55. If the Comptroller of Finance refuses to certify that a warrant may be issued, the person who has made the application for payment may object to such refusal before the Conseil du trésor which, upon a report on the case prepared by the Comptroller of Finance, shall decide upon the objection and may, at its discretion, sustain it or order the issue of the warrant.
If the Conseil du trésor so orders the issue of a warrant, the secretary of the Conseil must prepare a statement of the report of the Comptroller of Finance, of the decision of the Conseil du trésor and of any expenditure incurred accordingly. He shall deliver such statement to the Minister who shall submit it to the National Assembly not later than the third day during which it sits after the signing of the warrant issued upon the order of the Conseil du trésor.
