ERBIL — The Iraqi Council of Representatives on Wednesday passed the Emergency Food Security Bill, which was proposed by the federal government.

According to Iraqi media outlets, a total of 273 lawmakers attended today's parliamentary session, which was specifically held to vote on the Emergency Food Security Bill.

The bill, worth 27 trillion Iraqi Dinar, was approved after it secured a majority of the votes in the 329-seat assembly, reports said.

The Iraqi Supreme Federal Court last month rejected the bill on the base of alleged "contradiction with the Constitution", saying that the caretaker government of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi was not allowed to propose bills to the parliament.

However, the bill, which enjoyed the support of the trilateral majority alliance of the Sadrist Movement, Kurdistan Democratic Party, and Sovereignty Coalition, is expected to help the country survive the possible crisis caused by the Russia-Ukraine war on an international level and draught on a regional level.

SULAIMANI — The Iraqi parliament passed the food security bill on Wednesday (June 8), allocating 25 trillion dinars ($17 million) to the project bill.

The bill is an emergency draft law for food security and development, which aims to keep a food rationing program amid the increasing price of food worldwide. 

Rebwar Awrahman, an MP from the New Generation Movement (NGM) and a member of the finance committee in the Iraqi parliament, told NRT the law is important for Iraq and the Kurdistan Region. 

He also stated the issues of food and medication supplies was important to the NGM and if the project is implemented, the food-rationing program and medicine will also be provided for the Kurdistan Region. 

Sattar Irabi, a member of the parliamentary finance committee, said on May 31 the committee held meetings with the relevant parties and its members discussed the bill’s articles.

The food security bill was legalized under the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, despite an earlier ruling from the Federal Supreme Court on May 15 that the caretaker government did not have the authority to create legislation. 

The court said the new Iraqi government, which is yet to be formed, has the authority to legislate new laws.
