According to Tabaku one of the deficiencies of this draft-budget, approved in principle by this committee only with majority's votes, is the fact that no salaries increase is foreseen.

"2018 draft-budget foresees no salaries increase on view of the fact that salaries fund goes from ALL 5.5 Billion to ALL 1 Billion. No pensions increase is also foreseen because the fund for this category of people goes from ALL 2.5 Billion to ALL 1.8 Billion," stated Tabaku.
