Finance Minister Colm Imbert says prime minister Dr Keith Rowley had a right to give background information on the economy during his two-part address to the nation earlier this week.
The prime minister was criticised for spending too much time talking about previous years as opposed to the government's plans for the country going forward.
Speaking on the Morning Brew, Minister Imbert says the last three years have been difficult.
However, he was asked whether the prime minister's address was the launch of the PNM's election campaign.
Finance Minister Colm Imbert says he hopes misinformation about the Galleons Passage will finally be put to rest.
Today Minister Imbert laid all documents in the Parliament related to the acquisition of the vessel.
It comes just days after the Opposition moved a motion demanding all the information.
