On Saturday, the Parliamentary Finance Committee suggested approving the draft budget within a period of two months, indicating that there is a general desire among members of the House of Representatives to pass the budget law.
Cougar said in a press statement, "The approval of the budget for the next year will not face many difficulties, as in previous budgets, especially since the understandings of the political forces before the formation of the government have determined many of the financial entitlements of the governorates in general."
He added, "The size of the budget for next year is not less than 150 billion dollars, especially since oil is sold at a good price in global markets, as the country relies on financing budget revenues from selling oil."
Cougar suggested that "the budget bill will be approved within a period of two months or a little more, due to the general orientation of Parliament, which has become one orientation, and through the desire of most political blocs to pass it."
