Dr. Hassan Al-Yassiri was elected as the national supervisory
figure with best performance for the year 2016 according to a referendum
conducted by the Iraqi Union of News Agencies, which involves more than 170
news agencies, satellite channels and media outlets, to elect the remarkable
and effective figures in the local arena.
The Union`s Secretary-General pointed out - in a speech inaugurating
the ceremony which witnessed the announcement of the referendum results - that
the annual ceremony aims to deliver a clear message to the world that Iraq, no
matter how many hardship it undergoes, would not bend and would stand lofty in
front of the challenges facing the future of its sons, stressing that the
creative work and sound performance is the one that reveals the true spirit of
men, especially in the time of crisis, and noting that the Union intended
through the referendum that lasted for four months by e-mail participation and
field survey, to refute the rumors and tendentious gossip through which some
attempt to create confusion over the victories of our armed forces and the popular
mobilization units (PMUs) and to distort the outstanding performance made by the
national institutions and figures.
The ceremony, which was held under the slogan (Your Sacrifices ..
Deeply Appreciated) to celebrate the achieved victories against ISIS terrorists
in Nineveh province and other areas, witnessed distributing shields to the
winning figures in the referendum, including a number of ministers, deputies,
inspectors-general, advisers, presidents and deans of universities, as well as a
number of security personnel and leaders at the PMUs, where the Director-General
of CoI`s Office of Education and Public Relations represented Dr. Al-Yasiri to
receive the shield (of the best national regulatory figure).
Selecting Dr. Hassan Al-Yassiri as the best national regulatory figure
for 2016, comes after he was named on the international level, as a member of
the Board of Governors of the International Anti-Corruption Academy, representing
Asia and the Pacific, and on the Arab and regional level he was elected as the
Deputy Chairman of the First Conference of the Arab Anti-Corruption
Organization as well as Chairman of the Arab network to Promote Integrity and Combating
Noteworthy to mention that the Iraqi Union of News Agencies, is a community
organization that involves more than 170 news agency, satellite channels and
media outlets. It conducts an annual electronic referendum and field survey in
most of Iraq`s provinces to select the national figures that achieve the
highest percentage of votes for their performance.
