On Thursday, the representative of Basra Governorate, Ahmed Al-Rubaie, criticized the current caretaker government after the cabinet decision to transfer the funds of Basra Governorate from the operating budget to the Ministry of Youth and Sports, pointing out that this decision will have negative and harmful repercussions on the citizens of Basra.
Al-Rubaie said in an interview with "The Information", that "we reject the cabinet's decision to transfer amounts of petro dollars and border crossings from Basra Governorate to the Ministry of Youth and Sports to implement the requirements of the 25th Gulf Championship."
He added, "The Council of Ministers must reverse its decision and implement the championship requirements from central funding and not from Basra's funding, which is supposed to contribute to the establishment of vital and urgent projects that the province currently needs, especially since Basra is going through multiple crises, including the salinity of the water, which negatively affected the street." Optical in conjunction with high temperatures and high humidity.
He continued, "Basra needs, in addition to its allocations from the operating budget, petrodollars, and ports to urgent and rapid additional allocations to address the problems that the province suffers from."
He pointed out that "the financing of this sports carnival is from the central government and not at the expense of the entitlement of the people of Basra and its development projects," stressing that "the representatives of Basra will have a position in the event that the decision issued by the current caretaker government is not reversed."
