The People's Partnership Government will be judged on the level of corruption.

So said former government minister Jack Warner, speaking to reporters minutes before going into the Parliament building at the Waterfront Complex, Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain where the 2014-2015 budget was about to be delivered by Finance Minister Larry Howai.

Warner said he expected to see more projects coming out of the budget.

"More projects in this budget means more corruption. They will be judged on Reshmi, E-mailgate, Prisongate, nepotism and any other thing you could find."

Warner is hoping that this will be the last budget to be delivered by the People's Partnership government.

"I could not be bothered and I could not care less. If they call the budget today and they demit office next week, then I will be happy."

Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Orville London also spoke to members of the media before entering the Parliament.

He said he was sure the THA was not going to get all it had asked for but hoped that Tobago got treated with respect.
