NNA - "We rejected the state budget as a triggering sign of alert to those concerned in order to prepare the 2020 draft budget according to our proposals, and placing the right finger on the wound while respecting the constitutional deadlines imposed and completing the required closure of accounts," said MP Ziad Hawat via his Twitter account earlier today.

Meanwhile and on a different note, Hawat promised to submit a draft project law against airport arrests due to traffic violations.

In a follow-up tweet, he said: "In wake of the case raised by Attorney Mark Habka regarding the arrest of Lebanese citizens at Beirut Airport as a result of the provisions of traffic violations issued against them, and after the appeal of HE the Minister of the Interior yesterday to amend the applicable law, next will be a practical step on my part, namely to prepare the needed draft project law for the amendment required to address the flaws in this respect."
