In a media release, Jack Warner said: "Sharma's resignation offer and the acceptance of his resignation by the Prime Minister conform with the requirements of the Westminster traditions and of other respected democracies where ministers who engage in conduct - whether in public or in private life - that bring the government into disrepute are required to resign or to be fired."
He added, "We call on all right-thinking civic minded citizens to hold on to their values and to keep hope alive that righteousness will prevail in our beloved country.
"We also call on all citizens to be bold and courageous and to report to the relevant authorities any information they possess with regard to misconduct in office by holders of public office.
"Indeed a nation can only have the kind of government it is willing to create and we can do this by demanding proper conduct and performance from our public officials."
