A VOTE of confidence motion in Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis passed the House of Assembly last night. A division of the House was not taken to show who exactly supported Dr Minnis and who did not, although the opposition called for such a vote. In bringing a no confidence motion, opposition leader Philip “Brave” Davis accused the prime minister of “knowingly, intentionally and deliberately” misleading the House by claiming Brent Symonette was not involved in discussions and negotiations over renting the Town Centre Mall to host the General Post Office when he was minister of immigration and financial services. After he resigned as minister, Mr Symonette, a part owner of the mall, revealed Dr Minnis called him to discuss the government’s plans to rent the mall before the resolution was brought to Parliament, an admission that appeared to contradict the resolution that was passed. Progressive Liberal Party MPs walked out of the chamber after standing in dissent to the resolution, angered that Mr Davis was not allowed by House Speaker Halson Moultrie to close the debate.
