On October 27, 2022

The Independent/-
The parliament session began Thursday evening, devoted to voting on the new government headed by Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani.

In a speech before the Council, Al-Sudani said it is an honor to stand today in the house of the legislative authority, as stipulated in Article 76/4 of the Constitution, in order to present the ministerial curriculum and present the government cabinet, hoping to gain the confidence of the people’s representatives and start a new page in the fields of implementation.  He added,

"Our ministerial team will address the responsibility at this stage in which the world is witnessing very large political and economic transformations and conflicts, which adds new challenges to our country, which is already suffering from accumulated crises that have had the most severe economic, social, humanitarian and environmental impact."

And he promised the people "a sincere promise to make the utmost effort and our utmost, in order to succeed in lifting these monuments, in a spirit befitting the courage of Iraqis."  Al-Sudani pointed out that

“the success of our ministerial curriculum stems from our belief that the Iraqis, with their different convictions, beliefs and tendencies, are all righteous sons of our beloved Iraq, and by meeting around us they will form a basis for the success of our government, and openness to all political forces, whether or not they participated in the government.”

And he announced seeking to ensure close cooperation between the members of the House of Representatives and the ministerial team, "in a manner that guarantees a legislative and oversight role that our people deserve, who have entrusted us and you with the trust of representing them."

"We must cooperate to develop the work and effectiveness of state oversight bodies, and strengthen the capabilities of the free national press to play its role," he stressed.

Al-Sudani expressed his government’s keenness to

“increase the capacity and effectiveness of local governments, as is the case in federal systems, and to

find sustainable solutions to files with the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq, through a true partnership based on rights and duties, and to

guarantee and preserve the independence of the judiciary as stipulated in that constitution.”.  He stressed,

"The corruption pandemic that affected all aspects of life is more deadly than the Corona pandemic, and was the cause of many economic problems, weakening the state's prestige, increasing poverty, unemployment and poor services, and

accordingly our program will include firm policies and measures to combat this pandemic."  He expressed his belief that

"building a strong Iraqi economy is able to

achieve qualitative change in services,

create many job opportunities and

open the doors for investment wide, and

contribute to strengthening the foundations of cooperation with countries of the world,

based on the principle of common interests and mutual respect for sovereignty."  He stated that

"our ministerial team will apply a set of principles to work on building a modern economy that serves Iraqis in the present and the future, namely:

stopping the deterioration that afflicts various sectors,
financing and implementing new and lagging projects, which have a direct impact on the lives of citizens and the services provided to them, in addition to
combating Poverty, unemployment and
empowering low-income people.

He also stressed the work on the gradual transformation of the rentier economy by modernizing the work of the economy through the government's sponsorship of an important economic engine based on investing the creativity of young energies;

To activate the building of small and medium-sized companies in

information technology,
services and the
environment, to
provide the state with thousands of job opportunities and to
attract local and international investment.  In his speech,

Al-Sudani indicated that God has bestowed upon Iraq many resources, the most important of which are creative human energies, and our government’s endeavor is to start investing and developing these energies, especially since a large percentage of Iraq’s population are young people who deserve a role in building the country and benefiting from its bounties.  He also indicated that

his ministerial curriculum gave priority to returning the displaced to their areas of residence after completing the requirements for return, and was also concerned with human rights and women's empowerment.  He added,

"Our government will give the necessary care and support to our armed forces and internal security forces with all their names and formations, for being the guarantor of civil peace and security of the country and the implementation of the rule of law."  He expressed his belief that

Iraq's strategic location, regional weight and influence in the world economy give it the right to play a major role that represents its true size and to establish the best relations on the basis of mutual and complementary interests with neighboring countries and Arab and friendly countries.
