Amendment of union budget law contributed to the increase of the budget deficit by 4.5 billion dollars, Iraqi lawmaker Hassan al-Khalati said.

In a statement, Khalati said that there was an urgent need for a vote on supplementary budget expected to be held this week.

As a result of the recent developments in Iraq, we voted on this modified budget, he added.

The necessity of approving the amendment is related to allocations of IMIS and other ministries, he added, noting that these amendments must be approved within the framework of the Iraqi laws.
