If Re-Elected, U.D.P. Chair Vows to Release Cabinet Confidential Papers

U.D.P. Chairman Michael Peyrefitte, also told reporters that if the U.D.P. was in office they would honor the request of the Senate Special Select Committee for Cabinet confidential papers. In fact, Peyrefitte pledged that the next U.D.P. government will provide any Cabinet paper requested. Here is how he responded when reporters asked him about a decision by the Briceño Cabinet to release confidential documents would set bad precedents.

Michael Peyrefitte, Chairman, U.D.P.

“This is not a precedents setting government. This is not a government you want to copy or refer to at any time for the rest of the history of the country. This is a five years that the country will want to forget. They will set no kind of precedents. The next United Democratic Party government that the people will elect in will give you whatever Cabinet paper you want, you know why, because there is no secret to it. People come with proposals to the Cabinet for deliberations. If people want those documents and want to know what agreement the government came to or they want to find a definitive agreement that the government signed or any sort of agreement, it is for the people. There is no such thing as a private, public document. That is all public unless you are talking about issues that have to do with national security.”
