In­tegrity Com­mit­tee to clean up gov­ern­ment staff lists

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s In­tegrity Board has re­quested the gov­ern­ment to pro­vide names of all gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees who re­ceive a salary but don’t work.

Ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cial let­ter from the In­tegrity Board to the Pres­i­dency of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment’s Coun­cil of Min­is­ters, the Board re­quests the Coun­cil to pro­vide in­for­ma­tion about those em­ploy­ees. The in­for­ma­tion re­quest came in the shape of a form to in­clude full names, gen­der, date of birth, ed­u­ca­tion cer­tifi­cate, grad­u­a­tion year, em­ploy­ment year, po­si­tion and phone num­ber.

Fol­low­ing the re­ceipt of the let­ter, the Min­is­te­rial Coun­cil is­sued an or­der to all its min­istries and in­sti­tu­tions as well as the Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment and Pres­i­dency to pro­vide all the re­quested in­for­ma­tion.

The coun­cil has warned all the in­sti­tu­tions that fail­ure to com­ply with the re­quire­ments will lead to le­gal ac­tions.

“This is us­ing one of our Board’s au­thor­i­ties to mon­i­tor the em­ploy­ment and ad­min­is­tra­tive sit­u­a­tion in the gov­ern­ment in­sti­tu­tions and will be in the ben­e­fit of the in­sti­tu­tions,” said Dr. Ah­mer An­war, Head of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion In­tegrity Board.

Ali Hama Salih, Mem­ber of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s Par­lia­ment, had pre­vi­ously an­nounced that there are more than 100,000 gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees who do noth­ing and get a salary from the gov­ern­ment.

“Some say there are 50,000 such em­ploy­ees and some say 100, 000,” Dr. An­war says. “We have re­quested th­ese data to con­firm the num­bers.”

Dr. An­war was op­ti­mist about re­ceiv­ing the re­quested in­for­ma­tion and said that the min­is­te­rial coun­cil has made the or­der to col­lect the in­for­ma­tion and they will for­ward the lists to us after col­lec­tion.

“The min­is­te­rial coun­cil is now busy with a survey about this is­sue di­rectly.”

There are 1.4 mil­lion peo­ple who re­ceive salary from the gov­ern­ment while only 740 thou­sand of them ac­tu­ally work for the gov­ern­ment in­sti­tu­tions.
