Senator Isaac Baptiste is of the view that the Roosevelt Skerrit Administration has made the people of Dominic poorer, through their mismanagement of funds.
He argues that the Government has spent more than half of the economic citizenship funds on frivolous social programs such as the NEP and “red clinic”, under the guise of ‘generosity’.
Meanwhile, Attorney Anthony Astaphan argues that Dominica has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in the OECS. He questions how has the current administration made the people poorer. Astaphan claims that Dominica had the highest rates of poverty in 1998, before the Labour Party administration came to office.
