AMAL Bloc Rejects How Budget was Passed and New Taxes

The Development and Liberation bloc of the Amal Movement on Friday stressed its “rejection of the manner in which the state budget was approved” Thursday in Cabinet.

In a statement issued after a meeting, the bloc also rejected “that the budget include any new taxes or fees targeting the Lebanese, of whom the vast majority has become under the poverty line.”

It also said that it categorically rejects maintaining “the approach of exhausting the state’s finances by giving loans to Electricite du Liban without obtaining electricity and amid the absence of the sector’s regulatory commission and a clear plan by the relevant ministry.”
