1391 Budget Plan Should be More in Favor of Higher Education, urges Afghan Parliament

Many Parliamentary members recommended reducing the budget allocated for the president office but rather increasing the budget allocated for higher education.

Today’s plenary meeting discussed the draft of law on structure and authorization of judicial organ and the 1391 budget plan issue; however, it resulted in no conclusion due to incomplete forum.

Mohammad Abdah, a member of Law Enforcement Commission, said that the draft of law on structure and authorization of judicial organ is composed of 9 chapters and 110 articles. The Parliamentary members in the Joint Commission discussed the controversial issues of the draft and corrected its shortcomings.

However, the draft has not been approved yet and is postponed to Monday’s meeting.

Meanwhile, Hafiz Mansoor, member of the Parliament, expressed his concerns about the low capacity of the Ministry of Higher Education and said that if the capacity of the ministry is not enhances, thousands of youths will be jobless every year.

He emphasized on cutting down the budget for the president office and adding more to the budget for higher education.

Urfanullah Urfan, another member of the Parliament, also urged to avoid unnecessary expenditure of the budget.  He called on the Ministry of Finance to avoid its unnecessary expenditure, and in order to avoid unemployment crisis, it should add to the budget for Ministry of Education and Ministry of Higher Education.

According to the sources, in the current budget proposal for 1391, USD 78 million has been allotted for president office. The amount exceeds the budget for several ministries.

Parliament members rejected the proposal, referring to it as “unfair”.
