KIRKUK,Former MP of the province of Kirkuk Hassan Tauran called for guaranteeing the rights of the Turkmen regions in the federal budget law of 2019.
"The current challenge is the reconstruction of the liberated areas of the Turkmen region, calling for the return of the displaced people, the rehabilitation of government facilities and the provision of services and projects, which are urgently needed, especially in Tal Afar, Tuzkhurmato and Kirkuk," Turan said in a press statement.
"The province of Kirkuk needs to buy electricity and develop a system of lifting waste and improve the services of the health sector, and the establishment of strategic projects provide employment opportunities for graduates and unemployed people, such as Kirkuk airport and Kirkuk oil refinery."
He pointed out that "the Kirkuk dues from the budget is 4% compared to the proportion of the population of the total population of Iraq, while the current budget set only 1%," and called for reconsideration of allocations and increase them, as provided for in Article 112 of the Iraqi Constitution.
