Former Minister explains – No Confidence Motion

Radio Montserrat today reported that an anonymous former Minister of Government sought to explain the possible motives and outcomes of a Motion of No Confidence when tabled in Parliament.

TMR believes that the explanation should answer some of the many questions and clear up the various thoughts and opinions that have been aired over the past few days.

The announcer related as follows: “The former Minister who wishes to remain anonymous says from his knowledge, a No Confidence motion when it is tabled, is intended to give the Legislative Assembly, in the case of Montserrat, the opportunity to vote for or against such a motion.

He says the opportunity afforded members to indicate whether or not they support particular policies that are being challenged in the motion, or simply in the event the majority in the house is persuaded that the situation is bad enough that it needs the rightful action of voting against the Government.

The former Government Minister says, if the house majority w were to vote against the Government the result of that would have to be some changes in the leadership. He says these could be a change in leadership or the solution of having fresh elections.

The former Government Minister says the success of a motion in terms of indicating the public will depend on how the case is presented by the person who moves that motion. He says that with the presentation there is an opportunity to highlight and explain to the public the realities, risks and dangers of the kind of conduct and policies, and kind of actions, which have been challenged in the motion.

Whether the motion is defeated or not, provided the case is well presented, it will serve a very positive educational purpose. He concludes that the public goes along daily, seemingly oblivious to the myriad of challenges facing them and the record of no confidence motion will identify somebody having tried to point it out.
