SULAIMANI — Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Spokesperson Jotiar Adil said on Monday (January 17) the KRG has decided to carry out reforms regarding government employees’ salaries.

Adil told Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) media outlets that the decision does not mean employees’ salaries will be reduced but instead employees on the payroll who do not work will no longer receive salaries.

The decision involves employees whose names are listed in KRG ministries and administrations who never attend work but continue to receive salaries.

Adil also said the KRG has a plan to diversify the Kurdistan Region’s income by encouraging the private sector and investment.
