BAGHDAD, Dec.7 (AKnews) - Civil servants jobs will go next year as the 2012 budget says Government will employ only 85,000 people according to an official.

Head of the Financial Committee at the House of Representatives, Haidar Edadi told AKnews 125,000 jobs will be reduced to 85,000 "due to budget deficiency for the investment projects."
