Head of the Finance and Budget House committee, MP Ibrahim Kanaan, said Tuesday that the body’s next session will be devoted to discussing the US-to-LBP exchange rate.
“It is inadmissible to have more than a rate,” the lawmaker told reporters following a session for the committee he chairs.
“[The rate] cannot be determined by the Finance committee. It must be discussed with the concerned sides in order to relieve people,” he said.
“As a Parliament, we have both the obligation of and the right to ask, and we must receive answers from the concerned sides. We have called Caretaker Finance Minister, Ghazi Wazni, to bring a comprehensive vision to the next session,” he added.
