    Baghdad/Al-Masala Al-Hadath: The past few days witnessed widespread controversy in Iraq about reducing the budgets of the central and southern governorates for the current year 2024.
    Iraq is suffering from a financial crisis that has been exacerbated by huge spending on the operating budget.
    The reduction decision raised widespread concerns in the central and southern governorates, which rely heavily on the federal budget to finance their service and infrastructure projects. Residents of these governorates fear that the reduction will lead to a decline in basic services and aggravation of unemployment.
    Protests are expected to be organized in the central and southern governorates to express rejection of the reduction decision.
    The Islamic Dawa Party announced its refusal to affect the financial entitlements of the central and southern governorates in the 2024 budget.
    The party said in a statement: “Reducing the governorates’ budget contributes to a decline in services, especially since local governments are at the beginning of their work in their current cycle, and these governorates are suffering from many crises and need more attention and exceptional allocations.”
    Representative Hassan Salem said, “Reducing the budgets of the central and southern governorates while corresponding with an increase in the Kurdistan region’s budget is in violation of the constitution, an understatement, and a great injustice against these governorates, which give a lot of money to the state and only reap “cancer diseases.” Justice requires not remaining silent.”
    Representative Mustafa Sanad announced that the government reduced the governorates’ budgets to only 2.5 trillion dinars.
    Sanad said in a statement, “The government reduced the governorates’ budgets to 2.5 trillion dinars for all governorates, and raised the budget of the Ministry of Housing to 3.7 trillion dinars.”
    He added, “The largest share of the reduction is for Basra, as its budget was reduced from 2.9 trillion to 850 billion dinars only, noting that the contractors’ debts owed to Basra Governorate amount to 800 billion dinars to date.”
    Sanad continued, “In light of his visit to her, the Prime Minister reduced the provincial development budget for Najaf Governorate from 464 billion to 196 billion in the 2024 budget tables.”
    He explained, “As for Maysan Governorate (the birthplace of our prime minister), the investment budget was reduced from 540 billion dinars to 180 billion dinars.”
    While the Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed that the Kurdistan Region’s share of the federal budget for the year 2024 has not changed from what was approved in last year’s budget.
    The head of the Kurdistan Islamic Union, Sherko Jawdat, described the amendments made by the government to the budget as good and fairly fair for all Iraqi provinces, including Kurdistan.
    Jawdat said that the budget was fair to the Kurdistan region, but before these amendments were made, it was a deficient budget that did not meet the requirements of the region or the other provinces.
    However, the Ministry of Planning clarified that the financial amounts available to the governorates (except the Kurdistan Region) during 2024 amounted to more than 41 trillion dinars, and the Ministry indicated in numbers that the statements and data issued in the past few days regarding the comparison between the allocations of the 15 governorates and the allocations of the Kurdistan Region are “incorrect.” It does not match reality.
