Advisor to the Secretary-General of the Council of Ministers for Financial Affairs, Obaid Mahal, said, on Sunday, that all the budget articles voted upon are in violation of the constitution.
Mahal said, with regard to the budget and the texts that were voted on, that “all the articles that have been voted in violation of the constitution, one of the articles of the constitution confirms that the session of the House of Representatives does not end except with the approval of the budget and the discussion of it is not less, but with its approval, and this is what happened in 2014 and 2020. And it should have been approved before the end of the session. "
He added: "In Article 60, those who prepare draft laws are the President of the Republic and the Council of Ministers only. As for parliamentary proposals, they are submitted to the Council of Ministers, not to vote on them directly. One of the powers of the Parliament stipulated in the constitution and the bylaw is to conduct the transfer, request the budget reduction and submit proposals to the government to increase some Clauses, and when necessary, Parliament proposes to the Council of Ministers to increase the funds for expenditures. "
He noted, "Until now, we do not know what changes have been made to the budget," stressing that "everything in the budget violates the constitution." Ended 29 / A43
