IQD 1 billion added to Kurdish allocations in budget: MPs

Kurdistan receives payment from Baghdad
Member of the Iraqi parliament's financial committee Ahmed al-Haj Rashid said Monday the quota of the Kurdistan region in the federal budget is IQD 8.5 billion.
Kurdish lawmakers Ariz Abdullah and Masoud Haider said the budget of the region made up 14 percent of the budget.
The parliament also voted to correct a mistake that led to allocating IQD two trillion instead of three trillion to the employees of Kurdistan and IMIS affiliates.
The federal government did not determine the quota of the Kurdish region in the budget. Instead, it said the budget will be determined based on the number of populations.
