Jubouri stated to IraqiNews.com on Wednesday ”The social benefits of the three presidencies exist in the State budget of 2013 and it was listed within the budget law project,” noting that “The amounts that were allocated for each presidency reaches IQD 7,5 billion.”

”The financial committee recommends to cancel these social benefits in similar way to the situation in the state budgets of the past two years, and transport its funds to the social welfare network.”
