Debate in Parliament started at about 3pm and went on for more than 5 hours.
The government used its numerical strength to defeat a motion by Opposition Leader Don Polye calling for a one week adjournment.
They voted 84 against and 12 for.
But the government’s intention was to have the budget handed down and passed the same day.
The 2016 budget is set at K14.2 billion.
That is a deficit of K2 billion.
The supplementary budget was also passed.
