Deputy - Questioning the Minister of Finance and the Governor of the Central Bank may amount to dismissalMember of Parliament Rasha Al-Hatami confirmed, on Saturday, Parliament’s insistence on questioning Finance Minister Ali Allawi and the Governor of the Central Bank, indicating that the interrogation may amount to dismissal because of their failure to manage the security file.

Al-Hatami said in a televised statement, “We hold the Al-Kazimi government responsible for the delay in sending the budget, as it did not reach Parliament, and we are ready to discuss it.”

She added, “We refuse to prejudice the salaries of employees and any measures related to cutting salaries,” calling on the government to “activate other economic aspects and supply the state treasury without resorting to salaries deduction.”

Al-Hatami threatened to “take all measures in Parliament to prevent government policies that affected the lives of citizens. We have asked to question the governor of the Central Bank and the Minister of Finance regarding raising the exchange rate of the dollar, which may reach dismissal.”
