الى السلطة التنفيذية إلى البنك المركزي العراقي لــ الكاتب / نجم الدليميProposing the need to amend the exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar towards the US dollar…

1 – The devaluation of the national currency of the Iraqi dinar in favor of the US dollar and making the exchange rate of the dinar against the US dollar at 1450 is an unfair, ill-considered and urgent exchange rate, which is against the interest of the Iraqi people and economy, and that the first beneficiaries of this are regional and international countries and Arab and foreign companies And the ruling political elite … as the wealth of the Iraqi people is bought cheaply according to the new exchange rate, and this means systematic plundering ((law)) of the wealth of our Iraqi people, at a very low price, and he played in achieving this the failure of the Minister of Finance and the President of the Central Bank of Iraq according to Guidance from the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

2 – that the ruling authority today represents and applies an extremist and brutal neoliberal approach according to the directives of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, and that today’s exchange rate of 1450 is in the interest of the ruling political elite, in the interest of the leaders of the political parties, blocs and political currents influential today in governance and in cooperation and coordination with the administrative and bureaucratic bourgeoisie, the shadow economy forces, and the mafia-brokers … so they have seized the wealth of the Iraqi people and became millionaires and billionaires, in the American dollar and the Iraqi dinar, and with this stolen money, state institutions will be purchased from factories, large factories, oil and gas, agricultural land, fuel and electricity stations, and other state assets at a very low price and without oversight, and the well-known popular proverb applies (((( He eats without supervision and calculation.

3 – A new exchange rate is required for the Iraqi dinar towards the US dollar, which is one dinar equals one US dollar. This requires deleting the three zeros, for example, the 1000 dinars become Iraqi dinars, and the million dinars (1,000,000) one thousand Iraqi dinars (1000), and according to the new exchange rate 1000 dinars equals 1000 US dollars, and this is in the interest of the Iraqi citizen and economy as a first stage and work in the future to return a new exchange rate Each dinar equals $ 3, as it was previously.

4 – That this can be achieved because Iraq is rich in its natural wealth of oil, gas, gold and phosphates … .. In addition to that, there is a realistic possibility to develop agricultural and industrial production …, that is, to create material production in order not to import, and this will be in the interest of the national economy by not buying goods Food, medicine, and durable goods in hard currency, and then Iraq can export goods and services abroad and obtain hard currency, as well as work to retrieve the stolen money and return it to the Iraqi people, which ranges between 850-trillion dollars. One dollar for one US dollar

5 – The Iraqi people, public and professional organizations, national, progressive and left-wing personalities, and professors of Iraqi universities and institutes, must demand a new exchange rate adjustment in the interest of the national economy

Demonstration in front of the Central Bank of Baghdad demanding the return of the dollar to its previous price

Pictures … a demonstration in front of the Central Bank of Baghdad demanding the return of the dollar to its previous price

Shafaq News / Dozens of people demonstrated on Wednesday in front of the Central Bank of Iraq building in Al-Rasheed Street in the center of the capital, Baghdad, demanding that the exchange rate be returned to 120 thousand Iraqi dinars for every hundred US dollars.

The reduction in the value of the local currency against the hard currency was reflected in the prices of goods and goods, especially imported ones in Iraq, as they witnessed a remarkable rise, which burdened the shoulders of low-income and poor people.

The protesters held banners calling for the dismissal of Central Bank Governor Mustafa Ghaleb Mekhaif, accusing him of “wanting to starve the people.”

Shafaq News correspondent quoted some of the protesters as saying that “the primary beneficiaries of the exchange rate increase are the banks of the political forces.”

Another sign carried the phrase that “these corrupt banks steal their livelihood and that of their families to feed the whales behind them.”

The Iraqi Central Bank decided at the end of last year to raise the selling price of the dollar to banks and exchange companies to 1460 dinars, from 1182 dinars to the dollar, with the aim of compensating for the decline in oil revenues caused by the deterioration of oil prices.

Iraq relies 90% of its income on oil revenues, and the last time it depreciated the dinar was in December 2015 when it raised the selling price of the dollar to 1182 dinars, compared to 1166 dinars in the past.

The Central Bank launched its decision regarding the new pricing for the sale of the dollar in the auction for the currency on the 20th of last December.

Iraq is under great pressure under the weight of the worst economic crisis it has witnessed since 2003 until now due to the low oil prices and the outbreak of the Corona virus.
