ALL PARTISAN CONCERNS were brushed aside for the grand occasion of Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave’s installation yesterday.
And at the highest level it was evident as Prime Minister Freundel Stuart (left) and Opposition Leader Owen Arthur exchanged a hearty handshake in the yard of the Parliament Buildings.
The two were recently the main focus of a national CADRES poll that showed Arthur as the most popular political leader, followed by Opposition member Mia Mottley, Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, and Stuart a distant fourth.
Stuart has since promised to settle the issue soon via the general election, constitutionally due by mid-April next year.
