Kamla Persad Bissessar responds

The United National Congress

Opposition leader Kamla Persad Bissessar says it was one of the darkest days in the country’s history.

Mrs. Persad Bissessar was referring to the rules issued by the Speaker to guide the motion brought against the President of Republic.

Specifically, the rules stated that MPs were to just vote and leave; that there would be no debate.

The Opposition leader called Speaker Brigid Annisette George’s guidelines, illegal.

Mrs. Persad Bissessar condemned the act of muting the microphones of Opposition members in the parliament.

She is concerned that history would not have been properly recorded as they were prevented from speaking.

Mrs. Persad Bissessar said it brought her no pleasure to bring the motion.

And the Electoral College votes against the setting up of the tribunal to remove President Paula Mae Weekes.

Yesterday the Opposition’s motion to consider this failed.

Opposition representatives expressed their objections to the process and the presence of Independent Senator Charisse Seepersad.

Their mics were muted but their votes were counted.

In the end, there was a result as announced by Speaker Of the House, Brigid Annisette George.

Earlier, during the roll call, most Opposition MP’s said they were present under protest.

The motion was the result of the controversy over the appointment of a substantive Commissioner of Police.
