deputies talked about the damage of delay in voting on the draft budget law this year with the continuing crisis of choosing the candidate to head the government.
"The vote on the budget is linked to the government, not to the parliament," said Al-Fath alliance Mahdi Taqi in an interview with Mawazine News.
He added, "The council is ready to cut its legislative holiday in order to pass the budget, especially as it is linked to spending on projects and employee salaries and has appointments that are part of the demonstrators' demands."

For its part, the Parliamentary Finance Committee affirmed that the (twelve) budget is the alternative solution in case the delay in approving the budget that the government will resort to.
Member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee Ahmad Al-Hajj said, “The alternative solution in case the budget is delayed is the government's resort to using the twelve-year budget, which is one out of twelve of the actual expenditures for the past year, that is, from the 2019 budget only for operating expenses.” He pointed out that “ Service and investment projects will be excluded from them. "
He added that "the budget for each country prepares a material plan for the government and consequently all service and investment projects will be incorporated into the draft law, so any delay in its approval will negatively affect existing services."
He continued that "the current government is conducting business, and it cannot send a draft budget bill to the House of Representatives according to the rules of procedure of Article 42, the second paragraph," that the caretaker governments do not have the authority to send budget projects.
