Baghdad (AIN) -The Kurdistani Alliance described the ratification of the Federal Budget of 2013 with absence of the Kurd MPs from the parliament session as "negative step."
Muhsen al-Sadoun, MP of the KA stated to All Iraq News Agency (AIN) on Thursday "The vote on the Federal Budget without reaching political consensus and in light of the exceptional political situation in Iraq is considered to be negative step."

"The important laws must be approved according to political consensus since the Kurdish component is one of the important social components, however the Kurds' demands over the budget were ignored," he added.
The parliament has lifted the regular session till March 19th, after completing the vote on the Federal budget on Thursday.
