Aoun Says Budget Approval Puts Govt's Financial Management on Right Track


After the Cabinet approved the draft 2018 State budget, President Michel Aoun said on Tuesday “the most important process of managing the State's finances has been achieved.”

“With the budget approval by adjusting revenues and expenditures, and start reducing the deficit, the most important process of managing the State's finances has been achieved,” said Aoun in a tweet.

On Monday, the Cabinet approved the state budget sending it to Parliament for ratification.

Budgets of ministries have been slashed by 20%.

Prime Minister Saad Hariri said the “budget includes reforms and incentives for all sectors and it will achieve a surplus in all ministries.”

وحول أصول الرئيس اللبناني ميشال عون، قال نصر الله: “ميشال عون من أحفاد علي بن أبي طالب، والكثير من الشيعة في جزين إما تسننوا أو تنصروا، ومدينة جزين أصبحت مسيحية”.

كما اعتبر أن مكانة ولاية الفقيه فوق الدستور اللبناني، قائلا: “نحن نؤمن بأن ولاية الفقيه فوق الدستور، ونعتبر تنفيذ أوامر ولي الفقيه واجبا إجباريا”.

نصرالله: مكانة ولاية الفقيه فوق الدستور اللبناني.. وعون من أحفاد علي بن أبي طالب
