Wednesday, October 20th 2010 7:54 PM


Babel, Oct. 20 (AKnews) Ė the head council of Babel, Kazim Majeed Tooman, said that the federal government in Baghdad approved on Babelís total financial budget of 2010, 152 billion Iraqi Dinars, which includes the financial budget of 2008, 148 Billion IDs.

http://www.aknews.com/images/cms-image-000001458.gifTooman said that the current allocated amount for 2010 budget is 4 billion IDs. This approval comes after Babelís council obtains the confirmation on retaining the cycled money, by the Iraqi Ministry of Finance.

However, the Ministry of Finance has reneged on its promises. Withdrew its previous retained amounts mentioned above, causing embarrassment to the province after it announced new projects

Aqeel Silawi, the head of the energy committee in the council said that Babelís council has the wish to raise a charge against the two Ministries finance and planning, for withdrawing the money.

Silawi told AKnews that the Ministry of finance issued a formal letter in April 3rd 2010 about disbursing %30 of the total cycled amounts 148 billion IDs, as well as disbursing %10 of 2010ís budget 152 billion IDs.

Silawi emphasized that the council will not waive on his rights, because those amounts belong to the citizens of Babel.

An official source in Diwaniyah , wished to be unnamed, said on Sept. 24 that the Ministry of finance refuses to disburse the 148 billion IDs from 2008ís Babel budget.

The Ministry of Finance had previously agreed on returning the surplus amount of 2008ís budget to Babel, where the council called for it in order to add it up to the provincial budget of 2010

okay...let me see if I get this right...when did they approve this budget? If the letter was dated April 4th, then the budget was passed before that. Did the previous government do so, or what?

It's in the Today's News link of AKnews, but thought we had been waiting for the approval of it for awhile.

But guardian, how can you pass a budget with no parliament?

Only if Parliament is in session, which they might be, but not announced to us yet.
