Hankache: Parliamentary Sessions to Debate Draft Budget Will Be a Charade

Kataeb MP Elias Hankache on Tuesday expected the parliamentary sessions aimed at debating the government's draft budget to be like a "charade", blaming the country's flawed political system for that.

"Lawmakers who are part of blocs represented in the government will take the floor to voice objection to budget articles (taxes and cuts) that were approved by their fellow ministers who are affiliated to the same political group, then they will vote for it," Hankache wrote on Twitter.

"The opposition lawmakers are the ones who are truly responsible of straightening the budget," he said.
