Procurement bill passed

Procurement bill passed: 4 Independents give support
Among the nine Independent senators, four voted in favour of the Bill—Senators Anthony Vieira, Amrita Deonarine, Charrise Seepersad and Dr Maria Dillon-Remy; two Independent senators voted against the Bill— Deoroop Teemal and Hazel Thompson-Ahye (along with the six Opposition senators); while Paul Richards, Dr Varma Deyalsingh and Evans Welch abstained.

But the Government had to make concessions by way of amendments in order to get the support of some members of the Independent Bench, recognising that it needed at least one Independent vote or abstention to get home.
