Iraqi Parliament to Vote on Budget on Wednesday: Speaker


ERBIL - The Iraqi Council of Representatives is expected to hold a session on Wednesday to vote on the budget bill for the year of 2021, Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halbousi has confirmed.

According to a statement by the presidency of the Iraqi parliament, Halbousi has informed the lawmakers of a session to be held on Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 pm in the efforts to vote on the budget bill.

Names of those who will attend the session, as well as those who will be absent, will be revealed to the public, the parliament speaker vowed.

This comes while the legislature earlier on Sunday delayed the vote on the budget until further notice as disputes among the Shia factions have so far continued.

As for Erbil and Baghdad, most of the issues on the budget have been resolved and the two sides are waiting for the parliament’s approval to the deal between them.
