A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Jamal Cougar, confirmed that there is no specific date for the budget to reach Parliament for approval.
Cougar said in a press statement: "There is no communication between the Finance Committee and the government about the state's general budget law for the year 2023," pointing out: "The Finance Committee and Parliament do not interfere in issuing new laws, which are the government's jurisdiction."
He added, "The Finance Committee did not receive a new salary scale law for employees, as well as amending the Pensioners Law," indicating that there is talk about studying the two laws in the government.
He explained: "The approval of the budget law in Parliament will take a long time if it is controversial, and a short time if it is not, and in all cases it needs about a month for its approval after its arrival in Parliament."
