Opposition files vote of No Confidence in Stuart Young

The Leader of the Opposition has filed a Parliamentary motion of no confidence in National Security Minister Stuart Young.

Kamla Persad-Bissessar said the motion is propelled by his handling of the exemption process which left thousands of citizens abandoned abroad.

She described him as a “clear and present danger to the national security of Trinidad and Tobago,” and said Young has proven himself to be the most incompetent, ineffective – even bordering on dangerous – National Security Minister to ever hold office.

She said every day he remains in office is a further threat to our safety and security as citizens of Trinidad and Tobago.

Persad-Bissessar said that all 19 Opposition members stand firmly in support of this motion given the turmoil and grave danger their constituents and, by extension, all citizens face on a daily basis.

The motion will be defeated in the Parliament as the People’s National Movement (PNM) commands the majority with 21 seats to the Opposition’s 19.
