Hizbullah Bloc Urges Govt. to Tackle Corruption, Tax Evasion

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

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%.

This is demagoguery FPM style. In other words, do as we say but not as we do.

The gov should also address the terrorism issue, It should unleash the LAF and ISF and hunt every single one of the terrorists living from Baalbek to Naqoura via Dahye.
