On Sunday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee described the federal government's printing of currency without providing financial cover as a dangerous and wrong act.
Committee member Abdul Hadi Al-Saadawi said, "The government of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi does not have a vision for economic and financial reform," noting that

He added that "printing the currency without providing financial cover is the most dangerous work done by the Central Bank of Iraq at the present time," noting that
"this matter will lead to major economic problems."
