Budget readjustment adopted without opposition votes.
Although the budget readjustment does not affect in any way the healthcare budget, the budgets of the Ministry of Health and the Health Insurance Fund were debated as well. According to the opposition, they are unsustainable and about to collapse.
"The Health Fund and the Ministry of Health allocate much more funds for the system and the citizens than SDSM did when they were in office," Ilija Dimovski from VMRO-DPMNE replied.
Under the budget readjustment, the Pension and Disability Insurance Fund was given another 17 million euros, the Ministry of Education was given more money to be used for the equipment of the new laboratories, while the overall allocation for salaries in state institutions remained the same despite the corrected allocations for separate institutions.
Upon passing the budget readjustment, the Parliament also passed the law on guarantees for the Republic of Macedonia in meeting the responsibilities based on the loan contract for the project "Modernization of Block 1 in TEC Bitola" to be signed between Deutsche Bank and the power-producing company AD ELEM.
