YEREVAN. – Initially, 1 billion 145 million drams were allocated from the state budget in 2019 for the needs of the President's Office. Minister of Finance Atom Janjughazyan stated this during Tuesday’s debates on the 2019 state budget performance report, at the joint sitting of the standing committees of the National Assembly (NA) of Armenia.

But, according to him, adjustments were made during the year, and that amount increased by 350 million drams. But in the end, the President's Office received 248 million drams—or 15 percent—less in 2019 than in 2018. "In fact, 1 billion 452 million drams, or 96% of the adjusted indicator, were used," the minister said.

As per Janjughazyan, about 5 billion 254 million drams were allocated from the state budget in 2019 for the needs of the NA of Armenia. During the year, this figure was also adjusted and increased to 6 billion 231 million drams. But in fact, 5 billion 821 million drams, or 93.4% of the total amount, were spent. The Minister of Finance noted that 29% more money was provided to the parliament in the year past than in 2018.
