Fraser doubles down on ‘motion of no-confidence’ threat

Fraser doubles down on ‘motion of no-confidence’ threat

Third District Representative Julian Fraser has re-issued a warning he made weeks ago that he stands ready, along with the rest of the parliamentary Opposition, to deliver on several motions of no-confidence in the House of Assembly (HOA) against the government.
Fraser, who had been taken to task by Premier Dr Natalio Wheatley about his earlier threat of disruption to the government’s agenda, reaffirmed his promise yesterday during the first sitting of the Fifth House of Assembly.

He assured that, not only is there the necessary competence among the Opposition’s ranks to deliver on his threat, but there is also a level of fortitude and determination to execute on that promise.

The veteran lawmaker made the remarks after speaking about a number of critical changes needed across the various communities as well as infrastructure improvements he said he and other Opposition members had campaigned on and wants to see coming from the government during its term in office.

“I said in our press conference that this Opposition has the capacity, the tenacity, and the will to move not one, not two, not three, but as many as necessary motions of no-confidence on the government as we have to in order to get these changes into effect,” said Fraser.

Fraser warned that if the Premier and his team turn a deaf ear to the Opposition’s cries and the things that are necessary in the territory, then those motions will come to fruition in the legislature.

He added: “It’s not something that we want to wake up in the morning, come to a [House] sitting to do, but it will happen if these things are not done.”

In the meantime, Premier Wheatley, while promising to work with all members of the HOA and the Opposition in particular, suggested that Fraser had now qualified his previous threats and thanked him for bringing clarity to the HOA.

“I’m grateful that my good friend, the senior member from the Third District cleaned up what he said earlier about votes of no-confidence,” said Premier Wheatley. “Because of course, we must focus our attention, not in bringing down a government, but in building up the BVI, and we can do that together. I’m confident.”
