It is not. They just decided to remove what the state spends on electricity from the budget, and thus the deficit decreased, in order to appeal to the international community. Many economists spoke on the subject.First, there is a budget now which wasn't the case before.
Third, The deficit in the budget is 30% less than what it was when it was presented to the government a month ago.
It is less than last year's budget deficit.
When they finished the 2017 budget they said those reparations would happen in the 2018 budget. Instead, in this year's budget they "canceled" fines from people who didn't pay their taxes, which overall resulted in the state losing millions of dollars in revenue.Furthermore, many issues were identified to reduce it further in the next years (rents, UNDP program costs, fake associations that take money from the governments etc.)
I can't excuse any wrongdoings just because some progress is being done.
Trust me, if any of the so-called "moujtama3 madaneh" candidates make it to the parliament, they will be on the side of transparency and change, and if FPM is truthfully fighting this battle, they will be on their side.Now the questions to ask: are the "moujtama3 madaneh" able to do better than FPM with a couple of MPs? do they have concrete plans on HOW to overcome the obstacles that compromised FPM's productivity? and who ends up as biggest winner if they manage to weaken FPM while coming themselves super weak out of the battle?
