HoR official anticipates a “yes” vote on budget in Monday’s session


Posted – 24th May 2021

The Head of the House of Representatives (HoR) Finance Committee, Omar Tantoush, says he expects a “yes” vote on the government’s proposed draft budget in the Parliament’s session to be convened on Monday.

“The draft budget will be scheduled for voting in Monday’s session and will not be put for debate again,” Tantoush stressed.

According to the HoR official, the government took all recommendations made by the committee and provided a detailed budget as requested, indicating that most of the MPs’ impressions are positive.

“Due to the sensitive current stage, the government needs many expenditures, and we in the HoR’s Finance Committee understand that,” he added.

On the other hand, Tantoush ruled out any differences between the HoR Speaker Aqila Saleh, and his first deputy, Fawzi al-Nuri, on this issue, noting that the debate was about the mechanism of calling for the budget’s session.
