    The Al-Fateh Alliance identified the most prominent laws that will be included in the next session of the House of Representatives. The MP for the coalition, Ahmed Al-Kanani, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA), today, Sunday that "the House of Representatives are expected to hold its regular session next Thursday or Saturday of next week."

    He added, "The most prominent laws that will be on the agenda are the second reading of the deficit financing law presented by the government and the Federal Court law."

    The Finance Committee in the House of Representatives confirmed the existence of a tendency to limit the amount of borrowing in the fiscal deficit law by securing salaries, ration items and medicines.

    Committee reporter Ahmed Al-Saffar said in a previous statement to the Iraqi News Agency (INA) that "the committee listened to the government's viewpoint regarding the financial spending of the Deficit Financing Law."

    He added, "The Finance Committee is waiting for an answer to the question sent to the Prime Minister's Office regarding the possibility of securing salaries in the event that the disability law is not approved, after which the amount of the borrowing will be determined."

    He pointed out that the second reading of the Deficit Financing Law may witness a reduction in the amount of borrowing to be limited to securing the salaries of employees and retirees, social care, ration card items and medicines.
