[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) says it has not received any formal communication from the APNU+AFC government on the issue of unity talks between the two sides.

General Secretary of the Party, Clement Rohee told a news conference on Monday, September 21, 2015 that with the APNU+AFC now in a coalition and in government the distrust runs much deeper since Prime Minister, Nagamootoo and Minister of Public Security, Ramjattan are “renegades who defected from the PPP.”

According to Rohee, “the APNU+AFC must be aware that the PPP is in no way desperate to engage both the APNU+AFC. This will be tantamount to a double kiss of death for the PPP; a reality it cannot ignore.”

He said that the PPP has a significantly large following, which has expressed confidence and support in its current leadership.

“The PPP now the opposition party has to exercise due care and attention in respect to any formal engagement with the APNU+AFC outside of Parliament. Cooperation within the parliamentary structure and arrangements cannot be avoided but engagement with the APNU+AFC outside of Parliament is clearly political and there is no guarantee that agreements reached will find their way in the appropriate body to make them legally binding,” Rohee told reporters.

The General Secretary alleged that there is much confusion in the APNU+AFC camp and suggested that the Coalition settle their internal differences and “put their house in order before any attempt is made to engage the PPP.”

Rohee reminded that the PPP cannot ignore “nor sweep under the carpet all the historical experiences the Party has accumulated with the PNC of which Granger is the political leader and his party being the dominant political force in the APNU.”

  1. Side Kick, you haven’t seen the real thieves yet, wait and u will see the incompetent thieves in this de-facto administration. I think you are delusional to the fact, these are some of the same thieves ala the old Burnham dictatorship.

  2. WHEN THE AUDITS ARE COMPLETED THERE WILL BE NO CHARGES , SIDE KICK ……. I’M VERY SORRY , THE ONLY CHARGES WILL BE THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS CHRISTOPHER RAM AND HIS BOYS WILL DRAW FROM THE PEOPLE’S MONEY, AND THIS FOR ENGAGING IN A TOTALLY USELESS EXERCISE …. TOO BAD FOR THE TAXPAYERS OF THIS COUNTRY. SIDE KICK, THE FACTS WILL COME OUT ON WHO ARE THE REAL THIEVES….WAIT FOR THE COMPLETION OF THE ELECTIONS PETITION AND YOU’LL FIND OUT HOW THE COALITION THIEF A WHOLE GOVERNMENT. PERHAPS YOU ALREADY KNOW IT OR MAYBE YOU WERE PART AND PARCEL OF THE WHOLE AFFAIR . WHO KNOWS ?

  3. Why is the Gov’t so preoccupied with an issue everyone knows is a total waste of time ?. They honestly think they ( Gov’t) can change the PPP . Only God Almighty can…..Stop playing God .!

  4. This is starting to look like a nasty and sick joke . The Gov;t is too preoccupied with this issue . Only God Almighty can change PPP. ….More importantly the Gov;t should focus on “Cleaning House” and correcting all the wrong spilled on the nation for twenty three years by these same bastards. Ease up with this and they, if morphed into patriots , will fall in line

  5. Side Kick tell us what the PNC did for 28 years in Government. Dr Jagan should have jailed all of them when he won the election 23 years ago.

    This APNU+AFC=PNC Coalation is no different from your old PNC. They are just under disguise hence have used the two idiots (Naga & Jattan) to gain power through the back door.

  6. If you think the coalition govt. has too many internal issues ask your friends in the PPP about theirs. Rumor is that there are now two factions. The coalition has no business dealing with these dishonest people. These people are thieves.

  7. Good riddance, the coalition does not need to be talking to thieves. Complete the audits and then lay charges against those miscreants who have been pilfering the peoples’ money. The Nation is crying out for justice.

  8. Correct. Totally support PPP with their stance on this issue.

    PPP, you do not have anything to worry about. Please continue to address issues within the parliamentary frame works. This Coalation Government has too many internal issues. They cannot be trusted.
