KRG al­lo­cates IQD15.5b for elec­toral com­mis­sion

The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

Com­mis­sion shall hire 521 em­ploy­ees

Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment al­lo­cated some IQD 15.5 bil­lion (ap­prox­i­mately US$12.5 mil­lion) for the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s Higher In­de­pen­dent Elec­toral Com­mis­sion and it is plan­ning to hire 521 peo­ple for the com­mis­sion.

Han­dren Mo­hammed, head of the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion, says the gov­ern­ment has made the de­ci­sion, but they have not yet re­ceived the finds.

“The fund is for the op­er­at­ing ex­penses of the of­fices,” Mo­hammed says. “The bud­get is ex­pected to be de­liv­ered in the near fu­ture.”

Mo­hammed also added that they will open of­fices in each province and each pro­vin­cial of­fice will have some 60 em­ploy­ees, who are hired on a per­ma­nent ba­sis rather than a con­tract ba­sis.

“We have sub­mit­ted a re­quest for hir­ing 521 em­ploy­ees, and the gov­ern­ment has al­ready ap­proved it. The re­cruit­ing process shall be based on qual­i­fi­ca­tions and we have pre­pared an ap­pli­ca­tion form for any­one who wants to ap­ply for a po­si­tion with the Com­mis­sion.”

Mo­hammed also ex­plained that as soon as they get the green­light from the gov­ern­ment, they will meet and dis­cuss the de­tails of the re­cruit­ing process.
