The London-based The New arab quoted the official saying that the 2018 budget does not include allocations for new appointments in state bodies, including the ministries of defense and interior.
“The budget does not also involve any bonuses or salary raises for public servants”, the official explained, noting that “the step comes in response to recommendations and provisions set by the IMF, from which Iraq is seeking to borrow to bridge the budget deficit”.
He said the international organization had pointed to an “excess of one million jobs, out of four millions”, adding that “those work for no more than 30 minutes a day and their presence is insignificant at all”.
