Shocking and Embarrasing!

Shocking and Embarrassing! That’s how Opposition Spokesperson on Justice Donna Scott Motley describes the tabling of the wrong emergency power regulations in Parliament on Tuesday.

Parliament is to meet this afternoon to revoke and retable the Regulations that will govern the State of Public Emergency currently in force in the parish of St. Catherine.

Dr. Chang, has launched an investigation into how the incorrect regulation was tabled.

In a statement from Jamaica House, Dr. Chang, noted that the error is regretted.

However, Mrs. Scott Motley warns that such actions can damage public trust in the legislative process.

She says all Parliamentarians must now work to rebuild that trust.
