Budget for 2015 passes

Ruling party lawmakers at the National Assembly yesterday approved a $3.86 billion national budget for 2015 despite unanswered questions posed by the opposition.

Sixty-five of 109 lawmakers present voted for the bill, which allocated 10.8 per cent more money than this year.

The government prioritised 10 ministries for extra financing, including education, health and women’s affairs.

But Cambodia National Rescue Party deputy leader Kem Sokha, who left the session before the vote, said his party was opposed to the law.
