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]


Nadhim Zahawi is of Kurdish origin and moved from Iraq to the UK in his childhood.[4]


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.[5] 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.[6]


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.[7] 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”.[8]


Nadhim Zahawi confirmed was Chair of Le Cercle from 2015 - 2017.[9][10]

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."[11]
