Shafaq News / Today, Friday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee denied setting a date for voting on the 2021 General Budget Law, while noting that the Cabinet did not respond to parliamentary amendments to the Budget Law.

A member of the committee, Ahmed Haji Rashid, told Shafaq News, “The reports that talk about setting a date for voting on the budget law are incorrect,” stressing that “political disputes over the Kurdistan Region’s share of the Budget Law continue.”

He added that “the region’s share of the budget is still 12.67% and has not been decided yet, despite the Kurdish blocs’ approval of the government text previously agreed upon, but until now there is no agreement to amend this paragraph or replace it with a new text.”

Haji Rashid indicated that “the Council of Ministers has not yet responded to the amendments that were drafted and rented by the Parliamentary Finance Committee on the articles of the budget law.”
