MP expects endorsing 2013 federal budget law in mid-January
Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) MP Abdul Hussein al-Yasiri of the Parliamentary Finance Committee expected that 2013 federal budget will be ratified in the first half of the current January 1, 2013
Yasiri stated to Iraqi News on Monday “The regular session of the Iraqi Parliament will be held after the end of its legislative holiday on 8th current January. After a week of its first regular session, the parliament will vote on ratifying the federal budget of 2013 as the budget’s law draft has been discussed from all sides and what is left is a little.”
MPs and politicians attribute the delay of passing 2013 federal budget to the political disputes among the parliamentary blocs.
