Region 10 administration unsatisfied with rate of implementation of August 21st Agreement – 24th Dec 2012
The Upper Demerara /Berbice Region (Region 10) administration says it is not satisfied with the rate of implementation of the August 21st Agreement between the regional officials and the government. The Region says it is convinced that much more could be done by the Government to deliver on its commitment to the people of Linden and Region 10 in general.
There is specific concern about the region having an independent TV station once again.
According to the release, Region 10, in keeping with the Agreement delivered its application to the government to ensure that they could “facilitate the granting of the licence in keeping with the law”. Not much movement has been coming from the government’s side on that.
Solomon said the Region has mobilised the resources and is ready to broadcast except that the government has failed to honour the Agreement and return the transmitter to the people of Linden. The regional chairman said the patience of the people of Region 10 has been over taxed. It is time for the government to come good on its promise.
Region 10 officials say as responsible leaders of the Region, the engagements with the government will continue because as civilized persons they have to continue talking. The Region approaches the engagements they say, with the government in the spirit of compromise while promoting and protecting the interests of the people of Region 10.
