Region 10 Chairman prepared to apply to broadcast authority for licence
Region 10 Chairman Sharma Solomon has indicated willingness on the part of the region’s administration to apply to the Guyana National Broadcasting Authority (GNBA) to operate the region’s television station.
The indication comes after statements by GNBA Chairman Bibi Shadick and Governance Advisor Gail Teixeira that the application was never submitted. Solomon has said that the application was submitted to Cabinet Secretary Roger Luncheon, who promised the region that he would pass the documents to the GNBA. Shadick though, has said that the relevant laws demand that the application be submitted to GNBA, and pointed out that Luncheon is not an officer of the authority.
