Shafaq News / Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shiaa Al-Sudani directed to disrupt official working hours on the first Monday of next May in conjunction with International Labor Day.

On May 1, 1886, more than 340,000 Americans announced the departure of work and the strike, and workers’ protests came under the attack of police forces on May 4 in the city of Haymarket, resulting in the loss of many workers’ lives.

In 1889, the World Workers’ Congress was held, 400 delegates attended this conference, and a decision was made to set 8 hours a day to work.

The conference approved the proposal of the representative of the workers of the French city of Bordeaux La Vigne to designate May 1 as International Workers’ Day, and the celebration of this day began from 1890 to the present day.

This day has become part of the culture of all countries of the world.

Prime Minister Mohammed Shia Al-Sudani chaired a meeting of the Committee for the Localization of Salaries and the Unified Treasury Account, in the presence of the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, the Minister of Finance, the Prime Minister’s advisers, the general directors of Al-Rafidain, Al-Rasheed and Iraqi Trade Banks, and a representative of the Federal Financial Supervision Office.

“The delay in implementing the unified treasury account over the past years has caused many cases of corruption and abuse of public funds, the latest of which was the crime of stealing tax guarantee funds (theft of the century),” al-Sudani said.

He stressed “the need to address the matter by applying the unified treasury system to reduce corruption, pointing out that the continuation of the current situation makes the state unaware of the amount of its balances and accounts or the number of its employees.”

Al-Sudani directed “to speed up the preparation of new standards, including the largest number of electronic payment companies, which number about 16 companies, and to contract with companies that provide better services at a lower cost.”

He also directed “the formation of a committee of representatives of ministries, governorates and government banks to install electronic payment points (POS) in all institutions, and to use international experiences and foreign expertise to support the project and encourage citizens to adopt it and deal financially through it.”
