Hon Neville A. Smith to set up D1 office in Fahie’s absence– Hon Malone

Hon Neville A. Smith to set up D1 office in Fahie’s absence– Hon Malone

Having no representative for the First District since the arrest of ex-Premier Hon Andrew A. Fahie in Miami in April, At-large Representative and Deputy Speaker Hon Neville A. Smith (AL) will now temporarily set up office in the district to bring representation to the people there.

This was revealed by Opposition Member and At-Large Representative, Hon Carvin Malone during the radio talk show ‘Talking Points with Violet Gaul’ aired on ZBVI 780AM on Monday, October 17, 2022.

“In a meeting recently concluded, it was announced that Honourable Neville Smith will set up office where he would be there for two days a week and I will continue to move in and out of the district, in terms of concerns, as I have been for the past time,” he said.

This means that for the district there will be a hybrid system where it will be represented both by Hon Smith and Hon Malone.

“But you must understand that we have four At-Large Representatives and each of the four could be called on, but Honourable Smith has been given the particular task, as you may well by now be aware, I moved over to the Opposition,” he said.

Opposition Member and At-Large Representative, Hon Carvin Malone (AL), right, during the radio talk show ‘Talking Points with Violet Gaul’ aired on ZBVI 780 AM on Monday, October 17, 2022, said he will also continue to give representation to the people of the First District.

Since his arrest in April 2022, Hon Andrew A. Fahie has been trying to maintain a grip on the First District seat through leave of absence to the House, despite his inability to attend HoA sittings in person.


Hon Malone to assist in D1


Hon Malone added, “So, in order that they'll have a voice in Cabinet, they have said to Hon Smith well, you know, we’ll like to set up office there and I would assist everywhere that I could,” he added.

Since his arrest in April 2022, Hon Fahie has been trying to maintain a grip on the First District seat through leave of absence to the House, despite his inability to attend HoA sittings in person.

Speaker Honourable Corine N. George–Massicote on July 19, 2022, indicated she will no longer accept apologies from Hon Fahie and denied him leave from the 5th, 6th and future Sittings of the HoA.

According to the HoA Standing Orders, Members who fail to attend sittings of the HoA without an approved notice of absence would have to vacate their seat after three consecutive absences in any one session.

It is unclear why the option of virtual appearance has not been extended to Hon Fahie.
