Parliamentary Finance Committee confirmed, on Sunday, that there will be no delay in distributing salaries to state employees after today.
A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, MP Ahmad Mazhar Al-Jubouri, said that “multiple reasons contributed collectively to the delay in paying the salaries of Iraqi state employees and retirees during the past days, despite the approval of the internal and external borrowing law that provided flexibility for the government to pay salaries.”
Al-Jubouri added, “The delay in paying the salaries of June will be the last, and for the rest of the months, salaries will be paid and disbursed within normal times without any delay. We are assured by the public opinion that the state is obligated to pay salaries to all employees within the approved timelines.”
The government was late in tightening and paying the salaries for the month of June, which raised public concern, despite the approval of the internal and external borrowing law.
