Antigua to host third OECS Assembly on Saturday


The OECS Assembly will meet here on Saturday for only its third such gathering since its inauguration in 2012.

It will be held at the Parliament Building in St. John’s, the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States secretariat announced today.

It did not indicate the agenda items for the body which has had difficulty meeting since its first sitting in 2013

Despite being in a state of limbo officials maintain that the body is important to the OECS integration movement and blamed the unavailability of members for its infrequent meetings.

The OECS Assembly comprises five representatives from the Parliament of each Full Member State and three from the Legislature of each Associated Member. These representatives must include the Head of Government and the Leader of the Opposition.
