Former Finance Minister, Karen Nunez Tesheira says she is not in agreement with the recent statement by PSA President, Watson Duke that the budget adjustments made are meant to benefit only the upper echelon of society.
In an interview with News Power Now this morning, Mrs. Tesheira said the PNM has always defended the poor and has introduced a number of technical and social programmes aimed at helping those in need.
She said difficult decisions must be made at this time.
Mrs. Nunez Tesheira also noted that based on what she understands from statements made by the Finance Minister, programmes such as GATE will be rationalized.
