Why Lee Mark Made the Right Call on Refusing Privilege Motion

The Opposition senators’ attempt to stand up for what happened to the press on May seventeenth, during an ordinary meeting of the Senate, did not get very far. On Friday, Senators Eamon Courtenay, Paul Thompson and temporary member Michel Chebat tried to get the Upper Chamber to universally condemn the actions of known supporters of the U.D.P.  Senate President Lee Mark Chang shut down what he called a late attempt to introduce the motion and as far as Leader of Government Business Godwin Hulse is concerned, it was the right call.

“There is a process for raising matters; as I understand, the President said no, because the matter was confined to the Senate Inquiry, and not to the general proceedings of the Senate that day, and the President’s decision stands.”
