@ Dave, did you write that piece ? never seem you present a lengthy post. Any way some are factual and some not, the Prime Minister salary wasn't increased by 50%, the AG salary was more than the PM, so a balancing act took place.The twenty vehicles seems like an overstretch.
Me thinks the Leadership of the AFC reached out to Nagamottoo for the Prime Minister position, also there is no rift between Prakash Ramjattan and Moses Nagamottoo.
I was still with the AFC when Nagamootoo defected to the AFC. Nagamootoo provided a lifeline of votes that the AFC was not able to muster. There is no rule written that the founding members take precedent over any other, it was about votes, In 2011 Ramjattan lost in his home constituency and clearly lacked any constituency!
Had the AFC used their balance of power to further the agenda of the People, today they would have likely moved up the food chain and become much more relevant.
