By Sharmain GraingerThe parliamentary opposition took what it described as a “principled position” to ensure that Minister of Home Affairs Clement Rohee was unable to move the second reading of the Firearms (Amendment) Bill when the National Assembly continued.This “principled position” was adopted yesterday.The move was characterised by the parliamentary opposition again drowning out the attempts of the Minister to speak. There was continuous drumming on tables and vociferous chants of “Rohee must go.”Opposition Leader David Granger speaks to Media operativesThis prompted the Speaker to call a five-minute recess, but this did nothing to change the minds of the parliamentary opposition, whose members continued in full chanting mode when the session resumed.As such, the Speaker was forced to suspend the Assembly until November 22,Wholesale Jerseys, 2012.  His action, which was evoked some 20 minutes into the sitting, was premised on Standing Order 47:09, and effectively brought the business of the House to an end yesterday.Following the suspension of the sitting, Leader of the parliamentary opposition, Brigadier (Ret.) David Granger told media operatives that “we relied on the practice of the United Kingdom House of Commons. We are confident that the Speaker’s ruling ignores the ability of our National Assembly.”The United Kingdom House of Commons, according to Granger, allows the House to sanction a Minister and call upon the Minister,wholesale nfl jerseys, having been sanctioned, to resign. The Opposition Leader stressed, too, that “for reasons of public security – we are not concerned with one incident – we are concerned with a pattern of behaviour by the Minister of Home Affairs over a six-year period.”Speaker Trotman, yesterday, said that he had sought legal advice concerning a no confidence motion against Rohee by the parliamentary Opposition, which was passed in July.According to Trotman, based on the advice he received, the Home Affairs Minister cannot be prevented from moving the motion at the level of the National Assembly.The advice the Speaker obtained, mirrors that which was offered by Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall, when the motion was initially brought to the National Assembly.According to the Attorney General, when that no confidence motion was passed three months ago, he informed the parliamentary opposition that they had no power in the National Assembly to oust the Minister.“I said they had no power to compel the President to revoke Mr. Rohee’s appointment and that they had no power to interfere with Mr. Rohee’s right to function, in terms of him being a Minister and an executive officer in the National Assembly.”In fact, Nandlall deemed the motion “futile and impotent. They ignored me and proceeded to impede the Minister from functioning.”The Attorney General opined, too, that the Speaker at the last sitting of Parliament had indicated that he would have sought legal advice outside of that offered by him. Nandlall boasted that the advice received from two other lawyers is not only identical to each other but are identical to his.“The opinions said exactly what I said,Jerseys From China, that the National Assembly has no power whatsoever to interfere with the Minister’s capacity to function as an elected member of the National Assembly and as a Minister of the government.“Consequentially, an attempt by the National Assembly to interfere with the minister’s ability to function in fact constitutes a violation of the doctrine of separation of powers,nfl jerseys authentic china,” Nandlall added.However, Granger is optimistic that more can still be done on the part of the opposition to achieve its mission since according to him “if you listen carefully to the Speaker’s ruling, he points out that there are still avenues open to the opposition.“We will bring a motion to strengthen the resolution that we passed at the end of July,Wholesale Jerseys USA, so we are confident and we will continue to act in the interest of the public.”According to the Opposition Leader, “We will continue to ensure that Mr. Clement Rohee is not allowed to speak to this House as Minister of Home Affairs.” Granger also asserted that although the parliamentary opposition has recognised that it has no authority to ensure the revocation of Rohee’s appointment, it will not cease efforts to highlight that “he is incompetent to perform the functions of Minister of Home Affairs in this House…we are not going to allow him to do so.”“Our concern is with a single Minister, Mr. Clement James Rohee, and his performance as Minister; his responsibility for public security,” Granger said. “No person on either side of this House believes that public security is in good hands and that is the ultimate principle.”
