The Unionist Bloc on Causeway Coast and Glens Council unite to circumvent due process- Peacock
Sinn Féin group leader on Causeway Coast and Glens Council Cllr Leanne Peacock has said that the actions of the DUP, PUP and UUP at tonights full council meeting are inexcusable and they have united to entirely circumvent due process.
Cllr Peacock said,
“I was shocked that Councillors from the DUP, UUP and PUP have united to vote against even hearing the presentation of a complaint report that had been progressing through full council.”
“This investigation has been halted in its tracks before even reaching the full council chamber for presentation and discussion. “
“This not only erodes the public confidence in this Council to fully investigate their complaints but circumvents the Councils own complaints policy.
“There are serious questions to be answered over such a vote being taken and our own complaints policy not followed.”
“Sinn Féin will be moving to immediately call in this decision which was taken outside of process and without legal advice and proper debate.”
