"A discussion was held between the parliament speaker and the head of the judiciary system on the budget bill issue," said the president.

"Our effort is to have the opinions of the parliament and the government come closer on the issue," he said, following his meeting with the parliament speaker and the head of the judiciary.

"It has been decided that the government and the parliament's integration commission would hold more meetings to approve a budget that is in favor of the people that favors economic growth," he said.
