The ~ Worst budget presented in the history of the country. ~
PHILIPSBURG: — Ministers representing Government presented their budget on Monday morning. The poorly prepared budget which was presented created more questions than answers.
MP Luc Mercelina made no mistake when he highlighted the deficit which stands at NAF 62.7M while the budget takes 51.2% of the budget for personnel costs. MP Mercelina said that St. Maarten is not as rich, and it is not a social state like that of Holland. He lamented that St. Maarten doesn’t have a strong social system to back it
