Today, Saturday, the representative of Basra Governorate, Rafiq Al-Salihi,
called on the caretaker government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazemi to take into account the economic capital of Iraq, preserve its funds and not confiscate them. Al-Salihi said in a statement to the "Information" agency, that
"the confiscation of Basra's money from the petrodollars and border crossings is a robbery of the rights of its people and a violation of their economic capabilities in light of the governorate's need for water, electricity and infrastructure projects." He added,
"The deputies of Basra Governorate will take all legal and legislative measures to stop the injustice and prejudice that befall the province as a result of government decisions aimed at confiscating the province's money and depriving its citizens." Al-Salihi indicated,
"The current outgoing government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazemi deals with duplicity with the southern provinces compared to the Kurdistan region."
And earlier, the local government in Basra announced its categorical rejection of the cabinet’s decision to transfer its own financial allocations for the governorate’s projects plan to the 25th Gulf Championship.
