[www.inewsguyana.com] – Former Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr Roger Luncheon has hinted at the possible entry of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) into parliament at the next sitting of the house while affirming that his political life is not over.
Dr Luncheon was the time fielding questions from members of the media at a press conference at Freedom House on Saturday, July 18 where he disclosed that the earliest date for the PPP’s return to parliament is July 30.
Since the Party lost the May 11 elections it has not entered the National Assembly but has named its parliamentarians with Dr Bharrat Jagdeo heading the list as Leader of the Opposition.
The Party would have received flak from the diplomatic corps as they were urged to take up their seats in Parliament.
“PPP could return at earliest on the 30th…I wouldn’t be definitive but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did,” said Dr Luncheon a Leader of the PPP.
Referring to his role in the Party and in active Guyanese politicking, Dr Luncheon made it clear that Guyanese would see more rather than less of him on the political scene.
Luncheon was an avid PPP campaigner in the run up to the May 11 polls having appeared on many of the campaign platforms. This is despite him being ill having being diagnosed with cancer.
“I don’t intend to have my health and concerns about my health being the subject of further disclosure,” said the Former Cabinet Secretary when questioned by reporters.
