PNM to march with labour movement on July 5

The General Council of the People's National Movement (PNM) agreed on Saturday that the party would join a labour march on July 5 to the Prime Minister’s office. 

"We will be coming out in full force in full red attire. We will be coming out in our thousands on behalf of the People’s National Movement in joining that march against the government," party chairman Franklin Khan told reporters.

The march was announced by the movement at Labour day celebrations in Fyzabad on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar would not be in her Port of Spain office on that day. The march coincides with the 34th Caricom Summit, which is being held at the Trinidad Hilton during that week.

Persad-Bissessar takes over the Caricom chair this year on the 40th anniversary of the Treaty of Chaguaramas, which established the Caribbean Community.

Khan also said the party's political leader did nothing wrong when he went to meet Integrity Commission chairman Ken Gordon at Gordon's home on May 15.

Party chairman Franklin Khan said, "The General Council also views with favour that Mr Gordon did not resign his position as chairman of the Integrity Commission.”
