Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar will respond to the government’s 2021 fiscal package in the Parliament at 10am today.  

Persad Bissessar shared initial thoughts on Monday immediately following the presentation; she accused Finance Minister, Colm Imbert of lying and being untrustworthy.  

She condemned most of the initiatives in the Budget, including the government’s implementation of the Property Tax and sale of National Petroleum gas stations. She further called on them to halt their plan to construct a new ANR International Airport terminal and re-route that money into buying more laptops for school children. 

LoopTT will be bringing live updates of the Opposition Leader’s rebuttal through our Live Blog as she takes the floor.
