The National Assembly on Thursday approved the draft state budget of Armenia for 2022.

A total of 65 MPs voted in favor of this draft, 19—against, and one lawmaker abstained.

The MPs of the opposition "Armenia" and "With Honor" Factions voted against the draft state budget.

Earlier, the opposition had disapproved of next year's draft state budget, noting that it does not envisage an increase in pensions and benefits despite the current post-crisis situation, which is inadmissible.
