Revealing parliamentary pressure to legislate the oil and gas law

A member of the Oil, Gas, and Natural Resources Committee, Bassem Ngheimesh Al-Gharibawi, stated that parliamentary pressure exists to pass the oil and gas law within the House of Representatives in Baghdad.

Most political forces in the House of Representatives intend to pass the law next semester, according to Al-Gharibawi.

He wanted to establish legislation ensuring fair wealth distribution in the oil and gas-producing governorates.

During a recent statement, he emphasized the necessity for the country to enact the oil and gas law to resolve the conflict concerning oil resources between the central government and the region. He also mentioned that there is a growing demand from parliament to pass this legislation during the upcoming legislative term.

The Al-Fatah Alliance parliamentary bloc has confirmed that there is a broad political consensus to pass the oil and gas law. Parliament is waiting for the government to complete the final draft of the law.
