Wade Mark’s threat, and in essence that of the UNC, to withhold support for any future legislation if no changes are made to the Procurement bill, has been met with a jaded response from Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi.
After being asked to comment on the statement, the AG said “What’s new?”
Al-Rawi said “He has made a threat, obviously on behalf of Kamla Persad-Bissessar that they will be supporting no legislation. Senator Mark’s track record will show that he has not supported anything.
The AG also said that the Opposition did not contribute anything to the bill or its amendments even at the Joint Select Committee.
He said “The Government accepts that it will not have any support from the Opposition on anything.”
