Ghazi Al-Yawar asked Monthly $1 Million Salary for Parliament Speaker Post

Ghazi Al-Yawar on right shows mixed feelings as he was chosen as deputy president yesterday.

According to the Kurdish Weekly Hawlati issue: 6th of April 2005, when the former Iraqi President Ghazi Al-Yawar was offered the post of the "Speaker of Parliament" he demanded that his $1 Million a month salary to be kept, when the offer was refused, he turned down the post of the parliament speaker.
Al-Yawar once said that Jalal Talabani, the current Iraqi president, is good to be a speaker of parliament and not president of Iraq. He said that himself is the best choice to be the president because he represents the unrepresented Sunnis.
