Member of Parliamentary Finance Committee Ahmed Hama revealed that the report of the Financial Supervision Bureau for the year 2019 indicated that Basra Governorate is one of the governorates that did not spend the full money, indicating to his committee that the reality of services in the city is negative, and that those entering it through its gates curse the politicians supervising the city, He says.
Hama said to Watan Bank's program that Al-Mirbad will broadcast that the Financial Administration Law recently approved by Parliament includes a paragraph for the recycling of investment financial sums that have been modified for the purpose of being beneficial to Basra Governorate and the rest of the governorates, by preserving what is allocated to it in the 2020 budget or the budgets after it.
He added, however, that the implementation side and spending allocations for the governorate need to deal and cooperate with multiple entities, which are the Ministries of Planning and Finance and the local government, and in contrast that it is not possible to take advantage of any allocations monitored, especially since the implementation apparatus in the state is flabby and weak.
He pointed out that he was expected from the government of Abdul-Mahdi to transfer the financial budget to the performance and program budget instead of adopting the budget for the items, to avoid many of the previous observations and matters.
The local government in Basra had revealed to the Watan Bank program that the Ministry of Finance had funded the province with 900 billion dinars during the governorate’s budget for the past year 2019, out of the total amounts allocated to it from all chapters in the budget of one trillion and 400 billion dinars.
