Speaking to Express FM, MP and rapporteur of the Finance Committee at the House of People’s Representatives Fayçal Derbel explained that the 2021 Finance Bill contains a budget deficit of 11 billion dinars.
“If we do not find the solutions to ensure this sum, we may be unable to pay our debts and certain expenses,” he warned. In this sense, he called on the State to rationalize certain expenses, but above all to opt for tax reconciliation with certain companies.
Mr Derbel also proposed carrying out security raids targeting smugglers and changing the national currency.
The MP also proposed to change the national currency in order to reduce the scope of the economic crisis that the country is experiencing at the moment.
