LEADING THE WAY IN PRIVATE
TERTIARY EDUCATION SINCE 1984
Former Foreign Affairs
Minister Winston Dook-
eran says calling for the
resignation of a public
official is not the solu-
tion to any problem.
He said so in an inter-
view with reporters fol-
lowing his book launch
at the St Augustine cam-
pus of the University of the West Indies on Tues-
The book is called Crisis and Promise in the
Caribbean: Politics and Convergence.
Dookeran was responding to questions on calls for
Central Bank Governor Jwala Rambarran to resign
over his handling of the Clico shareholders affair.
The call was made by former finance minister Gerald
Dookeran said there were two issues that bothered
him about calls for people to step down.
"In politics we feel that we have found the solution
by asking people to resign," he said.
According to the former minister, "In politics when
people resign there are no consequences to that as
if they have now exonerated themselves."
He said: "It is quite superficial to look at major
issues and feel there is a solution by simply doing
that (stepping down)."
Dookeran said with respect to the specific call: "I
think these are matters of politics and these are
matters of governance that will take its course."
Asked to comment on the appointment of Colm
Imbert as Minister of Finance, Dookeran said it was
not compulsory for a minister to be a qualified econ-
omist. He said Imbert had "great experience in politics
and we ll see how he performs."
Dookeran said he continued to have faith in the
country s public policy positions. He said despite
bowing out of active politics, he remained committed
to T&T and the Caribbean.
In response to another question he said both the
PNM and the UNC had attempted "to imitate the
image that was portrayed by the Congress of the
People (COP). I think it will continue to reflect itself,
perhaps deeper and deeper as the years move on."
Dookeran said the book launch was dedicated to
the more than 143,000 citizens who voted for the
COP in 2007.
Campus Principal Clement Sankat said Dookeran
was a principled politician and statesman, a passionate
intellect, academic and author, a humble public
servant and incomparable patriot.
"In politics we
feel that we
