Opposition chief whip David Lee said government clearly has no confidence in its Minister of Energy Franklin Khan.
And, he said Khan should have resigned on Friday after the government did not strike down a motion of no confidence brought against him by the opposition.
Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Lee said “If Franklin Khan had any self-respect coming out of that debate on Friday and the way how his colleagues treated him, he should resign as Minister of Energy and Energy Industries because they have no faith in Franklin Khan.”
Lee referenced how the government treated the opposition’s motion of no confidence brought against Minister of National Security Stuart Young in January.
He said they cut the debate short and took a vote of confidence in him, using their majority in the lower house to their advantage.
“Clearly it shows that they have no confidence in Minister Khan,” he said.
