Chandan-Edmond resigns as General Secretary of PNC/R


Less than a year after she was handpicked by the Leader of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNC/R) Aubrey Norton to serve as the party’s General Secretary, former Magistrate Geeta Chandan-Edmond has resigned from the post.

While party sources confirmed the resignation, the reasons for the decision remain unclear.

Chandan-Edmond herself was unreachable Thursday morning. She had been absent from her office at Congress Place, Sophia for several months but submitted the letter to Norton on Wednesday.

She thanked party members for the support, cooperation and guidance she received during her stint as GS.

“It has been an absolute honour and privilege,” Chandan-Edmond wrote, saying she will remain committed to the ideals of the party. She remains a Member of Parliament.

Norton himself had previously skirted questions on her absence from the party amid claims she was not allowed independence to function in her role.

Norton had said that Chandan-Edmond, a professional lawyer, possessed management and good human relations skills that make her suitable to be General Secretary of the PNCR.

Chandan-Edmond had replaced Amna Ally, a long-serving member of the PNC/R.
