The school year was delayed by weeks because the Education Ministry was late assigning teachers to schools; the Finance Minister Antonio Bagao Felix publicly disagreed with Santana Lopes over tax cuts; and the government locked horns with the media for allegedly trying to muzzle its critics at newspapers and TV networks.
