Vote count delay results in lower Afghan national revenue

afghan govt revenueThe House of Representatives expressed concerns over the decline in the national revenue, fearing the government would not be able to pay the salaries of the government employees.

“Economic problems are inevitable if our government does not tackle the national revenue issue and fail to pay salaries of its employees,” said Azim Mohseni, Deputy of the Financial and Budget Commission at the House of Representatives.

Corruption in customs and mismanagement of national revenues were attributed to the decay in Afghanistan’s national revenue.

The Afghan government is currently facing a 21bn AFN decrease in the government development budget and about 10mn AFN decrease in revenue.

In the meantime, Ministry of Finance (MoF) spokesperson Abdul Qader Jelani linked the decrease in revenue to the prolonged election process.
