Shafaq News/ The head of the Parliamentary National Producer Bloc, Ibtisam al-Hilali, warned, on Tuesday, that any delay in the payment of the salaries of employees, retirees, and social aid for the current month of April before the Eid al-Fitr holiday will postpone its disbursement to the next month, demanding that it be paid before the end of Ramadan.
Al-Hilali told Shafaq News agency, "There are only 10 days left of the month of Ramadan, and Eid Al-Fitr will come at the end of this month. Therefore, the Prime Minister, Muhammad Shia' Al-Sudani, must issue a directive to the Ministry of Finance to pay the salaries of employees, retirees, and social assistance for the month of April before the Eid."
She added that "many employees, especially those with lower salaries, retirees and social assistance depend on what they receive from the monthly salary for their daily needs."
And Al-Hilali indicated, "The time remaining from next week, with working hours on Friday and Saturday, is sufficient to pay salaries, and any delay in the payment process will postpone the release of April salaries to the next month."
Earlier, an official source in the Iraqi Ministry of Finance told Shafaq News agency, "It is likely that the salaries of retirees and employees will be paid before Eid Al-Fitr, as the Eid holiday coincides with the end of the month."
He added, "The Ministry of Finance will mobilize its efforts to distribute salaries in full before April 20," expecting that "salaries will be distributed to employees first, and then retirees second."
It is expected that Eid Al-Fitr will fall on the 21st or 22nd of April.
