Harmon yet to get response from CARICOM on mediation of gov’t-opposition impasse

Several letters from Leader of the Opposition Joseph Harmon to Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Chair Keith Rowley have gone unacknowledged, including a letter sent last week asking that the regional body mediate the current stalemate between the Irfaan Ali government and Guyana’s main parliamentary opposition APNU+AFC.

“There were two or three letters I would’ve written before and I’ve not received even an acknowledgement from the Chair or the Secretary General. I don’t know if the bureaucratic arrangements in their offices are not sufficient enough to receive and acknowledge a letter,” Harmon told Stabroek News yesterday.
