Tariq Harb said in a press statement, “The constitution prohibits the parliament from making changes to the draft budget law,” stressing that “the parliament members have no right to change the paragraphs related to the Kurdistan region’s share of the budget.”
He added, “The draft budget law is a state action plan, and the government is responsible for it, and the parliament cannot change it because it does not bear responsibility for its failure in the event that it fails, so it is not permissible to change it without referring to the government,” stressing that “the authority of the House of Representatives in the draft budget law is limited and not Absolute, as in all bills. ”
Harb explained, “The constitution, under Article 62, granted the House of Representatives two powers with regard to the draft budget, which are to conduct transfers between the chapters and chapters of the budget, and to reduce the total amounts of the budget.”
With regard to the share of the Kurdistan region and whether it delivers a specific amount of oil or the entire oil file, Harb stressed that “the House of Representatives is bound by what is stated in the draft law, and the representatives do not have the right to make a change in that, and if they want to make a change regarding the share of Kurdistan, they must return the project to the government.” “.
