This is the update for the week ending by American Contractor. If you have read the Iraq Important Dates, you will see the political campaigns for the upcoming elections had been scheduled to start on 7 Feb. It has now been canceled per IHEC meaning no campaigning can start on the scheduled date and moved back to 12 Feb.
My last Intel update I had told you that it is possible the Iraqi Parliament could be called back into session by the Prime Minister and that is what is going to happen. A “extraordinary” session as it is being called will occur on 7 Feb. PM Maliki and Iraqi Parliament will be discussing the decision by the Accountability and Justice commission to allow the banned candidates to participate in the elections.
The Iraqi Parliament extraordinary session is scheduled 7 Feb, however, if a solution to the crisis is resolved by a meeting on Saturday by PM Maliki, and other officials then the extraordinary session will be canceled.
Per law the Iraqi parliament can only discuss what the PM invited them to discuss and that is the decision for banned candidates to participate in the upcoming elections. The Iraqi parliament can not discuss or deliberate anything else. So you can’t try and pass the Oil and Gas law not going to happen. They are saving that for the next new incoming Iraq parliament. I will say that there are Iraqi parliament members that would like to vote on other bills or legislation and will keep watching to see what happens in the next few days.
American Contractor analysis of the Revaluation of the Iraqi dinar currency has been confirmed and will not happen in the month of February 2010. It is 100% confirmed. How? You may ask. It is confirmed by credible professionals living the dream overseas. American Contractor has a network of credible sources and not to mention the owner of the coffee shop on Hiafa St..
As always more to follow…
