Baghdad, March 16 / March (Rn) - accused the decision of the Commission on oil and energy parliamentary for component Kurdish Friday limbs political (unnamed) to "block" Adoption of the law of oil and gas because of what I consider narrowing to file financial and administrative corruption in the oil sector and a clarification of the limits of the powers. Since the adoption of the Constitution Iraq, such as oil and gas law the most outstanding issues between Baghdad and Erbil, which is no less important for decision makers in the region on Article 140 of the Constitution relating to the disputed areas. The dispute is between Arbil and Baghdad on 41 oil contracts signed by the provincial government since 2007 until now and describes Baghdad in the absence of transparency in the signature. said Qassim Mohammed, told the Kurdish news agency (Rn) "We are now in the middle of the legislative session of the Second Council of Representatives has not been prescribed the law of oil and gas in spite of the ongoing negotiations in the Commission and the reason is that there are parties political beneficiary of the absence of law." said headquarters of the Commission that "some parties do not want the enactment of the oil and gas as it will put an end to financial corruption and administrative in the oil sector in addition to that will determine the powers and responsibilities of each party." says the region that the draft law focuses powers, however, the federal government in the management of oil wealth at the expense of the region and the provinces, It also passed by the Council of Ministers, without due process of law. pressing the Iraqi government toward that all the oil contracts signed by them by the Iraqi Oil Ministry, while calling the region the powers of the biggest in this regard so that it has the right to sign contracts without reference to Baghdad. The oil imports about 95% of Iraq's budget, but so far nothing in the law regulating the affairs of the country after the failure of the House of Representatives to pass Bdorth previous oil and gas law, which was expected to rise if approved oil situation.
