Samson: The House of Representatives ignores the salaries of employees in today’s session

9th November, 2020

The House of Representatives did not include in the schedule of its session for today, Monday, a special paragraph to discuss the draft law on financing the fiscal deficit (the borrowing law), which would contribute to providing salaries for employees

The Finance Committee in the House of Representatives believes that expressing its opinion on the bill will be after hosting the Prime Minister and the Ministers of Finance and Planning with the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, while members of Parliament agree to pass the law in an amount limited to salaries only

Committee member Jamal Cougar said, “After the second reading of the borrowing law, the committee called for a series of important meetings with the prime minister, the ministers of finance and planning, and the governor of the Central Bank to learn about the government’s plan to adopt economic reforms,” according to Al-Sabah newspaper. He added, “We will discuss the loans and the draft budget for 2021, after that we will determine our position in the committee to pass the borrowing law

The House of Representatives intends to reduce the amount of borrowing from 41 trillion dinars to 15 trillion dinars, in order to secure employee salaries only   LINK

The House of Representatives, represented by the Parliamentary Finance Committee, granted the green light to the government to disburse and release employees’ salaries.

The reporter of the Finance Committee, Ahmed Al-Saffar, told {Al-Furat News}, that “the meeting with Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and Minister of Finance Ali Allawi witnessed a dialogue and discussion on the draft law on financing the fiscal deficit (borrowing) and salaries.”

He added, “During this week, we will pass the borrowing law and the government will start distributing salaries,” likely “to vote on borrowing on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.” “We agreed during the meeting to release salaries, and parliament in turn pledged to pass the law, but not with the amount requested by the government (41 trillion dinars),” Al-Saffar stressed. He explained, “We told the Minister of Finance that he will start distributing salaries until the law is approved this week.”

Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi met today with members of the Parliamentary Finance Committee regarding the borrowing law. “There was a positive atmosphere dominated by a feeling of shared responsibility that prevailed in Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s meeting with the head and members of the Parliamentary Finance Committee,”

Al-Waraa’s spokesman, Ahmed Mulla Talal, said in a tweet. He added, “The employee’s sustenance and the need to secure it quickly was a common concern, and we look forward to voting on a law to cover the fiscal deficit next Thursday to start launching employees’ salaries.”  LINK
