U.D.P. Ministers Meet With PM Barrow after Cabinet

On Tuesday’s newscast we told you about reports of a ruckus in Cabinet…reports later denied by all the Ministers with whom we came into contact. But while nobody will outrightly admit it, there is a chasm between the Saldivar camp, a majority of Cabinet and the Faber camp. News Five has been able to confirm that indeed there are demands being made of the Prime Minister, though reliable information is that he’s having none of it. So when were these demands ventilated? Well it happened at a meeting following Cabinet, after Faber had left with Michael Finnegan.

“There are some of the members who…the Cabinet adjourned and there were some members who wanted to have a meeting with the PM. I think that happened and you know once the Cabinet adjourns we have lunch and some people decide to stay for lunch and some don’t. It’s not abnormal for us to leave from out of the Cabinet Room at different times. I don’t know if there was that meeting afterwards. I left…Minister Finnegan and I left together.”

 

Reliable sources claim that the Ministers who met with Prime Minister Dean Barrow are asking that a decision to appoint Doug Singh as Chairman of the Elections and Boundaries Commission be rescinded; that the PM’s C.E.O. Audrey Wallace not be allowed to sit during Cabinet meetings; and that mouthpiece Juliet Thimbriel be put out to political pasture, so to speak. As we told you earlier, indications are that the Prime Minister isn’t entertaining requests at this time.
