ST. JOHN’S – The Honourable Member of Parliament Dr Ingrid Buffonge has resigned from the ruling party.
Dr Buffonge confirmed to Discover Montserrat on Friday afternoon that she had called the Honourable Premier Donaldson Romeo to inform him that she no longer held any confidence in his ability to lead the Government of Montserrat.
“There are multiple reasons why I have made this decision,” said Buffonge, who received the second highest number of votes in the September 2014 elections behind the premier.
Only recently on radio, the parliamentarian who is a physician hinted at possible restructuring in the People’s Democratic Movement (PDM). However, in a recent press conference, Premier Romeo said any issues they were experiencing were being handled internally.
“I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders,” she told Discover. “I am not into bad relationships.”
The PDM Government recently celebrated its first year in office amid rumours of discord among the current members.
ZJB News is also reporting that the Honourable Parliamentary Secretary Gregory Willock, another member of the PDM  has informed the premier that he no longer wishes to hold that post.

You leaving the Government does not help your district, and Montserratians on a whole.
