The Ministry of Finance and Economy in the Kurdistan Regional Government announced on Sunday on the distribution of salaries of employees of the Ministry of Education for the month of November 2017, both inside and outside cities, indicating that after the holiday of Noroz will resume the salaries of other ministries.
The Council of Ministers of the Territory said in a statement to the twilight news, that with regard to the amount of money that the Central Bank of Iraq under his book No. (1638) and dated (March 19, 2018) launch for employees of the Kurdistan Region, and then was confirmed by the President of the Council of Ministers of Iraq Federal and Speaker In his name, we found it necessary to state the following points:
1. The Federal Government, under the above-mentioned book, stated explicitly that the sum of (317) billion and (540) million and (465) thousand dinars as financial dues for all employees of the Kurdistan Region, including salaries of the Peshmerga forces, did not indicate that the amount Is intended only to pay the salaries of the Ministries of Education and Health, and has committed the Government of the Territory to spend this amount as follows:
A – The amount of (281) billion and (724) million and (634) thousand dinars for all employees and employees of the Kurdistan Region, except the Peshmerga forces.
B – The amount of (35) billion and (815) million and (831) thousand dinars for the salaries of the Peshmerga forces.
2 – According to the federal budget of Iraq, the legal allocations for social welfare in the Kurdistan Region, which consists of salaries of retirees, the amount of one trillion and (535) billion, and (795) million dinars, or about (128) billion dinars per month, but The book of the Central Bank of Iraq referred to in the above does not refer to these assignments and does not order release.
3. The Presidency of the Council of Ministers affirms that the allocations of salaries of employees, retirees and beneficiaries of social welfare in the federal budget law of Iraq for the year 2018 are less than the financial dues of employees of the Kurdistan Region, but they are not enough to spend even with the system of savings. Therefore, the Ministry of Finance and Economy in the Kurdistan Region will not be able to pay the salaries of all employees of the Kurdistan Region of the allocations stipulated in the Iraqi federal budget for the year 2018, but must review these assignments.
4 – Thus find the Ministry of Finance and Economy itself obliged to include the amount mentioned in the book of the Central Bank of Iraq referred to above to the proceeds of oil in the Kurdistan Region, and pay the salaries of the month of November 2017 for the region’s employees according to the savings system, and then then in light of these developments to reconsider In salaries, taking into account the revenues available to the Ministry of Finance and Economy.
