Shafaq News/ The Finance Committee of the Iraqi Parliament denied on Wednesday the news that indicated that a new salary scale had been prepared for employees, and considered them to be just rumours.
Committee member, Jamal Ahmed Kojer, told Shafak News Agency, "Preparing a new salary scale is the prerogative of the government, which is the party concerned with preparing it and sending it to Parliament."
Cougar added, "The current government does not have the authority to send any bill to Parliament at the present time, as it is a caretaker government based on the decision of the Federal Court."
A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed that there is no project or discussion in the corridors of Parliament or within the committee, indicating that “the Federal Service Council, which voted on it in 2021, and after the completion of its staffing and allocations, will count state employees to determine the shortage and surplus of employees and prepare a new salary scale, to address The differences and the great disparity between the salaries of the employees of the ministries.
Cougar pointed out that there is a "large discrepancy between the salaries of ministries' employees, especially electricity and oil, compared to employees of other ministries."
The technical advisor to the Prime Minister, Haitham al-Jubouri, had confirmed last April that the 2022 budget was completed by the Ministry of Finance, noting that political pressures had hindered the approval of the new salary scale.
News websites and social networking sites reported parliamentary statements, stating the preparation of a new salary scale for employees in Iraq, which would address the disparities and differences between employees.
