[rtl]The Secretary of the Iraqi Communist Party, Raed Fahmy, said that the parliament is so far from approving the state's general budget law, especially after the political differences that have occurred during the past two days between the parties to the state administration coalition, which may herald the transformation of the differences into a new political crisis that hits the situation in general. .
Fahmy said in an interview with the media of the Iraqi Communist Party, followed by (Iraq Today), that "what happened indicates a big
and real problem in the parties to the ruling coalition, including the fragility of the situation within this formation, and the fragility of the agreements signed within it, which have been concluded. Most of them are far from the constitution and its articles.[/rtl]
[rtl]He added, "In fact, some side agreements are placed above the constitution, and this is a bad tradition set by the powers that divide the state."[/rtl]
[rtl]And he pointed out that "the new budget law is also devoid of the final accounts, which are similar to many budgets that previously passed political agreements without obligating governments to submit the final accounts."
Fahmy pointed out that "there is selectivity in dealing with constitutional articles, laws and legislation, especially in dealing with the financial management law, and in the file of passing the tripartite budget law."[/rtl]
[rtl]And Fahmy personified a real danger in the current budget law, as it suffers from the difficulty of its sustainability, in addition to the abnormally high numbers, as it amounted to 199 trillion dinars, which indicates a clear exaggeration of some of the numbers contained in it. the draft law.[/rtl]
[rtl]He also pointed out that "the increase in the percentage of the operating budget, which reached 134 trillion dinars, was at the expense of the investment budget that will be financed from loans, which is a very dangerous and strange approach."[/rtl]

And he believed that "the large numbers, and the political consensus that is far from the economic vision of the budget law, will lead the country to enter into difficult problems, and they must be well addressed."
It is worth mentioning that Waed Fahmy graduated from the London School of Economics, and obtained a master's degree in economics from the University of London in 1977, and a high diploma from the University of Paris-Sorbonne in 1984.[/rtl]
