Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley confirms receipt of the Opposition Leader’s proposals to tackle crime.
In a post on Facebook, Dr. Rowley says having received a voluminous seven (7) page reply from the Opposition Leader, he deliberately chose to focus on what could be extracted as elements of public interest in keeping with his invitation to have bilateral talks.
He says the Opposition’s response contains an appendix of suggested issues to which the Government will add and respond by outlining additional matters to be raised by the Government.
He says when this is done, there will then be an agenda of work for the suggested eight-person Committee. Dr. Rowley says the Government team will be named in the coming days and the actual engagements will take place after the budget debates are concluded.
On September 17th, Prime Minister Rowley extended an invitation to Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad-Bissesser to share her proposals in writing to address the matter of the safety and security of the population – which she believes are worthy of bipartisan discussions between the Government and the Opposition.
