Member of Parliamentary Finance Committee Haneen Al-Qaddo revealed, on Saturday, an upcoming meeting between the new Finance Minister and the committee to discuss the government's plan in the face of the crisis of salaries of employees and retirees, indicating that delayed payment of salaries or reducing them will lead to the overthrow of the government of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazimi during several Months.
Al-Kiddu said in a statement to "Information" that "the Parliamentary Finance Committee intends to hold a meeting during the next two days with the new Finance Minister Ali Abdul-Amir Allawi to discuss the salary crisis and provide it through future government plans."
He added, "The reduction or delay of salaries is not legally possible due to the existence of binding legislation that no current or future government can manipulate."
Al-Qudo said that "everyone is required to solve the crisis away from the employee and retirees taking responsibility", noting that "the salary crisis will lead to the overthrow of the government within a few months and will reignite the street again." End / 25D
