Members of the Lower House of Parliament as well as those of the government concerned are participating this Tuesday, July 05, 2022, in the plenary devoted to the budget orientation debate.
The June parliamentary session, which opened on June 7, is starting with its most intensive phase. After the examination and adoption of at least five bills, the Deputies will as of Tuesday, July 05, 2022, be working on the budget orientation debates. This is to prepare the finance bill for the 2023 financial year. These exchanges are taking place during the current plenary session at the provisional hemicycle of the Yaounde conference center.
During the work, participants will examine the medium-term budget programming document covering the period 2023-2025. The 130-page document sets a 03-year budget orientation framework.
However, while the plenary starts at 10.30 a.m., it is also at this time that the deputies discover the document, which is not to the taste of some.
“Cameroon is adrift! (…) How can the National Assembly agree to organize on July 05, 2022, at 10:30 a.m., a 3-year budget orientation debate by discovering the 130-page documents at 10:30 a.m.?” asks honorable Cabral Libii, denouncing the violation of article 11 of the law of July 11, 2018, which provides that the documents must reach the Assembly on July 1.
