A parliamentary committee proposes a solution to the controversial points regarding the oil and gas law

Kazem Al-Touki, a member of the Parliamentary Oil, Gas, and Natural Resources Committee, stated on Monday that political discussions between Baghdad and Erbil are necessary to resolve the controversial aspects of the oil and gas law. Once these discussions have occurred, the law can be submitted to Parliament for a vote.

According to Al-Touki, the committees responsible for dealing with matters related to the oil and gas law have completed their discussions. The goal was to prepare the law for presentation and discussion among the government, political parties, and the Ministry of Oil. Additionally, there were discussions between the region and the Ministry of Oil regarding the same law.

According to him, it is expected that the oil and gas law will be discussed in the next legislative term of the Parliament. The relevant committees were able to resolve all the technical controversial points in this law except for the issues related to the region. Discussions with Kurdistan are required to move forward with the law.

“He stated that resolving the legal matter requires dialogue with the region’s political parties, especially since the technical committees have resolved all controversial points about the law, except for some points that require political intervention.”
