Legislature Clerk

THA's Presiding Officer resigns

Dr. Denise Tsoiatfatt-Angus resigned from her position as Presiding Officer of the Tobago House of Assembly on Thursday.

Her resignation letter to the Assembly’s Legislature Clerk was leaked on social media before her 1:30 pm official announcement to the media.

Sources say Tsoiatfatt-Angus is making way to contest the position of the political leader of the People's National Movement (PNM) Tobago Council internal elections.

Chief Secretary Kelvin Charles made a similar move in January 2016, when he resigned as the Assembly's presiding officer.
