PNCR Linden faction protests during opening ceremony
-Aubrey Norton says some of his supporters being abused
In a move that would have embarrassed the party, a section of the PNCR’s Linden faction staged a protest at Congress Place yesterday during the opening ceremony of the party’s 28th Biennial Congress
Among the motives for the protest was the non-accreditation of several Lindeners as delegates and the perceived unconstitutional manner in which the party’s upper echelon is handling the Vanessa Kissoon-Oscar Clarke altercation. Kissoon was suspended by the PNCR Leader David Granger over the matter but she has since said that this was ultra vires the party’s constitution.
The opening ceremony was well underway when about fifty persons, decked out in red and black and white and black combinations, congregated at a barricade set up in the compound of the party headquarters. Though she was not situated in a prominent position amongst the demonstrators, Kissoon, Member of Parliament (MP) representing Linden, was noted in their midst.
