St Kitts Speaker not resigning


Share post:

BASSETERRE Attorney General Vincent Byron Jr, has dismissed rumours circulating in mainstream and social media that Speaker of the National Assembly Franklyn Brand, has tendered his resignation.

The attorney general said that the rumours have no basis and are just not true.

Brand presided over the Special Sitting of the 2016 Budget Debate only in December but had to leave before the end to attend to an urgent matter.

Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Michael Perkins presided in Brand’s absence.

The Attorney General made it clear that under the ousted Douglas Administration this could never have happened because the House had no deputy speaker. (SKNIS)
