, the rapporteur of the Parliamentary Finance Committee in the former parliament, Ahmed Al-Saffar, said that the visit of the President of the Kurdistan Region, Nechirvan Barzani, to Baghdad "is not related to the budget only, but rather for the purpose of discussing with the political blocs participating in the government regarding the implementation of the terms of the agreement that was signed and the conclusion of the Sudanese government."
Al-Saffar explained, "These issues are not related to the budget, but rather to the legislation of the oil and gas law, the Peshmerga, the disputed areas, and other matters, for the purpose of ending the outstanding problems that have caused confusion between the region and the federal government for years, and this visit is at a high level to put an end to these problems."
With regard to the budget, Al-Saffar said, "There is an intention of the government to present the budget, and if it is not during the current month, the legislative term will be extended until it is approved because it has become an urgent necessity in light of the absence of the budget for the current year 2022 with a large financial abundance," noting that "The government has started implementing its ministerial platform and government program, and there are serious attempts to finalize the draft budget and submit it to the parliament."
And in the event that the budget is not submitted, Al-Saffar stated in an interview with the official newspaper, "Al-Sabah", which was followed by Mawazine News, that "Parliament will enjoy the legislative recess, and it is possible for the Speaker of Parliament to invite members of Parliament to return during the legislative recess for the purpose of approving the budget due to its importance in facilitating the financial and economic matters of the country."
