Afghan-parliament-violence1Wolesi Jirga or House of Representatives on Monday rejected the recommended budget for fiscal year 1395 with vast majority of votes.

Only eight green cards were raised in favor of the budget during today’s session and rest of the lawmakers raised red cards to disapprove the budget.

The main reason behind the rejection was reportedly the imbalance of funds allocation.

Abdul Rawouf Ibrahimi, speaker of the house said that all provinces were not considered equally in the budget.

“Looking at this and some other issues with the draft, the house rejects this budget,” Ibrahimi added.

The budget of AFG461 billion for the fiscal year 1395 was reportedly approved by Meshrano Jirga or Upper House of the Parliament.
