Leader in the framework - The percentage of the Kurdistan region in the 2023 budget has not been decided yetInformation / special.
The leader in the coordination framework, Turki Al-Atbi, confirmed, on Monday, that the proportion of the Kurdistan region in the 2023 budget has not yet been decided.

Al-Atbi said in an interview with Al-Maalouma, that “80% of the items of the 2023 budget have been decided, but the file of the Kurdistan region’s percentage has not been resolved yet.”

He added, “The Finance Committee will hold 3 sessions in the next 48 hours to resolve the proportion of the region and other files,” noting that “there is political support in order to speed up the resolution of budget items and put them to vote.”

He acknowledged that “political consensus is very important in resolving differences over some points and items of the 2023 budget, but we hope that all provinces will be fair according to a national vision, especially since there are provinces that suffer from very high rates of poverty and unemployment.”

The Parliamentary Finance Committee has been in intensive meetings for weeks to resolve the items of the 2023 budget, which includes very complex items, with a fiscal deficit of more than 30%.
