The Iraqi government says Iraq faces an immediate challenge caused by the decline in oil prices and the impact this has had on the economy and fiscal liquidity.

Officials say that the impact of the fall in oil prices is compounded by other weaknesses caused by decades old policies of a command economy, and by the approach to the economy by successive Iraqi governments over the past seventeen years.

These policies, they add,  have led, amongst other things, to an exponential increase in the size of the public sector, low levels of private investment, mismanagement and administrative corruption.

According to official figures, salaries and staff allowances in the public sector constitute approximately 60% of public spending, and this does not include other expenditure on daily activities of ministries, while spending on investment projects represents 2% of the budget.

The figures show that the number of people employed in the public sector in 2005 was around 850,000, but the number of state employees has risen to more than 3 millions now, and this figure does not include contract employees or those on daily rates, costing Iraq US$36 billions annually, a ten-fold increase from US$3.6 billions annually a few years ago.

The new Iraqi Cabinet announced the establishment of the Emergency Cell for Financial Reform to lead the response to the crisis, under the chairmanship of the Prime Minister, and with the membership of the Ministers of Finance, Foreign Affairs, Planning, the Governor of the Central Bank, the Secretary General of the Council of Ministers, and other officials as nominated by the Prime Minister.

The Cell’s mandate is to ensure financial liquidity, agree measures to rationalise public spending, diversify resources, and propose finance mechanisms for reconstruction and investment projects from outside government funding streams.

As well as rationalising public spending, the new Iraqi government says it will embark on an economic reform programme in Iraq that includes:


  • Supporting the expansion of the private sector and encouraging investment

  • Introducing automation and simplifying procedures in the public sector

  • Adopting a single budget account to monitor spending by ministries to reduce waste and corruption

  • Expanding the electronic payment system for salaries, and pressing ahead with the e-government project

  • Rebalancing Iraq’s economic relations with all neighbouring countries



Earlier this month, the Minister of  Finance, Ali Allawi, said that cutting spending was essential, and that this will include reductions to the the benefits and allowances of state employees, including those of senior officials, but he stressed that the basic salaries of employees will not be reduced, and that any cuts will not include employees or pensioners who earn 500,000 dinars or less a month.

Baghdad - people  



On Sunday, Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi chaired the special session of the Council of Ministers, devoted to discussing financial and economic reform.  



The Information Office of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers said in a statement, "People" received, a copy of it, (June 7, 2020), that "the Council of Ministers held an extraordinary session headed by Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, to discuss financial and economic reform."  



The stifling financial distress raises concern in light of the government's lack of wide options to confront it, which led it to open the file of double salaries and financial reforms, which could mean entering into an "early conflict", according to specialists.  

And former officials indicate, according to a press report followed by "NASS" Monday (1 June 2020), that the file is very thorny and "dangerous" and may mean "fueling the street", especially as there are categories that receive three salaries and perhaps more, while specialists estimate the amount of financial spending in The issue of multi-salaries and aliens about 15 to 18 trillion dinars (12.5-15 billion dollars) annually.    



[size=20]Regarding the proposed solutions to the file, Judge Raheem Al-Okaili proposed that the political prisoners ’privileges be completely abolished, without recovering the compensation that was paid to them, indicating that these compensation were supposed to be paid for only ten years, according to the Political Prisoners’ Law in its first legislation in 2006.   
 
[size=20]The following is the text of the report:  

  
The Iraqi government’s leadership is moving within the framework of discussing the issue of financial reforms in conjunction with the economic crisis that surrounds the country, in light of the decrease in resources due to the large drop in oil prices.    
Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi entered into an early conflict with the politically-supported multi-salary group, as his Financial Reform Commission discussed, on Saturday, May 30, financial reforms and a solution to the issue of double salaries and pensions.  
  
Al-Kazemi directed, according to a statement of the committee, "to make the necessary reforms in accordance with the principle of achieving social justice, by addressing double salaries and pensions for the detainees of Rafha and a group of residents outside Iraq who are receiving other salaries."  
  
In conjunction with the government movement, the head of the "Committee of Martyrs, Victims and Political Prisoners" in the Iraqi parliament, Abdul Ilah Al-Naeli, launched a harsh crackdown on the Prime Minister, saying that this measure is "contrary to social justice."  
  
He added in a statement, "The employee's salary is the employee's right because he provides service to the citizens and the state, while the salary of the martyr, wounded or imprisoned is the right of the sacrifice he made and approved by the laws in force and is for a limited period and not absolute."  
  
He pointed out that "the salaries of the repressive apparatuses whose number may reach 551 thousand and their imaginary salaries may reach 3 trillion dinars (2.5 billion dollars) annually, as well as the salaries of the Egyptians and the Palestinians," were not touched, asking, "Are these more important than the families of martyrs, victims and prisoners?" In order for their salaries to continue and be cut off from the deprived and the Mujahideen. "   
 
On the other hand, Haneen Qaddo, a member of the “Al-Fateh” coalition, said, “The Prime Minister has no authority to cancel the double salaries or the salaries of the beneficiaries of the Rafha law, because these salaries were legislated according to a law, and they are not canceled or amended except through a new law that is voted on Parliament. "   
 
  
Rafha Law  
This issue, in particular the so-called "Rafha Law", has always caused great controversy in popular and political circles, as protesters consider the law "an embodiment of the absence of social justice and the fair distribution of wealth." It also allows its beneficiaries to obtain more than one salary at the same time, in addition to their high salaries, compared to their peers who are not beneficiaries of the law.   
 
It seems that Al-Kazemi went early to start a confrontation that could open a political struggle with him.    
It is expected that many groups benefiting from this law will fuel a conflict with the Al-Kazemi government, at a time when observers express their belief that these groups represent a permanent electoral base for some political parties.
    
Meanwhile, the most prominent question remains regarding Al-Kazemi’s ability to win this struggle, which previous prime ministers were unable to address. Observers believe that what limited his predecessors ’ability to talk about these privileges is that deputies in their blocs belong to those groups that provide them with an electoral credit. As for Al-Kazemi, he does not belong to those groups and is not related to a mass of this type, which may allow him to move in This framework, but that does not make it far from political pressure from some blocs.    
  
Parliamentarians with more than one salary  
Meanwhile, member of the Finance Committee Ahmed Hama Rashid said in an interview with "The Independent Arabia", "In 2015 we tried to cancel these concessions, but the protests came from parliamentarians who receive more than a salary," adding that "the attempts continued in 2016 and 2017, but they did not succeed." ".   
 
He added, "There are parties, if they cannot argue over this issue, that go to provoke the street by talking about the martyrs, their rights and their families."   
 
He continued, "This is not the main issue in providing resources, but the government would like to address larger issues." 
   
  
Allocations and benefits in billions  
Economic specialist Majid Al-Suri estimated that "the amount of financial spending in the case of multi-salaries and space is about 15 to 18 trillion dinars (12.5-15 billion dollars) annually. There are those who receive up to four salaries officially."  
  
He added to "The Independent Arabia", "There is a waste of public funds and a lack of transparency in official figures and not following the salary scale, in addition to that the number of employees in the public budget is less than 3 million people, while in practice they are 4.5 million, because contracts, procedure and self-financing are not counted ".  
  
He pointed out that "according to the estimates of the Financial Supervision Bureau in 2012 after interviewing a small part of the official circles, it was discovered that about 24 thousand people receive more than one salary, including those who receive five salaries", noting that "it is not possible to know the number of aliens."  
  
Al-Suri estimated that "about a million people receive more than one salary or aliens in the state administration."   
 
He concluded that "undocumented official accounts show that the total salaries and benefits in the budget amount to 67 trillion dinars (55.8 billion dollars), 65 percent of which are allocations, privileges and benefits up to 45 trillion dinars (37.5 billion dollars)."    
  
250 thousand multi-salary  
In a related context, professor of economics Abdul Rahman Al-Mashhadani revealed that "since 2016, the International Monetary Fund has alerted to the issue of double salary for state employees. He pointed out that there are about 250 thousand people who are paid three salaries."  
  
He added to "The Independent Arabia", "The salaries of these groups came according to parliamentary legislation, and they were calculated doubly, starting from about a thousand dollars as a minimum," noting that "this created a gap in social justice."  
  
He continued, "176 trillion dinars, or about 147 billion dollars, is recycled from the budgets of previous years, including more than 112 trillion dinars (94 billion dollars) as advances to the state departments and ministries, and the remaining 64 trillion dinars (53 billion dollars) as surpluses for years between 2004 - 2018, "noting that" these funds disappeared and were not returned to the state budgets or payment of their receipts. "    
 
 
Allocations rise without assignments  
Al-Mashhadani revealed that "the other problem is related to salary and wage allocations, which rise annually by about 4-8 trillion dinars annually (3.3 - 6.7 billion dollars), while appointments have stopped since 2013, while the Ministry of Finance announced that the amount of bonus bonuses is about one trillion dinars ( 838 million dollars). "   
 
He continued, "The allocations of the social welfare network in the actual budget for 2019 amounted to about $ 10 billion. While the number of beneficiaries amounts to one million and 380 thousand beneficiaries with salaries amounting to about 75 thousand dinars (62.5 dollars) per person."    
  
Enrichment at the expense of public money  
On the other hand, the former head of the Integrity Commission, Judge Rahim al-Aqili, said that "transitional justice, especially with regard to those affected, is supposed to compensate them for harm, and this is not necessarily supposed to be associated with duration, unless the period is an essential element in reparation of harm."  
  
He explained to "Independent Arabia" that "what happened in the case of political prisoners, Rafha and others who were compensated, is an exaggeration of privileges to the extent of overcoming reparation, so that enrichment has become at the expense of public money, while other layers suffer poverty and lack of sources of livelihood", indicating "These damages violate the fair distribution of wealth, which is a constitutional principle."    

He pointed out that "the Law of the Political Prisoners Association in its first legislation in 2006, was supposed to continue that the pensions under it for a period of only ten years, ending in 2016, but it was amended in 2013 to become 25 years and this is very exaggerated."    

He added that "pension salaries are rights for those who pay deductions for the state and a type of insurance, and employing them in another way is considered a legal problem and a violation of the rights of the employee class, especially as the pension fund funds accumulated from deductions paid by these people."    

He revealed that "the salaries of political prisoners and others are paid by the Ministry of Finance from the public treasury, as well as another budget allocated to the Prisoners Corporation through which other benefits are paid," adding that "pension salaries only for those who are fired and political prisoners amount to about 1.2 trillion dinars (billion dollars), without The rest of the franchises. " 
   
He pointed out that "the legal solution is to abolish these privileges completely, because they took from the concessions what the repercussions they had received, compared to the millions of poor people who do not find the livelihood of their day, in addition to the fact that the foundations of compensation are not equal between them and the victims of terrorism and military operations."    [/size][/size]
