Meanwhile, Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar, speaking at a news briefing this afternoon said the Opposition had COVID-19 concerns in light of Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley, testing positive for the virus recently.
We have seen a pattern of this government of breaking the law, covering up and lying.
“Following the confirmation that the Prime Minister tested positive for Covid 19, and in light of the fact that the Prime Minister was present at the last Parliamentary sitting on March 26, 2021, Opposition Chief Whip, MP David Lee, wrote to the Speaker of the House requesting information regarding safety protocols undertaken.”
“As at 12:30 p.m., we did not get the courtesy of a reply to the Chief Whip’s very serious letter. This, we believe, was not only disrespectful, but contemptuous of the wellbeing and health of all members of the House and all members of staff at the Parliament.”
“Having no reply from the Speaker, our members, conscious of the law, and our oath to uphold the law, sent in letters requesting leave of absence 45 mins before the sitting. Our request was not even acknowledged by the Chair,” said Kamla Persad-Bissessar.
