Shafaq News / The Parliamentary Economic and Investment Committee demanded, today, Sunday, to lean state ministries, and while it warned that Iraq is passing through the “eye of the hurricane”, it acknowledged that there are no salaries for the current month of October.

Committee member Nada Shaker Jawdat told Shafaq News, “Iraq is going through a very severe economic crisis as a result of low oil prices, and therefore we are currently in the eye of the hurricane,” indicating that “there are no salaries for the month of October for not legislating the borrowing law that is still in Parliament. It has not been voted on. ”

Jawdat stressed, “The state’s ministries must be limber, as there are a large number of ministries, most of them are without interest and are spent on them and they are unable to finance themselves,” noting that “these ministries come in special degrees with their protections and privileges, and we are at a time of limitation. There should be 50,000 advisors, and they cannot walk the country. ”

Jawdat indicated that “the House of Representatives is working on providing a quick paper to save the country from some of the problems it suffers from in order to maximize state revenues,” noting “the presence of some sectors that can be used to maximize state revenues, including the telecommunications sector, industry, agriculture and other other sectors.” .

It is noteworthy that Iraq is going through a stifling financial crisis as a result of low global oil prices, on which the Iraqi budget relies heavily, which prompted the Ministry of Finance to borrow in order to distribute the salaries of employees.
