Seaga blasts Golding on Fri May 28, 2010 7:47 pm



Edward Seaga, former Prime Minister and Member of Parliament (MP) for West Kingston, has come out forcefully in support of calls for Prime Minister Bruce Golding to resign.

“It is my view that the Prime Minister should resign because he is showing day by day that he cannot cope,” he said in an interview with RJR News.

Seaga has described Golding's leadership as a major failure in respect of the contentious extradition issue and the related security incursion into Tivoli Gardens.

Edward Seaga's characterization of his successor at the helm of the Jamaica Labour Party was uncompromising.

“I have never known a Prime Minister to displace such lack of moral rectitude,” he said.

The former West Kingston MP was responding to the unfolding story of how residents of Tivoli Gardens and adjoining sections of his constituency were treated during this week's police/ military incursion into these communities.

He contended that the operation was an unnecessary outcome of the long drawn dispute over the American request for the extradition of Christopher "Dudus" Coke.

“The Prime Minister ought not to have interfered with the service of the warrant. That lead to Coke’s rejection of it and that led to the need to go and get Coke which led to the calling of the State of Emergency and the sending of troops down there and all the atrocities that are taking place,” Seaga said.

Edward Seaga served as MP for West Kingston for 43 years, and was succeeded by Mr. Golding in that constituency in 2005.

Now, he is suggesting that the Prime Minister if he intends to continue in politics should seek another seat, especially in light of this week's events.
