Al-Harithi told Mawazine News that “there is a near-total agreement between Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and the Kurdistan Regional Government President on the sidelines of their meeting the Munich Security Conference held in mid-February on the draft budget law in Parliament,” noting that ” Managed to convince the Kurds with their share of up to 14% instead of 12% as stated in the draft law.
Al-Harthy said that “the Kurdish deputies, especially the deputies of the Kurdistan Democratic Party and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, insist on stubbornness and shelved any solutions offered by the government to pass the budget unless their demands are met, which is the proportion of the Kurds from the budget, 17%.”
On the meeting of the three presidencies on Monday, Al-Harthy explained that “the presidential meeting will see the discussion of the budget and the mechanism passed in the House of Representatives, because most of the state institutions are suspended from work due to delay the adoption of the budget.”
