*SCZIN11: GOOD MORNING
chattels: ‹@*SCZIN11› good morning
chattels: ‹@*SCZIN11› My sense is that the IMF is " targeting " the use of its loans by requiring the reduction in salaries.
chattels: But, as you say, there is much that we do not know.
*SCZIN11: ‹@chattels› AND HOW CAN IMF REQUIRE BUDGET REVISION, 5 MONTHS INTO THE FISCAL YEAR, KNOWING THE PROCESS NECESSARY FOR REVISION APPROVAL?
chattels: " transparency " is not a word applicable to Iraq.
chattels: ‹@*SCZIN11› Perhaps the " other doors in the general budget " allow for administrative actions without a vote in Parliament ?
*SCZIN11: WITH WHAT WE ARE LEAD TO BELIEVE ABOUT THE STATUS OF PARLIAMENT, WHERE WE ARE BEING TOLD IN THE LAS HOUR THEY ARE PUSHING FOR A RESUMPTION OF MEETINGS THIS WEEK, IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE WHO WOULD BE ENTERING THE "OTHER DOOR"
chattels: Not sure that I follow you
chattels: " there are other doors in the general budget can be accessed for the required reduction is staff salaries. "
chattels: Perhaps the " other doors " are ways that budget cuts can be accomplished without amendment of the budget / act of Parliament ?
*SCZIN11: ‹@chattels› I WAS JOKING...THEY DONT HAVE A FUNCTIONING PARLIAMENT AT THIS MOMENT, ACCORDING TO WHAT I READ
*SCZIN11: SO WHO WOULD GO THROUGH THE OPEN DOORS..IT WAS A JOKE
