Shafaq News / A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Majida Al-Tamimi, announced, on Tuesday, that the general budget law is ready for voting, and that the budget law will be voted on within the next two days.
Al-Tamimi told Shafaq News, “We expect at any moment to set a session by the Presidency of the Council of Representatives to vote on the budget law,” noting that “the Parliamentary Finance Committee handed over the draft budget law to the Presidency of Parliament since the middle of last February and since that date the budget has been ready for voting.” .
The MP for the Saeron bloc indicated that “the bloc was present with the full number of its members in the House of Representatives to vote on the budget law last Sunday,” indicating that “any political bloc or any deputy has the right to vote or not on some articles and paragraphs of the law, according to their convictions.”
She pointed out that “some political blocs have an objection to some articles of the law, so they announced their boycott of the session to vote on the budget.”
On Sunday, the members of the Finance Committee in the Iraqi Parliament voted to pass the Kurdistan Region’s share in the federal budget.
The House of Representatives failed to vote on the federal budget bill for 2021, due to the continuing disagreements over some items.
The budget allocations are estimated at 130 trillion Iraqi dinars (about $ 89.6 billion).
