Poll asks tough question about early election

This past Tuesday, Prime Minister Dean Barrow, officially announced that there will be early general elections, coinciding with the municipals on March seventh. But after weeks of denying the rampant speculation about early elections, what changed his mind? We put one possible reason to our viewers in the question of the week and asked: Is the Prime Minister calling early General Elections because the economy will get worse? Sixty-eight percent of the persons who responded on our e-poll said yes and thirty-two percent voted no. One viewer who commented on our blog said that; “The P M, is devoid of ideas on how to address the bad economic situation of our country and so he is calling this election without presenting a budget because he will have to make some tough choices such as raising taxes and mass retrenchment”
