What’s the Position of Said Musa and Valerie Woods on Super Referendum Bill?

So will the P.U.P. attempt to block the passing of the bill on Friday? And what about Said Musa who was absent for today’s meeting and Senator Valerie Woods who, like Musa, is a proponent of the I.C.J.  Briceño says that the party’s consensus today was to not support the bill as it is.

 

Hipolito Novelo

“Can the public expect the P.U.P. as a party to not support this bill in the House tomorrow and in the Senate on Monday?”

 

John Briceño, Leader, People’s United Party

“The general consensus this afternoon that we have from all our parliamentarians, they believe that as it is right now, as it stands right now it would be very difficult for us to support it tomorrow. Maybe the Prime Minister may decide to just table it and then go through its process by having a house committee meeting and have people to come in and give suggestions and hopefully some amendments that would address some concerns that we may have. If they do that then obviously then we would have more time to discuss. We believe that at this time, the way it is, it would be very difficult for us to support tomorrow.”

“…including Said Musa and Valeria Woods, who are both in favor of a YES vote?”

 

John Briceño

“Well Senator Woods was here this afternoon and I said is there was a consensus. The former prime minister was at court so he could not attend but I have every confidence that he will support the party’s position when it comes to the actual bill that is going to be table tomorrow.”

 

Friday’s house meeting will be broadcast live on this station.
