Pursuant to my authority as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA),
and under the laws and usages of war, and consistent with relevant U.N. Security Council
resolutions, including Resolutions 1483 and 1511 (2003),

Noting that appointments of interim deputy Iraqi ministers provide key opportunities to
advance the CPA’s efforts to restore and establish representative government institutions
in Iraq, including national ministry staffs that reflect the ethnic, religious and cultural
diversity of the Iraqi people and the crucial role that Iraqi women must assume in
achieving an internationally recognized, representative government of Iraq;

Recognizing that the Governing Council of Iraq in performing its functions on behalf of
the people of Iraq has nominated Deputy Ministers to assume responsibility of the daily
administration of the Iraqi Ministries,

Implementing CPA Regulation Number 6, Governing Council of Iraq (CPA/REG/13 Jul
