UNC PRO: Robinson-Regis should stick to national affairs

The United National Congress is telling Lady Vice-President of the PNM, Camille Robinson-Regis to stick to national affairs after Robinson-Regis called on the people of Guyana to reject the Opposition Leader's recent address to them.

The UNC says the press release by Robinson-Regis was in poor taste.

The following is the response by the UNC.

PNM Lady Vice-Chairman Camille Robinson-Regis is calling on the people of Guyana to completely reject the advice given to them by Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

Robinson-Regis says Persad-Bissessar's message of nation-building is hypocritical, given that her party was at the same time, refusing to support the Income Tax Amendment Bill.

The following is a statement from Balisier House.
