Abu Nader Calls for Shortening of Lengthy Budget Discussion Sessions

Kataeb leader's top adviser Fouad Abu Nader on Wednesday called for reducing the lengthy Parliament sessions aimed at debating the 2019 draft budget, saying that only the opposition lawmakers must take the floor to discuss the blueprint.

“Given that all the political parties that are represented in the government have approved the draft, then why don’t we limit interventions to the opposition lawmakers who signed the appeal against the electricity plan?” Abu Nader wrote on his Twitter page, noting that by doing so, the blueprint would be debated in just one day.

Abu Nader added that limiting the budget discussions to one day would spare the Lebanese platitudes and "fake gallantry" by lawmakers who have agreed in advance to the government's financial plan.
