After emerging from the close to two hours meeting, Dr. Kublalsingh told members of the media that President Carmona was extremely gracious and welcoming, and showed the three member delegation a lot of respect, in contrast to the way the group has been treated by Prime Minister, Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

Dr. Kublalsingh said the President told the delegation that he had no position on the highway issue, but would likely offer one in September, as he wanted to read the Highway Review Committee’s report in its entirely.

Dr. Kublalsingh said President Carmona acknowledged that he did not have executive powers, but spoke often with Government, and had advisory powers.

The President said he was interested in meeting with the group again in September.
