[www.inewsguyana.com] – Former, A Partnership For National Unity (APNU) Member of Parliament Vanessa Kissoon says that her name not appearing on the APNI/AFC Lists of Candidates for the May 11 elections is inconsequential since “position doesn’t matter” to her.
When the opposition coalition submitted its Lists of Candidates, the names of Kissoon and Region 10 Regional Chairman Sharma Solomon were noticeably absent from the list.
When questioned about the development, Granger had simply said that Kissoon had already served two terms in the National Assembly.
Concern and speculation surrounding Kissoon’s absence from the lists has been rife in the media, but Kissoon by her own words was unfettered by the development.
“I don’t know if you could remember when I was back benched, and my voice was still heard, so position doesn’t matter to me. Whether in or out of parliament I will continue my advocacy, it is bigger than me, bigger than Mr. Granger and Mr Nagamootoo it is for our young people as I said they are our future,” said the Former Parliamentarian.
Kissoon pointed out that the real issue would be the task at hand for the opposition coalition, which is taking the reins of government and that is where she would be directing her energies.
“Our leaders have a job to do, and that is to take the country out of the wedlock created by the PPP so they choose the creme of the crop as I said, not making on the list changes nothing my voice will still be heard,” Kissoon lamented.
