Baghdad / Obelisk: Technical Adviser to the Prime Minister Haitham Al-Jubouri confirmed, on Friday, May 27, 2022, that the government is ready to send the 2022 budget to the House of Representatives whenever the latter requests it.  

Al-Jubouri said in a press statement, that the government is ready to complete the draft budget, indicating that the budget takes two weeks in the Council of Ministers to complete and submit it to the Legal Committee in the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers and the Council of Ministers.  

 He added that the government is ready to send the budget whenever the House of Representatives requests it, pointing out that the recent Federal Court decision was clear that the budget cannot be sent from the current government.  

 He added that sending the budget can be done by inquiring the parliament, considering the budget law is linked to the lives of citizens and has privacy and therefore applies with the interpretation of the court that it directed to the President of the Republic.  

He indicated that the House of Representatives under his presidency can send a letter to the Federal Court inquiring about the budget law, noting that “the Iraqi constitution singled out an article on the budget law and the mechanisms for dealing with this law, and then the Financial Management Law No. 6 of 2019, which defined the mechanisms for sending the budget, Thus, does sending the budget law apply with the interpretation sent to the President of the Republic, or with the decision of the Federal Court, which stipulates that the caretaker government has no right to send bills, explaining that the answer comes from the Federal Court as the authority authorized to interpret the articles of the Iraqi constitution.

Representative Ibtisam Al-Hilali told Shafaq News Agency, “The coordinating framework is holding continuous meetings to resolve the crisis and get out of the political blockage,” noting that “there is a movement to bring the views closer between the Shiite forces included in the coordination framework and the Sadrist bloc after the Kurdish rapprochement over the position of the President of the Republic.”

Al-Hilali added, “The news that talks about the existence of an agreement that brings together the coordination framework and independent parliamentarians to choose Haider al-Abadi as a candidate for the post of Prime Minister are incorrect.”

Al-Hilali continued, “Until this moment, there is no agreement between the coordination framework and the Sadrist bloc or the framework and the independents on a specific personality for the position of prime minister of the new government.”
