    Al-Sumaria News - Special


    The new local governments that were recently formed are watching, with concern and shock, the significant reduction in investment allocations to the governorates and regional development, in the 2024 budget tables, to begin their new era in their first year in office, with allocations 70% less than what was granted to the governorates this year. In the past, this file turned into the talk of the street, parliament, and local governments in the governorates two days ago.



    Sorry, the video player failed to load.(Error Code: 101102)

    Immediately after the schedules were sent from the government to Parliament, warnings began to appear about the possibility of stopping investment and service projects in the governorates after the strong cuts that hit the governorate allocations in the 2024 budget

    . Basra Governorate was the first governorate to announce its explicit rejection, objection, and warnings against reducing its investment and petrodollar allocations in the new budget. Although Basra is not the governorate with the highest reduction in allocations, the number seemed large because it was the governorate with the highest allocation last year, and its allocations amounted to approximately 3 trillion dinars, which is higher than all other governorates.





    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] are the governorates most and least affected?

    Al-Sumaria News conducted a digital review of governorate allocations between last year and the current budget, to find out the total reduction percentage and the governorates most affected by the reduction and the least reduced.

    First of all, it is clear that the total reduction in the governorates’ investment allocations amounted to 70%. While it was about 10 trillion dinars in last year’s 2023 budget, it reached about 3 trillion during the current year, meaning that all governorates will share this year, with the same money that Basra alone received this year. the past.

    By reviewing the allocations to the governorates individually, it is clear that Basra is among the 4 governorates least affected by the reduction in allocations, as the governorate with the least reduction in allocations was the capital, Baghdad, where its allocations decreased by 35%, followed by Babylon by 57%, and Maysan by 67%, then Basra, whose allocations decreased by 70%. .

    As for the other Iraqi governorates, all of them decreased their allocations by more than 80%, and the most affected governorates were Karbala Governorate, whose allocations decreased by 86%, and Anbar Governorate, whose allocations decreased by 85%.

    On the other hand, the Kurdistan Region’s allocations increased significantly from 2.8 trillion to 4.9 trillion, by 75%, for unknown reasons for which no explanation was provided.


    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is the secret of reducing allocations?

    Everyone is preoccupied with the large numbers of decrease in allocations, and the local governments that want to start their first important year after their formation only a few months ago following the holding of the governorate council elections, are busy expressing their objection to this reduction, but talk about the reasons for this decrease is absent so far.

    However, Al-Sumaria News can reach an approach by returning to the speech of Prime Minister Muhammad Shia al-Sudani after announcing the vote on the budget schedules a few days ago, in which there was talk that could explain the reason for reducing the allocations to the provinces.

    Al-Sudani, in his speech at the press conference, revealed the presence of large amounts of money in the governorates’ funds that had not been spent, noting that the total investment budget for the governorates and the Regional Development Fund amounted to 10.6 trillion, of which only 3.3 trillion were spent last year, and the remainder is more than 7 trillion.

    He stressed that "this 7 trillion is at the disposal of local governments and is available to finance projects, in addition to 11 trillion from the Food Security Law, of which 38% has been disbursed, and the remaining more than 7 trillion is in the governorates' accounts."

    Al-Sudani pointed out that in the capital, Baghdad, we have districts equivalent to two governorates that suffer from a lack of services, considering that increasing financial allocations to the governorates means increasing the budget deficit.

    It is clear from Al-Sudani’s speech that the allocations provided to the governorates this year at about 3 trillion will complement the remaining 7 trillion in the regional development funds remaining from last year that were not spent by the governorates, and are available for withdrawal and spending in addition to the new allocations.

    Also, Al-Sudani’s talk about Baghdad containing districts equivalent to two governorates and without services explains why Baghdad was the lowest governorate in the percentage of reduction in allocations in the 2024 budget, and the reduction percentage amounted to only 35%.
