The deputy speaker of the Iraqi parliament, Bashir Al-Haddad, confirmed that the Shiite parties cannot withdraw from the agreement on the Kurdistan region’s share of the budget after signing it, indicating that the voting session on the bill may be postponed for several days.
Al-Haddad said in a statement to several media outlets, including the "information", after the end of a meeting headed by Qubad Talabani and the Kurdish blocs, "Some parties support postponing the meeting for several days, and we will see what we will decide in this regard shortly."
In response to the cancellation of the Kurdistan delegation's agreement with the Shiite parties after the latter's dissolution of their commitment, he clarified that "there is no room for retreating from the agreement after it is signed by the concerned parties and approved by the Finance Committee and circulated."
He continued: "We in the presidency of the parliament do not agree what any retreat and the agreement reached by the parties will be passed on." Ended / 25 o'clock
