The Central Bank reveals the amount of money in circulation: 80% of it is hoarded in homes for one reason

البنك المركزي يكشف حجم الأموال المتداولة: 80% منها مكتنزة في المنازل لسبب واحدBaghdad – The Central Bank of Iraq revealed, on Wednesday, the volume of circulating funds, while indicating that 80% are stocked in homes due to the lack of high confidence in the citizen towards banks.

Ihsan Al-Yasiri, Deputy Governor of the Central Bank, said in an interview with our colleague Karim Hammadi, followed by “Nass” (April 20, 2022): “We have 76 trillion dinars as a source of circulation, 20% of which are deposited in banks, and 80% of them are hoarded homes, and this is a deprivation for society.”

He added, “Hoarding money in homes, which is behind the mistrust of some citizens in banks, regardless of whether they are private or governmental, is a high risk, as these funds may be exposed to damage, burning or theft.”

And he stated, “The Central Bank has set strict standards to control the behavior of banks and we are witnessing a development in performance, knowing that the banks’ control has 3 tracks, the first is improving performance, merging the bank, or withdrawing the bank’s license if the reluctance continues.”

He said, “The government system acquires 85 deposits and the public,” noting that “after 2003, we have a large number of banks, some of which are private, which are excellent and have reached stages in digitization and the digital economy.”

He added, “We have supervision and an attempt to push some banks to be good and rise to the required level, as we focused on controlling the banks’ behavior.”

He continued, “We have 70 private banks, more than half of the number are excellent, while the government has seven banks, namely: Al-Rasheed, Al-Iraqi Trade, Al-Rafidain, Al-Nahrain Bank, which is a model for Islamic banking, and the Housing Fund, while the Industrial Bank is doing well.”

Al-Yasiri stressed that “the enforcement of the law for loans confirms the existence of a guarantee for any dinar that is loaned, and the one who does not have an income from a fixed source must provide a guarantor – the cost of lending is very high, and when there is an interest of 8% on the loan, it is considered very expensive, but if the limits of risks are increased, the risks may be increased.” interest rate increases.

He pointed out that “the Rafidain Bank granted loans to large institutions, and there is a loss of up to 6 trillion dinars in these loans due to the pressures of increasing the interest rate, but part of the risks of non-payment are avoided through them.”

Al-Kazemi…  and “Save the Homeland” discuss a step away from the majority and consensus government

May be an image of 7 people, people standing and indoorShafaq News / An informed source in the “Save a Homeland” alliance, which includes the Sadrist movement, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the Sovereignty Alliance, revealed today, Tuesday, that the alliance is studying a new step that it may take during the next stage, far from the majority and consensual government.

The source told Shafaq News Agency, “The Alliance to Save a Homeland is seriously considering and studying maintaining the government of Mustafa Al-Kazemi, during the next stage, in the event that the political blockage remains and the suspension of the presidential election session is maintained, and the coalition has prepared the ground for this option by working on the Legislation of the Emergency support Law for Food Security and Development, which will enable the Al-Kazemi government with financial powers similar to the budget law.

And he indicated that “the Alliance to Save a Homeland is considering the possibility of making a semi-comprehensive amendment to the government of Mustafa Al-Kazemi, in the event that it is maintained during the coming period, and the new ministers will be candidates exclusively by the Triple Alliance, and their passing is easy according to the parliamentary majority owned by this coalition,” explaining “The change of ministers will be through dismissal or resignation in agreement with the prime minister.”

The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, had set on March 31, a deadline of forty per day on what is known as the blocking third consisting of the coordination framework and allied deputies, to form a government independent of the Sadrist bloc.

Al-Sadr’s position came after the Iraqi parliament failed for the third time in a row to hold a session to elect a new president for the country due to the intensification of the dispute between the Triple Alliance (the Sadrist bloc, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, the Alliance of Sovereignty), and the coordinating framework that includes Shiite political forces.

The election of the President of the Republic requires a quorum in which the presence of representatives constitutes two-thirds of their number, or more than 220 deputies out of 329, which was not achieved due to the boycott of the coordination framework that represents prominent Shiite parties, such as the State of Law bloc and the Al-Fateh Alliance, the umbrella under which the loyalist Popular Mobilization factions fall under. for Iran.
