The problem of slackness in the state apparatus has not yet found solutions that can lift the burden of the public budget, which drains from its size by about 60%, as an operational budget. This is one of the main reasons for the continued deficit in the public budgets, which reached in 2017 more than 21 trillion Dinars, not to mention the financial and administrative corruption rampant in most joints of the state.

The parliamentary committee on economy and investment confirms that the main point that led the government to adopt the five-year law is the large decline in the state apparatus. It called for the need to expedite the sending of a private sector pension law to the parliament for approval. , While experts believe that the special grades and appointments in the three presidencies are depleting the country's economic resources in a large operational budget, which means that this functional apparatus did not work correctly.

A member of the parliamentary committee of economy and investment, Najeeba Najib, stressed in an interview with Al-Mada that the issue of inflation in the state apparatus is one of the most delicate and very important issues that put pressure on the public budget. It is known that the administrative slack of increasing public sector numbers is not built On the basis of the correct basis of the need of the institution or the ministry for that service, which form and constitutes to date, a great financial burden on the state, the job means financial allocation.

Najib wonders why the Federal Service Center for 2009 has not yet done so, at a time when it should have been done to put the right person in the right place, especially since the non-activation and retention of citizens on the basis of nepotism and nepotism and not on the basis of certificate or academic achievement,

The need for the institution or the ministry, was the result of chaos in the administration, because one of the features of failure is the financial vacuum and disguised unemployment that cost the state large sums, noting that the increase in the number of employees in a certain ministry, meaning they need transfer fees and invoices for communications and processing, Operating expenses increase The weight on the shoulders of the state.

The main point that prompted the government to adopt the five-year-old five-year law is because of the great slack in the state apparatus.

The measure came in accordance with the recommendations of the International Monetary Fund. The latter has an agreement with the Iraqi government to carry out monetary and economic reform.

Najib affirms that all specialists in economic affairs have come to agree on the existence of a functional increase, which made the citizen prefer to go to the public sector not to activate the private sector, but now there is a tendency in the government to encourage citizens to go to the private sector,

which will not be without granting the pension To the workers in the private sector, pointing out: the existence of a draft law in this regard exists with the government and the State Consultative Council, has not yet reached the parliament, so we call on the government to expedite the sending of this project to legislate to be an encouraging factor to direct people to work in the private sector, The main reason The five-year leave for employees with a nominal salary includes a text encouraging the citizen to transfer his service to the private sector, namely, activating retirement in the private sector.

This is certainly one of the most important solutions to get rid of the slack in the Governmental state, in addition to the need not to be appointed later in the public office on the basis of nepotism and nepotism.

In turn, economic expert Salama Smisem said in an interview with (Al-Mada) that one of the most important problems of the Iraqi state is the inflation of the job system, which witnessed a significant increase after 2003 in return for the deterioration and decrease of productivity among the state employees, which means that this device is non-employee and not managed Correctly, a convincing food for every proven production, while the state should put in place rapid solutions to curb the growth of this matter, which feeds heavily from the state budget.

On the other hand, the special grades and appointments in the three presidencies, such as the prime minister, the presidency and the parliament, is another waste, and even deliberate misuse, which led to the depletion of Iraqi economic resources in a large operational budget, instead of going into important development projects To the Iraqi economy, until Iraq became like selling oil to spend on these grades, which constitute a significant exploitation of economic wealth over the years and years to come.

The inflation of the state apparatus, its slackness and its low effectiveness, according to some, indicate that political decision-makers do not have an integrated development vision for the country. They are qualified to create employment opportunities for the unemployed. They are therefore resorting to the easy way to employ the workforce by appointing them in the state apparatus. Which is estimated at 80% of the number of employees in the state apparatus, which costs the annual general budget about 60% of its appropriations.

On August 8, 2015, the Iraqi government took urgent administrative and financial reforms to abolish a number of sites in the three presidencies and to reduce some privileges and salaries. The number of ministries was reduced, followed by austerity measures that affected the salaries of the employees, with taxes and fees on most services. These measures for a little improvement both in the Iraqi economy or in activating the work of other sectors such as agricultural and industrial or to reduce the proportion of deficit in the state budget.
