Samson: Al-Kazemi’s advisor: Stabilizing contracts and appointing health professionals and higher certificates are not linked to the budget
3rd August, 2022
The technical advisor to the Prime Minister, Haitham al-Jubouri, confirmed today, Wednesday, that there is no government direction to reduce the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar, and while he acknowledged the difficulty of approving the 2022 budget, he made it clear that fixing contracts and appointing health professionals and holders of higher degrees is not linked to its approval.
Al-Jubouri said, to the official agency I followed (the first news), that "the revenues generated by the rise in oil prices are temporary and cannot be relied upon in drawing up long-term economic plans, as they fall within the ebb and flow during the current time, which depends on global demand and supply."
He added, "Real stability lies within non-oil revenues, as they are fixed and can be controlled according to internal legislation and have nothing to do with international prices, which represent collection, improving the tax base and what the state obtains from customs, in addition to encouraging investment," noting that "these things can create economic stability in the country and an increase in the revenues generated.”
He pointed out that "oil revenues have actually increased and can be invested in some development projects, but they cannot be relied upon for long."
On approving the budget law and decreasing the exchange rate, al-Jubouri stressed that “the federal budget for 2022 is difficult to decide during the current year,” explaining that “fixing contracts for those who have actual service for two years and appointing health and medical professionals for cadres covered by the medical gradation and holders of higher degrees are available even if The budget has not been approved.
He pointed out that "the provision of job grades absolutely is a matter that needs and depends on approving the budget and providing sufficient financial liquidity to provide these degrees." He pointed out that "the government does not have any direction to reduce the exchange rate of the dollar against the Iraqi dinar." LINK
Tivon: This is actually amazing. Is he telling on the GOI? He is basically saying that Al-Kazemi may be the only possible avenue to address the dollar exchange rate through the EFSL.
Given the fact that he already adjusted the contracts regarding the salary and wages through the ministries. Because approving the budget I am sure lies upon the one for next year. Because A job grade is a grouping that encompasses positions with the same or similar values in order to assign compensation rates and structures.
It codes down to living wages, median wages, and prevailing wages. So I can understand the long-term value of this statement from Al-Jubouri. Because I said the EFSL is only for this year.
So don't be dismayed by this info. It's just a standard thing. Because he tells you that services, contracts, and medical graduate are taken care of without a 2022 budget.
Because they always talk about short term and long term. The EFSL is for short term. So this is very enlightening to hear as Al-Kazemi wants to reduce the dollar exchange rate without relying on the givers to do so.
Which is why the demonstrators are taking to the streets because they realize the government are the ones in the way. Imo

Tivon: Thank you for pointing thus out. We are almost out of the woods. What a week we have before us. Imo
Are you guys reading this? Interim Government? You guys know an interim government has emergency powers right?
What is the current emergency now? Wages. Salaries. Inflation. Food. Etc. What is the EFSL again? Al-Jubouri already came out and said the government will not raise the IQD. So who dies that leave us with? The Interim Government to enact everything while the transition period moves towards early elections.
Interim Government: A provisional government, also called an interim government, an emergency government, or a transitional government, is an emergency governmental authority set up to manage a political transition generally in the cases of new nations or following the collapse of the previous governing administration.

Tivon: What more do you guys want? How long have we been trying to get this across? You are looking at it now. As I said I don't think the citizens will have to wait for the elections and the formation of the GOI to see purchasing power. Because Al-Kazemi as an interim government will have the neccessary powers to give that to them now. This is what the EFSL is for because it covers what again? All Contracts & Procedures. Which includes what? Wages & Salaries that have already been adjusted and is waiting for the HOR approval. Because the news coming out now supports a immediate change to take place with reforms so it can have some wheels. I'll share more once I gather more information. Imo
