Upper chamber adopts 2002 finance bill
Morocco, Politics, 12/15/2001
The chamber of advisors (upper parliamentary chamber) adopted on Friday by 53 votes against 24 the 2002 FY finance bill.
Parliamentary groups of the majority said the text comprises several provisions that would help master macro-economic balances and reduce drought effects, despite internal and external constraints. They also argue several positive elements are contained in the state general budget, mainly regarding the fight against unhealthy housing, improving the social situation of retired persons, compulsory health coverage, tourism promotion and activating the investment charter.
Meanwhile, parliamentary groups belonging to the opposition said it is not different from previous ones, and argued that the government which has been in power for 3 years now did not succeed in settling the economic and social crisis.
The finance bill was adopted last month by the house of representatives (lower chamber). (MAP)SH
