A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Representative Mudar Al-Karawi, confirmed, on Wednesday, that the discussion of the 2023 budget items will start at the beginning of next week.
Al-Karawi said, in a press interview seen by “Takadum”, that “the discussion of the 2023 budget items by the Finance Committee will start next week, pointing out that it will be determined later to host ministers and general managers in order to find out the reasons for the needs and expenditures.”
He added, "The most important endeavor of the Finance Committee is to create a flexible budget that adapts to the country's conditions and the fluctuations of the global oil market, in a way that does not lead to any large deficit."
He pointed out that “reducing the fiscal deficit for us is a priority, especially since in the 2023 budget it is the largest after 2003.”
And the House of Representatives announced 3 days ago the arrival of the 2023 budget, pending its referral to the Parliamentary Finance Committee in order to conduct discussions.
