The Serbian parliament adopted an amended 2020 budget on Thursday which officials said includes all capital investments and support for the health care system.
Under the amended budget, revenues will total 1,291.4 billion Dinars (1 Euro – 118 Dinars) and expenditures of 1,774.4 billion. The budget deficit will stand at 483 billion Dinars or 8.75 percent with a negative growth rate of one percent.
The new budget was adopted with a vote of 207 to four and takes effect with the publication of the law on the budget in the Official Gazette.
A group of people gathered outside the Parliament building during the session protesting against the draft of the Law on Protection Against Contagious Diseases, also on the agenda of Thursday’s session.
They say that wearing masks and limits on gathering violated their Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms and rights.
