Rohee to be feature speaker at Grenada opposition party launch

Minister of Home Affairs Clement Rohee is slated to give the feature address at the launching of a new political party in Grenada over the weekend and he says that there is nothing wrong with him responding to an invitation.

He is to be the guest speaker at the first convention of the National United Front political party. General elections on the island are due in a matter of weeks.

“We have enjoyed relations with all types of parties in the Caribbean,” said Rohee, when asked whether or not he agreed with observers who said that he is acting inappropriately by speaking on the party’s platform.

“What’s wrong with that?” asked Rohee defiantly, when questioned by Stabroek News.

He insisted that he was invited to speak, noting that it would be ill-advised for anyone to show up to such an event without an invitation.

The embattled Minister of Home Affairs does not enjoy the confidence of the National Assembly since the passage of a no-confidence motion against him by the parliamentary opposition last year. Another motion to place a gag order on the Minister had been sent to the Committee of Privileges.
