Home » NIA and Advocates Network Demand Immediate Action
In a stunning turn of events, the National Integrity Action (NIA) and the Advocates Network (AN) have issued an unequivocal demand for the immediate resignation of House Speaker Marisa Dalrymple-Philibert. The joint statement, released on a Wednesday evening, has sent shockwaves through the political landscape, as it calls for swift action following recent developments in Parliament.
Why NIA and Advocates Network Demand House Speaker’s Resignation
The two influential watchdog groups insist that Tuesday’s events in Parliament, in connection with Dalrymple-Philibert, were unacceptable and should never have occurred. They argue that it is fundamentally undemocratic for the speaker to preside over the hearing concerning a report on her own conduct. This report, originating from the Integrity Commission (IC), has led the Director of Corruption Prosecution to recommend multiple charges against her, allegedly stemming from actions between 2015 and 2021.
Furthermore, the groups assert that the speaker’s decision to forward the report to the Ethics Committee of Parliament, a committee she chairs, is a grave error. They argue that there are established precedents where individuals under investigation or facing criminal charges have voluntarily stepped aside from their positions until investigations conclude.
This precedent has been set by notable figures like Minister Joseph Hibbert, Minister Kern Spencer, and Minister Richard Azan in the past.
The NIA and AN emphasize that these same standards must apply to the House speaker, highlighting the urgent necessity for a comprehensive code of conduct for parliamentarians. The statement underscores the importance of integrity as a guiding principle for politicians, emphasizing that they must lead by example and uphold the principles of good governance.
The House Speaker’s Controversy
At the heart of this controversy is the House speaker’s failure to declare a motor vehicle purchase, amounting to a staggering $6 million, in her annual statutory declarations submitted to the Integrity Commission over several years following the vehicle’s acquisition. Dalrymple-Philibert maintains that it was an oversight on her part, vehemently denying any deliberate false declarations.
