The opposition parties have submitted over 3,000 amendments to the state budget law and to the social security insurance law for this year, which are both set to be debated in the special commissions of the Parliament today. Both the Social Democratic Party (PSD) and the Liberal Party (PNL) have said they will not vote the budget in its proposed form. The passing of the budget in the Parliament is key to unlocking some more of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) money, according to the Government. So far, discussions with the IMF for the next installments in the stand-by agreement have been halted end of last year due to political instability. The submitted form of the budget includes a 1.3 percent economic growth for this year.
