"

 

Slevana and added, "The House of Representatives voted on the grounds of the Peshmerga part of the federal system and given percentage of the Ground Forces Command's budget," and points out that Parliament voted to adopt the former oil agreement between Erbil and Baghdad. "

In parallel parliamentary vote on budget items, cafeteria Parliament witnessed a heated mobility between deputies of the Kurdistan Alliance and other blocs, aimed at resolving the differences to pass the budget of the region, as it is without reducing.

Suggest MP Huda carpets, in a statement to the newspaper (range), that there "was the night before the vote, the heads of political blocs to pass the budget, including the region's share political agreement", and found that "a large part of a coalition of state law was with the vote to keep share the Kurdistan region as it is. "

 

It has drawn the parliamentary bloc of state law, "harsh criticism" of the President of the House of Representatives, after announcing the end of the session.

 

And it saw the press center of the Parliament, a verbal argument between Congress coalition of state law, and the Chairman of the Finance Committee, who was speaking at a news conference.

 

In turn, says MP Zaher al-Abadi, said in an interview to the (range), "The year's budget was adopted in 2016 as the rate of $ 45 for the sale of a barrel of oil," and adds that "the budget deficit up to 24 trillion dinars."

Sounds to me like they passed the amendments for the "DRAFT BUDGET" and tried to change 17% to 13% to the Kurdistan region which failed. This is particularly disturbing due to the fact that we believed that they were voting on the final version of the 2016 Budget on Wednesday which was suppose to have included the HCL.

 

We continue to wait patiently for the dust to settle.

BAGHDAD / Baghdadi News / .. announced the parliamentary finance committee member Masood Haider, Thursday, that the general budget for the 2016 law voted by parliament in its session yesterday, the President of the Republic will be approved in the next few days.

 

Haidar said to the reporter / Baghdadi News /, "The Presidency of the Republic to ratify the general budget for the 2016 law during the next few days, while ruled that the law remains without authentication President of the Republic until the end of the 15 day period prescribed by the Constitution."

 

"The right of some of the blocks that have objections to the budget bill after voting attic recourse to the Federal Court," describing "those objections political bidding."

 

It is said that the Council of Representatives voted 45 Minutes, which held on Wednesday on the state budget for the year ended 2016. Law 21 / g

I have not found a translated Arabic to English copy of the Budget yet. Maybe after the President signs off on it and it is published in the Gazette, we will finally get to see in detail what is in it. :twothumbs:

So what I glean out of this article is that...the president will ratify the 2016 Budget in a few days but it won't be authentic until 15 days later.

 

"The right of some of the blocks that have objections to the budget bill after voting attic recourse to the Federal Court," describing "those objections political bidding."

 

This gives the right of "SOME BLOCKS? to file their objections to the Federal Court.

 

 At least they didn't refer to it as a "Draft Budget". :twothumbs:

DV, The POR will approve the 2016 Budget just as the GOI & HOR did in record time.  He will not wait the full 15 days given under the constitution but approve it in the coming days as stated in the article above.  Next step will be to publish in the Gazette in record time then we will all see each and every line item in the 2016 Budget.   Nothing will stop this forward progress to include objections from SOL.  The majority have full control over the few.... :twothumbs::bravo: :bravo:

      It looks like the HCL in principle is done.
      The Kurds will be paid their allocation retroactive beginning of 2020.
      Treat as a rumor. Not varafied. Your opine.

      Happy Friday all!
       
      I'm just going to give everyone a brief... briefing. 
       
      You know anytime the Gurus start harping on the "800" numbers, the news is slow. This time is no different... we've heard nada about anything HCL related in about a week.
       
      Bad news - we haven't heard anything HCL related.
       
      Good news - once we DO hear something about HCL, I think it's going to be an avalanche.
       

       
      That's it for the briefing! Told you it was going to be brief  
       
      Good vibes over in the "Go Iraq" thread  - I'd suggest hanging out with that crowd rather than the rest of the dinar rumors section, but that's just me.  
       
      Cryptocurrency is a topic of major interest to many of the members here... we have a dedicated section in the VIP area for it, but let's open this weekly update thread up for anything you want to say regarding crypto. BTC is currently at 10,400 ish, which is the current high for the day. Some pretty interesting news for crypto is on Baakt:

      Oil and gas laws: a crux of Erbil-Baghdad tension
      By Omar Moradi yesterday at 11:14 Iraqi forces drive past an oil production plant as they head towards the city of Kirkuk on October 16, 2017. Photo: Ahmad al-Rubaye | AFP The lack of oil and gas federal legislation has been the root cause of problems between Erbil and Baghdad since the Iraqi constitution was approved in 2005. Now there is a government in Baghdad that has shown its desire to resolve these problems through dialogue, and the success of the new Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) cabinet depends on whether the oil and gas issue is resolved with Baghdad.

      According to the constitution, it is the joint responsibility of both the federal and regional government to develop oil and gas resources through a particular oil and gas legislation. But as of yet, no such legislation has been passed, causing disagreements between the two governments.
      Iraq's parliament unsuccessfully tried to pass a law on oil and gas in 2007. Following that, Kurdish parliament passed its own oil and gas law that same year, allowing the KRG to handle and develop the region’s natural resources.

      The Kurdistan Region parliament’s oil and gas law gave it complete power over the region’s natural resources, much like an independent and sovereign country. The conditions of the oil market along with the law helped foreign companies invest substantially in the oil and gas sectors in the Kurdistan Region.
        Investments in Kurdistan Region’s oil and gas sectors reached its peak when oil prices were high pre-2014, surpassing $20 billion. But after oil prices fell in mid-2014, the Kurdistan Region and the rest of the world's oil investors faced a deficit. 

      This shock was especially big in the Kurdistan Region. The federal government in Baghdad cut Kurdistan Region’s share of the federal budget in 2014, after which a big financial crisis rocked the Kurdistan Region. The impact of the crisis is still seen in the Region's economy. The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) still owes money it borrowed during this time.

      The KRG and federal government should resolve oil and budget problems in order for stability and certainty to return to the economy of the Kurdistan Region - otherwise a big opportunity will be missed.

      The Iraqi constitution can help in this matter. According to Article 112 of the Iraqi constitution, the running of oilfields in Iraq is the responsibility of both federal and regional governments, or the provinces the oil lies in.

      According to the oil and gas law of the Kurdistan Region, the KRG and its Ministry of Natural Resources are free to sign contracts with foreign companies that serve the interests of the Kurdistan Region. That is why the KRG signed nearly 50 contracts with oil companies after 2007 which are producing substantial amounts of oil and natural gas.
        The KRG planned to produce a million barrels of oil per day, but couldn’t do so because of the Islamic State (ISIS) onslaught and falling oil prices after 2014. But because of its robust oil and gas legislation, it still has the ability to produce vast quantities of oil and gas in the coming years.

      The Kurdistan Region’s oil and gas law shouldn’t be abandoned in negotiations between the KRG and federal government on the issue of oil sales and production. The oil and gas law of the Kurdistan Region allows for the setting up of a box for oil revenues. The law also considers the formation of some national companies for the exploration, production, and marketing of oil in the Kurdistan Region. The establishment of these national companies can reinvigorate the oil sector in the Kurdistan Region.

      With regards to the sale of oil, the Kurdistan Region can give all or some of the oil it produces to the federal government via national companies and ask for its fair share in return. This will not reduce the Kurdistan Region’s control over its oil sector, as the KRG has its own oil and gas law, is running these sectors in its own way, and has established its own mechanism and infrastructure for the last 10 years.

      Oil and gas disputes with Baghdad to be addressed once new KRG cabinet formed
       Sangar Ali | 8 hours ago Share share
        An oil field in Nasiriya, in southern Iraq. (Photo: Reuters/Atef Hassan)   Kurdistan Iraq Erbil Baghdad Oil Gas  A+AA- ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – A delegatiom from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) will visit Baghdad to discuss disputes over Iraqi oil once the new Kurdish government is formed, a member of parliament in the Iraqi capital said on Wednesday.
      Oil and gas shares and distribution have been the subject of a long-standing dispute between the KRG and the federal government of Iraq since 2003.
      Following the formation of the new Iraqi federal government in Oct. 2018, both Erbil and Baghdad agreed on the 2019 national budget bill, which requires the Iraqi government to deliver the salaries of KRG employees along with some financial compensation as the KRG hands over the export of 250,000 oil barrels per day (bpd) to the Iraqi oil marketing company – SOMO.
      Since the beginning of this year, the Iraqi federal government headed by Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi has delivered the salaries of the KRG employees on a monthly basis, but the KRG is yet to deliver the prescribed amount of oil to Baghdad as indicated in the Iraqi national budget bill.
      Over the past few weeks, many Iraqi lawmakers have complained in parliament about the delayed KRG oil transfers, questioning the silence of the Iraqi government in that regard.
      On Tuesday, Abdul-Mahdi, for the first time, issued a warning to the KRG for failing to meet its commitment in the delivery of oil to Baghdad. The warning came after pressure from multiple factions in the Iraqi parliament.
      A lawmaker for the largest Kurdish faction in the Iraqi Parliament says that once the new KRG cabinet is formed, which is expected to happen in June, an oil and gas delegation from the KRG will visit Baghdad to hold talks. 
      “Today [Wednesday], we, as a group of Kurdish lawmakers, met with Abdul-Mahdi for a short period to discuss the matter. We couldn’t discuss things in details, but agreed that it would be best for the KRG delegation to visit Baghdad and address the issue,” Aram Balatayi, a member of Iraq’s Oil and Gas Parliamentary Committee, and spokesperson for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) faction in Iraqi Parliament, was quoted as saying on the party’s official website.
      “The Kurdistan Region has an obligation to hand over the oil to Baghdad,” he continued.
      “For more than ten years, the Kurdistan Region put effort into and created policies for its oil sector, so it is not easy to now seamlessly hand over the industry to Baghdad. Either the Iraqi government should pay dues of oil companies in the region, or the Kurdistan Region has to sell its oil to pay off those dues. Kurdistan can’t just hand over the oil to Baghdad and Baghdad then refuse to pay the companies.”
      Balatayi noted that both Erbil and Baghdad could reach an agreement on who would pay the dues and debts of those companies. If it is the KRG, then the Kurdistan Region “has to continue selling its oil,” but should Baghdad decide to absorb those financial obligations, “then this is another subject, and we will have our say at that moment.”
      The Kurdish lawmaker also noted that Kurds do not have a representative in Iraq’s SOMO and are not sure if they would be given a seat at the table to represent their interests.
      “There is still an ideology of centralizing power in Baghdad. We have issues with that, and a mechanism should be developed to deal with this,” he added.
      Gulizar Rashid Sindi, the deputy head of the Kurdistan Region’s Energy and Natural Resource Parliamentary Committee, stated that both the Kurdistan Parliament and the new KRG cabinet should cooperate in this regard.
      “The Kurdistan Region urges the resolution of the energy question through dialogue and the proper mechanisms,” Sindi told the official KDP website.
      “The Kurdistan Region will not be bound by Baghdad’s request if it isn't in the interest of the people of Kurdistan.”https://www.kurdistan24.net/en/news/d227436b-1f58-4cc9-b560-4c8e64843239
