Today, Tuesday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee revealed a government move to reduce the deficit rate in the financial budget by 18 trillion dinars.
Committee member Mueen Al-Kadhimi said in a televised statement, followed by (Baghdad Today), "There is a tendency by the government to reduce the budget deficit rate by 18 trillion dinars," denying what is reported about reducing the deficit rate from 60 trillion to 25 trillion dinars.
He added, "There is no such direction by the government," noting that "because state employees currently number four million and one hundred thousand employees, they alone need this amount, which is 60 trillion dinars, spent as salaries for them."
Al-Kazemi continued by saying, "The financial management law allowed the government to present the budget for three years," pointing out that "the first year of the budget is considered the first and obligatory year to be followed by the two years, successively."
It is noteworthy that the Parliamentary Finance Committee continues its meetings with ministries and government institutions regarding the financial budget for the year 2023, whose deficit amounts to 63 trillion and 275 billion dinars.
