State of law - We will not allow the passage of Kurdistans share of the budget except under these conditions[Baghdad-Where]
The State of Law Coalition confirmed, on Monday, that no agreement will be allowed for the Kurdistan Region’s share of the budget after the region’s delivery of oil and other revenues.
The deputy for the coalition, Mansour Al-Baiji, stressed in a statement. Not to allow any party trying to agree on the Kurdistan region’s share of the budget for the current year because no party has the right to negotiate the wealth of the central and southern governorates and guide them to the Kurdistan region without the region handing over its revenues to the federal government.
He pointed out, “The delay in approving the budget until now due to the lack of access to a formula to end the problem of the region’s share is unacceptable, and the parties that delay approving the budget until now, and the country is exposed to major crises due to the failure to approve the budget and bear the catastrophic consequences of not approving it.
Al-Baiji said:
He added that “most of the members of the House of Representatives, especially the representatives of the southern governorates, insist on handing over the region’s oil and revenues from the border ports and airports to the federal government. Without this matter, they will not pass the region’s share of the budget, and any party trying to agree at the expense of our destroyed governorates will be held accountable within the parliament and not negotiate at the expense of our governorates at all.”
