Today, I formally wrote the Honourable Speaker about her Guidelines issued on 19 October 2021, protesting the gross affront to our Constitution, our Standing Orders and the foundational principles of Parliamentary democracy.
I raised three issues, namely:
1) War on our democracy
2) The disqualification of the Speaker to chair the Section 36 proceedings and
3) The recusal of Senator Clarisse Seepersad, sister of dishonoured PolSC Chairman.
