Parliament of FYR Macedonia approved the changes in the 2014 budget, with the votes of the majority.

Minister of Finance, Zoran Stavrevski declared that the changes have been made in order to harmonize the dynamic of the expenses in the part of infrastructural projects.

“There’s only one small correction which relates to the 2% of the budget, in order to effectively realize the planned project and the projects that must be carried out in 2014”, said Stavrevski.

A part of the money will go for the continuation of the “Corridor 10” and the monthly salaries and pensions. According to the government projection, expenses will be cut by 10 million Euros for each ministry.

No opposition MPs was present in today’s session, including the Albanian Democratic Party (PDSH), who boycotted parliament following the physical clash with BDI (Democratic Union for Integration) MPs a few days ago in parliament. /ibna/
