Poll did an ‘injustice’ to Stuart


Share post:

DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER FREUNDEL STUART was done an injustice by the recent NATION poll, says former Democratic Labour Party general secretary Lionel Sealy.
He said the basis of the poll, as it related to Stuart, was the comparison of the performance of a minister in his substantive position as opposed to the performance of a minister in the acting position of Prime Minister.
“To attempt to evaluate someone’s performance in such an acting position is not the same as evaluating the performance of somebody in his substantive position,” he said.
Sealy said that as the “caretaker” of the office of Prime Minister, Stuart’s primary objective was to ensure that plans and programmes left in place by the holder of the office were maintained.
“It is nothing to do with the person’s ability. He is just a caretaker. It makes no sense to make such a comparison,” he said. (WG)
