The Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed, on Tuesday, that there is no crisis in the salaries of employees.

“We hope that Al-Kazemi will solve the salary crisis within 24 hours, as he stated, and we are not responsible for his statements,” committee member Majid Adab said in an interview with Al-Furat News. “This crisis is fabricated, and it is a political crisis par excellence, and we provide the media with information about the reality of what is happening through members of the House of Representatives, and we believe that there is no crisis in salaries basically.

” “The success of the government is reflected in the parliament, with a lack of pressure from citizens and a lack of resentment, and we wish the government’s success in its work,” he added.

He pointed out that “the revenues are the responsibility of the government, whether maximizing or distributing revenues, and salaries is the responsibility of the government. There is no need for parliament in this matter, neither to legislate a law nor pass a resolution, and all the powers are granted to the government,” stressing that “oil is exported naturally in addition to the existence of other revenues such as taxes.” Customs, agriculture and others.”

It is noteworthy that the government is facing a severe financial deficit in securing the salaries of employees, while Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi announced during his visit to Dhi Qar province on Monday that the salary crisis will be resolved today {yesterday}.  LINK

MilitiaMan:  So as we can see the Government is telling the people that the government is in charge and responsible to pay the salaries, just as they are in charge of the taxes, customs, agriculture, etc..

The PM is on record that he intends to begin tomorrow, yet he even said so yesterday, too. The white papers are completed, therefore, to pay salaries, then they’ll need to give notice or they they just did give it, in the above statements by the PM.

What the white papers have is imo the rate at to which they will be paid.

My view is that they have every intention to go to a market economy, therefore, the rate should not be at a program rate. Hence, that is why they had taken so long in paying them..

The next play is the citizens get message by text or what have you.. They are down to the wire and have called for holidays, at a very interesting time too…

This is getting so good now.. imo! Love it! ~ MM

DeepWoodz:  Totally agree! Key word for me (wishful human thinking) is “change” in the clip…
We are confident that the reform and change process will lead to a more robust economy and contribute to raising the living standards of our people.”

MilitiaMan:  Something to note in more detail is also the change you focused in on.. I did see that and liked it as well. Notice they RESOLVED the salary crisis yesterday and will pay tomorrow.. Very telling information.

Once something is resolved, then they next step is execution of the payments.

Who pays the payments? Banks do, per the order from the government.. Fascinating, things are underway to pay!

Lets see what they share with us each day now. I can’t imagine them sending out notification they salaries are being paid, without them know how much the payments will be. That will leak out.. imo.. We shall see.. Imo… ~ MM
