Tamim said in a statement during the Seventh Sulaymaniyah Forum: “I was assigned to prepare the budget for 2023, 2034 and 2025, and we had limited options and great challenges, and we started with the issue of preparing the budget by going towards defining what are the priorities according to the government program in a realistic way."
He added: "When we went to the expenditures, we found that the expenditures had greatly inflated with limited resources, and this prompted us to reconsider the expenditure chapters and the need to define these chapters in a manner consistent with the government's directives."
He pointed out: “The amount of the deficit is about 60 trillion dinars, and part of this deficit is a paper deficit.”
He continued, "In this budget, we added 21 trillion dinars to salaries, and this is not a governmental decision, but rather the decision of the previous parliament and the two previous governments, in addition to the emergency support law to install contractors."
And he indicated: “This government did not take a single decision to appoint one person, even if he was in the offices of ministers and the new government..and adding operational amounts to the budget was a result of the decisions of previous governments and the previous parliament."/ End 7 To receive more news, subscribe to our channel on Telegram[/rtl]
