PDP assemblymen Farley Augustine, Watson Duke and Dr. Faith B. Yisrael arrive for power-sharing talks with the PNM at the Assembly Legislature Building, Scarborough on Wednesday

After power-sharing talks between itself and the People’s National Movement (PNM) flopped on March 17, the Progressive Democratic Patriots (PDP) is suggesting independent mediators be part of future meetings.

In a March 18 release, the party said it is “disappointed” with the first face-to-face meeting and suggests another meeting takes place on March 22, at the Assembly Legislature Building from 4 pm.

” Notwithstanding the turn of events, we now call on all twelve Assemblymen to return to the negotiation table; this time with the inclusion of independent mediators,” the release said.

It also noted that both parties should work out the temporary government arrangement to allow the Tobago Autonomy Bill to be passed in Parliament, triggering fresh elections in Tobago.
