Scandal Erupts Shocking parliamentary walkout over controversial Speaker appointment sparks political turmoil in Jamaica.

In a dramatic turn of events, members of the Jamaican Labour Party (JLP), led by Prime Minister Andrew Holness, stage a walkout during the Budget Debate as Opposition Leader Mark Golding criticizes the controversial appointment of Juliet Holness, the Prime Minister’s wife, as Speaker of the House. Golding’s remarks on transparency and accountability ignite tensions, leading to a heated exchange between the Opposition and Government MPs.

Golding’s assertion that Juliet Holness’ appointment lacks independence, especially following the resignation of former Speaker Marissa Dalrymple-Philibert due to Integrity Commission scrutiny, stirs controversy within the chambers. He emphasizes the traditional role of the Speaker as independent from the government, underscoring the importance of upholding parliamentary norms.

However, his comments are met with vehement opposition from Government MPs, who vehemently defend the appointment. Amidst shouting and chaos, Prime Minister Holness expresses his disapproval, labelling Golding’s remarks as “low and desperate.” Subsequently, Government MPs stage a mass walkout, leaving the chamber in uproar.

The confrontation escalates as Deputy Speaker Heroy Clarke struggles to maintain order, ultimately leading to the premature adjournment of the session due to a lack of quorum. Golding’s intended discourse on governmental transparency is abruptly halted, highlighting the deep-rooted divisions within the Jamaican Parliament.
