will rely on the 1/12 budget and spending will be for the operational budget only until the budget is approved.
Al-Tamimi said in a statement to the "information", that "the caretaker government cannot legislate laws, and it is known that the budget is a law sent by the government to Parliament in accordance with the Iraqi constitution, but the government does not have the right to send the budget at the moment as it is caretaker."
He added that " [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
will depend on a budget 1/12 according to the Financial Management Law in Article No. 13 as happened in previous years, and that such exchange will be for the operating budget only without spending any amounts for the investment budget."
He explained that "the government and in case of violating the constitution and sending the budget to parliament, this step is subject to appeal before the Federal Court."
He pointed out that "the government may send the budget to Parliament in case the date of its preparation is old and before it becomes a caretaker, but this matter is open and subject to appeal." 25 n ended
