Region 4 Chairman Daniel Seeram and Opposition Member of Parliament Roysdale Forde are among the members of the People’s National Congress Reform who will be added to the party’s Central Executive Committee.
Both Seeram and Forde ran for executive positions at the party’s recent elections and lost their bids. However, the party’s constitution allows the Leader to co-opt non-elected members to the CEC.
In addition to Forde, party members Joan-Ann Ramacindo and Sherwood Lowe have also been Co-opted to the Central Executive Committee.
Today, the PNC Leader Aubrey Norton said it will be all hands on deck to move the party forward.
“I think it is reasonable to conclude that I believe there is a place for everyone in the party. I believe essentially the party’s work is made lighter when we have all hands on deck, Mr. Harmon has hands and I am disposed to having them on deck,” Mr. Norton said.
Following the last party’s congress in 2018, Mr. Harmon was co-opted into the Executive by then party Leader David Granger after he lost the race for party Chairman.
It is unclear whether Mr. Norton intends to add him back to the executive as a co-opted member. Norton said it is the party that comes first.
“If you look at my approach since becoming leader, Richard Van-West Charles ran against me we engaged him and we are working together. Many of the persons who didn’t support me are on the executive many of them won elections and those who didn’t were co-opted,”.
As it relates to replacing Members of the National Assembly, the party leader said such decisions will have to be taken at the level of the Central Executive Committee.
