Moonilal says gov’t in political quicksand over local elections

Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal said the Government was now in political quicksand due to its manoeuvring in seeking to extend the life of local government bodies by a year.

During UNC’s Sunday morning press briefings, Moonilal along with senator Wade Mark reaffirmed that it was wrong for government to extend the life of these bodies, but it can’t bring laws to again seek a postponement of the local government elections.

Moonilal said the repercussions were serious, as he noted, “garbage trucks would be passing all over the country and drivers and collectors ent sure they will be paid,”

He said Government has run out of options and must call local government election now.

He claimed the Government was now in hiding over this matter.

Mark said: This is a crisis,” adding the the only one way out – local government elections.
