Baghdad today - Special
, Member of the Al-Fateh Alliance, MP Rafiq Al-Salihi, confirmed today, Saturday, the possibility of returning the price of the dollar to its previous price.
Al-Salihi said in a statement to (Baghdad Today), that "there is still a possibility to restore the price of the dollar, but the political blocs must unite to support the oppressed Iraqi people."
He added, "We are in favor of restoring the exchange rate and insisting on it during the next stage," noting that
"when the decision was taken to raise the price of the dollar, the country was going through an economic crisis as a result of the drop in oil prices."
He continued, "The price of a barrel today exceeded $100, meaning that it covers the difference in the exchange rate of the dollar."
Al-Salihi pointed out that "there is no glimmer of hope that the current government will change the price of the dollar because it is constantly working to starve the Iraqi people, so the political blocs must stand together to restore the rights of citizens."
