What happens if the Assembly were to reject the budget ?


Question of the day

Section 151 Subsection states:

4) If the Appropriation Bill in respect of any financial year has not been passed into law by the beginning of that financial year, the President may authorise the withdrawal of money from the Consolidated Fund for the purposes of meeting expenditure necessary to carry on the services of the Government for a period not exceeding four months from the beginning of the financial year.

(5) The withdrawal of funds in accordance with subsection (4) shall not exceed one third of the sums authorised for the relevant services by the Appropriation Act for the immediately preceding financial year.”

Public service must be provided without stop. Hence citizens should not give ridiculous advice to the National Assembly.
