NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Tempers flared in the House of Assembly yesterday with both the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly lashing out at party leaders.
A shouting match between Deputy Speaker of the House of Assembly Don Saunders and Opposition Leader Philip Davis saw the Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador MP escorted out of Parliament during the evening session.
Davis rose to his feet to take issue with Saunders’ treatment of Englerston MP Glenys Hanna-Martin, who was seeking to raise a point of order but was asked to stand down.
The Opposition Leader was denied but refused to sit down and got into a shouting match with Saunders, who stood to his feet several times to ask for Davis to be escorted from the Lower Chamber.
Hanna-Martin opted to leave with him in solidarity.
Outside the House of Assembly, Davis said the opposition will not allow the deputy speaker, the speaker, or the government to silence opposition members.
