Allawi Tells The Iraqis About What Is Going On Behind The Scenes Before Leaving The Ministry Of Finance
Posted On2022-08-18 By Sotaliraq Baghdad The Minister of the White Paper, Ali Abdul-Amir Allawi, opens up to the Iraqis about what is going on behind the scenes of the Ministry of Finance, with a 10-page resignation letter in which he summarized the experience of two years in the government, describing it as the exhausting and sad process in every sense of the word.
Allawi, the minister frustrated by the situation in Iraq, says that secret networks of senior officials, businessmen and politicians control the economy sector and withdraw billions of dollars, with protection from parties, parliamentary immunity and weapons.
Allawi’s speech was dominated by complaints about working in a ministry that expelled its experts and employed incompetent people connected to the parties under the pressures of corruption and politics. A new one that will lack full legitimacy unless it recognizes the opposition outside Parliament, ruling out the interference of the Najaf authority and external parties in the current events.
As part of his assessment of the work of Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s government, he openly spoke about its weakness in curbing corruption and foreign interference, stressing that addressing corruption is not sufficient with words and investigation bodies, but rather by removing the protection provided by parties to the corrupt.
So, Allawi resigned and said what he had and left, and what he revealed is known to most Iraqis, and it is a drop in the sea of Iraqi ministries, but he is the first minister to come out of power and speak publicly about his experience in the government. LINK
