LEADER of Opposition Sitiveni Rabuka says they want the 2019/ 2020 National Budget to address the needs of the underprivileged, poor and to improve the agriculture and other productive sectors

He has called on the Government to immediately stop its expansionary approach and should try to consolidate the budget to ensure that the fiscal space is available to cushion any impact of the lurking challenges.

He made this comments ahead of the announcement of the 2019/2020 Budget schedule for tomorrow.

During the party’s budget press conference today, Mr Rabuka said the budget would impact everyone in a small and some in a big way.

“We are not here to provide you with politic rhetoric on the budget,” he said.
