{Baghdad: Al Furat News} Parliament will hold its regular session next Saturday.

Parliament has allocated its session to read the draft federal budget bill for 2021.

The Parliamentary Finance Committee announced yesterday, Wednesday, that it formally received the draft budget bill.

It is noteworthy that the Speaker of Parliament, Muhammad al-Halbousi, announced on the 29th of last month the arrival of the government’s 2021 fiscal budget bill and the extension of the current legislative term for one month, in order to complete many important legislations for the coming period, including the budget.

His deputy, Bashir Al-Haddad, affirmed that “the legislative procedures to complete the federal budget law may take 20-30 days, and that the parliament will begin the first reading of the bill in early January.” 

“There will be serious and intense discussions towards reducing unnecessary expenditures in the budget law, and reducing the deficit ratio for the benefit of the middle classes, the poor and those with low incomes,” he added.
