Former Saint Lucia Prime Minister, Stephenson King, has described the situation with Doctor Ubaldus Raymond as unfortunate.

“I cannot account for Mr. Ubaldus Raymond’s behaviour or his actions,” King told reporters Tuesday.

“I think it is an unfortunate situation,and as I said earlier, the Prime Minister appoints cabinet ministers based on their integrity, their ability, their capability of performance and their commitment to national service and national development,” he explained.

“At that point when such a member is compromised, it is for the Prime Minister to review his decision and┬á determine whether that member can continue to serve,” King, who currently serves as Minister for Infrastructure, Ports, Energy and Labour in the Allen Chastanet led administration stated.

But he noted that there is a responsibility on the part of the member to determine ‘Am I fit to continue?’

“That is the conscious decision to be made as to his ability to continue,” King told reporters.

In an unexpected twist to the Doctor Ubaldus Raymond saga, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, after earlier telling reporters Tuesday that he had no comment on news reports that Raymond had resigned as Public Service Minister and a government Senator, later declared during the same interview that the reports were incorrect.

Multiple sources, quoted by several news outlets, had since Friday reported that Raymond had quit after portions of audio recordings of sometimes salacious conversations between a man and a woman with a Trinidadian accent, were posted on social media.

It is widely believed that the man is Raymond, who has been linked to nude photo scandal in the past.

On the recording, the male discusses matters pertaining to civil servants and recent industrial action here by teachers, asserting that civil servants are very lazy.
