KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Senators Christopher Tufton and Arthur Williams have rejected a certain term proposed by Senate President Floyd Morris in order to rejoin the Upper House.

Morris had proposed that the senators may re-take their seats but remain quiet.

But both Tufton and Williams say they have not agreed to the those terms.

Williams, after consultation with his attorney, Wentworth Charles, and Tufton vowed to raise his concerns at the motion for adjournment or at any opportunity he gets during the sitting.

However the Senate has not yet started.

The Senate usually begins at 10 a.m.

Last week, the Constitutional Court ruled that the Opposition Leader Andrew Holness was wrong when he submitted their undated, pre-signed resignation letters to the Governor General.
