PRIME Minister Rick Houenipwela says he has no time for political gambling.

The Prime Minister was responding to a front page article in the Island Sun on Tuesday which claimed that a senior government minister is masterminding a plot to topple the Hou-led administration.

“My Government is intact and I enjoy the confidence and support of all my Cabinet members.

“While there may be certain elements outside Cabinet intent on driving a wedge between the group, I am not deterred by such ill-fated actions by desperate individuals,” he said.

The Prime Minister said he remains focused on achieving his Government’s policy goals within a short period of time and he has no time to waste.

“Any attempts to dampen our aim to achieve our priority goals is a strategy by people with political agendas. We have no time for selfish political interests,” the Prime Minister said.
