Hizbullah Bloc Urges Govt. to Tackle Corruption, Tax Evasionإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Hizbullah's Loyalty to Resistance parliamentary bloc on Thursday stressed that “Parliament's approval of the tax law aimed at securing revenues to cover the new wage scale's cost does not absolve the government of its responsibility to combat corruption and tax evasion.”
In a statement issued after its weekly meeting, the bloc also underscored the need to “implement the Constitution” regarding the state budget, emphasizing the importance of “achieving general financial regularity in order to create growth and curb deficit.”
Parliament has recently approved new taxes aimed at funding the long-awaited wage scale. The bloc's MPs abstained from voting after they rejected hiking VAT from 10% to 11%.
