Economy News – Baghdad

MP Mansour Al-Baiji considered that the arrival of the delegations of the Kurdistan Region to Baghdad “a waste of time and a delay in approving the budget, nothing more.”

“The arrival of delegations to Baghdad is a waste of time and a delay in approving the general budget of the country because the Kurdistan Regional Government is due to have it hand over its imports to the federal government, and this is the essence and point of disagreement between Baghdad and Erbil.”

He stressed that “the general budget law is ready for voting, and we are awaiting its inclusion on the session’s agenda in order to proceed with passing it, because it is unreasonable to disrupt the country’s general budget because of the Kurdistan Regional Government, which does not wish to hand over its revenues, as is the case in other governorates.”

Mansour Al-Baiji believes that “there is no solution to passing the budget law except by a majority inside the parliament, and it is the only matter to solve the dilemma of the budget law, whose approval is long overdue, and the people are waiting impatiently to vote on it, so this law must be passed in the nearest session.”

He added, “We hope that the Presidency of the Council of Representatives will present the budget law on the agenda of the parliament and give up its responsibility for delaying its approval due to the dilemma of the Kurdistan region, which because it is real for it to deliver its revenues to the center until it receives its share in the federal budget.”

The MP talked about “unanimity from most of the members of the House of Representatives, there is no solution or political consensus on the Kurdistan Region’s share of the budget. All revenues will be handed over to the Kurdistan Region. Otherwise, we will pass the budget by the majority.” Kurdistan and our provinces are destroyed. ”

The Kurdistan Regional Government delegation, headed by the Deputy Prime Minister, Qubad Talabani, arrived on Tuesday evening, Tuesday, to the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, to negotiate with the political blocs on passing the federal budget law for 2021.
