The cabinet convenes on Thursday afternoon at the Grand Serail, under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Saad Hariri.

 

Following the session, Finance Minister Ali Hassan Khalil said that he expects that they need only one more session to pass the remaining ministries’ budgets, adding that the ministries’ expenses are reduced.

 

In turn, Information Minister Jamal al-Jarrah said that “the ministries agreed on necessary reductions of the budgets of some ministries in order to reduce the expenses and send positive signs in terms of reform measures.”

 

The ministries that were subject to a reduction in their budgets are the ministries of finance, interior, justice health, labor, telecommunications, tourism, economy and displaced.

 

The meeting of the ministerial committee on electricity has been postponed until Friday on 1:00 pm, with a cabinet session set for Friday at 4:00 pm.
