A member of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Ali Al-Zubaidi, warned, on Tuesday, against passing the oil and gas law in a way that serves the region in the first place, pointing out that the near future portends heated discussions that precede the passage of the aforementioned law.
Al-Zubaidi told Al-Maalouma, “The oil and gas law will regulate the relationship between Baghdad and Erbil, and will spare the two governments many problems if it is prepared fairly and proceeds with its legislation in parliament.”
He stated that there is significant pressure on the government of Muhammad Shia’ al-Sudani to pass a law that benefits the Kurdistan region and make concessions accordingly.
He pointed out, “Basra oil cannot be in favor of the regional government, and therefore the future portends heated debates in parliament when the oil and gas law is put forward.”
Al-Zubaidi pointed out that “there are a lot of differences that have occurred in the political community after the law was put forward in order to pass it.”
