Adviser to the Prime Minister, Mazhar Muhammad Salih, announced that the House of Representatives can add paragraphs to the Food Security Law instead of the budget.
Mazhar Muhammad Salih said that there is no constitutional possibility that provides mechanisms for submitting the draft general budget law and passing it through the executive authority towards the legislative authority.
Saleh added that according to this matter, it is difficult to approve the current year's budget.
He explained that the House of Representatives can add paragraphs to the food security law instead of the budget by presenting and voting on the draft law to amend the emergency food security law, which is accepted and implemented by the executive authority.
A report issued by the World Bank warned of the impact of the delay in forming the government and approving the budget on the growth of Iraq's economy.
