Govt. Postpones Debate on Annulling Free Minutes for Postpaid Cellphone Subscribers
The Council of Ministers on Thursday failed to reach an agreement over a recommendation by the telecom minister to annul a 2014 decision granting postpaid cellphone subscribers 60 minutes free of charge.
Information Minister Jamal al-Jarrah told reporters that the issue was postponed for further assessment.
Asked when the government will discuss the 2019 state budget, Jarrah said Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Finance Minister Ali Hassan Khalil are putting the “final touches” on it and that it would be discussed as soon as possible.
