The MP, the member of the Parliamentary Economic Committee, Aziz al-Mayahi, criticized the mechanism of distributing the allocations of budget of 2013 on the provinces.
He said to a press conference on Thursday (31st January, 2013) that the Parliamentary Financial Committee and the other specialized committees have given the suggestions to the Ministry of Finance to adhere to needs of the provinces while allocating their allocations according to their population.
The MoF refused this suggestion and repeated the same mistake that was done in the former budgets without taking into consideration the difference between the provinces regarding the tourism, natural resources, and the borders inlets, he added.
He emphasized the necessity of treating some provinces such as Diwaniya and Muthana in a special way because they depend on the agriculture as the only source where the agriculture sector has turned down in the last few years which came with a result of declining the condition in these provinces.
