MARCO City MP Greg Moss has announced that he will immediately resign from the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP), citing poor leadership as the reason for his decision.
His surprise announcement concluded his budget communication in the House of Assembly Monday evening after he chastised the Christie administration for failing to live up to the principles and ideals upon which the party was built.
“By the time I come back to this House Mr Speaker, you are going to be required to exercise your discretion under Rule 23 Sub 3 (of parliamentary rules) regarding the seating of members in this House because tonight I'm going to resign as a member of the PLP.
“I cannot continue with this party in the manner with which it is operating. That resignation (letter) will be with you tomorrow and to the leader of our party (and) to the chairman of the party. I strongly encourage the party to look not at window dressing but at changes.
“We clearly have a problem with leadership…both at the executive level and at a party level. I'll follow my conscience on this Mr Speaker and I will ask to be reseated.”
