On Tuesday, July 17 Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit presented the 2012-2013 national budget during the formal opening of parliament.
The $437.6 million budget was criticized by some who said it lacked foresight while others said it was a well thought out budget reflecting tough economic times.
Dominica News Online sought the opinions of readers in a new poll.
The poll asked whether the budget was a progressive job generating fiscal package and is it one that will move the country forward.
612 readers participated in the poll.
374, that is 61 percent, thought the budget was not a progressive job generating fiscal package and will not move the country forward.
175 readers or 29 percent voted yes while 63 voted “Don’t know.”
DNO polls are not scientific.
