Article quote: “The budget bill arrived at the Presidency of the Council of Representatives by the government to put on the agenda and approval”
THE BUDGET BILL MAY BE ON THE AGENDA FOR THE 27TH WHEN PARLIAMENT RECONVENES WHICH LEAVES ONLY FIVE (5) BEFORE THE 1ST OF NOVEMBER AND THE LAST TWO DAYS OF THE MONTH ARE FRIDAY HOLY DAY AND SATURDAY ( HOLIDAYS ).
MY POINT IS THAT THERE ARE THREE (3) ” WORKING ” DAYS LEFT TO THE PARLIAMENT FOR TWO READINGS AND A VOTE.
MY BELIEF HAS BEEN AND IS THAT THERE IS A FOUR (4) DAY WAITING PERIOD BETWEEN THE SECOND READING AND A VOTE. WE MAY FIND OUT WHETHER I AM CORRECT NEXT WEEK.
MY read/take is that if the budget is not voted upon by the 1st that the recess will be will not start on the 1st and the session extended for 30 days to complete adoption of the budget law.
No way it can be done in the next 11 days, IMO, so we are into November if the article is accurate.
