MNA Manoo resigns


A communiqué from the Parti Lepep secretariat, said that Dr Manoo yesterday tendered his resignation to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Patrick Herminie, in accordance with article 81 (b) of the Constitution of the Republic of Seychelles.

The communiqué said that party leader, President James Michel, has thanked Dr Manoo for his contribution to the political life of the country and his constituents, noting that the resignation was “in the interest of all parties concerned”.

On Tuesday, Dr Manoo made a personal declaration in the National Assembly in relation to an intimate video of him circulating among the public.

While acknowledging that the video was made five years ago, he nevertheless expressed his regret about the situation and stressed that the fact that the video was today in the public domain was none of his doing.

In his statement before the National Assembly, Dr Manoo expressed his regret that these materials are now circulating in public and apologised to all who might have been affected in one way or another by it.
