Sarah elected Deputy speaker after house adjourns

Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, the MP for Castries Centre, was elected Deputy Speaker of the House, after Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet requested a ten minute adjournment of the session.

When House Speaker, Leonne Theodore-John called for the appointment of  a Deputy Speaker, there was no response.

With no response after three attempts, Chastanet proposed an adjournment to facilitate discussion with opposition leader – Philip J. Pierre.

“No nomination appears to be forthcoming,” the Prime Minister declared before requesting the adjournment.

Chastanet proposed a ten minute break to facilitate a “brief” discussion with the leader of the opposition.

When the house reconvened afterwards, he rose to nominate Sarah Flood-Beaubrun after the Speaker posed the question again.

The nomination was seconded and Flood-Beaubrun was elected.

    I gotta Laugh at Sarah. She’s proven to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. No one can trust her. No one knows where her loyalty lies. She could be considered a Maverick. But even Mavericks have their cut-off point. Sarah is straight-up Gangster (Kinda Maverick) lol. So Te islands’ 3 Prime Ministers have decided to give her little space to maneuver for a purging, until they decide what to do next. But it will at someone’s expense. Lol.

      Exactly. it is very clear that she has been strategically placed in a position that is meant to keep her quiet as she cannot be trusted.
