Iraqi MP Arif Hammami calls on the government and the Ministry of Planning to control population growth.
Hammami said there is no law regulating the reproduction in Iraq. Increased public awareness of the importance of limiting fertility is the basis for controlling population growth in Iraq.
He said it was the duty of the government to find a real solution to the problem of population growth through legislation and planning.
In recent days, the Iraqi Ministry of Planning announced that, the population census has been postponed to October 2024 due to delays in approving the budget, adding that the population will reach 43 million by the end of this year.
