(Trinidad Guardian) “It ain’t gonna happen!”
That was Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley’s declaration yesterday, as he warned the Opposition that Government will strenuously fight any further moves to stymie his Government.
“Anybody could go to court, what we take objection to is people from the former cabinet using their free time to use the court to stymie this Cabinet—it ain’t gonna happen!” the PM added.
Rowley was speaking to the media about Government’s successes on legal challenges concerning property tax form submission and on the composition of the Judicial and Legal Service Commission during a post-Cabinet press briefing at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann’s.
Both matters, presented by former People’s Partnership minister Devant Maharaj, failed.
Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi said Government had won five appeals in the last two days against the Opposition—four on property tax issues and also on the JLSC matter.
Rowley said Cabinet met yesterday on the developments, rather than holding its usual Thursday meeting.
