IRAQ & ARTICLE VIII, 8 AUGUST

Are we looking for Iraq to submit an Article VIII request to the IMF, and does Iraq need to have an Article IV Consultation before we can expect to see an RI/RV?
I was just wondering if these items would tip us off that our quest was getting close.There is an Article IV consultation coming up in September with the IMF and my gut feeling is that they are stalling these election results until that
