Opposition prepared to challenge EBC appointment and Inland Revenue Bill

The UNC is preparing to challenge the recent appointment of a Chief Elections Officer to the Elections and Boundaries Commission.

This was revealed last night by party leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

Media reports from earlier this month and in October claimed that persons who were overlooked for the post were raising concerns.

Mrs. Persad-Bissessar pointed to apprehensions of her own while speaking at the UNC Monday Night Forum in St Helena.
