    He added, "We are working on preparing the economic report for the current government," noting that "there is a growth in development."
    He stressed that "the government has coordinated with the House of Representatives to use its powers in approving the Food Security Law," noting that "work is underway to restore the Food Security Law through constitutional and legal methods."
    "Iraq faces great challenges in the electricity sector and its provision needs financial allocations," noting "an increase in Iraq's share of oil extraction, and its costs must be approved in a special budget." Nazim said.
    He explained that "presenting the draft food security law came as a solution to the problems in the absence of a budget," noting that "the schools will receive 1.4 million students in the first grade of primary school, and these need a budget in this regard."
