Sri lanka News – Sri Lanka’s parliament will debate an interim budget, to be presented by President Ranil Wickremesinghe on Tuesday August 30, from Tuesday to Friday that week, a government MP said.
Ruling Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) general secretary MP Sagara Kariyawasam told reporters on Wednesday August 24 that a vote on the interim budget will be taken in parliament next Friday September 02.
The MP said the interim budget will likely focus on economic recovery while also providing relief to the public as much as possible.
Sri Lanka is going through its worst economic crisis since independence and high inflation have hit the public hard.
“Note that this is only an interim budget. The budget proper for 2023 will be presented in November,” said Kariyawasam. (Colombo/Aug24/2022)
