Today, Thursday, a member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Nermin Maarouf, explained the reasons for reducing the share of the Kurdistan region from the allocations for the development of regions in the federal budget .
A member of the House of Representatives for the Sulaymaniyah Governorate, Nermin Maarouf, said during a press conference followed by (Baghdad Today), that "although the share of the region in the federal budget amounts to 12.67%, the share of the provinces of the region in the development of the regions is 11%," pointing out that " Because of that, the determinants that were set to determine the proportion of each governorate in terms of the development of the regions, represented by the number of residents and the percentage of poverty .
And she indicated that "according to the statistics of the Federal Ministry of Planning, the provinces of the region are the least poor at the level of Iraq, especially the province of Sulaymaniyah, so the proportion of the region has been reduced ."
Regarding the region's share of the budget, Maarouf confirmed that "the region's percentage of 12.67% is not counted from the total budget of 199 trillion dinars, but is calculated from the budget after deducting ruling and sovereign expenditures until it reaches about 117 trillion dinars," stressing that "this means that the region's share amounts to 14 trillion and 700 billion dinars,” in addition to that “the region’s share of the ruling budget amounts to nearly one trillion and 300 billion dinars, which reaches the region in kind, not materially.”
