Baghdad - INA
The Parliamentary Energy Committee confirmed, today, Thursday, that the government is moving in the right direction in the electricity file, while noting that the Ministry of Electricity has caused significant waste of money.
Member of the Energy Committee Ali Al-Aboudi told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "The government is moving in the right direction in the energy file to solve the electricity problem."
He added that "the comparison between the large amount of money allocated to the Ministry of Electricity and what is being produced will come to a clear indication of the existence of a very large waste of money and the lack of investment in human resources that were led by 32 thousand and today the ministry is led by 220 thousand despite the existence of the financial deficit."
He explained that "the government can run a parallel line for the maintenance process and provide needs for some electrical stations that need financial allocations, such as the immediate treatment of electricity."
The investigation committee of the Ministry of Electricity, earlier, revealed that there is a default by other ministries regarding the shortage of energy.
The Ministry of Electricity confirmed earlier that all the transport lines and networks for connecting with the Gulf countries have been completed, indicating that Iraq has completed all transport lines, and the transportation networks for the Gulf link have also been completed. The stations were completed and all that remains is for the linkages to the Gulf states. "
