As per the Order Paper for this week, the Leader of Government Business, Hon. Charles de Commarmond presented three Motions for the approval by the House of the nominations of Mrs. Luciana Lagrenade, Mr. Patrick Payet and Mr. Billy Rangasamy, as Ministers of the Republic of Seychelles in accordance to Article 69 (2) of the Constitution. In the subsequent Debate, the Leader of the Opposition, Hon. Wavel Ramkalawan stated that LDS Members would not approve the nominations. Following the Speaker’s ruling to adjourn for 30 minutes for further consultation, the Sitting resumed with both sides upholding opposite positions. This culminated in the walk out of the Members of the Parti Lepep.
In view of this situation, the Speaker took the decision to adjourn and not proceed to a vote in the absence of the mover of the three motions, Hon. Charles de Commarmond.
The procedure to be followed during next Tuesday’s Sitting regarding the three Motions will depend on the position taken by the two political parties in the House.
