Administrator.
“In pursuing job appointments, most of them were found to have adopted the standard of money, rather than partisan and sectarian quotas and even kinship that had previously been adopted.

The official stressed that "the government under the pressure of demonstrations, is seeking to dismantle the Mafia jobs in government institutions, which have turned into serious networks of corruption active in many areas, and reach those who do not deserve and the search for competencies," saying that "the superiority of money over patronage and favoritism is sufficient evidence that even political sectarianism In Iraq it is just a cover under which corruption and damage to public money are made. ”
For his part, Ahmed al-Saati, a member of the "rights" Iraqi (non-governmental) and is concerned with the affairs of fighting corruption in the country, that it went beyond jobs to the system of "contracts and daily wages."
According to al-Saati, “the germ of corruption in Iraq has become smarter, evolved from previous years of escaping the censor, and has taken many means to continue, but in terms of its characters and sponsors are clear, and these have not changed as parties and personalities active since 2003.”
He said that "the Ministry of Interior inspector is the most active in tracking job networks," pointing out that "it was found through all those who were investigated by the concerned, that the criterion of the job is what the applicant has the money, and not his sect or party or even close to this or The ministers, some of them benefited from this, while others do not know what is going on in their offices.

Party influencers in state circles exploited the need for ordinary citizens for job grades to sell to them. "I was forced to pay a mediator close to the director general of a directorate of the Ministry of Education, $ 14,000, to get the job grade," said Amjad al-Ali, a teacher who took a job a few days ago after paying a sum of money. He stressed: "I am not affiliated to any party or political party, and I borrowed most of the money to buy the job, and I got it after 12 years of graduating from university."
Iraq suffers from the dominance of a number of parties over its constituencies and capabilities, causing the loss of the rights of other classes of society, which have been marginalized and robbed of their rights to education and appointment.
