Al-Kadhimi issues urgent directive on food security law


Recommended Posts

 

Baghdad - people   

After a long debate between supporters and opponents, the House of Representatives voted on the proposed law on emergency support for food security and development, in which 25 trillion dinars will be allocated to secure financial allocations for several levels.  

 

 

  

The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, suggested the formation of a parliamentary monitoring committee to prevent tampering with the implementation of the Food Security Law.  

  

Al-Sadr said in a statement, a copy of which was received by "Nass", (June 8, 2022), that "Parliament's approval of the Food Security Law is another victory for Fustat Al-Islah. It has proven to everyone the unprecedented strength of the Iraqi parliament in the past years."    

  

However, he added, "But the concern is all about the corrupt domination of this law and its application, so it should not be overlooked that the presence of the Sadrist bloc currently does not go beyond Parliament and does not exist in the current cabinet formation."    

  

He added, "From here, I propose to form a parliamentary oversight committee and one of the specialized and relevant committees to prevent fraud and corruption in the implementation of the provisions of the Food Security Law, or else the people's summit will be lost again. I will not be lenient in exposing anyone who begs himself to manipulate the people's power and summit."

Shafaq News/ The State of Law coalition bloc led by Nuri al-Maliki considered, on Thursday, the emergency food security support law illegal and cannot be applied despite the vote of the Iraqi Parliament unless the next federal government is formed.

The coalition said in a statement today, "The Law of Emergency support for Food Security, despite its inclusion by our deputies of useful paragraphs for the popular classes and the various social strata of those whose contracts have been voided, those with higher degrees, farmers and others, but it collides with the decision of the Federal Court as being unconstitutional and a decision was issued against him that has become obligatory." .

He also stated that "our position was that the government would resort to other alternatives that preserve the constitutional and legal contexts, but the insistence of the Presidency of the Parliament to proceed with it and its failure to adhere to the decision of the Federal Court makes it a regressive step and a violation of the principle of separation of powers and respect for the judicial institution."

The parliamentary bloc added that "according to the decision of the Federal Court, the law is no more than a dead letter but to be implemented when the new government is formed."

She also indicated that "the situation was limited between allowing others to proceed with it in its first form, which is marred by suspicions of corruption and waste of public money, and allocating funds from the financial in an explicit violation because the current government is a daily caretaker government, and between making amendments that fulfill the demands of the Iraqi people and its various segments and meet the need." To the requirements of food, electricity and real services provided that the judicial authority is respected and that this law does not conflict with the decision of the Federal Court.

The statement continued, "The realization of the demands of the segments could have been achieved by relying on the financial management and exchange law according to the 1/12 system, and that it is not permissible to insist on violating the Federal Court, because this challenges the judiciary and thus challenges the entire political process."

Alsumaria News - Report

After the parliament succeeded in overcoming the smaller challenge and voting on the proposed law on emergency support for food security and development, attention is focused on the parliament's continuation in performing its role, but this time by moving from the legislative role to the oversight role by monitoring the stages of implementing the law and preventing its exploitation.

While a parliamentarian confirmed that the House of Representatives completed what he described as the "small challenge" and faces the "biggest challenge" in monitoring the application of the law and not being exploited by the corrupt, another pointed out that the law is important in most of its aspects, despite it containing some articles far from food and economic security.
 

The representative of the Sadrist bloc, Ghayeb Al-Amiri, confirmed that Parliament, after succeeding in overcoming the smallest challenge, today has a more important path ahead in facing what he described as the "biggest challenge."

Al-Amiri said in an interview with Alsumaria News, "The legislation of the law is an important and necessary step in this exceptional time experienced by the region and the world in general as a result of the global economic crisis due to the Russian-Ukrainian war, as well as the crisis in Iraq due to the failure to resolve the issue of forming a new government with full powers and the lack of a budget. ".
 

And he indicated, "The law does not contradict the constitution or its articles, and it guarantees important allocations to the food security sectors by providing allocations for the ration card, electricity fuel, outstanding debts and farmers' entitlements, in addition to the allocations of lecturers, development of the regions and some special funds for some provinces, including Dhi Qar."

Al-Amiri added, "The law was born in very difficult circumstances, and therefore there will be strict control over its implementation by Parliament, and this is what the leader of the Sadrist movement Muqtada al-Sadr suggested in a tweet to him about the necessity of forming a parliamentary committee to monitor the implementation of the law from the competent committees and not to lose the people's summit again." ".

He stressed that "the Sadrist bloc will have intensive follow-up after the law is activated, and today we have passed the smallest challenge in legislating the law, so we have the biggest challenge in monitoring its implementation, and as we succeeded in the first challenge, God willing, we will succeed in the other challenge."

He continued, "We will work to form specialized committees, follow up the implementation of the law, achieve its goals for which it was initiated, and provide service to the Iraqi people."

For his part, the independent representative, Yasser Al-Husseini, indicated that Parliament, after completing the legislation of the emergency food security support law, will face a greater challenge in monitoring the implementation of the law.

Al-Husseini said in an interview with Alsumaria News, "Most of the paragraphs of the law of emergency support for food security are responsive to the aspirations and the need of Iraq and its people, but we must beware of illegal aspects in the origin of the law and the decision of the Federal Court."

He continued: "Regardless of the law's consistency with Federal Court Decision No. 121, some paragraphs are inconsistent with the original decision and the fact that we in the Economics Committee have a vision about what economic security is, the law in its final version includes secondary projects that are far from economic security."

Al-Husseini added, "The law in some aspects departed from the goal of economic security, and this matter makes us feel afraid of colliding with the decision of the Federal Court and may challenge it and waste all efforts made in providing basic aspects, not to mention the fear of wasting public money as the previous budget law."

And he continued: "After we finished the first challenge and legislated the law, today we will enter into another challenge, which is the supervisory aspect of implementing the law, which is more difficult than the previous step in legislating the law, as we will clash with the mafias of corruption."

Adel Abdul-Mahdi comments on seven points on the passage of the “Emergency Support for Food Security” law
 

Baghdad - people  

The former Iraqi Prime Minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, commented, on Thursday, with seven points on the parliament's approval of the "Emergency support for Food Security" law.  

  

  

Abdul-Mahdi wrote on his Facebook page, and Nass followed him (June 9, 2022), saying that "the backwardness in basic structures puts us between two options, the best of which is bitter."  

Abdul-Mahdi said, "Let us leave the legal debate on the jurists and constitutionalists. Going to "federalism" means basic and fundamental societal, conceptual and institutional differences. When we do not perform our duties to build our system on clear and effective foundations that pay harm in times of adversity and achieve benefits in prosperity, the system will conspire against itself, and push us to choose between the most harmful and the most harmful.  

1- We suffer from the deviation of the prevailing economic philosophy in the state, the political class and public opinion. It is about looking at the national economy through the budget, and not the other way around. The increase in oil imports was considered a surplus, as it exceeded the budget estimates. While in fact it is a real surplus profit for the economy, just as the increase in the prices of our imports is an increase in real losses for the economy.  

When the budget - not the economy - becomes the beginning and the end, and when its approval is delayed for any reason, it will delay and disrupt everything with it. The machine stops spinning. Rather, it rotates backwards. The experience of the previous year (1/12) is reproduced despite the change of circumstances and data. Everything is related to oil. We lose both times. If its prices collapsed, we will be plunged into deficit, indebtedness and crises. If it rises, it will be spent on consumptions and absurdities. There is no doubt that the pressures of reality, especially in the field of employment and dues, will rightly press for urgent solutions. It may not be as integrated and coherent as it should be. This will deepen the real and disguised unemployment crisis, increase the slackness of the state and society, and deepen the rentier economy, which destroys everything else.  

2- Several officials and legislators, who are a minority, worked to develop serious solutions to this situation. But the resistance - conscious and unconscious - to the rentier minds and interests in the state, political forces and society remained the strongest, and represented the overwhelming majority. As many attempts have been made to apply the oil-for-reconstruction argument, or to harness oil money to stimulate the economy outside the budget. However, as soon as these efforts achieve a correct step, they are obstructed, obstructed, or distorted. These are (3) examples of large files that have been completed, or almost done. There are others, which could have been used in our present circumstance.  

3- The “National Oil Company” with its law in force (facts -4486- 9/4/2018), in which brother Dr. Ibrahim Bahr al-Ulum played a prominent role - in consultation with experts - to reformulate some of its articles and pass it in the House of Representatives. For example, Article (12) allocates no more than (90%) of the company's profits to the state treasury, that is, oil imports minus costs and some deductions. And no less than (10%, subject to increase) for the “citizen’s fund” as shares for citizens, the “generations fund” for the benefit of the future, and the “reconstruction fund” for strategic projects. And Article (18) in particular (fifth and sixth) for the development of the agricultural, industrial and service sectors, and many other things.  

4- With a joint effort from the Presidency of the Republic and the ministers, the Council of Ministers voted on 18/9/2019 on the draft “Council for Reconstruction” bill, and it was sent to the House of Representatives for approval. Provides for allocating (5%) of oil resources to strategic projects and infrastructure. To replace the "Council of Reconstruction" law in the fifties of the last century, which contributed to many projects whose benefits we are still enjoying today.  

5- The Iraqi-Chinese agreement. (100) thousand barrels / oil / day (subject to increase). It has currently collected about (1-2) billion dollars. Prepared - with the addition of funds allowed by the mechanisms of the agreement - to invest in infrastructure, anchor and investment projects in various sectors. It absorbs more labor, develops the gross national product and reduces dependence on oil.  

6- (3 and 5) above are legislators and are effective, and (4) requires action from the legislative authority after the completion of the first reading, and after the current government has already made amendments to the draft of the previous government.  

7- These laws alone allow - for the purposes of budgeting - to dispose of resources close to - and may exceed - what was allocated for "food security". Not to mention that this will take place in a fundamental, legal, regulatory and sustainable manner. It gives us flexibility to solve some urgent problems of benefits, contracts and food security, and the ability to develop the non-oil sectors as well. We better deal with issues of employment and development. We face developments, whether when oil prices drop or rise."  

He concluded by saying, "Therefore, the necessity of unifying our word, our philosophy and our conceptual references, and the priority of economic and societal visions over financial and routine visions, and over visions of the rentier state and economy."

Member of the Law: Wide doors are against the law in food security and will not be a substitute for the budget
  
{Politics: Al-Furat News} A member of the State of Law coalition, Alaa Al-Hadadi, confirmed the existence of wide doors in violation of the law in the emergency support for food security voted on by the House of Representatives yesterday, Wednesday.
 

Al-Hadadi told Al-Furat News that: "The only surprise in the food security law was at the beginning of the project's proposal, where it was presented to the political forces for 9.8 trillion dinars, but then it was put forward 30 trillion dinars."
He added, "The law included wide doors that violated the law and were not well woven legally to ensure the safety of the exchange. It also took a political dimension and parties opposed to the coordination framework tried to push the masses with demonstrations and portrayed them as standing against appointments and improving the economy." 
Al-Hadadi explained, "The law carries several legal violations, and the framework was not in opposition to the law as much as the demand for its amendment, as it took a proactive step in the voting session and refined many laws and imposed itself as an opponent of changing many paragraphs, including increasing the share of southern governorates and social welfare allocations, and even in the issue of lecturers."
He continued, "Now, after this atmosphere, the law is not considered a substitute for the budget, given that the budget determines the exchange doors and is one of the original government's prerogatives, and the framework focused on the need to include a single within the law that it would not be contrary to the decision of the Federal Court." 
Al-Hadadi concluded with "the speech of the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, which carried with it his categorical rejection of dialogue, and that he was ready to resign to sit with the framework forces at the negotiating table, and his call to the deputies to resign was a pressure paper on the Federal Court to approve the Food Security Law."
Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted by a majority to approve the emergency support bill for food security and development.
Representatives threatened to challenge the law, while the government welcomed its approval and promised it "compensation for the budget and stimulating the economy."

He added, "The paragraph of creating contracts came in agreement with the political blocs in general," noting that "this paragraph does not fill the actual need for unemployment among graduates, so these degrees must be according to a mechanism, announced trade-offs, and the highest levels of transparency."  

  

He continued, "The creation of contracts in this paragraph falls on the shoulders of the ministries of finance and planning, which will be concerned with preparing the instructions for the food security law."  

  

The House of Representatives voted, earlier, on the proposed law on emergency support for food security and development, while the Parliamentary Finance Committee indicated that the law included the allocation of 15,000 new contracts for bachelor graduates for three years and a salary of 300,000 dinars, provided that these contracts are distributed among 15 governorates within Regional development allocations.

Shafaq News/ The Minister of Water Resources, Mahdi Rashid Al-Hamdani, considered on Saturday that his ministry had received the lowest financial allocation among the Iraqi state ministries in the emergency food security support law recently approved by the House of Representatives.

This came in a statement he made to reporters today during an inspection visit conducted by the Floating Tharthar Pumping Station in Anbar Governorate / Fallujah District.

In his statement, the minister said, "Unfortunately, we were disappointed with the allocations that were specified in the Food Security Law, and we would have liked the support to have been more than that, because the issue is related to food security and water security, the most important part of food security."

He added that "it was supposed to allocate a trillion Iraqi dinars to the Ministry of Water Resources as a maximum and about 400 billion dinars as a minimum, but we were surprised by the allocation of only 100 billion, which is the lowest ministry among the Iraqi state ministries."

Al-Hamdani reiterated his position regarding the country's water quotas from upstream countries, saying: Iraq's water rights are a red line that cannot be crossed for any reason.

Committee member Sajjad Salem told Shafaq News Agency, "The financial allocations included in the Food Security Law are actual needs that the Iraqi people suffer from, such as the electricity file, the ration card file, the reconstruction file, and the farmers' entitlements."

Salem added, "We do not deny that some ministries and state institutions are corrupt and corruption is almost completely controlled, and this is what makes there fear about the financial allocations included in the Food Security Law, but we are in the Finance Committee in the Iraqi Parliament, we will strictly monitor the disbursement of these allocations, We will also demand statements of these expenditures, which are carried out by ministries and state institutions, to prevent any waste of money or suspicions of corruption such as thefts and others.

 Baghdad: Huda Al-Azzawi 
 
Despite the parliament’s vote on the “emergency support for food security and development” law proposal, the doors of questions and doubts about it and its paragraphs have not been closed to this day, and the opinions of specialists in financial and economic affairs about the law varied between acceptance and praise for many of its paragraphs, and those who rejected it for what it contains Legal loopholes and suspicions. Al-Sabah sought to contact members of the Parliamentary Finance Committee regarding the law, but they refused to comment.
And a member of the Parliamentary Economy and Industry Committee, Soran Omar, said in an interview with Al-Sabah: "The emergency support law contains several necessities, including the allocation of 4 trillion dinars to the debts of the Ministry of Electricity, especially since the Minister of Electricity made it clear when he attended Parliament that the Iranian side will cut off gas from Iraq within Twenty days if the accumulated debts amounting to 5 billion dollars are not paid.
He pointed out, "The necessity of the law in the matter of support in the event of a rise in global food prices as a result of the war between Russia and Ukraine, and that one of the necessary paragraphs that we supported the vote on (contracting holders of bachelor's degrees and diplomas according to the needs of specialties, for each province a thousand contractors)," noting that " The law has provisions that serve the community and are necessary, and we are with it.”
On the other hand, the Rapporteur of the Parliamentary Finance Committee for the fourth session, Dr. Ahmed Al-Saffar, indicated in an interview with “Al-Sabah” that “the proposed emergency food security law includes illegal articles, and that the authority of the caretaker government is to spend according to the 1/12 mechanism.”
Noting that "this law transformed a government that does not have financial powers to an original government that has all the financial powers, because its powers as a caretaker government (only the operating budget according to the 12/1 mechanism), but according to this law it has a full operating budget in addition to the investment budget, and it has not There remains a difference between the caretaker government and the original government, in fact, the paragraphs of this law constitute half of the entire budget.”
He explained that "there are five articles that are textually extracted from last year's 2021 budget related to continuing to borrow, and we believe that this law is to circumvent the budget law as nothing more, and their work could have been legal, this government for emergency reasons and the global food crisis due to the war between Russia and Ukraine, It could have taken a loan of 7 to 10 billion dollars to finance the ration card items and some matters related to the general level."
Al-Saffar concluded his speech by asking: "Is there anyone who came to challenge the law? Especially in light of the embarrassment of all parties due to the provisions of the law, so that the Federal Court will be embarrassed to cancel the law permanently, and perhaps it will have to cancel some of its paragraphs only."
For his part, an expert in financial affairs, Obaid Mahal, said in an interview with “Al-Sabah”: “The law does not include evidence of (food security) in its paragraphs, as the presence of large and ongoing projects within it constitutes two-thirds of the budget, while the government can provide balance, which is in its power.”  
He explained that "the government, before turning into a caretaker government, was obligated to submit the budget in accordance with the Financial Management Law, and the period during which the ministries should have submitted their budgets was in May 2021 and they are discussed by the Ministry of Finance, then they are sent to the Finance Committee and then to the Council of Ministers." In July of the same year (2021) before it turned into a caretaker government,” noting that “the failure to submit the budget by the government is a legal violation, so it would have been better to legislate the budget so that there would be no need for a special law tainted by all of these.”

 Baghdad: Hussein Thaghb 
 Shukran Al-Fatlawi 
It has become clear that the emergency support law came to confront the stage of government vacuum and to provide the material capabilities to manage the necessities with the wheel of daily life and maintain their sustainability and the legal cover for that, and it is not a substitute for the planning budget of the country, and that maintaining the exchange outlets according to the accounting contexts and principles, and spending on business and activities Planning is a matter of the executive bodies’ duty, which is supposed to observe the highest levels of professionalism and transparency. 
Development consultant Amer Al-Jawahiri said: “The emergency support law has outlets that can invest in directions and steps that contribute to the development of the economy, as the amounts estimated at 8 trillion dinars mentioned in paragraph 3, allocated to the development of the regions can be invested in development activities related to the future. These governorates, as well as the petrodollar allocations amounting to 1 trillion dinars, can be directed to development projects that have a quick impact on the life of the citizen, such as service and production projects that achieve benefits. 
several".
He stressed that “preserving the exchange outlets according to the contexts and accounting principles, and disposing of the planned work and activities is a duty of the executive bodies, which are supposed to take into account the highest levels of professionalism and transparency in implementation with quality and timing and achieve the desired results, and at the same time, the traditional duty of the House of Representatives is to monitor and follow up on government performance.” To achieve the best results for society, therefore, there is a continuous need to follow up on the implementation of all major plans and projects, the development of infrastructure and services, and to improve government performance in all areas, not just to follow up on the implementation of the emergency support law.”
He added: "In this regard, we suggest the formation of a "Development and Reconstruction Council" in each governorate, and it will have a comprehensive and sustainable strategy with executive programs that cover financing from paragraphs 3 and 6 of this law. With regard to Dhi Qar governorate, its reconstruction fund can be converted to be a "Dhi Qar Council for Development and Reconstruction." “And its financing basis is available.” 
 
great programs
He pointed out that “the importance of the coming period witnessing the move to prepare a planning budget for the current year 2022, provided that it includes large programs, which may be overlapping for items and programs, at the same time the executive bodies must have started preparing the planning budget for the next year 2023 according to the methodology of programs despite That this will be the decision of the next government.”
He cautioned against "the inevitability of realizing the severity of the significant decline in the reality of the Iraqi economy, the business environment and investment, and the level of Iraq's competitiveness in front of multiple challenges, which requires a comprehensive change in the methodology and method of managing all economic files near, medium and long-term. This is achieved only with the participation of all stakeholders and that there be a development strategy It includes a binding decision for implementation with legal and financial cover according to unstoppable timetables, regardless of the political circumstances and developments in the reality of the country.”  
ruling expenditures
The specialist in economic affairs, Dr. Mustafa Mohamed Ibrahim, said: “The emergency support law after voting on it is extremely important because it is an alternative to the general budget law for 2022, which has not yet been voted on for political reasons. Therefore, this law is important at the present time because of its coverage. The governing operational and investment expenditures, especially infrastructure projects as well as electrical energy projects and the payment of debts owed by the Ministry of Electricity in the amount of 4 trillion dinars, as well as food security through financing the Ministry of Trade by financing the ration card and providing wheat, barley and rye at an amount of 5 billion and 500 million dinars to pay the dues of farmers in the Kurdistan region.
 
Ministry of Labor
He pointed out that "the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs has allocated one trillion dinars and the same amount for wages, insane lecturers and contracts, and the rest of the allocations in this law are divided into the rest of the ministries such as the Institution of Political Prisoners and the Border Guard Command."
He explained that “the view of this law from an economic point of view is that it is the economic term for the country in light of the rise in global oil prices, offset by the rise in the general government spending of the country with the continued failure to create a sovereign wealth fund to ensure the Iraqi economy from dependence on the derived commodity, which is (oil), as well as the shift from Expenditure is 1/12 to the current spending allocated in accordance with the legislated law. 
 
field committee
And he indicated that “the funds of this allocation are preserved in ways that reduce corruption in a real way, which is the use of the actual records method of disbursement, that is, the disbursement is carried out according to what has been actually implemented, whether in operational or investment spending, as well as the formation of a field committee in the Ministry of Finance that follows up the mechanism of disbursement of this law, They will be specialized (accounting - financial and banking, economics) to undertake the process of disbursement and follow-up in an automated manner, and to work to keep all parties from approaching this law in privatization. financial

Al-Kazemi stipulated in the above directive to ensure that the necessary financial allocations are available without requesting additional financial allocations; This is in fairness to the segment of contracts and daily wages, and for the purpose of improving their standard of living and calculating their services.”
The Council of Ministers approved calculating the daily wage service for daily wage earners in accordance with the provisions of Article (5) of Labor Law No. (37) for the year 2015, which authorized the calculation of the worker’s service for the purposes of determining salary and retirement in the event that it is fixed on the permanent owner, provided that pension contributions are met, in coordination with the Ministry of Finance, and the Federal Public Service Council.
The Council affirmed the suspension of appointment as a contract or daily wage in a way that does not contradict the law of emergency support for food security and development, which the House of Representatives recently voted on.
