MPs Approve New Fiscal Year’s Budget

MPs in Wolesi Jirga (Lower House of Parliament) on Wednesday approved the new fiscal year's (1397 solar year) budget. 

This comes just days before MPs break for their winter recess of 45 days. 

A month ago, the MPs rejected the budget, arguing that the “complicated” document showed that the allocated amount was less than that of the current year.

The lawmakers also argued that the budget was not balanced and there were many complexities in the document.

The total value of 1397 national budget is AFN 377.011 billion, comprising of AFN 266.133 billion ordinary budget and AFN 110.878 billion development budget. 

At least 188 billion AFs of next year’s budget will be provided from international aid and 183 billion AFs will be from the national revenues, according to government officials.
