TAWDE KHABARE: MPs Reject Budget Plan
The Afghan parliament on Wednesday rejected the next fiscal year's budget, citing "serious problems."
The exclusion of 1,131 provincial projects, the allocation of Afs13 billion ($166 million) for the emergency code (an emergency budgetary unit) and the allocation of Afs2 billion ($25.5 million) to the government's Code 91 and 92--also emergency funds--were reasons for concern raised by lawmakers.
