Parliamentary Representative for Castries South East Guy Joseph has called on house speaker Peter Foster to apologize over an exchange on Tuesday, which resulted in him being asked to finish his speech.
The incident occurred during debate on a motion concerning the Laborie Banse Road project.
The confrontations started over interpretation of the defects liabilities period and went on for several minutes.
Joseph had questioned the relation between Alison Gajadhar and Rayneau Gajadhar as signatories to a contract that he offered to make available to the house.
The MP said that he was basically highlighting “the number of deficiencies that I saw in the document,” and was trying to establish whether there was a relation, between the two.
He said he did this in light of several accusations that has been levied against him and his family about contract disbursements, during his tenure as Minister of Communication and Works.
Joseph said rather than allowing the Prime Minister to give an explanation, the house speaker tried to do so on behalf of the government side instead.
The Castries South East MP maintains that the speaker was in no position to engage him in a debate, and to interpret law to him in the house and as such noted that Foster owes him an apology.
Joseph said Foster has interrupted him on several occasions before, but the fiery MP said this recent confrontation will not stop him from asking pertinent questions.
