Baghdad today - Baghdad
Some paragraphs of the federal budget are still captive to political differences, while the coordination framework seeks to gather the scene and proceed with approval according to consensus.
The House of Representatives had voted during the Thursday and Friday sessions on some paragraphs of the federal budget, while others were postponed to today, Saturday, especially Articles 14-15-16-17, especially 14 related to the management of Kurdistan oil funds.
The representative of the Al-Fateh Alliance, which is affiliated with the "State Administration" coalition, Karim Al-Muhammadawi, commented on the possibility of voting on the deferred paragraphs of the budget law during today's session.
Al-Muhammadawi told (Baghdad Today) that "the House of Representatives postponed voting on some paragraphs of the budget law, due to the existence of political differences over them."
He added, "Voting on it during today's session depends on the existence of a political agreement on that."
He explained, "There are efforts that will be made by the political forces in order to reach final solutions with the aim of voting on the deferred paragraphs of the budget law and proceeding to pass the entire law during today's session."
After the deep differences raised by the draft federal budget law between the main parties in the Kurdistan region, the differences moved to the center and under the dome of parliament by objecting to Articles 14-17 in the draft law and refusing to vote on it, especially with regard to the region's oil revenues.
While observers of political affairs believe that "the draft budget law every time before it is passed, it witnesses difficult labor because of the partisan interests that were and are still taking precedence over the interests of the country and the citizen."
