Parliamentary Finance: Employee salaries amounted to 8 and a half trillion

Moeen Al-Kazemi, a member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, disclosed on Sunday that the monthly salaries of employees, retirees, and caretakers amounted to approximately 8 and a half trillion dollars. He also emphasized that the operational aspect amounted to approximately 170 trillion dollars.

Al-Kadhimi stated, “The House of Representatives is awaiting the Council of Ministers’ vote on the budget schedules and sending them to the House of Representatives for the purpose of voting on them, indicating that the Parliamentary Finance Committee is preparing to reduce operational spending while supporting the investment side.” Al-Kadhimi was speaking about the House of Representatives.

“The operational aspect amounted to approximately 170 trillion, and this is a very large number, taking into account the increase in the number of employees as well as the increase in the salary ceiling to 8 and a half trillion per month,” he explained.

He emphasized, “During the next stage, the House of Representatives will ask the government to increase non-oil revenues, as it supports the state’s public finances and reflects income diversification.”
