The ministry wrote that it will be of vital importance to continue budgetary consolidation in upcoming years and push the deficit under 3 percent in 2013.

"The currently submitted public administration budget doesn't contain appropriate measures to reduce the deficit in 2013 under 3 percent of GDP. Therefore, it is necessary to have the next government draft another set of measures to that end," states the document, as quoted by TASR.
