A single paragraph on Parliament's agenda today.. Will the emergency support project pass?
 

Baghdad - people  

The political forces opposing the emergency food support law are seeking today to obstruct its passage in various ways, while the forces supporting it are determined to proceed with its legislation.  

  

 

And the representative of the coordination framework, Aref Al-Hamami, told the official newspaper and followed by “Nas” (June 8, 2022): “There is a possibility for the Federal Supreme Court to issue a state order to stop the law in the event that it is legislated by the House of Representatives, as it is a clear constitutional violation because it contains a financial aspect that will begin to The shadow of the daily caretaker government, in addition to containing many suspicions.”  

  

For his part, MP Walid Al-Sahlani said that "services represent the biggest obstacle that most governments suffer from, and therefore it is necessary to create positive climates at the level of financial coverage, as well as successful administrations, according to the contexts of integrity and cleanliness, as this matter has become required and inevitable."  

  

Al-Sahlani indicated that "many disagreements occurred over the food security law, which is an exceptional law and has multiple views between the different forces on forming the government, which means that it falls under the category of (arms) and will be challenged."  

  

As for the representative of the Sadiqoun bloc, which is affiliated with the coordinating framework, Saad Al-Saadi, he said: "The rejection of the law expanded after the Kurdistan Democratic Party stood against its legislation."  

  

Legal expert Ali Al-Tamimi stated that the current law "cannot be a substitute for the budget stipulated in the constitution in Article 66 of it, but was found in order to confront an economic crisis after the increase in poverty rates."  

  

He added that "the law should show more details about the financial accounts that it created, which amount to 35 trillion dinars, and specify their resources accurately and where they are spent, by moving away from external borrowing and relying on oil imports, and it is necessary to determine the supervisory authority over these funds, accounts and amounts that came in Article 3 of this law.  

  

And he indicated that "the draft needs to be expanded and broader details instead of brevity, which is not appropriate for the name of the law, as the name of the law needs to be replaced and to be brief so that it is easy to implement on the ground."

This came during a meeting chaired by Al-Zamili, with the Labor Committee and parliamentary civil society organizations, during which they discussed the proposal for the retirement and social security law for workers, with the withdrawal of a statement received by "Al-Iqtisad News".

Al-Zamili directed, according to the statement, to "accelerate the preparation and maturity of this law in coordination with the Services Committee, stressing that" the law will contribute to creating more job opportunities and reviving non-functional sectors such as agriculture, industry, services and tourism, in addition to encouraging investment.

In another matter, the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament discussed, during a meeting of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, "the overlap in the tasks and powers of some committees, especially those that were split during the current session or that were created to keep pace with the country's oversight and legislative need."

Al-Zamili confirmed that there are efforts to "amend the internal system of the council according to the new variables, end the state of overlap and determine the authority of each committee to ensure that the tasks of the committees are not violated."

He pointed out that "the Integrity Committee is one of the basic committees to monitor government performance, and it is the first wall in the current and upcoming war against the corrupt, to curb corruption that has exhausted the state and the people."
