Leader of the Opposition, Allen Chastanet exited the House of Parliament yet again during Tuesday’s sitting. On this occasion, Chastanet’s leave was due to his displeasure with the government’s handling of his return to the Chamber. According to Chastanet, the government showed disdain for the court order issued, which stated that he should have been reinstated in the house as the first motion set forth.
The Micoud South MP did not take kindly to comments made by members during the initial phase of the sitting. He particularly did not like the fact that the pending lawsuit between the Leader of the Opposition and the Speaker of the House was spoken of loosely on the floor.
“What we see here today is a trial, a public trail of Allen Chastanet, a public trial of the United Workers Party, and a public trial of the public of this country” Chastanet said. “To go into detail of a court case and to give your own opinion of the court case? If in fact you felt so strongly, so righteous and so confident about what you’re saying, why did you go to the courts and give a consent order to reverse the same decision?” he questioned.
This is yet another chapter in the saga between Chastanet and the government over alleged mistreatment in the Chamber.
