Mubasher: Mustafa Al-Kazemi, the Iraqi Prime Minister, stated that many budget decisions have been changed in Parliament and the 2020-2021 budget has been manipulated, and that there are those who do not want the government to succeed.
Today, Thursday, Al-Kazemi said that the government has filed an appeal against the budget before the Federal Court, and added, "I hope that the court will play its historic national role to correct mistakes," according to the official account of the Council of Ministers on "Twitter."
Al-Kazemi stated that the exchange rate was raised, but in exchange for that, $2.5 billion was put to support the poor, the social protection network, and support for food commodities, but there were those who tried to change the numbers in the House of Representatives.
The Prime Minister indicated that the electricity situation in Iraq is not satisfactory and that the problem is very complex, alluding to the waste of billions of dollars on electricity, and that the current government has revealed many projects that have been suspended for reasons related to poor planning and corruption.
He continued, "We revived some projects, and last week we opened one of the largest electrical stations in Samarra, and within months we will finish the second phase, bringing the total production of it to more than 1,200 megawatts."
Al-Kazemi stated, "The age of this government is one year, not seventeen, and with this we faced all challenges in order to preserve the blood of Iraqis. Iraq was on the verge of a civil war or a war between two important forces in the region, and we came with this government in order to spare the blood of Iraqis and create hope."
