Speaker of the House of Representatives (HoR) Aqeelah Saleh received Sunday the amended general budget proposed by the Government of National Unity (GNU) after it was turned down in a previous session last month.

In his office in Al-Qubbah town east of the country, Saleh received a delegation of the GNU ministers, which included ministers of interior, Foreign Affairs, and minister of Planning, besides Chairman of the Board of Directors of the General electricity company.

The MPs voted in a session two weeks ago to return the budget bill to the government for amendment per the recommendations of the HoR, saying it was "a large sum" given the critical and unstable conditions in the country.
