People – Baghdad  

On Monday, Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of the Sadrist movement, issued a warning to Parliament after its “inability” to hold a clear contract to pass the budget law.  




On  Sunday, the deputy from the Saeroun bloc,  Badr Al- Ziyadi, revealed the latest developments in setting the budget for 2021 in the House of Representatives.  

Al-Ziyadi said in a statement, “People” received a copy of it (March 28, 2021), “The features of the parliament session are unclear and differences continue, and even the share of the Kurdistan region has not been resolved 100%.”  

He added that “the differences between the political blocs are due to adding paragraphs to the budget, while other blocs object, and there is no consensus until the moment and negotiations are continuing,” noting that “whoever says that the budget is ready for voting today is not real talk and we are waiting for the differences to be resolved,” indicating that ” The differences are clear between the blocks, and it is regarding the exchange rate of the dollar between reducing it and maintaining it. ”  

He pointed out that “the meeting on the budget is continuing, and there are continuous requests to return the dismissed and canceled contracts, and matters are further complicated by political differences.”
