Parliamentary law resolves the controversy - the budget has become legally enforceable and cannot be modifiedShafaq News / The Parliamentary Legal Committee confirmed, on Tuesday, that the General Budget Law for 2021 has become legally enforceable and that no amendment can be made to its provisions.

A member of the committee, Salim Hamza, told Shafaq News, “Parliament voted on the General Budget Law for 2021 and the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, approved the law, and thus it became legally enforceable, and it is not possible to amend or add an article to the budget law.”

He added that “the media statements of some deputies and officials regarding returning the budget law to parliament to make an amendment to its articles is illegal,” noting that “laws that the parliament votes on and gets the approval of the presidency cannot be returned to parliament.”

Last week, the State of Law Coalition announced that six articles of the General Budget Law for 2021 will be appealed to the Federal Court.
