The Movement for Social Justice calls on the government to complete the negotiations for the re-opening of the Pointe-a-Pierre refinery.
It has been in negotiations with Patriotic Energies and Technologies Company, a company wholly-owned by the Oilfields Workers Trade Union.
Finance Minister, Colm Imbert, said in the parliament last September, OWTU as preferred bidder for the refinery.
Speaking with News Power Now this afternoon, MSJ Political Leader, David Abdullah, said the party remains confident the deal will be finalised in the union’s favour.
He spent decades as a senior official of the union.
He said areas in the southern communities are in urgent need of economic stimulus which can happen with the reopening of the refinery.
Mr Abdullah is contesting the August 10 general election as his party’s candidate in Pointe-s-Pierre.
