Somali parliament to approve the 2019 budget

Somalia federal parliaments today on 30/12/2018 are expected to approve the 2019 budget.

The agenda of the House of the People of the Federal Parliament of Somalia is today focused on voting for the government financial budget for the year 2019, according to the Speaker of the House of Representatives Mohamed Mursal.

The House of the People of the Federal Parliament will also grant the Council of Ministers and the 3rd Amendment of the Law of the Armed Forces.

The lawmakers have yesterdays discussed the budget of the government financial budget of 2019, as the Finance Minister of the Federal Government of Somalia Abdirahman Duale Beyle has briefed the lawmakers on the findings of the budget.

The cabinet has last October approved a $340 million budget for the financial year 2019, the largest in recent years tripling the 2013 budget which stood at $114 million.

The budget which is also an increase of $70 million from last years $274 will see its financing drawn from the domestic market.
