GREAT BAY — On Friday, September 22, the President of Parliament, Sarah Wescot-Williams, issued a press statement pushing for an urgent meeting of Parliament on Monday, September 25. Rumors have been circulating since the passing of Hurricane Irma and the aftermath thereof, that a fall of the present National Alliance led government was eminent. With the push for an urgent meeting Monday by the President of Parliament, the rumor machines on social media geared up several notches.
This newspaper asked UP party leader and Member of Parliament, Theo Heyliger, whether the government was going to fall on Monday and this was his answer: “I have not been in any talks to form a government.”
The urgent meeting of Parliament will be held on Monday at 10am in temporary accommodations secured in the new government administration building on Pond Island as the present Parliament building is not functional due to sections of the upper floors being damaged by hurricane Irma.
