“Yellow Man” Fate in Hands of Speaker, President, Chairman

“Yellow Man” Audinett’s role inside the House of Representatives may seem minor to some. But it is a solemn responsibility and his actions on May seventeenth have led to calls for his removal.  Already, the press has requested that he be banned from future meetings of the Senate Special Select Committee after threatening a cameraman and grabbing for a reporter’s cell phone.  Will Chairman Aldo Salazar; Speaker Laura Longsworth; and Senate President Lee Mark Chang take heed? Leader of Government Business Godwin Hulse told us they must—not the courts or other venues—determine Audinett’s fate.

“I know that that question has been asked over and over, but my simple answer is the command and the control of the National Assembly, under the Standing Orders, falls within the purview of the Speaker and falls within the purview of the President when it is the Senate. The Chairman acts on behalf of the President; and consequently, whatever the Chairman does with respect to that, that is a done deal and that is the end of that. It’s not the purview of the courts, or it’s not the purview of any other institution. And that is why the Standing Orders, which people hear so much about, are rules to govern conduct in the precincts of that building.”

    The Speaker, the Chairman and the President are Dean’s lapdogs. WE demand that the PM remove this man as Macebrearer
