The General Council of the ruling PNM met Saturday afternoon and took a decision to ask the government to amend the controversial Marriages Act.
The decision was taken in spite of the fact that the PNM is the government of the day.
But there was no discussion on the violent crime situation.
Nor was there any dialogue on the earlier revelation that attorney Kerwin Garcia received a cheque for almost $.5 million within hours of presentation of a pro forma invoice to State-run Urban Development Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (UDECOTT).
Garcia is nephew of UDECOTT’s chair Noel Garcia.
He is son of Education Minister Anthony Garcia.
He is husband of President of the Senate Christine Kangaloo.
The matter was raised by the opposition in the House of Representatives on Friday evening.
Attorney General Faris Al Rawi promised to investigate.
