Kurdistan’s budget bill to be approved soon

Erbil: A media adviser to the speaker of the Kurdish parliament said that he expects the draft budget law to be approved during Sunday’s session. “A session was held on Sunday to debate the Kurdistan region’s budget. Another session will take place this afternoon to debate proposals submitted by parliamentarians on the budget bill,” Tareq Johar told Aswat al-Iraq news agency. On Saturday, Johar said that opposition blocs in the Kurdish Parliament could not return the draft budget law to the government after they had failed to gain a majority of votes for their proposal. Only 34 parliamentarians voted in favor of the proposal, while 66 members voted against, Johar indicated. Three parliamentary blocs- the Change Bloc, the Islamic Union and the Islamic Group, had announced that they would stand as opposition blocs in the Parliament, refusing to participate in the current Kurdish government. aswataliraq info
