Parliament rules against COP

Wednesday, January 9 2008

Eight members of the Congress of the People (COP) could not enter Parliament on Monday wearing shirts with their party’s symbol of a series of circles because they are neither elected nor nominated members of the Lower and Upper Houses, Parliament officials said yesterday.

In response, attorney Prakash Ramadhar, one of the eight COP members who were denied entry into Parliament, said he could see “no logic” in this decision and said it begged the question about whether political party symbols should be worn in Parliament by anyone at all.

Ramadhar unsuccessfully contested the Caroni Central seat for the COP, which was won by the UNC Alliance’s Dr Hamza Rafeeq.
Parliament officials said the Parliament’s rules clearly state that no member of the public can enter the Red House wearing the insignia of any political party. They explained PNM and UNC parliamentarians (elected MPs and senators) are allowed to wear party emblems such as balisier ties and rising sun pins because they are elected and nominated Members of Parliament.

Told about this yesterday, Ramadhar said he understood the rationale for not politicising what goes on inside the Parliament Chamber because the essence of Parliament is to deal with the people’s business as opposed to satisfying partisan interests.

However, Ramadhar questioned whether the parliamentarians, who proudly display the insignia of their parties at every sitting, were representing the people who elected them or their parties political agendas.
