He added, "The allocated funds will flow to the projects of the Ministries of Construction and Housing, Municipalities and Public Works, Electricity, Planning, Labor and Social Affairs, especially for the benefit of the poor and the Social Welfare Program," noting that "the sums allocated to these sectors will be very high due to the presence of financial abundance, and the priority of the current government that It was described as a "service government" within the platform of Prime Minister Mohammed al-Sudani.
Aziz pointed out that "good funding will be provided for the next year's budget due to financial abundance and the rise in oil prices due to the Russian-Ukrainian war, which gives Parliament the freedom to increase allocations for another group of groups."
And he continued, "The next year's budget will exceed the barrier of 210 trillion dinars based on the actual need of the country, especially since the year 2022 did not witness a vote on the budget, which led to rotating degrees of deletion and creation, in addition to the existence of significant allocations for the security services and their needs."
