Roseau MP describes Prime Minister’s remarks as ‘shameful’

first_imgLocalNews Roseau MP describes Prime Minister’s remarks as ‘shameful’ by: – July 20, 2012 12 Views   one comment Sharing is caring! Share Senator, Norris Prevost (file photo).Member of Parliament for the Roseau Central constituency and Opposition senator, Norris Prevost, has described part of the Prime Minister’s opening speech during his budget presentation which criticized opposition members, as “shameful”.On Tuesday, Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Roosevelt Skerrit presented budgetary estimates amounting to four hundred and forty million, three hundred and thirty seven thousand, six hundred and twenty eighty thousand Eastern Caribbean dollars (EC$437.628.018), for the financial year 2012/2013 to Parliament.During that presentation, he chastised the United Workers Party (UWP), for being “asleep” for over two years and not contributing to Parliamentary debates while the country faced trying economic challenges.Mr. Skerrit said Dominica is the “only country for which no record of opposition participation in the economic debate can be found”.He said further; “For two and a half years they slept, while the country navigated its way through turbulent economic waters and this past week, they got their voices back by trumpeting the same rhetoric of 2009. It would seem that since this crisis started they never read a book; never reviewed a file; never paid attention to what was going on around them in the region and the world”. Norris Prevost, during his response to the budget on Wednesday, noted that these shameful comments should not have been part of the Prime Minister’s address.“It is shameful for a prime minister, in a budget address, to make those kinds of remarks about other people, whether they are members of Parliament or whether they are just ordinary Dominicans, Madam Speaker. And again he goes on to repeat those similar negative comments in his closing remarks and I don’t want to repeat them”. He said however, while the opposition members are being criticized for not “reading books”, this alone cannot solve the economic crisis which Dominica is faced with.“I would assume that the ministers of government have read many books and have reviewed many files in relation to the economic crisis that Dominica is facing and has been facing for the last ten years, twelve years, Madam Speaker? I assume that they have read many books and have read many files. However, the truth of the matter is that solutions do not come just from reading books”.The solution to the economic crisis, he explained, lies in the ability of ministers of government to analyze the books which they have read and applying it to Dominica’s situation.“Solutions to problems come from reading books, analyzing what is written, seeking to see how they apply to your present situation and then bringing the resources together to implement some of those potential solutions. Unfortunately, these seem to be the areas where the government has not been able to come up to speed; analyzing what is written in the books, seeking to see how they apply to Dominica’s economic problems and then applying some of those solutions to solving Dominica’s economic problems”.He therefore “commended” the ministers of government for reading books, but went a step further by advising them to heed the advice of their technocrats.“I still want to say to them that they need to listen to the advice of the very knowledgeable technocrats that we have in the public servants, who very often explain to them how we can implement many of those things in books to get solutions,” Prevost said.
