The Opposition has confirmed its support of Government’s nominee for President, Justice Paula Mae Weekes.
The announcement was made by Opposition Leader Kamala Persad-Bissessar at a news conference this afternoon following a meeting with Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and several other Government Ministers, this morning, for continued discussions on the matter.
Elaborating on the Opposition’s decision to second the nomination of Justice Mae Weekes, Mrs. Persad Bissessar indicated that while the Opposition’s support for a government nominee is not unprecedented, under the circumstances currently facing our country and with the unprecedented level of mistrust and betrayal that some citizens have towards the present administration, support for any proposal of this government, especially for the office of President, is not one that is politically expedient or without its challenges.
