Abstract

This research is one of the important researches that examines the methods of propaganda of the Iraqi political discourse through the study and the analysis of the content of the Iraqi Prime Minister's speech at the weekly conference. The researcher finds that there are a number of propaganda methods used by the Prime Minister to convey his idea in a way that suits the objectives that he seeks to achieve through political discourse directed to the Iraqi nation. This sample represents a four-month study by the fact that in each month there are four press conferences held by the Prime Minister. The study focused on taking three press conferences from each month. The study lasts for four months; from April 1, 2019 to August 1, 2019. Thus, the sample of the present study consists of twelve press conferences. The reason behind choosing this period is that it represents the (100) days; the age of the government. Moreover, it represents a series of important events during that period. The present research composes four sections: section one presents  the research problem, its objectives and the importance of research as well as the research methodology and the temporal and spatial areas of research as well as the research community and its sample. The second section (the theoretical frame) covers the political discourse, what is it? Its descriptions, characteristics and the pillars of the successful political discourse. The third section (the theoretical frame) reviews the propaganda methods used in the propaganda discourse.
