Today, Monday, a member of the Parliamentary Oil and Energy Committee, Amjad Al-Aqabi, called on Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to open an investigation into the issue of granting all contracts of the Projects Department in the Ministry of Oil to foreign companies without giving any opportunities to Iraqi competencies.
“Unfortunately, there are figures in the Ministry of Oil who seek to discredit the projects department in the ministry by contracting with foreign companies, without paying any attention to the situation of engineers and their difficult living conditions, despite the numerous demonstrations they took to claiming appointment and rights,” Al-Uqabi said in a statement received by “Progress.” Noting that "most of the projects that go to the projects department, these influential personalities work to grant them to foreign companies without giving any opportunities to the Iraqi competencies who have the ability and the ability to implement all projects with the highest results and lowest costs."
Al-Uqabi added, “The excuses offered by these parties are that the Iraqi engineer has been sluggish and the work they are doing is inaccurate, which is incorrect, and the achievements of the Iraqi engineer are clear evidence of the Iraqi ability in various fields,” noting that “this situation cannot be tolerated, especially as we are passing through. At a critical and sensitive stage, the government spoke on several occasions about adopting a plan for reform and meeting popular demands. Therefore, the prime minister is personally required to intervene in this file and open an investigation to find out the reasons for these behaviors and hold those involved in them accountable on the grounds that they include a blow to Iraqi competencies and include suspicions of corruption.
