Al-Enezi told Al-Furat News that: “Iraq will benefit from any reduction in oil exports, and the benefit will be for all OPEC Plus countries, and that by increasing the sanctions on Russia, there will be a further reduction in oil production.” 
He pointed out that “there is a study, if an agreement is reached with Iran, large quantities of oil will be presented on the market, which will affect and lead to a reduction in prices.” 
Al-Enezi stressed, “The need for OPEC Plus to follow the policy of gradual reduction until information about the oil agreement with Iran arrives, but if the results of the agreement are negative, it may lead to the prevention of any export and may cause a significant shortage in the market.” 
And the oil-producing countries (OPEC +) agreed, in their meeting on Monday, to reduce the level of production for the countries included in the agreement by the amount of (100 thousand barrels) per day, starting from the month of October, after the changes that the oil markets witnessed recently.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries has determined Iraq’s share of reducing oil production by 12,000 barrels per day in next October. 
And the organization published in a table, the production quota for Iraq for the month of October, which amounted to 4.651 million barrels, a decrease of 12,000 barrels per day from the current month of September, which amounted to 4.663 million barrels per day, which is the same quota set by OPEC for Iraq for the month of last August .

The Sadrists will return to Parliament to stop the framework .. What are the consequences of the expected decision of the Federal Court?

Baghdad today – follow up
The “coordinating framework” stuck to the nomination of Muhammad Shia al-Sudani to head the government, and expectations that the Federal Court would reject the claim to dissolve parliament next Wednesday, left the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, one option, which is the return of his current deputies to resign from Parliament, and restore the “rights of the largest bloc.” It is a paper aimed at thwarting the efforts of the framework, whose officials plan to form a consensus government, or even a “majority government” if efforts to attract Kurdish and Sunni representatives fail.
Observers say, according to a report by the newspaper “Al-Arab”, which was followed by (Baghdad Today), that the Sadrist movement’s representatives can demand to return to their seats in parliament under the pretext that they were forced to resign, because of the “blocking third” established by the coordination framework groups, which prevented them from achieving What they were seeking was to build a stable “national majority” government.

This step depends, in the first place, on whether the second call for dialogue by Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi will succeed next Monday in agreeing on a mechanism to implement the only issue on which there is consensus, which is the dissolution of Parliament and the call for early elections.

Parliament Speaker Muhammad al-Halbousi offered, among other conditions, that the planned dialogue would set a date for early parliamentary elections and provincial council elections, no later than the end of next year.
He also offered to elect the President of the Republic, in addition to choosing a government with full authority, agreed upon, and trusted and reassured by the people and their political forces.
Al-Halbousi also demanded a reinterpretation of Article 76 of the constitution (related to defining the “largest bloc”) and the abolition of the shameful circumvention of manipulating the provision of this article, which occurred under political pressure after the 2010 elections.

This position is closer to the position of the coordination framework, which says that the correct mechanism is the parliament meeting, the assignment of a new prime minister, and the formation of a government that will manage the transitional phase until the elections are held. While the Sadrist movement demands the dissolution of Parliament first, and the survival of the current caretaker government until elections are held.
Observers believe that the hidden intentions are what create a rift between the two parties. While the framework groups want to establish a “national service government”, in order to use it to strengthen their electoral positions and ensure their survival in power, the “Sadr movement” wants to achieve a pre-victory by taking it to the elections to consolidate its positions. In order to say that he brought down the attempts of corruption groups to lead the government again.
Leaders in the Sadrist movement, such as Muhammad al-Aboudi, say, “The government of militias, parties, and quotas is in the news.” The decision, from now on, is in the hands of the people who want to liberate state institutions from the domination of parties, especially the legislative, executive and judicial institutions.
So far, there is no agreed mechanism for dissolving Parliament. And when all mediation and dialogue initiatives failed, and pressures on Muqtada al-Sadr turned into retreats that pushed him to retire from politics, the only option left for him is the return of his representatives to Parliament, which involves more acceptable justifications, both among the other blocs that had previously allied with the current. Al-Sadr, or even by the Federal Court itself, if the Sadrist deputies wanted to resort to it to approve their return.

The expected rejection by this court of the lawsuit to dissolve Parliament puts in front of it more accusations against it that it is working in collusion with the other party. If the court refuses to approve the return of the Sadrist MPs to their seats, these accusations will receive a broader degree of understanding. It is a situation the Court may not wish to find itself in.
Observers confirm that al-Sadr may now feel that he has given his opponents a free opportunity to become the “largest bloc”, to take the initiative, instead of the negative, obstructive position they were in. And that, beyond that, they took advantage of their new position to increase pressure on him, and sought to use all available weapons to defeat him, including the coup of his spiritual guide Kazem Al-Hairi against him, and even condemning and denying his affiliation with the “Sadrs”, meaning his father Muhammad Muhammad al-Sadr and his uncle Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr. Which was like a bomb exploded under his seat.
And when al-Sadr moved the protests to the parliament building, the verse turned against him again, while he could easily win the call to dissolve parliament from within, rather than protests that turned into a new source of condemnation.
Observers believe that the prevailing perception among the framework groups is that the more they besiege al-Sadr and reject his demands, he will make more mistakes that will lead to him appearing as an arbitrary leader, who does not know how to achieve his demands, through the correct means.

As they advance to consolidate their positions by adhering to constitutional procedures and contexts, they appear as state forces, while their opponent appears as a man of turmoil and unrest, and perhaps as an unstable man as well.
The only victim, in this confrontation, is the just demands to combat corruption and dependency on Iran, as the centrist blocs, including the independents, and the deputies of the October movement, see that the legitimate demands are not fought for by offering free victories to the other party.
Leaders in the Sadrist movement are still betting on “peaceful demonstrations” as a way to confront the framework groups’ plans, but these demonstrations, as the experience of 2019 demonstrated, do not frighten the framework groups, nor their militias. Unless it leads to bloody confrontations, it will not push the framework government to abandon what it sees as its last chance to present a new image of itself, by providing services, instead of practicing corruption.
It is believed that resorting to the street, unless it is a cause of a major crisis, the Shiite authority in Najaf will not interfere between the two sides of the conflict. This reference believes that it is responsible for preventing the crisis from turning into an internal conflict, but it is not concerned with the solution that must be made by the parties to the crisis themselves.
Al-Sadr will have to escalate in order to gain a position that calls for calm, but he will not gain a solution or support from this reference. And since he has become without the “reference” cover, which was provided by Al-Hairi, he has become in a defenseless position that cannot engage in adventures that are not guaranteed results. It may end up condemning him by the reference of Najaf, which will be another bomb even more explosive under his seat.
Al-Sadr faces the problem that he does not accept advice and does not consult even with his closest relatives, and acts as the one who has the first and last words, while the correct leadership is contentment with being the one with the last words, after he listens to all the other sayings.
Observers believe that al-Sadr rarely consulted, when preparing his steps, with Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi or President Barham Salih. And he sometimes ignored them, although they remained closer to him than his opponents. He failed to take advantage of their constitutional powers, or their ability to conduct dialogues and search for solutions.
Observers believe that reversing the resignation of the current MPs from Parliament is not Al-Sadr’s last card, but it is his only valid card.

Shafaq News/ An informed judicial source revealed, on Tuesday, new details regarding the investigation opened by the Supreme Judicial Council, regarding the audio leaks of the leader of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki.

The source told Shafak News Agency, “The investigations are still ongoing in accordance with legal and fundamental procedures, and this file has not been closed.”

And he indicated that “there are many specialized bodies participating in this investigation to reach the facts, and there is no pressure on the judicial authorities to close this file. Rather, there is a legal process that the investigation authorities are going through to announce the results in the near future.”

On the nineteenth of last June, the Supreme Judicial Council announced that the Karkh Investigation Court (in Baghdad) had received a request submitted to the Public Prosecution to take legal measures regarding the audio leaks.

In his speech, according to the recordings published by journalist blogger Ali Fadel, Al-Maliki touched on topics related to Sunni Arabs that were considered sectarian, in addition to describing the “popular mobilization” as “a nation of cowards”, while talking about arming clans and groups estimated at 20,000 fighters on the ground, asking him for support. Financially, logistically and legally, and he promised to provide this, in order to protect him from the leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada al-Sadr, who wants to “slaughter everyone,” according to Al-Maliki.

The former prime minister also spoke about “financial and administrative corruption” in the PMF, and about the fact that the “Badr” organization, led by Hadi al-Amiri, receives financial salaries for about 40,000 people, while it does not have that number on the ground.

After these recordings, the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, asked al-Maliki to surrender himself and those who sought refuge from the corrupt to the judicial authorities.

The “Technology for Peace” team, the most famous Iraqi technical team, had confirmed the authenticity of the recordings attributed to al-Maliki, and said that they were “not fabricated”, noting in a report published earlier, that “despite the repeated denials of the owners of those recordings, and his claim I fabricated it by quoting and fitting excerpts from his voice to appear in this way, but the observations we made about the audio clip prove otherwise.

Al-Sadr renews the call to his followers to continue the reform process

3 hours ago

The Independent / – The leader of the “Sadrist Movement” Muqtada al-Sadr renewed, on Monday, his followers’ call to continue the reform process, and addressed them in a tweet via “Twitter”, saying: “Continue on reform, whatever happens.”

In a sign; Al-Sadr said: “I and my companions are neither easterners nor westerners, and no one will rule over us (Ibn al-Da’i) whoever he is.”

Some of them interpreted the phrase “Ibn al-Da’i” as an insistence by al-Sadr not to allow his Shiite opponents in the “coordinating framework” to form a new government and rule the country, while others saw it as a confirmation of the position of the “Sadr movement” to withdraw from Parliament and not return to it, after the Federal Court had determined The current date of September 28 is the date for considering the return of members of the Sadrist bloc (73 deputies) to Parliament after they withdrew from it at the request of al-Sadr last June.

The court’s setting a date to consider the possibility of returning to Parliament angered the Sadrists, and they were quick to deny their connection to the invitation made by lawyer Diaa Al-Din, God’s mercy, about two months ago.

Sadrist circles believe that their opponents seek to “fraud and distort the facts by saying that the Sadrists filed the lawsuit.” The leader of the “Sadr movement” Judge Mashreq Naji issued a clarification in which he said that the lawyer who filed the lawsuit “is not a representative of one of the resigned Sadrist bloc representatives.”

He added: “After filing a lawsuit related to the dissolution of the House of Representatives by the Secretary-General of the Sadrist bloc, and knowledge of this lawsuit, the lawyer was contacted at the time, and he was asked to withdraw and invalidate the lawsuit he filed so that trolls do not prey on murky water.”

He continued that «this (meaning the return of the Sadrists) is contrary to the directions of His Eminence Sayyid Muqtada al-Sadr, not to return the resigned Sadrist bloc deputies. The man expressed his understanding and consent to annul the lawsuit.” He concluded by saying: “Therefore; The resigned Sadrist bloc MPs, or any of them, have nothing to do with this lawsuit, and that it was filed in a personal capacity by one of the lawyers’ brothers, and not as some deceive their pages and websites to undermine (the current) and its leadership.

Salih Muhammad al-Iraqi, known as “Minister of al-Sadr,” said in mid-August to followers of the “current”: “It is strictly forbidden to demand the return of the Sadrist bloc to Parliament.”

Regardless of the Sadrist stance rejecting the lawsuit, some Iraqi political and popular trends welcome the Sadrists’ return to Parliament; Because limiting the political conflict between al-Sadr and his opponents in parliament is much better than extending the conflict to the street, as happened last weekend, when an armed clash took place between the “Sadrists” and their opponents from the “tyreenists” that led to dozens of deaths on both sides.

On the other hand, Agence France-Presse quoted the Iraqi Federal Integrity Commission as announcing, “The arrest of the security director of Maysan Governorate (east) in flagrante delicto inside his office after receiving a financial bribe after blackmailing and bargaining with citizens.”

In a statement, “the Commission” stated that it had received, through its “secret sources, information that the Director of National Security in Maysan bargained with the families of one of the accused in the investigative cases filed with the Directorate,” noting that “those sources confirmed the complainant’s request for a sum of money.”

She added, “Immediately upon receiving the information, I drew up a team from its investigation office in Maysan Governorate (…) as a tight ambush was set up to trap the accused (…) and he was caught red-handed for receiving the bribe.”

The “Integrity Commission” devices filmed the raid of the headquarters of the Security Directorate in Maysan and the arrest of the person concerned.

The Federal Court summons the President of the Independent High Electoral Commission to its next session

The Federal Court summons the President of the Independent High Electoral Commission to its next session

Baghdad / Obelisk: The Federal Supreme Court decided, on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, to summon the head of the Independent High Electoral Commission (Jalil Adnan Khalaf) to its next session.

The legal advisor to the Kurdistan Parliament, Uday Mazuri, said in a press statement that Al-Masala followed, that “the court postponed, in its session held yesterday, the consideration of a case against the law of the Electoral and Referendum Commission in the Kurdistan region, and summoned the head of the Independent High Electoral Commission in Iraq to ask him questions related to the case.” .

And he indicated that “the Federal Supreme Court decided to summon the head of the Independent High Electoral Commission in Iraq for an upcoming court session to consider a case brought against the Parliament of Kurdistan regarding the law of the High Commission for Elections and Referendum in the Kurdistan Region.”

And Uday Ramzi said: It was decided to unify the two lawsuits in one lawsuit and to postpone the court session to September 11, provided that the session will be attended by the head of the Independent High Electoral Commission in Iraq or his representative to answer a number of questions related to the subject, and it is not known what these questions are.

According to the legal advisor to the Kurdistan Parliament responsible for this file, the plaintiffs demand that the Independent High Electoral Commission in Iraq take over the upcoming parliamentary elections in the Kurdistan Region.

The Kurdistan Parliament, in response to the case, argues that the approval of the law to form the High Commission for Elections and Referendum in the Kurdistan Region was based on Articles 110, 117 and 121 of the permanent Iraqi constitution, which says that the formation of this commission is not within the exclusive powers of the federal government, which means that the Kurdistan Region has the authority to form this UNHCR.

The Federal Court met last Monday, to consider two cases related to the cancellation of Resolution No. (4) of 2014 issued by the Kurdistan Parliament, which was filed by the Head of the New Generation Bloc in the House of Representatives and four deputies from the aforementioned bloc, against the Speaker of the Kurdistan Parliament, calling for the abolition of the aforementioned decision on the grounds that it is “unconstitutional.” “.
