Entornointeligente.com / The Opposition and the media took some heat on Saturday, as Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley blasted both for keeping the argument over tax exemptions for ministers’ vehicles alive.
Rowley defended his ministers’ right to purchase vehicles using such exemptions, saying it was part of the agreed terms and conditions of their job arrangements.
In fact, the Prime Minister said he too had used the facility to purchase a new vehicle.
Rowley gave the response during the weekly COVID-19 update, as he addressed the recent controversy in which Energy Minister Stuart Young and Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh were criticised for purchasing luxury vehicles using the exemptions.
