Parliamentary Secretary in the office of the Prime Minister with responsibly for Information Technology and Parliamentary Representative for St Joseph Kelver Darroux said he is disappointed by the Opposition’s decision to boycott Parliament.
Darroux told Parliament on Tuesday that members of his government expected to Opposition to participate in parliament but “as expected, they lack the testicular fortitude to take up any leadership role in this country”.
He said the people of Dominica need to understand that the “Opposition is useless and they are simply a waste of time”.
According to him, it is a great atrocity for the Opposition to come into parliament “to clock in and clock out and say they are representing the people,”
Darroux said, “What are they representing? What are they standing for? What are their principles? These are the questions that they need to answer. What we saw this morning is an Opposition-who at all cost-wants to take the country into the gutter. They do not want to see the single an average man in this country improve his life, instead they want to see this country remain poor. That is what they want but this government will not stand for it.”
Members of the UWP walked out Parliament yesterday shortly after the appointment of Danny Lugay as an opposition senator.
