PNC uses flimsy excuse to stage another Parliamentary walk out
In an attempt to make up for their irrelevance the Peoples National Congress Reform (PNCR) today staged another walk out of the National Assembly during the debate on the Broadcast Bill giving as its reason the fact that the bill would not be taken to a parliamentary select committee. The party did not make such a request. And this was confirmed when government back-bencher, Gail Teixiera told the House that government has not received any request by the opposition. Acting House Speaker, Mohabir Nandlall said Parliament also did not receive any request for the matter to be deferred.
