iraqi treasury, but go to the pockets of influential power in Kurdistan.

    Foreign Policy: Washington to delay the F16 deal helps Iraq to evade Iranian aid to Damascus
    20-07-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

     translation term

    For months the Obama administration tried and failed to persuade Iraq to stop Iran flights passing through its airspace to Syria, which the United States believes that it helps in the corridor than the regular army on the Syrian rebels.

    Although U.S. officials confirmed the existence of an Iranian air bridges provide critical lifeline to the Assad regime, officials in Iraq say they can not stop the Iranian military supplies; Iraqi air force is very weak and can not do so.

    Today in the new Iraqi ambassador to the United States for the treatment plan diplomatic impasse boils down to the principle of "Help me to help you." In an interview last Wednesday, the ambassador said Luqman Feily he is busy trying to convince U.S. officials that in the case of agreeing to support the Iraqi air defenses, it will improve the ability of Iraq to prevent the passage of weapons coming from Iran.

    He says Philly "is not for us complete control over our airspace for not امتلاكنا air defense system integrated, and this is the cause of my conversations with Alcapittal Hill and with the State Department and the Pentagon, where previously asked for the system as well as Apache helicopters worth $ 10 billion, and this is beneficial to the United States."

    Relations have grown between Iran and Iraq in recent years, what is causing concern to American decision-makers. In spite of the billions of dollars the U.S. to the Iraqi government every year, the ethnic and economic relations and regional issues between Iran and Iraq has made the Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki ally can not be predicted.

    In the case of Syria, even the best efforts of Secretary of State John Kerry has failed in Etienne fruit. Kerry said, speaking about his negotiations with al-Maliki in the month of March, "said the prime minister that overflights coming from Iran is in fact to help keep Assad in power."

    But with the reason behind Iraq's request for the transaction is not surprising, the American military experts acknowledge that legitimate in Feily point, which is that Iraq is not able to stop arms shipments now even if he wanted to.

    The Iraqi air force is composed of some reconnaissance aircraft and light transport aircraft, but to possess what is called the capacity air defense of confrontation and fixed-wing. Currently there is an agreement for the United States to provide Iraq with F-16 fighter jets, but it has not yet received.

    Says Chris Harmer, senior analyst at the Institute of Maritime Studies hostilities "that Iraq's position in terms of not having an integrated air defense system and fixed-wing fighter jets and attack helicopters to abort the aircraft crossing the Iranian airspace, the position is technically true." Hammer adds, "All that is now owned by Iraq is civilian air traffic radars, and the Iraqis can see the Iranian aircraft cross but do not have the military capability to force it to land and undergo inspection."

    And seeks Feily the start to explain his plan for American officials; it is supposed to present on Thursday enthusiastic ambassador presented his credentials to President Barack Obama officially give him permission to meet with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. Says Feily "I do not see any benefit for the United States not to proceed in this matter."

    However, it is the U.S. side is still on the table questions about how to use Iraq to the newly established air power in the case of the approval of the United States on this deal. He says Stephen يكين Fellow of the Institute Hummer and research analyst in which "the Iraqi government in a difficult situation; she wanted and needed to maintain good relations with Washington and Tehran at the same time, Iraq could not engage in a confrontation with Iran and even has the ability to monitor its airspace, I expect that the parties reach a practical understanding constantly allow Iran to transfer arms to the Assad without Iraqi cooperation makes visible. "

    It is natural that this is just a hunch, but there is another effect should we put in our calculations outside of the issue of the civil war, namely the Syrian Kurds; Over the years he was President of Kurdistan, Massoud Barzani, F-16s used as an important theme of the talks, "We have repeatedly Barzani said that the Kurds fear of al-Maliki to use advanced modern air force against them. "

    All of these factors greatly overshadow the decision of the United States in the delivery of F-16s to Iraq, which creates a number of interesting moves. He says He يكين "waiting for F-16s will help the Iraqi government where they can deny their ability to prevent Iranian trips and blames the United States, which maintains a kind of neutrality is stable."

    However that Feily insists that the Iraqi government play correctly and it is cooperating with the Obama administration by all possible means. Says Feily "We have asked the Iranians not to use our corridor, we do not want to be a conduit for the transfer of arms to Syria, but we do not have the ability to stop it."

    Official: Saddam-era Law in Kirkuk Deprives Kurds of their Lands
    by RUDAW

    Official: Saddam-era Law in Kirkuk Deprives Kurds of their Lands

    Kirkuk, which is said to be floating on an “ocean of oil,” is at the heart of a row over disputed territories that are claimed by both Iraq’s central government in Baghdad, and the Kurds who have their own self-rule Kurdistan Region in the north.

    KIRKUK, Kurdistan Region – An old map, falsely designating hundreds of square kilometers of land in Iraq’s disputed Kirkuk province as “restricted oil areas” in order to relinquish Kurdish ownership of the territories, still remains in force, claims a member of Kirkuk’s security committee.

    Ahmad Askari says that major Kurdish residential neighborhoods inside Kirkuk city -- such as Rahimawa, Imam Qasim, Iskan and Almas -- fall under that designation, outlined in a map from the time of Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi dictator ousted in the 2003 US-led invasion.

    “The idea behind this map is obvious: It is to uproot the Kurds from the province,” says Askari, who claims to have a copy of the map.

    He complains that, though territories were falsely classified as oil regions, they remain closed-off, causing major delays in implementing a master plan to improve Kirkuk.

    Askari’s advice is for Kirkuk’s representatives in the Iraqi parliament to work to repeal the law over restricted areas in force in the province.

    Kirkuk mayor, Kamil Salayi, says that the state-owned North Oil Company (NoC), which is part of the Iraqi oil ministry in Baghdad, has submitted an official request for the removal of a number of villages outside Kirkuk, on grounds that they are “within the designated oil areas.”

    “But I have asked the company to reconsider its request,” Salayi says. “Given that an oil well needs only 75 meters of free space around, it is not fair to demolish those villages.”

    Kirkuk, which is said to be floating on an “ocean of oil,” is at the heart of a row over disputed territories that are claimed by both Iraq’s central government in Baghdad, and the Kurds who have their own self-rule Kurdistan Region in the north.

    The Kurds hold major security and government posts in Kirkuk and have appointed two Kurdish governors since Saddam’s fall. But the Kurds complain they are kept in the dark about the affairs of the NoC, which is under the strict control of the central government.

    Askari says that the law was used by Saddam to deprive Kurds of their land.

    “Most of the designated area is agricultural land and not a single liter of oil has been extracted there,” he told Rudaw.

    Askari says that the law was passed after the Baath regime nationalized Iraq’s North Oil Company. But it included vast areas of land that included many Kurdish villages and farms.

    Askari adds that he has requested to see a copy of the law, but the NoC has refused to provide it.
