The extraordinary general meeting (EGM) of Pan Trinbago on Thursday called by president Keith Diaz to apprise members the status of the organisation, report on court matters and the election 2018-2021 ended in chaos.
From the central executive, Diaz showed up before the scheduled 5 pm start time, treasurer Andrew Salvador a bit later, and just before 7 pm, secretary Richard Forteau, trustee Trevor Reid, events relations officer (ERO) Darren Sheppard and public relations officer (PRO) Michael Joseph.
The meeting took place at CWU Hall in Port of Spain
As Diaz tried to get the meeting started at 6.58 pm, there was haggling among the executive as to whether or not there was a quorum.
A highly upset Marie Toby, chairman of the Tobago Region, vented: “I find today was a waste of people’s time, because the executive came here unprepared. Imagine they come here debating what is quorum and what is not quorum and fighting among themselves.
"Let them do the honourable thing and take the door,” she said, pointing to the door.
If there was no substance brought to the discussions, it was clearly what Diaz, Toby and the rest of thair cabal brought to the table, because is only they that spoke.
The beat goes on.
