Baghdad / Obelisk: A political movement between Baghdad and Erbil seeks to settle problems and resolve outstanding issues between Baghdad and the region, while sources reported that the regional government seeks to increase its share of the budget by more than the prescribed 14 percent.
The solution begins with speeding up the approval of the budget, depending on the population density, and then the legislation of the oil and gas law, which is one of the conditions of the agreement to form the government of Muhammad Shia al-Sudani.
The relationship between the federal government and the Kurdistan region is permeated with tensions, and it became more apparent after the Federal Supreme Court issued a decision stating that it is unconstitutional to send an amount of 200 billion dinars as salaries to the region's employees per month.
The region's successive delegations to the Baghdad government are trying to continue dialogues with officials in Baghdad, with the aim of resolving all outstanding issues with the federal government, and resolving the issue of the region's entitlement from the financial budget for the year 2023.
The file of Article 140 of the Constitution is still awaiting resolution, according to the political agreement that resulted in the formation of the federal government.
And the President of the Republic, Abdul Latif Rashid, considered that the legislation of the oil and gas law would solve many problems between the center and the region.
The Kurdish parties are accustomed to setting conditions before voting on any government that is formed related to oil, natural resources, border crossings, and disputed areas.
The many meetings could not establish mutual trust that would lead to final solutions.
With regard to the region's share of the budget, it seeks to obtain a higher percentage than previously applied.
In order to avoid a clash, the Arab and Kurdish political forces used to post problems in every government era.
