[size=45]The Legal Committee said that sending the 2020 budget bill from the government to Parliament is legal in accordance with the Federal Financial Administration Law No. 6 of 2019 even if it is a caretaker government.
[size=45]"After accepting the resignation of Prime Minister Adel Abdel Mahdi by Parliament, the government has become a caretaker and there is a problem. Can the caretaker government send the draft budget ?, and according to the internal system of the cabinet, which states that However, the caretaker government does not have to send bills to Parliament, and according to this system, the cabinet is looking for a legal loophole through which to send the budget.[/size]
[size=45]She added, “It is true according to the internal regulations of the Council of Ministers that the caretaker government is not entitled to send bills to parliament, but the Federal Financial Administration Law No. 6 of 2019 obliges the government to send the budget to parliament in mid-October every year whether the government is normal or caretaker. According to the principle of legislative progression, the aforementioned law must be applied, not the internal system.[/size]
[size=45]And she added that "the budget law is not a sovereign business and has its own nature and differs from other draft laws because it is a daily necessity and the legislation of necessity is considered because it relates to all citizens, and therefore the Council of Ministers can send it to Parliament."[/size]
[size=45]Mahmoud stressed that "the budget law is one of the important laws that differs from the rest of the other draft laws, and who has an objection can go to the Federal Court and challenge that, even if it is decided by the said court."[/size]
