Baghdad / NINA / - Economic expert Hazem Hadi stressed that it is better to call the food security law the food sovereignty law, because security is part of sovereignty.
He told the National Iraqi News Agency ( NINA ) that the law on security or food sovereignty takes precedence over the current legislation as long as the general budget law will be delayed.
Hadi added that this law is an exceptional case that cannot be compared to any other matters outside the scope of providing food, because the original in any other details is the budget.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Muhammad al-Halbousi, indicated that the House of Representatives is now proceeding to legislate the emergency support law for food security and development submitted by the government.
Regardless of the objections to the formality of sending this law, the content of its paragraphs was adopted by the political forces to find solutions in coordination with the government.
In his speech on the 41st anniversary of the founding of the Badr Organization, he stated: The law came to
- address the food and drug crisis,
confront rising prices,
pay farmers' dues,
pay state obligations in the energy file,
provide the necessary allocations for reconstruction, and popular benefits that must be implemented by the state.
Al-Halbousi noted that the law of emergency support for food security is now in the corridors of the Finance Committee in the House of Representatives, and this committee is working with all its members to complete its discussion; In order for it to be approved to reflect positively on the performance of the Iraqi state. /End of 3
