Asunción, Nov 23 (EFE) .- The Paraguayan Senate approved today "with modifications" the General National Budget (PNG) for 2018 after two days of sessions and, although the amount was not specified end of the state budget, the document was remitted to the Chamber of Deputies for a final parliamentary procedure.

The president of the Senate, Fernando Lugo, ruled a fourth intermission in the ordinary session of the day to open an extraordinary one in which to settle and sanction definitively the PNG, which was studied for two days in the Upper House before its approval today.

The session this Thursday served to approve the budget of the Presidency and some secretariats of the Government that had been pending to deal with in the marathon session prior to Wednesday, as the National Anti-Drug Secretariat (Senad).

The amount for the anti-narcotics department was reduced in its expense heading for the construction and purchase of equipment, as reported by the Senate through its website.

The senators also decided today to approve some 46,000 million guaranies (8.1 million dollars) for non-governmental organizations (NGOs), of which 19 were excluded for next year for "detecting irregularities in them," the source said.

In the session prior to Wednesday, the Senate had already considered other modifications in the PNG in various ministries, such as the reduction of 18 million dollars in the Ministry of the Interior, a amount that was going to be destined to a new system of identity cards through the Identifications department.

It also decided to grant a salary increase of 8% to all officials of the Ministry of Public Health, which will be applied from the second half of 2018.

Health workers had requested a 12% increase for the budget line next year, but the senators stayed in a middle ground.

Another of the important notes was to allocate a specific amount to the upper house for the repair of the part of the Congress building that was set on fire and looted during the riots of March 31, in the context of the political conflict over the qualification of the presidential re-election.

amount determined by the senators in this case is 20,000 million guaraníes (about 3.5 million dollars), which will be used to cover the costs of the repair that does not cover the building insurance.

The Senate also approved an increase of 4% for public teaching that will be added to the 12% established by the Executive for the next four years, which It partially meets the demands of the sector, which was manifested in front of the Congress during the study of the PGN.

Throughout yesterday, hundreds of people from various unions met before the Congress building to ask for salary improvements, while the senators debated in the interior of the building the different budgetary provisions.

The budget of 2018 obtained at the beginning of November half sanction in the Chamber of Deputies, which introduced substantial changes in the some portfolios increasing the final budget amount of about 62 millions of dollars in relation to the budget project presented by the Executive.

After the increase in the budget amount in Deputies, the Finance and Budget Commission of the Senate determined a reduction of almost 7 million dollars.
