Baghdad - INA
The parliamentary change bloc identified a major reason for the disagreement between the federal and Kurdistan regional governments, while indicating that the problem in the region is not salaries.
The representative of the bloc, Ghaleb Muhammad, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "the problem in the region is not only salaries, but there are several problems represented in the economy, services, security and fears of rigging elections and other things," noting that "the security forces deal badly with citizens because they are in the hands Ruling parties and families in the region.”
He pointed out that "salaries are among the main problems as they affect the lives of citizens and are related to the movement of markets in the region, indicating that if the problem of salaries is resolved, 50% to 60% of the region's problems may be resolved."
He stressed that "Baghdad and Erbil have not yet reached any agreement, explaining that the reason for this is the federal government's demand for the region to deliver oil and 50% of the outlets imports, while the regional government rejects that and wants to hand over oil resources only."
He explained that "Baghdad knows very well that oil imports will be very few and believes that the delivery of oil is better in order to secure the region's share in the federal budget."
