Nadhim Zahawi is an Iraqi-born UK Deep state operative and politician who chaired Le Cercle from 2015 to 2017.[1] He has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Stratford-on-Avon since the UK 2010 General Election. He has maintained contact with his native Kurdistan Region of Iraq throughout his career and currently chairs the All Party Parliamentary Group on Kurdistan.[2]

Since July 2019 Nadhim Zahawi was junior Minister for Industry, under Boris Johnson and, on 28 November 2020, Zahawi was given additional responsibility for Life Sciences overseeing COVID-19/Vaccine Deployment.[3]

In September 2021, he was made the new UK/Secretary of State for Education.[4] He became the new Chancellor of the Exchequer after the resignation of Rishi Sunak, pledging to increase military spending.[5] He launched his campaign to become the new prime minister but was eliminated in the first ballot alongside Jeremy Hunt.[6] He was demoted by Liz Truss, and given three new roles. One month later he was moved once again to party chair by Rishi Sunak.


Nadhim Zahawi is of Kurdish origin and moved from Iraq to the UK in his childhood.[7]


Nadhim Zahawi read Chemical Engineering at University College London before proceeding to jobs such as European Marketing Director for Smith & Brooks Ltd, and co-founder and former CEO of YouGov the international market research firm which was listed on the London Stock Exchange's AIM market in 2005.

Gulf Keystone Petroleum

Nadhim Zahawi has held a number of advisory roles in the Oil and Gas sector, joining Gulf Keystone Petroleum Limited as Chief Strategy Officer in August 2015.[8] The Kurdish government granted Gulf Keystone Petroleum the licence for 75% of oil production in the Sharikam oilfield in Northern Iraq which is one of the largest oil fields discovered in the last 50 years. In 2015, over 45 thousand barrels of crude oil were produced on a daily basis and Gulf Keystone Petroleum estimate the Sharikan oilfield has a shelf life of 80 to 100 years.[9]


In January 2021, Nadhim Zahawi reassured libertarian Claire Fox that the UK Government had no plans for vaccine passports. By July, this was revealed to be false.[10]

In early June 2020 Zahawi stated that a "Coronavirus" contact tracing app could be widely deployed in the UK by the end of the month.[11] In late November 2020, he was made UK's Minister for Covid Vaccine Deployment. Although documents revealed that in December 2020 the UK government was planning a "Covid passport", Zahawi explicitly denied this, and in February 2021 he was claiming that the government was “not looking at a vaccine passport for our domestic economy”.[12] In April 2021, he wrote that the UK "currently operates a system of informed consent for vaccinations".[13]

NHS Covid Pass in September 2021.[14]

He threatened a "firebreak lockdown" in October 2021.[15]

Nadhim Zahawi confirmed was Chair of Le Cercle from 2015 - 2017.[16][17]

He "attended the now-infamous men-only charity dinner for some of the country’s wealthiest CEOs, with predictably less than savoury mid-course entertainment."[18]


Related Quotation

"Vaccine passport"““We have no plans to introduce them” said the prime minister (Boris Johnson) when talking about so-called vaccine passports. “I certainly am not planning to issue any vaccine passports and I don't know anyone else in government who would”, said Michael Gove and “no one has been given or will be required to have a vaccine passport” said the man himself, the vaccine's minister Nadhim Zahawi. Now in a slope slipperier than the ones Eddie the Eagle used to chuck himself off, it seems the government have changed their mind. First it was talk of nightclubs or sports events, and now the government is I quote “not ruling out making students be fully vaccinated to attend lectures”.... I guarantee you this is not where it ends.”Michelle Dewberry26 July 2021
