President Donald Ramotar feels that any attempt to cut the budget would be an act of vindictiveness – 11th Apr 2013
As the opposition parties continue to scrutinize the 2013 National Budget, Guyana’s Head of State President Donald Ramotar feels that the opposition has no grounds to cut the budget, in fact, the President believes it is just down to vindictiveness.
The President was speaking to this Newscast outside of Freedom House today.
Both the APNU and AFC said that they intend to cut the extravagant spending of the administration and are asking for proper accountability before the monies were to be approved.
The President is of the view that the speakers on his side of the House have done well in the budget debates. The President did not give away much on the course of action his administration will take if the budget was to be amended.
He said any cut to the budget would slow down the pace of development anticipated by his Government.
The APNU and the AFC have objected to subsidies proposed for the Guyana Sugar Corporation, Guyana Power and Light company, GINA and NCN. The opposition has been calling for more effective management and accountability from the GUYSUCO and GPL boards.
