    [size=52]Report of the Finance Committee: Employee salaries amounted to 59 trillion dinars, and education employees increased by 525% over the 2021 budget[/size]

    [size=45]– In 2023, the Council of Ministers borrows 650 billion dinars, and the crowd numbers reached 238,000 affiliates.[/size]
    [size=45]30 trillion dinars for the salaries of the security ministries, and a trillion dinars for the Shiite endowment![/size]
    [size=45]The deficit increased by 125% over the last budget and government services costing 5.6 trillion dinars[/size]
    [size=45]Baghdad / Tamim Al-Hassan[/size]
    [size=45]The salaries of employees in the 2023 budget increased by about 14 trillion dinars from the last budget two years ago, while the number of employees in the Ministry of Education alone has swelled to 525%.[/size]
    [size=45]The deputies criticized the deficit in the budget sent by the government last month to parliament, which was estimated to be more than nine times the budget of a neighboring country like Jordan.[/size]
    [size=45]The number of employees of 9 institutions, including the Popular Mobilization Forces, increased by 95%, and the Sunni Endowment by 70% over the 2021 budget.[/size]
    [size=45]The deficit in the new budget jumped, up to 125% from the previous budget, while Iraq's indebtedness amounted to more than 90 trillion dinars.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, current expenditures (including salaries) rise to 49% from the previous budget, and non-investment expenditures accounted for 75% of the total budget estimated at 200 trillion dinars.[/size]
    [size=45]And the House of Representatives resumed after midday yesterday, the session that kept it open from Sunday evening, which witnessed the second reading of the draft budget.[/size]
    [size=45]A statement from Parliament said, "The House of Representatives keeps its session open, to resume today, Monday (yesterday), at one o'clock in the afternoon until six o'clock in the evening, and then resume after that in the evening."[/size]
    [size=45]This is one of the few times that parliament continues to hold open sessions, especially since the pace of the parliament's work had slowed down before Muhammad al-Halbousi interrupted his leave and returned to presiding over the sessions.[/size]
    [size=45]It is not yet known why the Speaker of Parliament backed down from completing his vacation, which he took two days before its end.[/size]
    [size=45]It was believed, at least among the coordinating framework circles, that the Speaker of Parliament granted himself permission to pressure the government to pass his demands or block the budget, while there does not seem to be any progress in what is known as the “Sunni Demands Paper” and the most prominent demand in it is the approval of the general amnesty law.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Halbousi began his work after his return from a visit to Saudi Arabia, during which he met the Crown Prince of the Kingdom, Muhammad bin Salman, who then met (the Crown Prince) with the leader of the Wisdom Movement, Ammar al-Hakim.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Hakim's name had been mentioned in recent days as a mediator between Al-Halbousi and Prime Minister Muhammad Al-Sudani to end the differences between the two parties.[/size]
    [size=45]It was leaked that the differences were due to the Sudanese refusal to extend the parliament's powers to the government, and the failure to implement the political agreement paper.[/size]
    [size=45]Although Al-Halbousi denied the existence of these differences, the latter had boycotted a meeting held last Saturday between the Presidency of Parliament and Al-Sudani on the budget.[/size]
    [size=45]Sources expected that political differences over the budget would start after the second reading, as there are fears that the prime minister will use the huge revenues to finance the upcoming election campaign.[/size]
    [size=45]According to the report of the Parliament’s Finance Committee, which includes representatives of all political forces, it criticized the fact that operating spending in the 2023 budget reached 75%, compared to 25% for the investment side.[/size]
    [size=45]The report also described the budget preparation method as "traditional" that is not consistent with the volume of revenues and expenditures, and the low funds allocated for projects.[/size]
    [size=45]The Finance Committee called for moving to a budget that adopts the “programs and performance” method, and finding new sources of income in addition to oil, in anticipation of fluctuations in oil prices.[/size]
    [size=45]The 21-page report said that "the budget is not only an arithmetic balance," but "an arithmetic balance between revenues and expenditures on the one hand, and the economic balance on the other."[/size]
    [size=45]The report identified several challenges that he said were facing the budget, most notably the huge allocations for financing state institutions, the huge deficit, the increase in unemployment rates, and supporting the central system at the expense of the decentralized one.[/size]
    [size=45]The report revealed an increase in revenues in the new budget by 33% over the estimated revenues in 2021, amounting to about (134.6) trillion dinars.[/size]
    [size=45]He said that the increase is due to the increase in the quantities of oil exported to (250) thousand barrels per day, in addition to relying on the price per barrel of ($70) compared to ($45) for the year 2021.[/size]
    [size=45]Oil revenues accounted for 87% of total revenues, with more than 117 trillion dinars, compared to 80% in the previous budget, whose total revenues (oil and non-oil) were 101 trillion dinars.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, the total expenditures in 2023 amounted to (199) trillion dinars, an increase of 53% over the expenditures of 2021, which were about 130 trillion dinars.[/size]
    [size=45]The report indicated that the total allocations in the new budget increased by (49) trillion dinars over the total financial allocations for the year 2021.[/size]
    [size=45]And the increase in total capital allocations by an amount of approximately (20) trillion dinars for the year 2021.[/size]
    [size=45]As for the deficit, it amounted to about (64.5) trillion dinars, an increase of (25.5) trillion, or (125%) over the 2021 budget.[/size]
    [size=45]The planned deficit percentage constitutes approximately (48%) of total revenues, (55%) of oil revenues, and (373%) of non-oil revenues estimated in 2023.[/size]
    [size=45]Basem Khashan, an independent MP, says: “The House of Representatives is intended to vote on a total deficit that is more than nine times Jordan’s budget for the year 2023, which amounted to 16 billion dollars.”[/size]
    [size=45]And he adds in a post on Facebook: "And if the comparison with Jordan is not justified because its population does not exceed 12 million people, we compare it with the budget of Algeria, which has a population of more than 44 million people, which amounted to only 91 billion dollars."[/size]
    [size=45]And the deputy continued: “I am not absolutely against borrowing, but we borrow to eat only, and not to produce or change anything from what we were and are still in.”[/size]
    [size=45]The report of the Finance Committee had stated that the government's measures to cover the deficit through loans from government banks amounting to approximately (3.2) trillion dinars, and 10 trillion dinars from international banks.[/size]
    [size=45]And the report indicated that the largest amount of the loan will go to the Ministry of Planning by 33%, at an amount of more than 3 trillion dinars.[/size]
    [size=45]Next comes the Ministry of Electricity and Oil with 19% for each ministry of the total loans, then reconstruction with 9%, while the Council of Ministers allocated 650 billion dinars from the amount of loans.[/size]
    [size=45]As for current expenditures, the Finance Committee revealed that it increased by 49% from 2021, and amounted to 150 trillion dinars.[/size]
    [size=45]The committee's report indicated that employee salaries increased by 14 trillion dinars, from 45 trillion dinars in 2021 to 59 trillion, with a growth rate of 31%.[/size]
    [size=45]As for service requirements (such as rent allowance, transportation services, phone bills, etc.), they increased by 367% compared to the previous budget, and rose from 1.2 trillion dinars to 5.6 trillion dinars, a difference of 4.4 trillion dinars from the last budget.[/size]
    [size=45]This corresponds to an increase of 43% in social welfare salaries, which increased from 19.6 trillion to 28 trillion dinars for the 2021 budget.[/size]
    [size=45]The security ministries controlled the largest percentage of salaries by more than 16%, and the salaries of the Interior and Defense ministries amounted to about 30 trillion dinars, an increase of 50% over the salaries of 2021.[/size]
    [size=45]The Ministry of the Interior occupied the position of the highest ministry in terms of salaries, which amounted to 12.6 trillion dinars, followed by the Ministry of Education, where salaries amounted to 10.8 trillion dinars, a difference of more than 9 trillion dinars from 2021, with a growth rate of 535% compared to the last budget.[/size]
    [size=45]3.5 trillion dinars were allocated for the salaries of the popular crowd, compared to 2.9 in the previous budget, an increase of 21%.[/size]
    [size=45]As for the amounts of services, the Ministry of Oil took the lion's share, as it got 2.9 trillion dinars, a difference of 2.7 trillion from 2021, with a growth rate estimated at 1350%.[/size]
    [size=45]In addition, the report of the Finance Committee revealed that the Shiite Endowment Office had given an amount of one trillion dinars within the item “grants and subsidies.”[/size]
    [size=45]Regarding the number of employees, the report said that the employees of the Ministry of Education increased by more than 800 thousand employees, an increase rate estimated at 525%, as the number increased from more than 154 thousand in 2021 to about one million employees.[/size]
    [size=45]Next comes the Ministry of Health, where the number of employees increased between 2021 and 2023 by about 400 thousand employees, and the increase was estimated at 320%.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, it was estimated that the numbers of the Popular Mobilization Forces increased by 95% from 2021, with a difference of more than 116 thousand members, as their number in the new budget reached more than 238 thousand members, compared to 122,000 in the previous budget.[/size]
