Arif Tay­four: Kurd is not against budget ap­proval but wants its rights and does not ac­cept pun­ish­ments

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Arif Tay­four, Deputy Speaker of the Iraqi Coun­cil of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Kur­dis­tani Al­liance Bloc, an­nounced that the cur­rent draft of Iraq’s 2014 budget law has a lot of in­jus­tices and dis­tor­tions against Kurds and it looks like a pun­ish­ment against Kurds.

“Kur­dis­tani Al­liance Bloc does not stand against the budget law ap­proval, since it is very cru­cial for the people of Iraq and Kur­dis­tan Re­gion,” stated MP Tay­four. “How­ever, since we are rep­re­sent­ing the Kur­dish na­tion, we need to de­fend their nat­u­ral rights as well.”

In a state­ment for the press, MP Tay­four re­sponds to a num­ber of Iraqi par­lia­ment mem­bers say­ing “we have com­ments about the draft budget law due to the fact that it puts con­di­tions on the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s oil pro­duc­tion, does not spec­ify the re­quired budget for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Ar­ti­cle 140 of the per­ma­nent con­sti­tu­tion as well as spec­i­fy­ing a huge and un­jus­ti­fied budget for the se­cu­rity min­istries.”

Deputy Par­lia­ment Speaker vowed that if the budget law is amended they would be the first ones to vote for it.

MP Tay­four re­minds ev­ery­one about the role of the Kurds in the col­laps­ing of the Sad­dam Hus­sein’s Baathist Regime and the es­tab­lish­ment of the new Iraqi state in 2003 and that Kurds are part­ners in to­day’s po­lit­i­cal process.

“There are some achieve­ments re­lated to the Re­gion and the Na­tional Al­liance and es­pe­cially the State of Law Bloc have to stop wast­ing time and ig­nor­ing Kur­dish rights and rec­og­nize them.”
