Mary King questions Warner’s appointment
Former government senator Mary King is questioning the PM’s appointment of Jack Warner as acting PM. In a media release sent to the T&T Guardian, Mary King said as secretary of the Global Organisation of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (GOPAC), “The Prime Minister’s decision to appoint (the) Honourable Jack Warner, Minister of National Security, as acting Prime Minister during her absence is appalling.
“One must question the Prime Minister’s faith in the minister, considering the serious allegations of corruption swirling about him.” The release goes on to say Warner’s appointment clearly demonstrates that neither the PM nor Warner is concerned about ethics and morality in government. King said Warner’s appointment is a sure sign that democracy is under attack in T&T.
GOPAC, she said, is “an action-oriented network of parliamentarians committed to ensuring transparency and accountability in government. Through leadership, education, and by building a strong coalition of elected officials, members of GOPAC are working to bring democratic accountability to governments all over the world.” King also called on parliamentarians to hold the government accountable for ethics and morality and to condemn Warner’s appointment.
