A member of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Ayed Al-Hilali, confirmed, on Thursday, that political parties have used the return of the dollar exchange rate as propaganda and a slogan since the start of the elections until the present time, while holding the current government and the authorities responsible for the rise in food prices.

Al-Hilali told “The Information”, “The current caretaker government bears the responsibility for the rise in food prices in the Iraqi markets, as it is a major and very important actor in setting prices.”

He added that “some political parties have used the return of the dollar exchange rate as part of the political orientation and political propaganda since before the elections to the present time, and they still insist on it,” noting that “these parties hold Iraqi merchants responsible for the rise in food prices, forgetting the government’s role in controlling Iraqi markets.” “.

And Al-Hilali stated, “The Iraqi merchant has no guilt in the rise in food prices, as he deals according to the exchange rate of the dollar and cannot stay at the same previous price in the buying and selling operations that cause him a great loss, but the financial differences between the old and current price, as well as the increase in the number of merchants is what It reduces monopoly and control of the market.”

A member of the Al-Fateh Alliance explained that “due to political pressures on the current government, it is difficult to change the price of the dollar in the current year’s budget,” suggesting that “the price of the dollar will be returned to what it was in the upcoming budget.”
