By Aaron Humes: Wrapping up the debate on the Domestic Violence Motion, 2022, Leader of Government Business Senator Eamon Courtenay indirectly, though no less gravely, warned that former Leader of the Opposition and Collet area representative Patrick Faber could be at risk of losing his seat in the House of Representatives.

Faber continues to cling to his position as Leader of a badly fractured United Democratic Party after his recent run-in on allegations of common assault and damage to property, charges which he denies and which were dropped by the victim.

But Courtenay stated he should pay attention to section 121 of the Constitution concerning the Code of Conduct of public officials which includes members of the National Assembly and which charges them, among other things, to “conduct themselves in such a way as not… (d) to demean their office or position; (e) to allow their integrity to be called into question…”

“What is the Honorable Member in the other House going to do? We call for action. We will wait to see what the Honorable Member is going to do. He has already achieved a withdrawal of criminal prosecution. It is not enough,” Courtenay said.

Faber, for his part, has already ruled out resignation from the House which would trigger a by-election. In addition, the eighteen-month time limit that would trigger a recall mechanism has not yet elapsed and as such a recall is not possible at this time.
