[millionday] A member of the Oil and Energy Committee, MP Furat al-Shara described the adoption of the federal budget before the end of April, as a miracle. Shara said in a statement to the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA / that "the quartet formed, which was formed by the House of Representatives, headed by First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Qusay al-Suhail to visit Kurdistan did not reach any agreement on approving the budget ."
[millionday] dkwsly that is very new -- and huge encouragement
[dkwsly] Maybe they were checking to see how close they are to an RV???
[millionday] He added, "Delay approving the budget caused deficit in the state budget and obstructed all service and economic projects."
