A high-ranking official in Prime Minister Saad Hariri's government said Tuesday that he had doubts Lebanon's 2018 budget could be passed by the premier's March 5 target, but that it was not impossible. The goal was set so the budget would be agreed before three international donor conferences to support Lebanon take place in the coming months. The Rome II and the Paris Cedre Conference meets are set to be held on March 15 and April 6 respectively, while Lebanon's first parliamentary elections in nine years are set for May 6 . Among the items covered Tuesday were the budgets of the presidency, Parliament and Cabinet, including affiliated departments.
