A total of 17.3 billion South Sudan Pounds with focus mainly on agriculture, physical infrastructure, education and health among key sectors was then presented as the annual budget.
The Information Committee member Hon. Yoane Bonju told Gurtong that parliament will pass the budget first before it goes for recess in September as scheduled.
Last month South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir restructured his entire cabinet reducing it from 29 ministries to 21 with others being merged after the budget had already been presented to the House.
Tisa said the budget will have to be restructured according to the current cabinet; twenty one ministries and the other government agencies.
