Budgeting revisited

  • If this is a national budget, why should only the subject minister present it? Shouldn›t the key portfolios present their budgets/strategic initiatives, which will then be consolidated by the Finance Ministry?
  • Wouldn’t it be great if for every item on the budget there was a simple justification that a layman understood? After all it’s the public’s effort that is quantified as budgets!
