JACK Warner honoured his promise made at a public meeting at Pierre Road, Felicity last night and today resigned his last post - that of Member of Parliament for Chaguanas West.

Last Sunday, his resignation as National Security Minister was accepted by Prime Ministe Kamla Persad-Bissessar and the following day he resigned as chairman of the United National Congress.

Today's resignation letter was addressed to Speaker of the House Wade mark, and copied to Persad-Bissessar, who is in Canada, and Leader of Government Business Dr Roodal Moonilal.

A copy of the letter was emailed to media organisations, with the request that its contents not be released before 3.p.m. Warner is spending his last day in Parliament today, where he is expected to respond to a private motion filed by Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley who is raising issues related to Warner's conduct in government and while a member of FIFA.
