Parliament Passes Budget, KRG Unhappy with Oil Revenues

The Iraqi parliament passed the 2013 budget of the 138 trillion Iraqi dinars ($118.5 billion) on Thursday, allocating to Kurdistan just a fraction of the oil revenue the region requested, reports Wall Street Journal.

Ibrahim al-Mutlaq, a member of the parliamentary finance committee, said the budget allocates 750 billion Iraqi dinars ($644 million) for oil companies operating in the semi-autonomous region, which include majors such as Exxon MobilGazprom Neft and Chevron; the Kurdish government had asked for $3.5 billion, including outstanding payments covering all exports between 2010 and 2013.

The budget decision adds to existing tensions between the Kurdish region and Baghdad over oil exploration rights, trade with Turkey and the redevelopment of oil fields in a disputed territory.

Kurdish lawmakers boycotted the session which led to the passing of the budget, Mr. al-Mutlaq said.

Jaber al-Jaberi, an Iraqiya MP among those who boycotted the session, said he expects the Kurds to go to the federal court to disrupt the budget.

The Ministry of Construction and Housing announced on Thursday that it has begun an affordable housing project which has an allocation of $2 billion (2,300 billion IQD) from the 2012 budget.

Istabrak al-Shawq  [Istabraq Al-Shouk] (pictured), the Under Secretary of the Ministry, told AKnews that the project will be completed within four years and three construction models for the project were chosen.

“The main problems that hinder the implementation of residential projects is the lack of suitable land.” He continued: “The financial allocations for this year are less than what we have planned for.”

Reports and studies prepared by non-governmental organizations and international companies say it will take Iraq 20 years to end the housing crisis.
