Parliamentary Legal Committee: These are the reasons why the date for voting on the general budget has not been set yet

The Parliamentary Legal Committee revealed the reasons for not setting a date for the voting session on the general budget law so far, while it suggested that it be presented on the agenda of next week’s sessions and beyond.

Committee member MP Raed Al-Maliki stated, in a statement to the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA), that “the delay in the voting session on approving the general budget law so far is due to the fact that the Parliamentary Finance Committee did not complete its meetings with the ministers, governors, and officials of the concerned sectoral authorities and is still continuing to work daily.”

He added, “next week and beyond will be a suitable date for presenting the general budget law on the agenda of Parliament sessions for the final vote.”

The Head of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Atwan Al-Atwani, had pledged to work on completing the draft budget law and submitting it to the House of Representatives according to the date set by the State Administration Coalition (next Wednesday) for a vote on it, stressing that the Finance Committee has come a long way in checking and reviewing the draft budget law.
