In a letter dated September 2, 2021, addressed to People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) Central Executive Committee Members, Party Leader David Granger made known his intent to take “temporary leave of absence to enjoy a brief vacation.” In typical Granger’s style this is not without controversy and sets a precedent of leave of absence (LOA) from leadership of the political […]

The statement by Gail Teixeira, Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Governance, that she wrote members of the United States (U.S) Congress, other international partners, and members of the local diplomatic corps about “misinformation and race-baiting” must not be taken lightly or dismissed.
