Kurds boy­cott Iraqi par­lia­ment ses­sions once again

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

A Kur­dish MP re­vealed that Kur­dish MPs boy­cotted a ses­sion of the Iraqi Par­lia­ment at which the Na­tional Al­liance in­sisted on read­ing the first draft of the Bud­get bill. Dr. Riz­gar, a Kur­dish MP in the Iraqi Par­lia­ment, told a KDP source that when the ses­sion be­gan, the Na­tional Al­liance Bloc in­sisted on read­ing the first draft of the Iraqi Bud­get bill. “That’s why we boy­cotted the ses­sion and with­drew,” he said. Dr. Riz­gar also said that there was no quo­rum af­ter their de­par­ture, so the Speaker post­poned the ses­sion un­til next Mon­day. The Kur­dish MP said they would main­tain their stance un­til their sug­gested amend­ments to the Bill are taken into con­sid­er­a­tion. He in­di­cated that un­less Bagh­dad and the Re­gion can reach an agree­ment, the bud­get will prob­a­bly be passed without the Kurds, as hap­pened last year.
