Today, Tuesday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee suggested that the President of the Republic would approve the budget law during the month of July.
“The President of the Republic is supposed to ratify the budget law during the current week or the beginning of next week as a maximum, and in the event that it is not ratified, and 15 days have passed since the date it was sent, it is considered ratification of the law, even if it is not ratified according to the law and the constitution.” This What was confirmed by a member of the Finance Committee, Moeen Al-Kazemi, to (Baghdad Today).
He added, "The implementation of the budget law will be at the beginning of next month, after which the government will be able to spend the funds allocated for projects, and the citizen will see a major change in services during the next stage."
He pointed out that "the government, over the past months, was without any financial allocations that would enable it to implement its program."
Earlier, the representative of the Sadikoun Parliamentary Bloc, Zahra Al-Bajari, called on the President of the Republic to expedite the approval of the budget.
Al-Bajari told (Baghdad Al-Youm) that "the budget has been delayed a lot, and the citizen has been waiting for years and not months for approving the budget, since some of the past years did not witness the passing of a budget, and therefore we call on the President of the Republic to expedite the approval of the budget for the purpose of launching job grades and service projects."
Al-Bajari added, "Among the most important projects pending in the budget is financing the completion of the large port of Faw project, and we are pushing quickly to complete it, because it has a great impact on Iraq in general and Basra in particular."
For his part, the President of the Republic, Latif Rashid, said earlier that the Presidency of the Republic received yesterday a copy of the public financial budget, which is still in the process of being studied.
The government is still reviewing the budget to ensure that the amendments that have taken place are not opposed to the government program, while government spokesman Basem Al-Awadi hinted, in press statements, the possibility of appealing some articles.
