Shafaq News/ A source in the House of Representatives revealed that the Parliamentary Finance Committee voted on the proposed Food Security Law and sent it to the House of Representatives, while it was likely to vote on it next Wednesday.

 

The source said in an interview with Shafak News Agency, "The Parliamentary Finance Committee voted on the proposal for a food security law as a whole within the committee and sent it to the Presidency of the House of Representatives to set a session to vote on it."

 

The source added that "the vote of the Parliamentary Finance Committee came after repeated meetings that reached late hours of the night on the articles and paragraphs of the Food Security Law," explaining that the amount specified in the law amounted to 25 trillion dinars.

 

 

The source added, "Most likely, a parliamentary session will be held next Wednesday to vote on the law."

 

On June 4, 2022, Deputy Speaker of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, Shakhwan Abdullah, objected to the passing of the proposed law on emergency support for food security and development in its latest form, expressing his dissatisfaction with the provisions of a number of articles of the law because of its inclusion of unnecessary exchange doors that increase the risks of suspicions of corruption and waste of public money.

 

The Iraqi parliament had completed, at the end of last May, the second reading of the proposed food security law, after discussing it during a regular session held under the chairmanship of Muhammad al-Halbousi and the presence of 250 deputies.

 

The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, had recently called on the Iraqi parliament to expedite the vote on the emergency support law for food security, stressing that the vote should be kept away from "partisan, sectarian and nationalist auctions."

 

On Wednesday, May 18, 2022, the committee presented this proposal to the presidency of the Iraqi parliament as an alternative to the project submitted by the current caretaker government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazemi.

 

The law on emergency support for food security sparked controversy between deputies and political blocs and those interested in political affairs between supporters and opponents, before the Federal Supreme Court vetoed and invalidated the law because the current government is a government for the conduct of daily business and it is not within its powers to legislate laws, propose them or send them to the House of Representatives.

 

On Sunday, May 15, 2022, the Federal Supreme Court (the highest judicial authority in Iraq) decided to cancel the draft law on emergency support for food security and development based on a lawsuit filed by Representative Basem Khashan, while it indicated that the Al-Kazemi government is a conduct of business and is not entitled to send bills and hold contracts. Loans, appointment to senior state positions, exemption from them, or restructuring of ministries and departments.

Can someone explain to me how this law is being passed while the government is not yet seated after the early elections? I was under the impression that the new government needed to be seated to pass the HCL and work out the oil file by passage of a law. But here we are and it seems they could pass this law this week. I’m scratching my head in this one. Thanks

http://burathanews.com/storegefiles/629fa61f9eadd.jpg
 

Member of Parliament, Adnan Al-Jabri, confirmed today, Tuesday, that there is a Kurdish welcome for the initiative put forward by independent representatives to resolve the political blockage, while noting that the legislation of the “Emergency support for Food Security and Development” law means the survival of the caretaker government.

Al-Jabri said during his speech to the "Twenty" program broadcast by Alsumaria satellite channel, that "the independent representatives came from an audience rejecting all the events of the current political arena, and willing to change and pull the rug out from the blocs participating in the political process after 2003; because of the outcomes that led to the deterioration of the situation in Iraq." ".

He added, "The absence of organization and the lack of communication between the emerging blocs led to them obtaining only 40 seats," stressing: "We will not dissolve into the ready-made projects or for which the blocs participating in the political process were previously established."

Al-Jabri, an independent MP, expressed his hope "for a realistic political proposal that would pave the way for a radical solution to all events in the political process or to correct them."

The Kurds and the independents

With regard to the position of the Kurds towards the initiative of the independents, he indicated that "there is a Kurdish welcome for the initiative in order to proceed with resolving the political impasse."

He continued, "Our initiative will go ahead, but even if it is accepted, it will need time to negotiate and form a government, and therefore it will be extended until the end of the year," adding: "Independents will become a focus and will embarrass the political blocs."

*Food security

Al-Jabri explained, "Due to the current crises and the current high prices globally, there must be a door for the government to spend to support the various segments of society."

And he believed, "The legislation of this emergency support law will preserve the current government during the current year at least, and will give it comfort in dealing with the Iraqi street."

* Dissolution of Parliament

On the issue of dissolving Parliament, a member of the House of Representatives said, "The constitution defines this issue by voting by a two-thirds majority, regardless of the applicant, whether from the government through the President of the Republic or through the Presidency of Parliament," ruling out that "parliament held a session to dissolve itself by a two-thirds majority."

Countries are interfering with the West, and if we reach a complete blockage, the public will pressure the blocs, and the public will not remain silent this summer, the crisis will be resolved

*political opposition

 

Al-Jabri added, "We do not want an opposition to overthrow the prime minister because of personal differences, but rather we need a constructive opposition," stressing that "any government formed by one party without the other, we will witness the movement of the public on that party."
