Abdulah to make 'major announcement'
Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) leader, David Abdulah, is today set to make what the group called a "major announcement" amid speculation that he will pull out of the People's Partnership government.
Abdulah's office yesterday issued a media invitation for a press conference today at the Oilfields' Workers Trade Union (OWTU) office at Paramount Building at Circular Road, San Fernando.
The media invitation read, "The Movement for Social Justice (MSJ) invites the media to a very important press conference to be addressed by its political leader, Senator David Abdulah, where the MSJ will make a major announcement."
The press conference is scheduled for 11.30 a.m.
Contacted last night, Abdulah declined comment on his announcement today.
The relationship between the MSJ and the Partnership, a five-party coalition, has been perceived as having deteriorated, particularly within the past two months.
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar's decision to host a massive party to celebrate the government's second year in office on May 24, caused tension, with Abdulah publicly stating that it was not a time to celebrate in the country..
Abdulah said there were many problems, including crime, that continued to plague the country.
The MSJ did not appear on the platform at that event and also declined to attend a government retreat in Tobago, two weeks ago.
