    An amendment to the constitution needed for the 2006 budget was passed by Parliament on Saturday. Debate on the changes to the constitution had been stalled due to refusal by members of the main opposition Republican People's Party, however, an agreement was reached by Deputy Prime Minister Abdullah Gül and Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Deniz Baykal on Friday. A total of 433 deputies approved the change.

    According to the changes, deputies are requested to voice their opinions and to submit suggested changes on the budget during the debates on the budgetary debates. The budgets of individual departments will just be read out and voted on.

    CHP told the AKP that they would support the necessary change only if the amendment that decriminalized the use of phony documentation for exports was removed from the package. Some claimed that the amendment was to provide an amnesty to Finance Minister Kemal Unakıtan.
