the talks between the political blocs are still continuing, but will not yield alliances before the ratification of the election results , "

Historically manual vote recounts in Iraq have taken 30 days and the formation of a government about 90 days. Much of this is arguably business or politics as usual in Iraq. The protests are not unusual either although more violent and widespread this time.

Dave  they are inching their way.... SADR hopes to speed things along I hope
with a clean house things could go down rapidly

chattels  There is a danger for Sadr in all of this as he has been on the outside looking in, but given his current position is increasingly being viewed as part of the establishment.

Dave  supporting protests though

chattels  Sadr needs to form a coalition for the next government with the very people that the protesters are decrying as the corrupt.

While sympathetic to the protesters, he is hard pressed to embrace the protestors as he has in the past.

Dave  Naijafi ,Alawii. Maliki to name a few
not much is going down until they are done with this election...IMO
...then things will get interesting I hope
how and when this forms up is going to be my litmus test

Sat July 28 2018 Early am chattels  Before turbulent election day, Iraq ignored key warnings .....
As Iraq suffers a crisis of public confidence in its May 12 election results, evidence shows the election commission failed to act on detailed UN warnings about serious problems.

BAGHDAD - Iraq's electoral commission neglected to heed a series of pre-election warnings by the UN about serious flaws in its new electronic voting systems, according to official letters obtained by Iraq Oil Report.

The documents do not provide any evidence that the results of Iraq's May 12 national elections were fraudulently manipulated, but they do show that the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC) was aware of - and failed to address - technical problems that contributed to an ongoing crisis of confidence in the electoral process.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The solution to the country's problems lies in the full implementation of the constitution and the amendment of some of its provisions, the head of the parliamentary legal committee in the former parliament Mohsen al-Saadoun said.

Al-Saadoun said in a statement to the Iraqi National News Agency / Nina: "The Iraqi people sent important messages to the politicians, firstly a few participation in the elections, and then rejected the political situation in the country after the start of demonstrations in Baghdad and a number of southern provinces, "The political leaders and the government are required to address the current situation and find effective solutions to the problems experienced by the provinces, and the implementation of the demands of the demonstrators, and provide basic services for them

Al-Saadoun pointed out that there is no legal impediment to amending the constitution and changing the system of government in Iraq from parliamentary to presidential. He pointed out that the amendment of the constitution took place in most countries of the world, including the United States, whose Constitution is the oldest constitution, "He said.

Spectra- Venezuelan President announces the deletion of zeros from his local currency to revive the economy of his country???

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro Thursday issued a decision to remove five zeros from the Bolivar currency, media reported.
Maduro said the deletion of the zeros was part of a plan to revive the economy and stabilize the financial market in the country, which has been suffering from a crippling economic crisis for years.
He vowed to change foreign currency trading rules to attract investment to the country.

Maduro attributed his country's economic crisis to what he called the "economic war" waged by the Venezuelan right and the United States to overthrow him.
"I will send to the National Constituent Assembly (parliament) a bill on changing foreign exchange rules to correct some aspects that would remove barriers to foreign exchange inflows so that there is foreign exchange investment in he said

9am Thu 7-26-18  5 am chattels Some " guru " : " Some say that seating the new government is not necessary for a currency revaluation, but the CBI has stated that "stability" is one of the key elements (the other being "security") to moving ahead with the deletion of the 3 zeroes project. Stability, some claim, is intrinsically connected to removing the corruption associated with the currency auctions, and so that brings us back around again to the need to seat the new government and remove a large portion of corrupt politicians who, in losing their re-election, will lose their immunity from prosecution the moment they are declared no longer a part of the government."
 ........... will lose their immunity from prosecution the moment they are declared no longer a part of the government."
chattels My read / take is that the losing MP's became private citizens and without immunity on or about July 1st upon the dissolution of Parliament. Tariq Harb has stated as much some weeks ago.
chattels The governing Shia alliances have a very poor record of prosecuting their own.
Also see " .............. the parliaments term will come to an end on June 30, 2018, as it first convened on July 1, 2014. After four years, it has no legal basis to convene and therefore members of parliament return to being private citizens."

July 25 2018 pm chattels Two Iraqi pilots got into a physical fight in the sky while flying their Boeing 737 with 160 passengers on board.

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region Two Iraqi pilots got into a physical fight in the sky while flying their Boeing 737 with 160 passengers on board.

"We have launched an investigation into the two pilots who engaged in a brawl in the plane cockpit mid-flight," the Iraqi Transport Ministry announced on Wednesday.

The two pilots were working for Iraqi Airways.

The airline said they will "strongly punish" the pilots, including revoking their licences so "no one would dare repeat such acts," said the airline in a statement seen by al-Sumaria News.

"Our airline in many aspects has a good reputation and thousands of passengers witness it, the airline added.

The cause of the fight or what route the pilots were flying at the time have not been disclosed.

Iraqi Airways is the national carrier of Iraq. It is considered oldest airline in the Middle East.

Wonder what they were fighting about ? 

Abadi: Iraq needs the price of $ 67 per barrel of oil to cover the expenses of basic services .. No projects | 24/07/2018 21:45

BAGHDAD / Iraq's national news agency / nina / Prime Minister Haider Abadi said that "Iraq needs the price of oil $ 67 to cover basic services .. No projects."

"Oil prices have risen and Iraq is now selling at $ 64 a barrel. In order to pay for the basic state expenditures, we need a price of $ 67 (US) without projects," Abbadi told a weekly news conference. c

The gurus claiming that the price of oil is establishing any surplus / discretionary funds for Iraq are deluded.
I do not believe that " basic state expenditures " includes any cost of reconstruction, debt service payments, etc.,

Chattels> Dollar and gold exchange rates in Iraq on Wednesday July 25 2018
The exchange rate of the dollar, on Wednesday, stabilized against the dinar in the local currency market.
According to the figures for "trend", the price of selling the dollar in Baghdad today was 119 thousand and 250 dinars and the purchase price 120 thousand 250 dinars compared to $ 100.

CBI appears to be maintaining compliance with the 2% variance between the Official / Parallel Market Rate although the auction volume has been elevated perhaps in an effort to so maintain by balancing supply demand on the dollar.

24 Jul 18, 08:19 PM Chattels> Protests in Southern Iraq Intensify, Is Instability to Follow?
July 24, 2018 by Matthew Schweitzer
How did southern Iraq reach this boiling point? Julys outburst of angerdirected at parties across Iraqs political spectrum, foreign oil companies, and, notably, Iranpoints to several factors driving southern Iraqi instability that extend beyond the recent escalating protest movement. Critically, the interrelated effects of economic collapse and endemic corruption, severe environmental degradation, and ongoing tribal and criminal violence undermine Baghdads ability to exert meaningful control over its southern provinces, while insufficient service-provision and poor governance leaves many southerners with a sense of disaffection from the national political process."

" The Iraqi government, of course, cannot afford long-term instability in the south. Basras oilfields and Persian Gulf export terminal account for approximately 95 percent of the countrys GDP and its only sea-access. The region sent tens of thousands of young men to fight against the Islamic State (ISIS) in the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), many of whom are now returning home with their weapons. Yet, many Iraqi political leaders took southern Iraqs relative stability for granted, ignoring steadily growing political volatility, economic malaise, and deep public anger against both provincial and national politicians. During the May 2018 parliamentary elections, only 14.4 percent of Basras eligible voters went to the polls (compared to a still-dismal 44.5 percent nationally), a figure that underscored the regions sense of dislocation from Baghdad and ongoing desires among the population for increased autonomy from the federal government."

" When oil prices collapsed in mid-to-late 2014, this fragile balance of corruption, bribery, and security undergirding Basras oil-fueled growth deteriorated. Government subsidies ceased as oil-revenue dropped by nearly 50 percent, fueling escalatory violence between tribal groups competing for access to a dwindling client base. Meanwhile, oil-sector contractors in Basra reportedly laid off between 30 and 80 percent of their employees by early 2017, emptying entire migrant labor settlements and leaving thousands of Basrawis without stable income."
........... political elites may resort to time-tested methods of protest resolution, combining co-option (buying protesters off with promises of jobs) and coercion. It is dubious whether such an approach can succeed in southern Iraq, following years of official neglect. Without more thorough government engagement to address the problems facing southern regions, current grievance could presage greater instability."
