Parliament Finance announces fixing the price of the dollar in the budget: blocs invoke and expect to continue until early dawn

The Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed its intention to pass the budget law in today’s session, despite political blocs arguing in an attempt to obstruct the session.

The reporter of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Ahmed Al-Saffar, told Shafaq News, “The political blocs are using their pretext not to enter the session hall to vote on the budget law.”

Al-Saffar added, “The ministers of planning, finance and oil are still clarifying some paragraphs of the budget for the heads of political blocs, including foreign loans, investment projects, provincial shares, degrees of deletion and innovation.”

He pointed out that “the Finance Committee has completed all the articles of the budget law, leaving nothing but a political agreement to vote on the budget in today’s session.”

Al-Saffar indicated that “the Finance Committee is determined to vote on the general budget law until and continued for the dawn hours,” pointing out that “the dollar exchange rate is fixed by the budget law.”

The Presidency of the House of Representatives had set nine o’clock in the evening on Sunday, as the date for the voting session on the draft budget bill.
