Opposition leader Jamale Pringle expressed frustration over the lack of progress in securing an office space for his duties.

He emphasized that the leader of the opposition’s office is a constitutional position and should be treated with urgency by the government.

“It has been roughly little over a year now that the leader of the opposition has no office to perform his duties,” Pringle stated.

He highlighted that despite making several calls for a remedy, the issue has not received the urgent attention it deserves.

Pringle revealed that he had reached out to various authorities, including the clerk and the Ministry of Works, to address the problem. However, he expressed disappointment that the matter has not been resolved promptly, hindering his ability to function effectively in his role.

Responding to Pringle’s concerns, Works Minister Maria Browne acknowledged that efforts had been made to find a suitable office space for the opposition leader.

She explained that two options had been presented, both located in St John’s and within a quarter-mile of the existing building.

However, Browne noted that Pringle had declined both options.

“I’m not sure his reasonings, but he just declined altogether,” Browne stated.

She reassured the parliament that the matter was receiving attention and that efforts were ongoing to find a suitable location for the opposition leader’s office.
