Today, Thursday, the coordination framework affirmed that the federal budget law is not subject to bargaining or extortion from any political party.
The leader in the framework, Ali al-Fatlawi, told (Baghdad Today) that "the forces of the coordination framework did not and will not allow the budget law to be exposed to any state of bargaining and blackmail by any political party."
He added, "This law affects the lives of citizens, and it must be far removed from any political agenda."
And Al-Fatlawi indicated that "the forces of the coordination framework are determined to expedite the passage of the budget law during the coming period, in order to enable the Iraqi government to implement its government program."
He pointed out that "this program needs financial allocations, and the disbursement of these allocations depends on the budget legislation."
Yesterday, Wednesday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee reviewed the outputs of its meeting on the budget, as the meeting included discussions on supporting the private sector, returning their canceled contracts, and completing lagging projects.
