The Labor and Social Affairs Committee called on the Presidency of Parliament to request the government to send the Social Security bill.
The head of the committee, Hussein Arab, said that the draft Social Security Law 5 years ago is still in the corridors of the Council of Ministers, and we ask the Presidency of Parliament to approach the government to send it to Parliament for approval, explaining that the problems that Iraq is currently facing are due to unorganized employment.
He stressed that there is competition between the Insurance Law and the Social Security Law, which affected its failure to send it to Parliament, explaining that the Labor and Social Affairs Committee has submitted more than one request to the government, but so far it has not sent it.
He indicated that the committee called on the Prime Minister to rely on the Social Protection Law, which provides for the amount of the social aid amounting to 420,000 dinars, while reliance is currently underway on Cabinet Resolution 254 of 2016, which set the ceiling for the subsidy at 175,000 dinars, explaining that the supremacy is the law and not the decision.
