Opposition members of the new national party have made it clear that they are not in support of several recent decisions made by the ruling national democratic congress administration.

Members of the New National Party have expressed their concerns about a number of decisions made by the ruling government.

Their concern was expressed during a virtual press conference on Thursday.

Senator Norland Cox says the NNP administration placed a cap on gas and implemented the 25% reduction in non-fuel charge on GRENLEC to better assist the Grenadian people. He said with the removal of these caps, Grenadians should be prepared for a hard time ahead.

In his assessment, he does not see the cap on freight prices having a positive impact on the pockets of consumers within six months. He said it is not enough time to start to see the change in the prices of goods.

MEANWHILE

Parliamentary representative for St Mark Dr. Clarice Modeste Curwen cleared the air on statements made by Prime Minister Dickon Mitchell last Tuesday on the $2000,00 dollar increase on ministers traveling allowance.

The NDC leader gave his reasons behind no longer allowing ministers to obtain gas from the central police station.

Senator Modeste-Curwen explained that there were proper protocols in place to continue for the ministers when it came to receiving gas, and as such, the prime minister’s statement was not factual.
