Lawmaker says Masum's disapproval of budget is mere formality

President Masum lauds lifting ban for Kurdish airports
Lawmaker with the Kurdish Alliance Majed Shinkali on Thursday said that president Fuad Masum's disapproval of budget is mere formality.
He asserted the budget bill will pass 15 days after being submitted to the presidency in accordance with the Iraqi constitution.
According to article 73 of the Iraqi constitution, the budget bill will be passed within 15 days even without the approval of the president.
The lawmaker also asserted that the legal tenure of the parliament has ended, making it impossible for the budget bill to be debated again.
