Leader of Government Commissioner Sarah Wescot-Williams says there are no new developments pertaining to the call for Commissioner Louie Laveist to resign from the Executive Council.
Wescot-Williams made clear during the question and answer period at the end of the weekly Executive Council press briefing that she continued to expect that Commissioner Laveist would resign of his own accord.
"Commissioner Louie Laveist has indicated that he will tender his resignation and I expect that to take place," Wescot-Williams said.
She said she was aware of the fact that Laveist had been off-island for some time, but said there had been no further developments since his return.
Concerning the timeframe in which this statement regarding the resignation had taken place, Wescot-Williams said, when prompted, that it had come during one of the last meetings held with Laveist before his recent trip.
"Indeed it is not the first time that I have been told that he would, and it is not the first time that I have mentioned that I understood that he would, but I can safely say without wanting to commit myself to a date that it will happen shortly," Wescot-Williams said.
