Baghdad – October 23 – The Finance Committee of the Parliament announced that it is in the process of activating the draft law amending the salary scale of employees and parallel salaries in all ministries and agencies.
Committee member Majida al-Tamimi said in a statement that it “submitted a proposal to amend the salary scale of employees in all ministries in 2011 when the Prime Minister Haider Abadi as head of the parliamentary finance committee.”
Tamimi added that “the committee formed a mini committee of its members to complete all the amendments and received a response from the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers to delay the passage of the proposal until the submission of a draft amendment of the central government,” noting that “the Committee bothered the matter and stopped the project at the time, despite the collection of more than 80 signatures by Members of Parliament on the amendment. “
She pointed out that “the committee is re-moving the amendment and activate it in preparation for passing by the House of Representatives,” noting that “the amendment includes raising the minimum salaries in some ministries to be parallel to ministries with high salaries to prevent mobility between ministries.”
Tamimi explained that “the salary after the adjustment will be calculated wages of housing allowances and wages of electricity and water and inflation in the markets and the exchange rate of dinar and purchasing power to ensure a salary is sufficient to ensure all the requirements of middle life.” Finished
