Opposition meets with Council of Churches on Senate inquiry

John Briceno

Leader of the Opposition John Briceño and Senator Eamon Courtenay met with Reverend Roosevelt Papouloute and Bishop Phillip Wright this morning, ahead of the churches’ meeting with the Prime Minister.  The meeting was to discuss the issue of a Senate Select Committee and to garner support from the religious community.  Briceño and Courtenay are both hopeful that they will be able to persuade the Council of Churches into seeing the issue of an immigration inquiry from their perspective.


John Briceño, P.U.P. Leader

“It is important for us to speak with the social partners about the parties position, our senators made a motion to have a senate investigation over the auditor general’s report. It is important for our usual partners to understand what are our views and why we believe that the senate investigation is the way to go. We are very hopeful they have listens to our proposal and why we believe we should go the way of the senate and they have taken into consideration what we have told them and they are now meeting with their wider council and we are hopeful that they would realize that the best way to go is to have a senate investigation.”

    Smh!! You don’t get it. You don’t need them. No one has any faith in them. Go through the motions if you have to. Those people see the world in red and black. They have simply retreated to their DEFAULT SETTING.
