The caretaker cabinet is proposing, to the National Assembly, an extension of the budget 2022 extension law, until a new state budget for the current year is adopted, the government press service has announced.

The bill proposed will provide stability and will allow for the financing of the systems, enabling them to perform their social functions until a budget 2023 is adopted, the government press service adds. According to the proposal, the changes guarantee the payment of allowances and benefits and other expenses connected with security, and the life and health of citizens. Additional financing is provided for with regard to investments, including as part of the national recovery and resilience plan because of the inflation processes.

At this time budget 2022 has been extended until 10 June this year. It is unlikely that the MPs will be able to adopt a budget for 2023 by that date, which means that after 10 June the state will not be able to make any payments.
