Prepared by the Legal Committee of Parliament MP for the Virtue Party Hassan al-Shammari, a study of the proposed draft of the draft federal budget for fiscal year law in 2015 with the help and advice of specialists explained where the budget is not suitable for display on a vote in the House of Representatives session for approval and the need to return to the cabinet.
Al-Shammari said in his study of the budget that got "Qurtas News," a copy of which said, "This study on the budget submitted to the Finance Committee for consideration and taken into consideration and taking into account their content when you make adjustments As with the budget stay on the current content without any changes, saying Vary by discretionary be passed in the House of Representatives is not in the interest of the federal government and the provinces and Sakplha much of the burden in the short and long term and that is my responsibility legitimacy and national imperative in the light of this that does not vote in favor of the passed in the House of Representatives. "
In the following Terms and study its details:
First - "has been building the budget based on the foundations guess is accurate and realistic represented calculates $ 60 as the price per barrel of oil and presumably in light of volatility happening in global oil prices rely on the safe measure in the process of guessing which provides the necessary expenses in the budget in compensation staff and goods services and other operating expenses that can not be dispensed with or postponed Maintaining the dollars 60th as the price for a barrel of oil will increase the budget deficit level as - and as some have supposed - that the price of a barrel by the eighth month, will rise to $ 70, but even with this hypothesis, the US $ 10 for the difference the remaining five months of the year do not cover the resulting shortfall for the difference between the price of the guesswork and the price of the actual sales and $ 20 for the first seven months of the fiscal year, that if Iraq was able to sell oil dollars to 40 a barrel during these months, and arithmetic speculative will be additional deficit 11 billion and $ 880 million, thus the total deficit would be up to 39 trillion dinars, or that the deficit ratio will reach approximately 49% of the total budget. "
Second - "The budget did not adopt the parity between the provinces and the Kurdistan region is not an element in the order of the financial obligations, nor in the distribution of expenditure and the budget is almost arranged for the benefit of the region be at the expense of the rest of the provinces, and the evidence for that is as follows:
1 - "the provinces committed to deliver its product full of crude oil, while the region is not only committed to deliver 250 000 barrels of the total 420 000 barrels daily as a producer of crude oil at a time when the region gets a total share of more than 18 trillion dinars of the total remaining after excluding Sovereign expenditure of (100,530,235,000,000) dinars, or nearly 18% of the total budget, with the exception of the sovereign in time, which is the region population ratio does not exceed (12.61) of the total population of Iraq in accordance with the annex to the table with the budget and this is an injustice against the rest of the provinces, especially productive including oil, which bear the damage resulting from the extractive operations of the oil. "
2 - "The reduction in expenses, salaries and taxation was not under a clear standard applies to everyone, but the case is selective, leading to be the reduction in the federal ministries and provinces is very large when compared to the rates in the Kurdistan Region."
Third - "The budget has dropped much of the burden on the citizens represented by reducing staff, including salaries and taxation is fair to them and it was possible to dispense with this unjust expansion in the issuance of securities and categories and the benefits of the procedures and deadlines variety of different pay to cover this side of the estimated requirement of B2 trillion and 800 million dinars. "
Fourth - "was supposed to in the investment budget account to be limited to the debt owed to install in favor of contractors and suppliers to the ministries and departments not related to the Ministry and to delete all the assumed allocations for projects that were not prescribed for them or for the remaining ones and postpone the coming year could be in if they were to adopt this method to provide very large sums of money that would reduce the budget deficit level, I suggest here put an item in the budget explicitly prohibits ministries and departments not associated with the Ministry of giving financial payments in advance to contractors and suppliers under the operational advances address for their business and is restricted to pay what it's worth from the amounts on the basis of Aldhirat completed projects, this would be closing an important section of the financial and administrative corruption. "
Fifth - the budget did not tend to draw on the national cash reserve located at the Iraqi Central Bank, which may exceed 80 billion dollars a mechanism, some may object to it under the pretext of the impact on the dinar exchange rate against the dollar, but this objection is incorrect because the International Monetary Fund and select the amount of 64 billion dollar minimum cash reserves Iraqi required to maintain the dinar's exchange rate against the dollar any possible withdrawal of nearly 16 billion dollars in favor of the budget, which reduces the deficit does not require the need to put pressure on the citizens. "
VI - "the budget did not include provisions that oblige ministries and departments not associated with the Ministry to be the new grades and vacant as a result of the angel movement dedicated exclusively to contractors and daily wage earners ongoing work in previous years and by foot, that contribute to the provision of large sums of money to contribute in reducing the deficit and serve a wide range of citizens.
