MP: It Is Difficult To Approve The Budget Of 2018


A member of the parliamentary legal committee Sadik al-Laban confirmed the difficulty of approving the budget of 2018 in light of the adherence of the political blocs to increase financial allocations to some provinces.

Al-Laban said in a statement to the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA / “Some of the deputies of various political blocs are calling for increased financial allocations for the liberated provinces for reconstruction, and others are calling for the addition of petrodollar to oil-producing provinces, which was in previous budgets, and this impede the adoption of the budget in the current time”.

The House of Representatives, again failed to pass the law of the budget this year, because of the threat of some political blocs to withdraw from the sessions in the absence of the inclusion of the rights of liberated areas and oil-producing provinces.
