The head of the Parliamentary Labor, Social Affairs, Immigration and Displacement Committee, Raad Al-Dahlaki, presented, on Monday (March 29, 2021), a proposal for a roadmap to be adopted if the government and some political forces insist not to reduce the exchange rate of the dollar .
Al-Dahlaki said in a statement received on the IQ NEWS website , "The rise in the exchange rate has a direct impact on all classes and segments of society without exception, but its impact on the poor and middle classes was greater considering that their monthly income is very limited." The purchasing value of the dinar is not less than 20 %.
He added, "The option of lowering the exchange rate is the most appropriate option, but as a result of the government’s reservations and some political forces regarding considerations affecting the protection of the local product and preventing the continuation of currency smuggling, not to mention the tightness and difficulty of time and the difficulty of changing the exchange rate in the budget and to ensure that the scene is not more complicated than what is complicated." Therefore, there are alternative solutions that can be adopted as a road map that we think is necessary to mitigate the harm of raising the exchange rate and at the same time maintain the advantages of that step . "
"The first of these steps is the necessity to provide allocations (high cost of living) for categories of employees and retirees whose salaries do not exceed 600 thousand dinars, in addition to the inclusion of those covered by social care in these allocations, " Al- Dahlaki explained .
He pointed out that "the second step to reduce the harm to the rest of the community is to provide the items of the ration card completely and consistently without cutting in the dates or the number of materials each month, in addition to taking practical steps to support the local product by raising the tax on imported goods that have a competitor." A local person capable of covering the market needs, while allocating acceptable sums of money to small projects in order to promote them and provide job opportunities to eliminate unemployment . "
Al-Dahlaki pointed out, "The completion of these steps takes place through the urgent formation of an economic crisis cell, which includes in its membership representatives from all parliamentary committees in addition to representatives of the ministries of planning, finance, industry, trade, labor, immigration and the interior. And that its sessions be emergency or periodic, according to the facts of the situation. "https://www.iqiraq.news/political/15370--.html
