Where the results, which applies to the Sunnis and Kurds, which does not allow a real breakthrough, which means the difficulty of forming a government loyal to the opposition front, especially after the huge objections to the election results and enter the country at a critical juncture so far, which requires a return to reconciliations again.

Payment systems and electronic payment techniques and increase the financial coverage to 22% after 11%, which led to the reclassification of banks by the Central Bank locally and procedures are continuing for the purpose of classification by international rating companies. Structural developments in banks can be identified due to follow-up, supervision and supervision of the Central Bank as follows: –

I. Commitment and action in accordance with the regulations issued by the Central Bank of Iraq regarding the combating of money laundering and terrorism financing derived from FATF recommendations and in light of the principles derived from the Anti-Money Laundering Law No. 39 of 2015 .

V. Work on the implementation of the plans of the Central Bank to revitalize the economic cycle and achieve economic stability and increase bank financing granted to small and medium enterprises .

Sixth: The use of all methods and procedures required to be approved to verify the sources of funds of applicants for the purchase of foreign currency for the purpose of preserving the foreign currency of the detrimental behavior of the national economy .

VII. Take the necessary measures to adopt risk criteria and adopt a precautionary policy to contribute to risk perception and thus take appropriate measures to address any risk .
