Young: PM’s presentation NOT a paid political broadcast


    Communications Minister Stuart Young is surprised by all the interest in the Prime Minister’s recent two part presentation on the state of the nation.

    During today’s post-cabinet briefing, he was asked about the Opposition’s quest to have the event debated in the Parliament.


    Mr Young also confirmed that mandatory free airtime was used for the presentation,.


    And he denied allegations that it was a paid political broadcast.


    Meanwhile during an interview on CNC3 this morning, Finance Minister Colm Imbert admitted that the PM’s presentation held political significance.


    He then went on to add what he says is “context” for his answer.


    Mr Imbert also stated that the event was not an “Address to the Nation”, but rather, a presentation.
