The Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed, on Wednesday (May 12, 2021), the determination of the number of employees in the Kurdistan region in the budget, while revealing the reasons for the delay in the payment of their salaries.
A member of the Finance Committee, MP Ahmad al-Hajj, said in a statement to the Iraqi News Agency, followed by IQ News , that "the reasons for the delay in paying the salaries of the region’s employees on time and without any cut are due to the fact that the paragraphs pertaining to the region in the budget law are not applicable, as they are only laid down to give legal cover To sell oil in the region, "indicating that" the defect exists on both sides, Baghdad and Erbil. "
He added that "the region’s oil sales are supposed to be evaluated to be deducted from the Kurdistan’s share, and the rest is sent by Baghdad, but it has not been sent," noting that "the region has not also sent 50% of its non-oil imports to Baghdad."
Al-Hajj pointed out that "the budget specified the number of the region's employees at 682 thousand employees, but the region says that the number of those who receive salaries (one million two hundred and fifty-five thousand)", pointing out that "the best solution is everyone's commitment to the budget law and its implementation."
