The head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan bloc in the House of Representatives, Ala Talabani, called for an end to the deductions imposed on the salaries of Kurdistan Region employees.
This came through an urgent message sent by Talabani to the presidencies, in which she said that the region’s authorities are still deducting twenty-one percent of the salaries of their employees, which are deductions that are no longer justified in light of the federal authorities ’commitment to pay the region’s employees’ salaries, after resolving the issue of the region’s share of the budget. What all parties have accepted.
Talabani added that the payment of the salaries of the region’s employees and social care and the dues of the Peshmerga forces that fight terrorism daily require swift work that goes beyond the formulas of reprehensible bureaucratic communications, while Talabani confirmed that the region’s authorities, in particular the Ministries of Oil and Finance, are required to provide quick answers to the reasons for continuing to deduct the salaries of employees in the region As well as not paying the prescribed amount of oil exports to the accounts of the Federal Oil Ministry.
