NEWS EDITOR MEDIA
THE Rt. Hon. Speaker of Parliament Anita Annet Among has this afternoon revealed that Parliament will work towards fulfilling the constitutional demand of ensuring that the Final Budget draft is processed and delivered today. 2022/2023 Budget reading will take place on June 14, 2022.
This assurance came this afternoon as she opened plenary that commenced at 2PM.
It should be noted that today’s plenary had been scheduled to start at 10AM. However, Speaker Among was informed that the budget committee needed more time to finalise the matter before their presentation could be tabled.
“We got some challenges with the budget committee that is still considering the budget and remember the deadline is today. We have to finish the budget. I pray that you consider my apology,” Speaker Among said.
She added: “As you are aware, we have a constitutional obligation that we must finish the budget process.”
The budget is expected to be tabled by the chairperson of the Parliamentary Committee on budget Mr Patrick Isiagi.
