The National Program for Economic Reform will win the elections


Samir Al Nusairi *

On May 12 voters will go to the polls to elect Iraq’s leaders for the next four years. The Iraqi peoplewill follow up  and monitor the election programs of the blocs and parties that announced their participation in the upcoming parliamentary elections. The most important programs that the people will be interested in. I think it will be the basis for winning the elections because the sound economic approach will achieve stability, security, security, sovereignty and reconstruction and thus the welfare of society .

In light of the political, security and economic conditions that our country is currently experiencing, especially the suffering of the turbulent economic reality and the financial crisis, which have clearly affected the implementation of the plans of the government and the private sector to contribute to economic development as this crisis causes the current and future repercussions and the apparent failure to create new economic resources and weakness Economic planning and the continuation of the deficit from year to year in public budgets because of the lack of cash reserves in the time of abundance in oil prices because of the lack of a national fund to save and mismanagement of public funds .

In addition to the confusion of the economic vision deep in the background and the reality of the Iraqi economy rent and the migration of national capital abroad because of subjective and subjective conditions

Many questions raised by the economic reality during the period (2003) until the present time, which led to structural and structural imbalances in the economy made the experts and researchers and those concerned with the economic issue to be confused in determining the paths of the Iraqi economy and to any horizon is the most important and obvious confusion in all The economic sectors, although all these sectors of agriculture and industry, oil and finance, construction, reconstruction and services have been drawn up strategies and initiatives, but the reality of the case confirms that nothing has been implemented of these important strategies over those years .

Is it enough to say that our economic approach is moving in a sound direction towards the mechanisms of the market economy? Is there transparency and credibility in the data and information issued by the parties related to economic construction in the public and private sectors and to achieve what governments plan Sequentially. Is this approach is really consistent with the conditions in which the country is living? Do we need to lay the foundations, contexts and laws that serve to rebuild the economy according to a new insight. The mobilization of the potential of the State and the private sector in its various activities depends on drawing up a road map and strategy to build the preconditions for the transition to a social market economy, so that the private sector takes the main role in participating in economic management and economic decision-making .

What are the plans and programs and the lines of communication and cooperation between the government and the private sector in the implementation of a strategy that is timed and clear to all sides and is based on a specific central objective as well? We start and how to build our national economy and who builds and how to build its foundations and who in the end led by whether it is the public sector or the private sector and how to reach a vision shared by the administration) especially since the Council of Ministers approved a few days ago the sustainable development plan of the vineOver the next few years .

Therefore, we need a comprehensive national economic reform approach to the construction and management of the economy in line with everything Iraqi core in consciousness, culture, work and history and the bright future, which we see with optimistic eyes means that we work according to the principle (disagree in politics and unite the economy) so I call the blocks that will win the elections to The unification of its economic programs with a national program of economic reform is approved at the first session of the House of Representatives after the election of the next government for Iraq and its people .
