Parliamentary Finance: The budget bill will not pass without the Kurds
A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Sherwan Mirza, ruled out the presentation of the draft law in the Iraqi parliament for a vote without the participation of the Kurds, indicating: “And in the event that happens, the project will not have enough votes to pass it.”
Mirza said in a television interview, “The opportunity to reach an agreement between Erbil and Baghdad is still there, and we are optimistic about it, as the atmosphere is positive and good.”
He pointed out that what is delaying reaching an agreement “is not related to the Kurds only, but also to other parties.”
On submitting a Shiite proposal for the Kurdistan region’s share of the budget, the Kurdish MP explained that “the Shiite parties have not yet submitted any joint proposal, and we are awaiting what those parties reach in this regard.
He pointed out that today’s parliament session will not address the budget bill, and explained: ”
Mirza renewed the commitment of the Kurdistan Regional Government to the text contained in the draft budget law and the delivery of 250 thousand barrels of oil to SOMO.
