PM Briceño Comments on Shyne’s Legitimacy as a Voter in Mesop

Prime Minister John Briceño

Last night, we told you about the attempt made in the lower courts by former P.U.P. standard bearer Dorla Vaughn and Gary Ayuso to challenge Shyne Barrow’s legitimacy as a voter in Mesopotamia.  As we reported, that challenge was unsuccessful. Today, Prime Minister Briceño told reporters that he had nothing to do with the challenge. He said, however, that through the challenge, a message was sent to the entire country about the opposition leader.


Prime Minister John Briceño

“I don’t know I had nothing to do with it and I just read the news, but I think if you want to help hold standards, let us start with us the leaders. I think it is disgraceful for the Leader of the Opposition to find a safe house in the Mesopotamia area to register himself when we know that he lives in the Caribbean Shores area, all of you know that. He has a flag where he lives and I just can’t understand that he opens himself to such criticism and the point is, I remember a person that just loves to go to court and I would not mention names, he said you know what Prime Minister sometimes you go to court not to win but to make a point. And so we wanted to make a point for the entire country to understand the moral standards of the leader of the opposition that he would find a safe house to register himself in the Mesopotamia area and not register where he lives and that more than anything else is the point we want to make.”
