PRESIDENT OF THE Senate, Sir Branford Taitt, says he will be returning to head the Upper Chamber when it resumes its final session of 2011 sittings next month.
He told the SUNDAY?SUN in an interview that in spite of rumours about his physical and mental condition, he was feeling well and planned to return to his job after his leave of medical absence since June.
“I’m very certain that my mind is clear. I don’t have a problem,” Sir Branford said.
“My doctor gave me leave from Parliament and I do not question his opinion. He didn’t say why he was putting me on leave. When I returned to him, he extended my leave by six weeks . . . . I believe I’m due to be back by the middle of next month.”
Sir Branford, who has presided over the Senate since 2008, also reported that during his period of leave, he had visited Jacksonville Memorial Hospital for a thorough physical examination.
“The specialist there decided I didn’t need a pacemaker. That was an issue we had to resolve when I went up there. So I don’t have a pacemaker and my doctors here are satisfied that I’m all right,” he explained.
