Barzani in Mu­nich to Par­tic­i­pate in Se­cu­rity Con­fer­ence

The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

While the Kur­dis­tan re­gion is strug­gling with an acute eco­nomic cri­sis, Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani has is­sued a sweep­ing or­der to fight the hard­ship and im­prove the sit­u­a­tion in the re­gion.

Barzani or­dered the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Govern­ment (KRG) late on the Wed­nes­day to re­con­sider the gov­ern­men­tal struc­ture of the KRG and un­der­take im­me­di­ate fi- nan­cial mea­sures to im­prove peo­ple’s lives in the re­gion.

He urged the govern­ment to re­form the rev­enue sources and cut umer­ited spend­ing as well as con­duct­ing ref­or­ma­tion in the in­vest­ment sec­tor.

The or­der comes as the KRG’s civil ser­vants have not re­ceived their salaries for few months and there are peace­ful demon­stra­tions in some dis­tricts of the Kurd- is­tan Re­gion, de­mand­ing un­paid salaries.

Only hours be­fore the or­der, Barzani, who serves also as the pres­i­dent of the Kur­dis­tan Demo­cratic Party (KDP), is­sued a sep­a­rate or­der to urge his party to in­ves­ti­gate all the cases of cor­rup­tion and mis­use of au­thor­ity in which KDP mem­bers may have been in­volved.
