U.D.P. Organizes Rally in Support of Petrocaribe Loan Motion

In other political news…A special sitting of the House of Representative is slated for next week Tuesday in the Capital. In an ad aired in this newscast, the U.D.P. called on its supporters to join in a rally at the steps of the national assembly. The government will be taking to the House for a second reading the Petrocaribe motion in which House approval is being sought for loans amounting to two hundred and forty million dollars from Venezuela, of which approximately sixty million dollars has already been spent. The Government has come under fire from the opposition which is heading to court because government never sought the approval of the National Assembly to get the loan from Alba Petrocaribe, much less spend the proceeds of that loan. Now the government has already been airing ads saying that the money has been spent on infrastructure projects and that the opposition is saying no to the projects. So it seems that for the first time this year, the government will be rallying its troops against the opposition.
