Prime Minister Allen Chastanet Tuesday dumped cold water over any jubilation anyone may have had when allegations of the resignation of Public Service Minister Ubaldus Raymond surfaced last Friday afternoon.
The Prime Minister took reporters by surprise when he bluntly said “that’s not true” to a question by a reporter asking whether he had asked Raymond to resign.
To the question: So, the news reports that he had resigned are incorrect? Chastanet response was “Correct”.
Prime Minister Chastanet had at first declined to comment on the resignation but later gave in adding that an investigation is ongoing into the events that may have prompted reports of Raymond’s resignation.
“That’s why I’d rather not comment on it,” Chastanet said speaking of the investigation and allegations surrounding Raymond’s resignation.
