Former Government Minister, Jack Warner, is the view the Opposition’s motion to have the President impeached should have been entertained and debated in the Parliament.
In October Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar, filed a constitutional motion seeking to have President Paula Mae Weekes, removed from office.
The Member of Parliament for Siparia claimed her Excellency was politically influenced in the selection process of a Police Commissioner after a visit from a high office-holder and is therefore unfit to continue as President.
However, the motion was defeated by the Parliament’s Electoral College during a sitting of the House of Representatives and the Senate by a vote of 24 members for, 47 members against, with no abstentions.
Reflecting on the development during the Power Breakfast Show on Power 102 Digital Monday, Mr Warner, said the motion was a good one and should been treated as such.
