Following a request for a meeting, GECOM Chair, Justice (ret’d) Claudette Singh yesterday said she had advised the opposition APNU+AFC that they should engage with the entire commission rather than have a caucus with her alone.
Singh made the disclosure in a statement following a press release yesterday by the three APNU+AFC-appointed GECOM Commissioners which said that they had withdrawn from a meeting of the Commission yesterday over the Chair’s refusal to meet APNU+AFC.
The three commissioners, Vincent Alexander, Charles Corbin and Desmond Trotman said in the release “The APNU-AFC is a major stakeholder and as such we consider it discourteous, at least, for her (Singh) not to have entertained their presence. The current environment in the Commission is not (conducive) for a briefing of the sort sought”, the three said.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
