Haider said, that "the government's estimate of the price of a barrel of oil in the budget in 2016 to 40 dollars instead of 45, with the amount of export estimate by three million barrels a day, so that oil revenues become a $ 43.8 billion difference of 18 trillion dinars (ie 27%) for number theory in draft law. "
He added that "the security and defense sector identified a higher proportion of the budget and then come to the oil sector and beyond of Education and Health and education, and this is what raises questions that the agricultural sector and tourism industries non-oil has not allocated in line with the reform plan the budget."
