Manning gets another 42 days’ leave
PNM MP Patrick Manning has received further leave—42 days—from the Parliament, Speaker Wade Mark said yesterday. At yesterday’s House of Representatives session, Mark said Manning had sought 42 days’ leave, effective March 6. This was granted. Manning suffered a stroke in January 2012 and subsequently went overseas for rehabilitation. He returned last July. He has been on leave from the Parliament since his stroke and last sought leave a few months ago. This was to have ended this month.
Manning suffered a seizure almost two weeks ago and was hospitalised for a day. Mark said the request for leave was accompanied by a medical certificate from the medical officer who had been assigned to Manning since he returned from the US in July.
