Al-Kazemi announces his government’s intention to challenge the budget law

The Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi announced, on Thursday, his government’s intention to challenge “some” provisions of the Federal Budget Law.

This came in an interview with Al-Kazemi during his meeting with the sheikhs of the tribes and notables of Al-Muthanna Governorate, in the host of Sheikh Jaffat Al-Shaalan, according to a statement issued by his media office and received by Shafaq News.

Al-Kazemi said; “Since my assignment, I have confirmed that I will only be a servant of the people. I mentioned Al-Rumaytha in my first conversation because it is dear to the heart, and I see her people as my family.”

He added, “We face great challenges, and Iraq has gone through difficult circumstances, and when we assumed our duties 11 months ago, there was the financial crisis and the Corona pandemic, and there were also those betting on the failure of the government, or entering into a civil war, but we were not drawn into this, and our patience and we will overcome challenges one by one.” “.

He added that his government had taken “difficult measures for reform, and in order to protect the country financially and economically.”

He stressed, “We will file an appeal with some budget paragraphs with the Federal Court, because there are provisions that will affect the electricity sector, the health sector and others,” noting that “our problems first need correct management and an honesty approach in order to solve them.”

He added, “We have embarked on a campaign of relations with neighboring countries in order to bring in investments to serve our country and its people. I will personally monitor the conditions of Muthanna Governorate, as well as any demands of its people.”

He concluded his speech by saying; “We must not underestimate the blood of citizens, and their lives, blood and property are precious to us,” according to the statement.
