The political dispute continues to impose itself in the corridors of the political process, which has led to the aggravation of the passage of important laws, including the disruption of approving the general budget, as new dates continue to be set for its approval, but they are not adhered to, and the general budget is not only the broken law, but the oil law Gas has been delayed for years, in addition to the general amnesty law, as well as the idea of amending the constitution.
The independent MP, Kazem Al-Fayyad, attributed this situation to the ongoing struggle between the political blocs to obtain gains.
Al-Fayyad told Al-Sabah: “The situation of the people and the problems resulting from delaying important laws must be taken into account, because the influential political class does not face the obstacles of daily life.” He added that “every sensitive law needs to complete a quorum and vote, and this is exploited by some blocs to conclude political agreements.” , stressing that “the approval of the general budget will take place in the event of political agreement and overcoming problems
between Baghdad and Erbil.
For his part, the political analyst and academic, Abd al-Amir al-Aboudi, classified the political parties into strong and weak, pointing out that there is a race between the political blocs to win allies.
Al-Aboudi told Al-Sabah: “Political parties are strong and weak, deep and superficial, and allied internally or externally.” He added, “These parties, with these diversities and differences, are waiting for the approval of the annual budget to catch others and get what they want, which they cannot get.”
It is natural.”
And he stressed, “These parties can pass whatever they want, taking advantage of the dispute between the rest of the parties, and a race is taking place between the political blocs to win allies and satisfy them; Even if their lines that they believe in are struck for the purpose of obtaining major political gains.” And he warned that “in this case, any law that requires everyone’s satisfaction can be passed, and this is very difficult.”
He explained, “For these reasons, the adoption of important laws is delayed, because it is imperative to satisfy the large number of blocs, and it is necessary to obtain gains from the other.”
For his part, the writer and journalist, Ali Abdel Zahra, confirmed that the political conflict is a major reason for delaying the passage of important laws.
Abdel-Zahra told Al-Sabah: “Important laws have a political aspect in the first place, and here the political conflict dominates the legislative performance, and laws are disrupted, as is the case with the oil and gas law.” He added that “the matter is also due to the fact that all governments since 2006 until now, They are consensual governments, and this is a brilliant description, because in reality it is an agreement between the political blocs on a set of interests for each component in it, and this agreement is revoked immediately upon completion.
formation of the government.
He added, “Therefore, we find that the political forces are looking for their interests in laws through which they try to win over the masses as well, such as the budget law.” A clear legislative and executive program for the election to follow, and thus be
obligated to implement it.
Abdel-Zahra concluded by saying: “The political forces have so far dealt in a primitive, emotional, sectarian and nationalistic manner, not programmatically, and when we reach parties in the sense of programmatic political forces, the important laws will not be disrupted.
It becomes a priority.”
