Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) MP, Abdul Hussien Resan, of the Economic and Investment Parliamentary Committee assured that the allocations of the regions and the provinces in the Budget law of 2013 are less than the allocations of 2012 Budget which indicates the tendency of centralism.
He stated to IraqiNews.com “Reducing the provinces allocations enhances the rejected centralism amid all the calls to enhance the role of the provinces through a decentered method.”
“The success achieved by some provinces is evidence that provinces must be granted more authorities,” he added.
“The Governors and the heads of the Provincial Councils should not be affected by the political situation and the disputes between the Government and some political sides by giving up their rights in order to avoid pressurizing the Government,” he continued.
“The Minister withdraws most of the Governors’ authorities as he assumes the task of the Ministry which consolidates the central tendency,” he stressed.
He called the PCs and Governors to call and to pressurize to take their authorities.”
