The discussions lasted 8 hours between FSD chaired by the Honourable Yves Brahima Koné and the new Minister in charge of Budget , Mr. Cissé Abdourahmane was carrying this bill on the state budget for the year 2014.
First, it is the law of regulation that was adopted unanimously after 3 hours of questions and answers between the Government Commissioner and MPs. This law, which is the final stage of the budget and accounting process , which allows Parliament to assess the government through the achievements action has been extensively explained in detail by the Minister.
In his presentation, the Government Commissioner has largely informed the members of the execution of the budget law covering state budget resources and expenditure and also indicated the final stop level account management .
The majority of the parliamentary groups wanted to know why the State has made use of treasury advances to meet certain expenses. ” The government intends to make investments , which is a 3% budget balance ,” said the minister. On advances treasuries , he says , it is a method used to make expenditures without having to go through the normal channels . “The government is doing in order to implement expenditure that must be on time ,” said the Government Commissioner .
He even recalled that in 2012 , wages were paid in advance and it was not until 2013 that the problem was resolved never to have recourse to advances treasuries . However, the budget minister said that no country can not function without recourse to advances treasuries : “We must be able to tag the level of advances ,” he has said before promising that all procedures State will be reviewed to be the most effective.
Moreover , the Minister Cissé Abdourahmane pointed out to members that the government is already well into its willingness to act in a timely manner , especially vis- à-vis the payment of the state debt to suppliers : “The state has been working to pay within 90 days providers . 34 billion has been paid and $ 51 billion will be paid before the end of the year for the discharge of this debt , “promised the Government Commissioner .
If the adoption of the regulation law has not been a major obstacle , this was not the case when referring to examine the 2014 budget. Return to the Chamber after the lunch break , members will submit the government commissioner to a long series of questions on the draft budget law. 5:00 in , they will be very fussy about the allocation of the budget of 4 248 257 741 401 CFA francs. All sectors are reviewed by members.
Including allocations made to the management committees of schools ( SMCs ), the budget allocated to national public bodies , institutions and especially the National Assembly with the status of members. ” A committee chaired by the Prime Minister with members of the National Assembly will be implemented within a short time in order to find a definitive solution to the question of the statutes, the issue of annuity and analyze what will made in the budget of the National Assembly , “responded the budget minister who said he was very sensitive to this concern that members remain very attached . The response of the Government Commissioner on all other concerns will have the support of the majority of members. Which will lead to the consideration of the legal system .
However, at this stage , Article 12 will give rise to a blocking born of resistance members . This Article 12 , which authorizes the President of the Republic to take orders by over 2014 measures normally fall within the scope of the law. (..) As formulated , this article does not have the support of the majority of parliamentarians. They felt that given the nature of this article should not be included in the Finance Act . It must be removed and must be a request from the President of the Republic.
A one-hour break was observed after which this article, although it has not been removed , will experience a new formulation which circumscribes the period and specific areas of the order.
The Finance Bill will not be passed unanimously , but the majority of the Committee on Economic and Financial Affairs . Next Thursday , it will be submitted to the plenary for possible adoption by all members .
