[www.inewsguyana.com] – Aubrey Norton should apologise to Chairman of Region 10, Sharma Solomon for misleading him in a number of areas, according to General Secretary of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR), Oscar Clarke.
Clarke told a news conference on Wednesday, July 30 that Solomon is now realizing that he was ill advised by Norton leading up to the PNCR’s 18th Biennial Congress, which was marred by protests from a group of Lindeners.
The General Secretary pointed out that Norton is a Former General Secretary, Parliamentarian and member of the Central Executive Committee of the Party and should have known better than to make “certain comments.”
“He [Norton] has good reasons to create the problems in Region Ten. He griped about not returning to Parliament after the general elections. He is, in my opinion, a person who is an advisor to the leadership of Region Ten, particularly Mr Solomon Sharma…he should apologise,” Clarke said.
Clarke opined that Norton should not mislead “young leaders.”
“I really feel that Mr Solomon is beginning to recognize that he was not given the best advice by our colleague, Aubrey Norton. If he [Norton] wishes to continue as a useful member of our Party, he must desist from doing so,” Clarke said.
He further noted that he has no ill feelings against Norton.
“I have nothing against Mr Norton except this behaviour of his. It’s not helpful to our Party.”
Norton challenged David Granger for leadership of the Party during the Congress, however he pulled out on the day of voting, citing a flawed voting process. His actions were supported by Solomon and a group of Lindeners.
