Solomon tells PNCR General Secretary that Kissoon entitled to delegate status

Contender for the leadership of the PNCR, Sharma Solomon today wrote party General Secretary Oscar Clarke stating that MP Vanessa Kissoon is entitled to delegate status at tomorrow’s biennial congress.

Solomon, also the Chairman of the Region 10 democratic council asked that Clarke speedily address this matter. The letter is the latest move in a widening rift between the PNCR Linden group and Congress Place.

The Central Executive Council of the party has moved to discipline Kissoon over an altercation with Clarke but this process has not been recognized by Kissoon or Region 10 members. In the meanwhile, Kissoon has been suspended from the party.

The row is deeply embarrassing for the PNCR coming days before its congress.

Solomon’s letter to Clarke follows:

Dear General Secretary,

Consistent with Rule 15 (2) (d) of the Party Constitution, Ms. Vanessa Kissoon is entitled to delegate status at the 18th Biennial Congress of the People’s National Congress Reform. The members of PNCR Region 10 are advising that the General Secretary complies and provide her with the appropriate accreditation.  Ms. Vanessa Kissoon is APNU Member of Parliament on the PNCR list.

Rule 15 (2) (d)- “All members of the General Council, Party Nominees to the Parliament and National Congress of Local Democratic Organs shall be entitled to attend the Biennial Congress and participate in its deliberations, but of these only Party Members have the right to vote merely by virtue of office.”

Your speedy address of this matter is anticipated.


Sharma Solomon- Member CEC & Congress Committee
