Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) Ron Green has congratulated the two members of his party who were victorious at the July 9 bi-elections.
Edison James and Hector John of the Marigot and Salisbury constituencies, respectively, both retained their seats after they were made vacant for missing three consecutive sittings of Parliament.
“The people are saying that the issue of democracy should not be pushed aside and that is what Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has been doing. He has been trying to avoid the issue of electoral reform,” Green said.
He noted that the recently elected members will return to Parliament. He said the UWP awaits the intentions of the prime minister in that regard.
