MEHWAR: Wolesi Jirga Likely to Reject MoF's Draft Budget

Ministry of Finance (MoF) on Monday called on MPs to approve the 2017 draft budget by the deadline, which is in a week, but there are indications that the lawmakers will reject it.

However, a document seen by TOLOnews shows that more than $11 million USD has been allocated in the draft budget for upgrades to the presidential palace, including the construction of a special presidential kitchen, the painting of the presidential palace, the renovation of roads within the presidential palace compound and the renovation of Gul Khana and Del Kusha palaces.
