AFC ditches 2014 Budget Presentation


parliament[] – The Alliance For Change (AFC) has walked out of the 2014 Budget presentation by Finance Minister Dr. Ashni Singh in the National Assembly on Monday, March 24.

According to the AFC, the Party is registering “its protest against the violation of our constitution by this government in not holding meaningful consultation on the budget, whilst it had time to do so.”

The Party further noted, “Judged from the rave and rants of his previous speeches, the AFC has no reason to believe that Minister Singh would make a sober presentation this year. High on a propaganda blitz against the Opposition, he would not resist the blame – game and the sojourn into the past, to buttress evident failures.”

The AFC also explained that the 2014 budget is overshadowed by the ruling of the Chief Justice that the National Assembly may approve or not approve the estimates of the expenditure.
