Ramesh and Jack to meet in November…


Former A.G, Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj.

Former attorney general Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj and Independent Liberal Party Interim Leader, Jack Warner will meet after the November 4th St Joseph by-election.

On Friday, Mr. Maharaj confirmed that the ILP interim leader had called him on Thursday for the first time since 2010, saying he wanted to meet with him to discuss what happened in the past, among other things.

Speaking at a public meeting on Thursday night, Mr. Warner said he had called Maharaj because it was time for the re-formation of the “RamJack” platform, consisting of Maharaj, Warner and Winston “Gyspy” Peters.

The “RamJack” platform was successful in getting then United National Congress (UNC) leader Basdeo Panday  to call internal elections. However, leading up to those elections, Warner supported Kamla Persad-Bissessar, instead of Maharaj, for the political leadership of the party.

Yesterday, Maharaj said Warner did not mention anything about a return of “RamJack” during this conversation, and that there was no agreement on that matter.

He said he told Warner he was no longer interested in electoral politics, but that he had been meeting with leaders of the opposition parties since 2010 on matters of governance, law and democracy.

The former A.G said during their conversation, he told Warner he had been responsible for Mrs, Persad-Bissessar being Prime Minister, and therefore he also had to take responsibility for what was happening in the country.

He said Warner said he was sorry.

In the middle of November, Maharaj will be launching an organisation aimed at political education in respect of governance.

It will be called Democratic Watch.
