After a delay of almost two months, the Jerusalem Municipality has finally presented its budget for 2016. It is not yet the end of this long and winding road, however. The budget still has to be presented to the city council and be approved by it.

Considering that the opposition on the council is represented by only two members (Laura Wharton of Meretz and Itai Gutler of the Zionist Union), the chances that the budget will not be approved are slim.
