politicsIraqMustafa Al-Kazemi 2021-12-11 15:04A-AA+

Shafaq News/ Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi confirmed, on Saturday, that Iraq will witness the withdrawal of combat forces of the international coalition within days, indicating that Iraq is recovering.

Al-Kazemi said in a speech on the occasion of the centenary of the modern Iraqi state, followed by Shafak News Agency, “It does not mean that Iraq a hundred years ago from today was not a state. And the first policeman whose job was to protect the people, and the first regular soldier who defended the borders and sacrificed himself.”

He explained, “The Iraqis’ awareness of all this legacy is their responsibility that has been passed down by generations and has reached us, and we will pass it on to our future generations to tell them with clarity and frankness befitting the modern technology era: (Here is Iraq… here is the state. We have no choice as Iraqis but to defend it, preserve its history and prevent manipulating their capabilities).

Al-Kazemi continued, “It is time for us to look at our state objectively, to be proud of its achievements, to admit its mistakes, and to move forward, armed with our heritage and the capabilities of our people, to be side by side with all successful countries.” 

He stressed that “Iraq recovers its full health, its wounds heal successively, and rises from its setbacks to occupy its place by the self-will of its people. Our neighbors, our brothers and the world interact with your will and listen to the voice of Iraq emanating from your depths. You are the people of Iraq and the decision-makers in it, and you are the state.” 

Al-Kazemi said, “In a few days, we will witness the withdrawal of all combat forces of the international coalition from Iraq within the scope of the strategic agreement with the American side, and its role will be in the areas of advice, as an indication of the ability of the Iraqi forces of all kinds to preserve Iraq’s security, stability of its people, and its continuous development in this field.” 

He added, “Amidst the political disputes and jurisprudence that emerged from the recent elections, everyone must be reassured… We will not allow your security and stability to be harmed,” noting that “despite all the differences, the political forces, the new currents, the independents, and the elites are the sons of this country and they are keen on it and its security.” 

The Prime Minister pointed out that “the difference in views and orientations is fading in front of everyone’s belief that Iraq is our umbrella and our home, and that tampering with it and its future is a red line.” 

He continued, “On a personal level, I highly appreciate every sympathy and message of reassurance and solidarity that I received after the terrorist attack that targeted me weeks ago… I say in this regard: My life is not more precious than the life of any Iraqi throughout the country, but it is the path of the state that we worship together with a pure and pure Iraqi will, And for his sake every difficult thing is facilitated, and our souls are eased before his greatness.”

politicsFederal Supreme CourtElectoral CommissionElection results 2021-12-11 06:18A-AA+

Shafaq News/ The Independent High Electoral Commission in Iraq confirmed today, Saturday, that there are no appeals against the results of the parliamentary elections “at the present time” with the Federal Court.

Imad Jamil, a member of the media team in the commission, told Shafaq News Agency, “There are no appeals against the results of the early parliamentary elections at the present time to the Federal Supreme Court, but there are complaints submitted to it, one from the Al-Fateh Alliance, another complaint about the quota for women, and a third from 3 candidates.”

Imad suggested that “the Federal Supreme Court will ratify the results of the early parliamentary elections in the near future, after considering the complaints submitted to it,” noting that “there is no constitutional or temporal timing that obliges the Federal Supreme Court to ratify any decision according to any period of time.”

The Federal Court, “the highest judicial authority in Iraq,” has set the 13th of this month as the date to consider a claim to annul the results of the Iraqi elections, which was presented by Hadi al-Amiri, the head of the “Al-Fateh” coalition, the Secretary-General of the Badr Organization.

economyIraqKurdistan RegionbreakingoilProduce 2021-12-11 06:15A-AA+

Shafaq News/ The Oil Marketing Company (SOMO) said that Iraqi crude oil production, including flows from Kurdistan Region, rose to an 18-month high at 4.208 million barrels per day during the month of November.

The data showed that federal exports jumped to 3.273 million barrels per day in November from 3.119 million barrels per day in October, while KRG flows in the month were unchanged at 408,000 barrels per day.

Average domestic use, which includes burning crude oil and operating refineries, was 518,000 b/d, down 5,000 b/d from October.

Iraq’s share of OPEC + rose to 4.193 million barrels per day last month, from 4.149 million barrels per day in October, as the coalition continued to raise the production ceiling.
