Deputy: The borrowing law will be passed in Parliament according to this form
A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Naji Al-Saeedi, confirmed, on Tuesday, that the borrowing law sent by the government will be passed inside the parliament, but after making amendments to it and removing unnecessary expenditures.

Al-Saeedi said that "the numbers in the borrowing law sent by the government to the House of Representatives are greatly exaggerated," indicating that "the law includes revenues of approximately 57 trillion dinars and its revenues are approximately less than 20 trillion dinars, which means that the 2019 budget is 190 trillion dinars." .

Al-Saeedi added, "The borrowing law will be passed within the House of Representatives, but after making amendments to it and removing unnecessary expenditures, so that the sums do not exceed the salaries of employees and retirees and the rest of the salaries in addition to the necessary expenses in the health sectors and other important sectors."

And he continued, "The sums that may be included in the law in the end do not exceed ten to twelve trillion dinars for the remaining months of this year."

[Baghdad-Where]
Representative of the State of Law coalition, Kata'a al-Rikabi, said that Parliament faces a more difficult dilemma than the election law and the disputes surrounding it.

Al-Rikabi said in a press statement, "There is an agreement to settle the new election law and disputes about it during parliamentary sessions next week. If the issue of the election law is resolved, there will remain a more difficult issue than this law, which is to amend the Federal Supreme Court law."
And he stated, "The Federal Supreme Court had a shortage of one of its members. Now it is missing two judges," after the death of one of them last week.
He pointed out that "the presence of the court is very important, as no elections can be held without the presence of this court with all its members," stressing that "disputes over amending the Federal Supreme Court Law are still present, and these differences are political and administrative, technical and legal disputes, and there is difficulty in resolving them."
Yesterday, the representative of the Sairoun coalition, Mahmoud Al-Zagrawi, explained what was slapped as the “political goal” behind the suspension of the Federal Supreme Court.
Al-Zajrawi said that "there is a political goal behind disrupting the Federal Supreme Court, as this obstruction hinders the holding of early elections and elections in general, so no elections can be held and the court is suspended," noting that it is "the only body authorized to certify election results."
He pointed out, "There are issues and disagreements that can only be resolved through decisions issued by the Federal Court. There are also forces that want these differences and issues to remain pending, and for personal and partisan goals as well," stressing that "there are parliamentary efforts to resolve the amendment of the Federal Court law as soon as possible." .
And last Thursday, a member of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, Salim Hamza, revealed the main points of contention that impede the passage of the amendment of the Federal Court law in the House of Representatives, stressing that the issue is political and not legal.
Hamza said that "there are a number of points of disagreement between all political forces about the draft amendment to the Federal Court Law, including those related to voting inside the court and whether it will be by consensus or majority."
He added, "The second disputed point is who nominates judges and experts in Islamic jurisprudence and legal scholars, and determines their number and regulates the method of their selection," noting that "the other disputed point is, do the jurists have the right to vote or express opinion only."
A member of the committee emphasized that "the political will, if it is available, can pass the draft amendment within the next two weeks."

The Iraqi parliament approves the borrowing law

 2020-06-24 15:57:19

Shafaq News / The Iraqi parliament approved, on Wednesday, the law draft that allows the government to resort to internal and external borrowing to cover the country's fiscal deficit.

A parliamentary source told Shafaq News agency that the majority of the parliament voted, during the session, in the presence of 168 MPs (out of 329), to pass a draft law submitted by the government regarding internal and external borrowing.

The government has submitted the law draft that includes an amount $ 5 billion of external borrowing, and 15 trillion dinars of internal borrowing to address the financial deficit in the country.

The Iraqi government is struggling to secure employee salaries and other operating expenses due to the collapse in oil prices, which has paralyzed large sectors of the world economy. The country relies on the revenues from the sale of crude oil to finance 95% of the country's expenditures.

It is expected that the Iraqi economy will face a 10% of contraction

Iraq government gets parliament's nod for massive borrowing

 

Approval for raising $5bn abroad and 15 trillion dinars locally comes amid a cash crunch caused by fall in oil prices

Iraq’s parliament authorised the new government to borrow up to $5 billion (Dh18bn) from abroad after the fall in oil prices caused a financial crunch.

The vote on Wednesday came a few days after international rating agency Fitch forecast the economy to shrink 9 per cent this year and debt to skyrocket.

The agency said public debt would rise to 80 per cent of gross domestic product in 2020-2021 from 47 per cent last year.

Iraqi MP Jaber Al Jaberi said pressure to pay government salaries prompted parliament’s overwhelming approval of the borrowing, despite misgivings about increasing the nation’s debt

If they pass their borrowing law does that mean bye bye to the CBI's reserves?
