MP Ziad Hawat says budget adopted doesn’t include radical reforms

The member of the Strong Republic bloc MP Ziad Hawat tweeted the following:

“Prime Minister Najib Mikati objected to the budget provisions, as well as the government’s “sponsor,” Hezbollah, who is the genius who set a budget that does not include radical reforms, and lacks a balance between its imports and expenses, and you don’t see any recovery plan?”

“A prejudice in the government’s budget is providing a more than five thousand billion Lebanese pounds advance to the Electricité du Liban to ensure a two-hour daily supply, rather than starting to construct a plan that delivers total electricity with electric current,” MP Hawat added.
