NNA - Head of the Finance and Budget Committee, MP Ibrahim Kanaan, said in a statement from the House of Representatives "We are waiting for the draft budget," and "ready despite all the difficult political and economic conditions to hold daily meetings."

"The financial reform is a cumulative and continuous work, and we have started it for a long time, regulatory and legislatively. There is no doubt that the 2018 budget included a number of reform provisions recommended by the 2017 budget," he said.

Pointing out that "the completion of the budget less than 6 months after 12 years on the absence of budgets is a major achievement for the Parliament and all its deputies," the MP said "the issue of educational grants for private sector workers has been put aside because we have not yet been informed of the budget that has been set."
