“The DNA is fully committed to doing away with this concept of a prime minister having exclusive determination as to when an election is called,” Massiah said, adding “we want elections to be fixed so that the people will know that the elections are due every five years and in March, April, May, June or whatever the month is elections are due”.
Browne told the newspaper that based on the fallout and eventual non-support from the opposition for the referendum on the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), he does not believe his opponents would be committed to pursuing this other matter that’s equally important.
“This was clearly demonstrated by the political games that were played leading up to the aborted CCJ referendum. It is noteworthy, that the United Progressive Party (UPP) has failed to respond to our request for a bipartisan approach to transition to the CCJ, based on the espoused support of its leadership,” he said.
He described the opposition as immature, adding “talk the talk but will never walk the walk”.
