A lot of information comes out of Baghdad in the media. The local media reports in Baghdad are either in support of the new Iraq currency or against the new Iraq currency. It all depends on who is doing the talking and reporting and which political affiliation.
I have written that the new currency is on hold for the year 2012. I know the articles state in September 2012. However, the new Iraq currency if the Iraq government and the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) agree to print and distribute the new Iraq currency, it will be initiated in the beginning of the year 2013. This will coincide with the new Iraq federal budget that the Iraq government will be because the new Iraq currency will be incorporated in the next Iraq Federal Budget. This is still not a for sure thing as there are ongoing talks between the CBI and the Iraq government.
This is all contingent on if everything goes well between the CBI and the Iraq government. They all have to agree on the project as Dr. Sinan al-Shabibi and his staff at the CBI can not act with out having government approval.
Remember, when the new Iraq currency is distributed the Iraq money supply will increase to higher levels. Later, they will withdraw the old currency gradually as time goes on. Watch the CBI reporting numbers in the near distant future. They will increase.
Here is an article published from Iraq media mentioning the Iraq Finance Minister opposes the new Iraq currency until next year 2013 to coincide with the Iraq federal budget.
