Edelstein to Kahlon: Budget must stick to proper parliamentary procedure

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon were unable to come to an agreement as to how to shorten the Economic Arrangements Bill, which they discussed at a meeting in the Knesset Sunday.

Edelstein said his and Kahlon’s joint “goal is to bring the budget and the EAB [to a vote] on the planned days, without harming the Knesset’s ability to adhere to proper parliamentary procedure and while protecting the House’s dignity.”

The budget and EAB, which is passed in tandem with the budget each year and outlines the basic economic policies that are meant to accompany it, are expected to be submitted to the Knesset next Sunday and brought to a first vote the following Wednesday. The budget and EAB are scheduled to go to a final vote on November 20.
