On Tuesday, the Parliamentary Committee on Economy and Investment held some political blocs responsible for delaying and disrupting the interrogation of Finance Minister Ali Abdel Amir Allawi and Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, Mustafa Ghaleb Mikhaif .
Committee member Nada Shaker Jawdat said, "Members of the House of Representatives demanded to host and interrogate the Minister of Finance and the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq after changing the exchange rate of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar, and the increase in the prices of goods and commodities in the markets during the last period ."
She added, "Some political blocs bear responsibility for delaying and disrupting the interrogation of the Minister of Finance and the Governor of the Central Bank for political and personal purposes. They themselves bear the responsibility for the high exchange rate that exceeded 150 thousand Iraqi dinars per 100 dollars ."
And a number of political blocs and members of the House of Representatives demanded, several times, to question Finance Minister Ali Allawi, and to remove him from his position because of his policy, which some of them described as "failed ."
Jawdat continued, by saying that "the change in the exchange rate and the rise in prices broke the back of the citizen, especially those with daily sustenance and those with limited income ."
