RIGA - After assessing proposals for amendments to this year’s budget, proposals of both coalition and opposition have been supported, Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis (Unity) said in an interview with the Latvian State Television’s morning show “Labrit, Latvija!” today.

Dombrovskis, however, explained that not all proposals have been approved.

Those approved refer to several schools, social care centers, a few local governments and non-governmental organizations, pointed out Dombrovskis.

The full list of supported proposals and those turned down will be released after the government's session where these matters will be discussed, PM added.

As reported, on Aug. 22, Saeima approved in principle amendments to this year's budget in the first reading. The amendments envisage allocating additional 70 million lats for priority measures this year
