A member of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, Sajjad Salem, confirmed today, Friday, that there is a parliamentary tendency to pass the oil and gas law, stressing the need to legislate it in this session.
Salem said to (Baghdad Today), that "passing any law in parliament, if we want to pass it, must be subject to the political will, but there is a parliamentary tendency to pass the oil and gas law, as it is a strategic law that will regulate the oil relationship between the provinces and between the federal government and between the latter and the region."
On the twentieth of last March, the head of the Parliamentary Oil, Gas and Natural Resources Committee, Haibat al-Halbousi, revealed the existence of a political agreement to pass the oil and gas law in this session.
Al-Halbousi told (Baghdad Today), that "16 years ago, the law remained on the shelves of Parliament, but the political agreement decided to proceed with its passage, and this was included in the government program of Prime Minister Muhammad Shia'a al-Sudani as well."
Al-Halbousi said, "This law has become the urgent need for its legislation, because oil belongs to all the Iraqi people, and therefore this law will guarantee the right for all."
Al-Halbousi added, "The good relationship between the federal government and the regional government will soon prompt the legislation of this law."
