The about turn which appears to be contrived by People’s Natonal Party (PNP) former treasurer Mr. Norman Washington Horne has serious implications for the enactment of laws and by extension the government’s ability to function as it relates legislation … is being deeply examined by known public figures, a number of which are commenting on the issue.

Venesia Williams PNP Y/O VP has resigned over the issue. She claims that of Twenty posts up for grabs, nineteen have been filled by pro-Golding appointees.
