Former Opposition Chief Whip and parliamentarian Gail Teixeira has officially renounced her Canadian citizenship, paving the way for the veteran politician’s return to the National Assembly and her Party’s candidate list.
Teixeira made this revelation on Monday, on the sidelines of the first day of the National Toshaos Conference at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre.
When asked, she informed INews that her documents were in fact finalised a couple months ago.
“I received my renunciation since June 26, 2019. My Canadian citizenship was renounced by the Canadian authorities. I was the first of the whole group. Everyone said they were going to, they were going to, but I was done,” she said.
Asked about a return to Parliament, where she has served for decades, Teixeira confirmed that she was thus cleared to return on the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) candidate list from whence potential Members of Parliament (MPs) are drawn.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
