The Alliance For Change announced today that its former Chairman, Attorney Raphael Trotman has resigned as a Member of the National Assembly.
His resignation takes effect from next week.
The AFC explained today that Mr. Trotman had indicated before the staging of the party’s National Conference that he would not be available for nomination as he would be resigning mid-term in the life of the present Assembly.
He said he wanted to allow for rotation and space for new leadership training.
The AFC said it is proud of the work that Trotman provided over the years as a valuable member of the party and a Member of Parliament in the National Assembly.
Mr. Trotman has served as a Member of the National Assembly continuously since 1998, first under the PNC then under the AFC and the APNU+AFC Coalition.
He was also elected the 10th Speaker of the National Assembly after the 2011 general elections which saw the combined Opposition holding a majority in the Assembly.
Although leaving the National Assembly, Mr Trotman who is one of the founding members of the AFC will remain a member of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the AFC.
Trotman mostly attended the current session of the National Assembly virtually and hardly made oral contributions during debate. He had recovered from an ailment that affected his voice.
