A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Ahmed Hama, confirmed, on Tuesday (September 21, 2021), that investment projects in the country will stop during the coming period until the passage of the country’s general federal budget bill for the year 2022 by the new House of Representatives.
Hama said, in a statement to IQ News , that "the court cannot stop the implementation of all paragraphs of the 2021 budget law, and therefore it is in force as long as no decision is issued by it regarding the articles that the government has challenged with regard to articles (4, 12, 60, 50) and some other materials".
He added that "the court's decision, if issued, will obligate the application to stop the implementation of these articles," stressing that "the court procedures are normal and there is no legal dispute in them."
And he indicated that "the delay in approving the draft budget 2022 will affect the Iraqi citizen in particular and the investment projects in the country, because what will be spent are operating expenses only."
