Dur­ing a spe­cial sit­ting of the house yes­ter­day when pre­sid­ing of­fi­cer Ab­by Tay­lor called for any oth­er nom­i­na­tions, oth­er than Dr Faith B Yis­rael, Mor­ris rose and said, ‘Duke’.

PNM (Peo­ple’s Na­tion­al Move­ment) Coun­cil­lor Petal Daniel-Benoit at­tempt­ed to sec­ond the mo­tion but that was de­nied as she is not an elect­ed mem­ber of the house.

Dr B Yis­rael was then elect­ed

Mor­ris said that while he made the rec­om­men­da­tion with the in­ten­tion of it be­ing a “light mo­ment”, it was not the PNM’s pol­i­cy to in­ter­fere in the af­fairs of oth­er par­ties.
