OUR DREAM IS TO MAKE YOURS HAPPEN
CASTRIES---Prime Minister Dr Kenny Anthony
says he believes term limits for government leaders
should be decided by the people.
"I believe that s a matter for the people to decide,
and I share the view that the people of the country
will decide whether they are tired of you or not,"
Anthony, a former law lecturer at the University
of the West Indies (UWI), was speaking against the
decision of the coalition People s Partnership gov-
ernment in T&T to introduce legislation to amend
the country s Constitution providing for two-term
limit for prime ministers and the right to recall leg-
The amendment will also allow for voters in the
twin-island republic to participate in a runoff vote,
if the winner of a seat in the general election does
not command 50 per cent of the votes cast.
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar described
the proposals as a bold step that would breathe new
life into the democratic process, but the opposition
People s National Movement (PNM) said the move
was a strategy to divert attention from the ongoing
ills confronting the country.
Debate on the proposed amendment to the Con-
stitution will begin in the T&T parliament on Mon-
Anthony said the issues raised by his T&T coun-
terpart were not new.
"These are issues that have been championed
throughout the Caribbean, and in the first St Lucia
Labour Party manifesto there was provision for leg-
islation to have term limits," Anthony said, adding
that the same issues are addressed in the report of
the Constitutional Review Commission that will be
debated in parliament here soon.
"I have no difficulty with term limits for members
of parliament if they commit serious infractions,"
Anthony said, adding that he believes in cases where
a parliamentarian crosses the floor, that legislator
ought to resign "for the very simple reason that
people were persuaded to vote for them on the basis
of loyalty to a particular party." (CMC)
