Sir Gerald Watt KC, the Speaker of the House, has stressed the vital importance of strictly adhering to Parliamentary procedures and the relevant Standing Orders.
He made it unequivocally clear that he will enforce these rules without any leniency.
The Speaker conveyed this message during an update to the Lower House, specifically addressing the case of St. Peter MP Asot Michael, who was expelled due to his behavior.
Despite Michael’s petition to overturn his suspension, the court dismissed it, asserting its lack of authority over the legislative body’s internal affairs.
Sir Gerald firmly stated that he will address any disruptive conduct within the House, emphasizing the robust nature of the governing Standing Orders, separate from the Constitution of Antigua and Barbuda.
