Earlier, MPs revealed efforts and moves to question the central bank governor on files related to monetary policy, especially the currency auction file, as well as the devaluation of the Iraqi dinar and the setting of a new high dollar price from 1190 to 1450 dinars per dollar.

He added, “The Central Bank Law No. 56 of 2004 is an independent body under Article 3 of this law and also the Central Bank’s instructions for the year 2017, and therefore it is the one that determines the exchange rate and if there is an increase in the price, it is necessary to control market prices and prevent inflation that will increase poverty, so read “.
He pointed out that “there is a possibility to challenge this law if it is legislated by Parliament before the Federal Court, and Parliament can not agree to legislate this law and return it to the government for an amendment because Parliament can do so constitutionally as it represents society, according to Article 61 of the Constitution, as well as Article 13 of the Administration Law.
