Vote on 2019 budget law expected on Tuesday: Finance MP


Hoshyar Abdullah, Parliament's Finance Committee member expected on Sunday that the vote on the law of the 2019 federal budget would take place on Tuesday or by the end of the week.

The state institutions and ministries have not yet submitted their final computation, due to the lack of a financial plan in these government institutions, Abdullah said in a press statement.

The Parliament member revealed that most of the budget articles have been "changed in a better way especially with regard to services."

A number of Parliament members said earlier that Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi, Parliament Speaker Mohamed al-Halbousi, and President Barham Salih agreed to adjourn voting on the remaining candidates for vacant ministries in the new government.

The tripartite deal comes to enable the Parliament to prioritize the preparation of the 2019 budget law, according to MPs.
