Tony Fraser reports on the options the PNM faces after Mr. Maraj is inevitably expelled from the party. Meanwhile, the Speaker has stepped down temporarily but the issue is far from settled. Within the region, three former Speakers state that they want to see the impasse resolved. Cuba's government is putting the finishing touches on new foreign investment law to lure more prospective foreign investors.
