09:11 09/11/2022

The Assembly of Albania will meet this Wednesday to discuss the draft budget for 2023.

“There are two main objectives… It is about mitigating the impact of the global crisis that actually affects Albania, but also about helping the most needy people in Albania, and keeping the price of electricity unchanged.

Another objective is the fiscal consolidation of public finance revenues in our country. It must be said that the Ministry of Finance has declared that for the year 2023 Albania will have an economic growth of 2.6%, which has been viewed with skepticism by the opposition.“, journalist Enkel Xhangoli reported.

A long session is expected that will last until the afternoon hours.

The Assembly is expected to hold a plenary session on this issue on Thursday as well. In principle, the draft budget was approved by the deputies of the Economy and Finance Committee.

Before these two days of plenary sessions started, there were debates about the budget, and this is expected to happen during the plenary sessions as well.

The opposition has its objections to the draft budget and has considered the increase in municipal funds for 2023, the year in which local elections will be held, as an electoral budget.

On the other hand, Prime Minister Edi Rama has stated that the 2023 budget will be twice as large as that of 2013. According to him, this is a positive indicator of the government’s work./broread
