To that, the representative of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Siham Al-Moussawi, held the Minister of Finance, Ali Allawi, responsible for the delay in the payment of salaries to the employees, confirming that the funds are available from oil revenues and others with regard to revenues from border crossings, taxes and other resources, and Parliament has nothing to do with the delay in the payment of salaries of employees.
For her part, the MP for the Forces Alliance, Mona Hussein, told "the information" that "the government does not have any justifications for delayed payment of salaries, pointing out that the parliament's vote on the borrowing law gave the government more flexibility in providing salaries." 25 n
