President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa's First Budget Expected Only After Next Parliamentary Election

November 28, 2019

President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa's first budget will be presented to Parliament after the next Parliamentary election, top government sources said.

The previous government has already passed a suplementary estimate for the first four months of next year.

A senior government spokesman said a supplementary estimate would be presented to the House if an immediate requirement for money cropped up. However, the current government is still short of a working majority in Parliament.

The spokesman said the SLPP was certain about its victory at the next Parliamentary election.
