Al-Kaabi said during the meeting of the Finance Committee, which was attended by Shafak News Agency's correspondent, that "the Parliamentary Finance Committee held a meeting in the presence of the legal committees and the parliamentary martyrs, and the vote on the food security law will be before the end of the current legislative term."
He pointed out that "there is agreement on the articles of the law according to the total amount, which is 25 trillion dinars," explaining that "the Parliamentary Finance Committee will vote today on the articles and paragraphs of the Food Security Law, in order for the law to be ready to vote in the parliament session."
Al-Kaabi pointed out that "the law included a financial allocation to the Ministry of Electricity to pay the dues of Iranian gas, as well as the dues of the lecturers, contracts and daily wages, while authorizing the Minister of Finance, as well as petrodollars, for the oil-producing and affected provinces to conduct military operations, and an amount was allocated to the institutions of martyrs and political prisoners."
He continued, "There are differences that will be resolved either within the Finance Committee or in the voting session on the law."
The Iraqi parliament had completed, at the end of last May, the second reading of the proposed food security law, after discussing it during a regular session held under the chairmanship of Muhammad al-Halbousi and the presence of 250 deputies.
Yesterday, Saturday, Deputy Parliament Speaker Shakhwan Abdullah said, "We are not in favor of passing the emergency food security support law in its latest form because it includes unnecessary exchange doors that increase the risks of suspicions of corruption and waste of public money."
Meanwhile, the Parliamentary Finance Committee denied the authenticity of the news that the amount allocated for the proposed emergency support law for food security and development exceeded 25 trillion dinars.
