LEADER of the Opposition, the Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil Douglas has signalled that he would not be present at today’s (Nov. 14) sitting of the National Assembly.
According to an Erasmus Williams’ release, which contained a statement from the Office of the Leader of the Opposition, Dr. Douglas’ absence from the sitting of the lawmaking body “is due to pre-existing travel arrangements”.“The travel arrangements were made well in advance of this parliamentary sitting being scheduled.”
It noted that the Labour Party views today’s sitting as being under the guise to confirm rumours that the party’s leader is no longer a member of the Honourable House.“The St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP) and the Parliamentary Opposition are firmly of the view that this particular parliamentary sitting was hurriedly scheduled in an effort to make the rumour about Dr. Douglas being disqualified as a Member of Parliament.
