He said in a press statement today that "presenting the laws of the budget and elections in the agenda of the parliament's meeting on Sunday is not more than shedding the ash in the eyes," noting that "the differences between the political blocs on the laws of the budget and elections still going on and there is no signs to resolve the crisis especially as each political bloc looking for its own interests away from the interest of the country. "

He added that "the political process in the country was built on the basis of quotas and compatibility and interests of political parties and blocs and because of this matter we have reached the financial and administrative corruption and the disruption of important laws within the House of Representatives."

He explained that "this tug on the laws of the budget and elections from some political blocs just electoral propaganda, especially as we are coming to the elections during the few months, so this crisis was fabricated to disrupt the work of the House of Representatives whenever these laws included in the agenda."

"It is not possible to delay the budget, and some are trying to embarrass us as an electoral aspect and we are keen to complete it," Abadi said at his weekly press conference yesterday
