  • Sitting of Montserrat Legislative Assembly – Tuesday November 25th 2014

    26th November 2014

    The Montserrat Legislative Assembly held its first full legislative session on Tuesday 25th November 2014 following the September 11th general election.

    Hon. Speaker Sir Howard Fergus

    It was the second sitting of the local parliament since then with several members of the ruling People’s Democratic Movement(PDM) having their first experience of a full legislative session.

    The opposition benches in this parliament are occupied by Honourable Leader of the Opposition Reuben T Meade(MCAP) and Easton Joseph Farrell (MCAP).

    Tuesday’s lively session of the Montserrat Legislative Assembly was itself a study in the ‘cut and thrust’ of parliamentary debate.

    The session was characterised by a number of questions, challenges, responses and counter-challenges on a range of issues mainly pertaining to transparency on financial and governance issues.

    It saw the Honourable Speaker Sir Howard Fergus being kept fully engaged in presiding over the meeting by providing explanations on matters of parliamentary processes and procedures resulting from a number of interventions and challenges coming from both sides of the house.

    Also during Tuesday’s meeting, Honourable Member of the Legislative Assembly Ingrid Buffonge (PDM) was elected Deputy Speaker.
