, the representative of the State of Law coalition, Alia Nassif, demanded, today, Friday, to restore the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar to what it was in the past, calling for compensation to the people for the damage they sustained due to the increase in the exchange rate, before the month of Ramadan.
Nassif said in a statement, "We have demanded, through dozens of statements and press statements, to reduce the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar, and the Ministry of Finance did not respond, and we are used to seeing the concerned authorities, each of them throwing the ball into the court of the other, and thus the responsibility is lost, and the citizen pays the price." .
She added that "the State of Law coalition was the first to warn of the repercussions of raising the dollar exchange rate and its effects on people with limited income, and for this reason it was rejecting this measure, and indeed our expectations were correct and people were harmed, especially the poor class."
Nassif continued, "It would have been better for the government to fight corruption in the currency market and some banks owned by corruption whales and supported by political parties, instead of harming the simple citizen and fighting him for his livelihood."
She stressed that "the increase in oil prices formed a reserve cash block for the country, and despite that, borrowing is still going on, unfortunately, in addition to the continuation of financial corruption, which is a major cause of the suffering of the people."
Nassif indicated that "reducing the exchange rate of the dollar will not be enough, but we call on the government to compensate the people for the damage they sustained during that period, especially as we are approaching the month of Ramadan."
