Mottley to PM: Take charge


Share post:

The Opposition yesterday called on Prime Minister Freundel Stuart to take control of the country and turn around its “calamitous situation”.
Hours after being questioned by police over a walk-out at Parliament five months ago, Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley QC said it was clear that all of the initiatives announced by the Government had failed to correct the economic downturn.
“This situation now warrants prime ministerial intervention. It will not be enough for a Minister of Finance to come belatedly and read a script prepared by public relations consultants,” Mottley said.
She explained that the Opposition’s Press conference, originally scheduled for 2 p.m., was late because of earlier events in which she and two other Members of Parliament, Dale Marshall QC and Kerrie Symmonds, were interviewed by police about the walkout in July and the impromptu press briefing that followed.
