Estephane: “I was picked on!”

Minister for Youth Development and Sports, Edmund Estephane, claims that he was picked on during the last session of parliament.

Estephane spoke against the backdrop of rumours that there have been calls from the government side for the resignation of House Speaker, Leonne Theodore-John, for the way she dealt with elected members of the ruling party at the last sitting of the house, including a directive that Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, take his seat.

Theodore-Hohn this week denied being asked to quit.

Estephane  himself denied knowing anything about the resignation calls, saying that he first heard about the matter during a local radio programme.

He also denied that there was a rift between him and the Speaker of the House of Assembly.

“I think in my case in the house of assembly, I was picked on and made an example of which should never happen – it should never happen to anybody, whether it is me, whether it is  – whoever. It does not matter  what your colour, what your creed what your race, you should not be picked on and I was picked on,” Estephane declared, adding that he did not feel good about it.

The Dennery South MP expressed the view that there was little control over the proceedings during the last session of the house of assembly.

“There is not an issue. There is not a problem. Maybe everybody has to watch themselves and conduct themselves properly,” Estephane stated.
