The leader of the State of Law coalition, Haider al-Lami, confirmed today, Thursday, that the 2022 budget will not pass until after the exchange rate of the dinar against the dollar is restored to what it was previously, especially after the rise in oil prices.
Al-Lami told the "Information" agency, "The coalition, from the beginning, categorically rejected the decision to raise the exchange rate, but was surprised by a great rejection by some political forces," noting that "the only affected by this rise is the Iraqi people."
He added, "Iraq today exports more than four million barrels of oil, and the price of one barrel reaches 85 dollars, so the exchange rate decision must be reconsidered."
Al-Lami stressed, “The rule of law will not proceed with passing the 2022 budget except with a decision to return the dollar exchange rate to what it was previously, in the service of the interests of the Iraqi people.” Finished / 25 SR
