Budget update requires at least three more weeks

The realistic deadline for updating the budget is three weeks from now, Lubomir Karimanski, chairman of the parliamentary budget committee and MP of "There Is Such a People", has told BNR.

According to him, the President and the National Assembly should agree on the number of days for the upcoming presidential and possibly parliamentary elections, as the budget envisages funds only for a 2-in-1 vote. The MP said that finances must be envisaged over a possible wave of refugees. When it comes to the possibility of compensating the business for the growth of the Covid epidemic, he said: "There is no way to pour money where tangible results related to the effect on the economy cannot be seen." /BGNES
