Kurdish, Sunni MPs boycott Iraqi parliament session over budget dispute

Kurdish, Sunni MPs boycott Iraqi parliament session over budget dispute
 

 

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — The Iraqi parliament could not convene on Wednesday to discuss 2018 budget due to a boycott by Sunni and Kurdish factions, but could reconvene on Thursday if budgets and elections are not discussed, in addition to other preconditions set by the absentees.


“The parliament session was delayed because of Kurdish and Sunni lawmakers boycotting it. It is unclear when the session will resume,” Masoud Haider, an MP from Kurdistan in the finance committee, told Rudaw from Baghdad.

The parliament lacked a quorum, therefore delayed the session.

Haider, a member of the Change Movement (Gorran), also said that heads of factions and parliamentary committees, including members of finance committee were meeting with the parliament’s speaker in a bid to resolve the problem and respond to the demands of Kurdish and Sunni party MPs.
 
The heads of factions and committees later announced that they will agree hold a session on Thursday on two conditions: the budget and the question of elections should not be discussed at that time, and preparations have to made within a week for a meeting between Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, the Speaker of the Parliament, and heads of factions and committees.
 
“The Kurds have nine observations about Iraq’s budget for 2018.” Haider told Rudaw, “No change has been made to address the nine points we had submitted to the Iraqi government.” 

Main observations by Kurdistan parties for the 2018 Iraqi federal budget:

- Restoring the Kurdistan Region’s share to its previous 17 percent

- Dealing with the KRG rather than provinces

- Determining a budget for Kurdish Peshmerga

- Naming the province of Halabja and determining its budget

- Dedicating petrodollar budget to all provinces with oil, gas or refineries

- Revoking the decision to reduce salaries of all Iraqi employees by 3.8 percent and giving it to Hashd al-Shaabi because war ISIS war has ended

- Reducing government's operating budget


“The Iraqi government gave us a calculated and elastic answer and made no change to address these points which we had demanded as parties of Kurdistan. That is why we will not be voting for the budget,” added Haider.

Abadi said on Tuesday he would refuse to allow the Iraqi parliament to change the KRG’s share of the 2018 budget. He insisted Erbil’s demand for 17 percent belongs in the past.

 

The Iraqi prime minister added that the KRG exported 2 trillion Iraqi dinars ($1.6 billion) of oil over the last three months of 2017. He claimed that production expenses amounted to about 313 billion Iraqi dinars ($261 million), leaving Erbil with an income of 544 billion Iraqi dinars ($458 million) monthly.


Erbil maintains that their revenues have been slashed by half since the loss of Kirkuk oil fields to the Iraqi government in mid-October, leaving the government with a net $337.4 million to spend on salaries after deducting for essential expenses and payments to international oil companies.

Baghdad is yet to agree to talks with Erbil over outstanding issues that worsened following an Iraqi military incursion into the disputed areas after the September vote for independence, despite many calls from the international community for the two sides to sit down and talk.

An IMF chief told Rudaw on December 22 that he believes Iraq's 2018 budget share proposals "do not suffice in our view to cover the needs of the Kurdistan Regional Government.”

Abadi is gonna have to learn what some of us Americans call "Tough Love" sometimes painful but effective. Until he shuts off ALL the money from Kurdistan this lame Parliament will continue to hold up progress. He should also call for early elections (like next week) to get rid of a few more of these crooks that are stealing tax payer money.

While cleaning up the corruption he certainly doesn't want to leave out the Kurdistan region, there is as many thieves there as in Baghdad...

Absolutely correct. They just had a month off, and none of the Sunni/Kurd objections were addressed. But (disclaimer) in my humble opinion, I don't believe this would hold up any measurable increase in dinar value. They are losing millions in auctions every day. They are hurting for money. Billions estimated to rebuild Mosul and all the other destroyed infrastructure. Abadi needs to make a move, and well before May elections to have a ripple effect. Don't despair, Artitech. Ride that horse.

Eburt,  I read the quote at the bottom of your post, the one that starts " I will persist until I succeed".  Hang in there my friend.  I believe this will happen.

I agree, we have been through this every year since I have been on this site.

 

IMHO - a few points to consider;

 

The GOI and CBI have sold their souls to the likes of the World Bank, IMF, Wall Street +  bond holders. They don't  have 100% control of their future and or actions. Too many big time international players at the table to let this dysfunctional bunch dictate reality.

 

There must be something in the 22nd ?? link of their DNA preventing them from working together for common benefit. Get over it and get to work.

 

The Al - Abadi coalition and CBI have accomplished a tremendous amount recently to bring Iraq up to international status. I personally did not realize or understand what a mess, across the board Iraq was and how much was needed to clean it up.

 

Semper Fi:salute:

Go RV:backflip:
