Ismaili: The government is not worried about the budget reform by the parliament

The deputy chairman of the parliament’s social commission said: “I do not know that the 1400 budget bill will be returned to the government for reform because the government is not worried about the budget reform by the parliament and it is not in the country’s interest to return the budget to the government.”

But Ismaili in an interview with ISNA about the strengths and weaknesses of the 1400 budget bill said: the budget must correspond to the realities of society and all our efforts in specialized parliamentary commissions are to bring the budget closer to the realities of society. Expenditure lines in the 1400 budget bill grew by about 50 percent, while revenues grew by 10-15 percent.

The deputy chairman of the social commission of the parliament, stating that the government’s revenue in the 1400 budget bill is not stable, said: the daily sale of 2.3 million barrels of oil is not a stable revenue. The government has proposed a way to sell the bonds to compensate. Every economist knows that selling bonds means selling the money of the future. As a result, subsequent governments will be in debt if they do not sell the projected amount of oil.

The representative of Garmi and Moghan people in the parliament added: we must change our stable incomes by increasing taxes. This tax can be levied on companies and the rich.

This member of the Ardabil Provincial Assembly said about the increase in employees ‘salaries in the 1400 budget: “In my opinion, the increase in employees’ salaries will not be enough for them in 1400.” Of course, we are in a situation of inflation and sanctions, and we should increase salaries based on income, not unrealistically increase employees’ salaries. We hope to make a rational decision about the salary increase so that the salary increase is in the dignity of the people.

Referring to the need for cooperation between the government and parliament in approving the 1400 budget, he said: “All our efforts are to reform the budget with the help of the government.” The government and the parliamentary integration commission work well together.

Referring to the closed session of the parliament on Monday (Monday), Ismaili said: “Considering the words of the deputies in the Islamic Consultative Assembly, I do not think that the 1400 budget bill will be returned to the government for reform because the government has implicitly agreed to amend the law too much.” In other words, the government is not worried about the budget reform by the parliament. My personal opinion is that it is not in the interest of the country to return the budget to the government, given the sanctions, inflation and the coronary situation. God willing, with the cooperation of the parliament and the structural reforms of the parliament, we will approve a good budget for the year 1400.
