Tishwash:  Deputy: Parliamentary insistence on passing the budget for three years during the current month


The leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Representative Mahma Khalil, confirmed the determination of the deputies and the political blocs to pass the budget law for three years, and it is likely that it will be passed during this month.


And Khalil told (Baghdad Today) about setting yesterday, May 17, as a preliminary date for voting on the budget, that “we were ruling out passing the budget on this date from the beginning,” noting that “the budget may start during the current month.”


And he stressed that ” the issue of passing the budget for three years is a popular and political demand for the purpose of giving more stability to the government financially,” noting that “the political blocs are determined to pass the budget this month.”


The State Administration Coalition had set last May 17 as a preliminary date for voting on the budget, but the date passed without the possibility of passing the budget, due to the presence of many controversial items and materials that have not been resolved within the Parliamentary Finance Committee. link
