Deputy Prime Minister Bahaa al-Araji detect the arrival of the special protections of the expenses of the officials' salaries and equipment to one billion dollars.
Araji said, "We have an idea of the project to reduce the number of protections for all officials, and the formation of a special brigade of them will be at the disposal of officials, when you need them."
He said, "The idea is to allocate 80 element for the protection of the three presidents [the President and the Prime Minister and the President of the House of Representatives] and 50 element to protect their deputies and 30 element to protect the minister." It is said that Iraq suffers from a difficult economic situation because of the shortfall in the budget year 2015, which is estimated according to Finance Minister Hoshyar Zebari at about $ 40 billion, to coincide with the fall in world oil prices, which make up 90 percent of Iraq's imports.
