Tishwash: Member in Parliamentary Finance: Every day, a new node in the budget is expected … and the date of its approval is expected

A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee expected a new date for voting on the fiscal budget bill for 2021.

“Unfortunately, every day, a new node appears in the budget,” Sherwan Mirza told Al-Furat News, stressing the continuing disagreements over the bill between the political blocs.

“The budget will be approved this week,” he added.

Yesterday, Sunday, the House of Representatives failed again to vote on the 2021 budget despite reports of an agreement on the Kurdistan region’s share.

A representative source told {Euphrates News} that “despite the agreement on the share of the Kurdistan region, which was the budget knot, the differences moved to other materials such as contracts, job grades, the dollar exchange rate, the displaced, and the reconstruction of devastated areas.”

The budget is estimated at 128 trillion dinars (about 89 billion dollars), against a deficit of 29 trillion dinars.  link
