Minister of Finance Ibrahimaj: 2020 budget foresees 2.5 billion ALL for the compensation of former owners

Only 2.5 billion ALL, out of 3 billion ALL planned in the budget, is foreseen to be distributed by the end of the year for the compensation of the former owners, writes ATA. The Minister of Finance and Economy, Delina Ibrahimaj said during the article-by-article discussion of the draft budget in the Parliamentary Committee on Economy and Finance that the distribution of this fund is difficult to absorb.

The Minister said that for this reason the fund foreseen in the draft budget of 2022 will be reduced by ALL 500 million, going to ALL 4.5 billion from the planned ALL 5 billion.

"The reason why we decided to touch this fund, despite our willingness to compensate and make the payments, is difficult to absorb. It will be difficult for the fund of 5 billion ALL to be disbursed in full ", declared the minister.

Meanwhile, the opposition demanded that the fund for compensation of former owners be increased and not reduced.

The proposal of the Ministry of Finance and Economy is reviewed today in the Committee of Economy and Finance, which is also the responsible committee, to be voted on Thursday in the plenary session for the approval of article by article of the draft budget for 2022.
