In an interview with (Baghdad Today), Sarout said that "disagreements over some paragraphs and articles in the 2021 budget bill are still present, especially with regard to the region’s share, the dollar exchange rate, foreign loans and others." And he indicated, "the political forces, the Finance Committee and the Presidency of Parliament, will complete the dialogues in order to reach a final agreement on the contentious paragraphs and hold a new parliament session dedicated to passing the budget, which will be determined after reaching a final agreement." He added, "We expect that the new parliament session will be tomorrow, Tuesday, after reaching a final agreement between the political forces during the meetings and dialogues, which will be held today." The House of Representatives was supposed to hold its session devoted to voting on the draft federal budget law for the current year, on Sunday, but the persistent differences between the political blocs pushed it to postpone and leave the parliament room. Yesterday, Sunday, a parliamentary source inside the House of Representatives stated that the Presidency of Parliament officially informed the MPs to postpone the session to vote on the budget. The source said in an interview with (Baghdad today), "The Presidency of the House of Representatives has officially informed the representatives to postpone the voting session on the 2021 budget, without setting a new date for it until the moment, after the failure of the dialogues and negotiations."

They have had 18 years to get something done....Now the Closest they appear to have been in years they can't seem to play Grab Ass with themselves in a Dark Room or maybe I need to say Closet.

 

I will wait until the Iraqi People Go Portland and Seriously start burning crap down.....I don't mean tires either.

 

Sooner than later Iraq is going too become West LA, San Francisco or Detroit and there wont be anything left to save.

 

The idea of the Grande Port of Faw and the Central Hub of the Middle East will fade away.......Iraqi people will again turn back to the given way to make money.....Blowing crap up and terrorism and again join Iran....Biden wont stop them and he will most likely send them US Dollors to do it.

Parliament has not set a date to vote on the budget

 
Baghdad: Abdulrahman Ibrahim 
 
The Chamber of Representatives was almost empty during the session scheduled for the vote on the draft federal budget bill yesterday, the day before, and its fate became unknown, without setting a new date for its passage.
This scene in the political reality came because of the recent sharp disagreements regarding this law, and according to press statements by members of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, "There are four points on which I disagreed that caused the vote to be suspended."
Committee member Muhammad al-Shabaki revealed that the most prominent of which are some controversial points in Article 11 related to the share of the Kurdistan region, foreign loans, investment projects and the development of regions. .
In turn, a member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Sherwan Mirza, confirmed that "the fate of the budget bill has become unknown due to the new differences that have emerged between the parliamentary blocs," indicating that "new disagreements appeared between the parliamentary blocs that caused the budget vote not to take place."
He added, "Some blocs submitted new demands in addition to determining the exchange rate of the dollar and did not reach an agreement between them," noting that "the share of the Kurdistan region has nothing to do with postponing the meeting."
Regarding setting a new date for voting on the budget, Mirza said, "There is no new date for voting on the budget, and the meetings ended without setting any date for the next session."
The MP for the Saeron bloc, Salam al-Shammari, held political blocs that he did not name, responsible for the continuous delay in approving the general budget for the current year.
Al-Shammari said in a statement, that "the continuous delay has harmed the economic and financial situation of the country and its people, and is evidence of the desire of some to weaken the role of Parliament for political and electoral goals."
He added, "Sairoun's alliance with the approval of the budget quickly will never be an obstacle to it as long as it serves the country's situation and improves the condition of its citizens."
Al-Shammari stressed, "the need for the political blocs to be aware that the continuous delay is weakening the parliament and its influential role in particular and the political process in general, and it must accelerate the fulfillment of its duty towards its people."
The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, warned of the consequences of postponing the vote on the draft fiscal budget for 2021, and advised the blocs to forget their differences and approve them as soon as possible.

Lock all the doors....lock the bathrooms......lock the doors to the cafeterias......Post armed guards at every exit in Parliament.  If they try to leave, stick that rifle in their sphincter tube and pull the trigger.  It wouldn't take long for them to get the message.   I am so sick of this nonsense I could scream.

      Greetings,
      Here is some of the Best News I have read lately and just maybe we can still WIN this game in the last half of the seemingly last quarter!!!
      The Iraqi parliament has elected Kurdish politician Fouad Massoum [Fuad Massum] as president, succeeding Jalal Talabani.
      The 76-year-old is a founding member of Mr Talabani’s Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) party.
      Associated Press reports that Massoum is considered a soft-spoken moderate, known for keeping good relations with Sunni and Shiite politicians.
      According to BBC News, the presidency is the second major government post to be filled, after Salim al-Jabouri was elected as parliament speaker last week.
      The next step will be for Massoum to select a candidate for prime minister to try to form a new government.
