The Parliamentary Finance Committee Reveals An Alternative Solution To The Food Security LawEarth News/ Member of the Finance Committee, Representative Aref Al-Hamami, revealed today, Thursday, the alternative solution to the Emergency Food Security Support Law.

Al-Hamami said in an interview with Earth News, “There is controversy over the food security law, and we believe that paragraph 24 of the Iraqi constitution is clear and explicit, and this paragraph is final and binding on all authorities.”

Al-Hamami added that “there is a previous Federal Court decision that prevents the House of Representatives from legislating any law that includes a financial aspect, and today, a clarification was issued by the Federal Court that dealing with emergency issues such as electricity and health is the competence of the government.”

He pointed out that “there are other ways than to legislate this law, including resorting to the advances for everything that happens to the country. If the country needs food and strategic storage, the government has the right to borrow from what fills the need, and these doors are clear and easy to monitor and prevent suspicions of corruption.”

The member of the Finance Committee added, “We support every law that serves the Iraqi people and does not violate the constitution and laws.”
