Baghdad / Obelisk: The legal expert, Tariq Harb, explained, Monday, September 14, 2020, the legality of the new appointments for special degrees.

Harb told Al-Masalla, that “the new appointments do not need the approval of Parliament, as they are by proxy, like their predecessors, and like hundreds of holders of special degrees in the state, including agents, advisors, bodies and high positions.”

He added, “The new appointments such as the governor of the Central Bank, the Secretary of Baghdad, bank directors and the head of an investment commission do not need to be presented to Parliament or to obtain approval from them because they are exercising their duties by proxy.”

Harb pointed out, “If they want to convert them by origin, they must be submitted to a parliament vote.”

A source close to Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi revealed, on Monday, September 14, 2020, that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi made changes in senior positions, most notably the Central Bank, the Baghdad Municipality, the National Investment Authority, the Iraqi Trade Bank, the Intelligence Service, and the Securities Commission.
