The Director of the Information and Documentation Center at the Ministry of Labor and Rehabilitation, Masoud Gadaffi said that the amount of job seekers registered on the system is 126,000, of whom, approximately 72,000 are from the western region.

Gadaffi indicated that the registered number is unrealistic, citing a lack of data for job seekers at Labor Offices nationwide, particularly those located in the eastern region, but also to the reluctance of job seekers themselves to register, due to lack of job opportunities.
