Shafaq News / The Iraqi Cabinet has postponed holding the session devoted to discussing the 2021 budget bill until next Saturday.

The spokesman for the Council of Ministers, Minister of Culture, Tourism and Antiquities, Hassan Nazim, said in a press conference held today and attended by the correspondent of Shafaq News Agency, that laws and conflicts within Parliament should not affect people’s daily sustenance.

He added that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi called for the human side to be removed from political conflicts, adding that there are ongoing dialogues in order to find a solution to the problem of salaries.

Last September, the government approved the financial budget bill and sent it to Parliament, before withdrawing it again for amendments.

Nazem also said that Al-Kazemi directed the ministers to mobilize the means to achieve the legitimate demands of the people of Dhi Qar.

He continued by saying that the government is proceeding with holding the elections as scheduled.
