The larger opposition A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) says it will re-open any agreement that the incumbent administration makes with local or foreign investors.

APNU Shadow Finance Minister, Carl Greenidge says these may include broadcast licenses, gold mining licenses, land grants and agreements with international and local businesses.

Chairman of the Private Sector Commission, Ramesh Persaud tells Caribbean News Desk that he sees no problem unless the agreements require approval by the National Assembly. 

Government usually lays certain agreements in the National Assembly long after they would have been signed.
