Today, Saturday, the representative of Diwaniyah province, Aziz Sharif al-Mayahi, threatened to boycott the voting session on the draft budget law in the event that Diwaniyah was not "fair".
Al-Mayahi said, in a statement received by Mawazine News, that "we were, on all occasions, supporters of the political process, and Diwaniyah and its people were among the first to sacrifice for its success, and we made countless sacrifices for Iraq, the perpetuation of its democratic experience and the fight against terrorism." He added, "Unfortunately, Despite these sacrifices, the penalty was neglecting the most basic rights approved by the constitution to preserve the citizen and provide him with a decent life.
And he continued, "Al-Diwaniyah and everyone knows that it is from the poor governorates and does not have any additional resource or border outlet to support its economy, and even agriculture, which was the only support for its people, has entered a dangerous stage as a result of drought and lack of water quotas, which makes us before a serious stand to do justice to Al-Diwaniyah and save its people from By including two important files in the budget.
He explained, "The first of these files is the allocation of job grades for their children as a result of the lack of other livelihoods and the high rate of unemployment in them, which created a population migration, especially from the youth segment, to other governorates to search for job opportunities and exclude them from the decision to stop job grades in the budget. The second file is through Increasing the governorate’s allocations in the budget, in a way that provides it with sufficient space to complete the infrastructure and establish small and medium projects, in addition to establishing a free zone for trade exchange and a commercial airport, due to the governorate’s strategic and vital geographical location, which allows revitalizing the status of the governorate, provides job opportunities for youth, and supports its local economy.
Al-Mayahi stressed, "We will work hard and continue to support the government, its program, and the parliament to legislate laws that are in the interest of the citizen, but we, out of honesty and legal, moral and humanitarian responsibility towards Diwaniyah and its people, will boycott the voting session on the budget if our demands and justice for the oppressed are not included."
