[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of the Alliance for Change (AFC), David Patterson has confirmed October 16 as the date for the much anticipated debate on the No Confidence Motion against the government.

During a telephone interview with iNews today, Wednesday October 1, Patterson confirmed that the AFC met with the main Opposition – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) where APNU’s Leader, David Granger reiterated the Party’s support for the AFC sponsored No Confidence Motion.

Patterson explained that the National Assembly will resume on October 10 and the AFC will be moving to have October 16 as the date that its Executive Member, Moses Nagamootoo move the motion.

In his Facebook post today, Patterson said, “The end is near!! Just came out of a meeting with APNU – and they have GUARANTEED support for the AFC No Confidence Motion when Parliament reconvenes next week!! Mark this date October 16, 2014 – History shall be made!”

According to Patterson, the AFC is hoping that the motion will be debated on that date and that the meeting with the APNU today dealt with “options and hurdles” the Motion may face.

Meanwhile, when contacted by iNews, General Secretary of the APNU, Joseph Harmon said that the Party is clear in its support of the Motion. Although Harmon was not part of the meeting, he rubbished criticisms that the APNU is not committed to the motion.

He said the Party is equally committed to the motion as it is for the holding of Local Government Elections.

“We will support the motion once it comes on the floor,” Harmon told iNews.

Yesterday, Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman said the outcome of the pending No Confidence Motion cannot be anticipated, taking into consideration the many possibilities that surround it.

He alluded that one of those possibilities is that it could remain on the Order Paper for several months; awaiting a debate.

However, Harmon did not agree with this notion. He said that the Motion is a priority and will be treated as such.

  1. Leon pnc ruled illegally for like 24 years..of those 24 years name the year ppp created anarchy and got in power for it…if u cant then change your name from tel-ford to tell-lie haha GDF and GPF give their blood to PNC from day one…so dont try that..GDF was formed to keep your founding illega father Bunham in power just in case of PPP anarcy u talked trash about..come again yo

  2. These people do not see the crap on their doorstep. They are the epitome of bullyism, incompetence and backwardness.
    Dazzle you cannot get from a PNCite, but you can bet on lies and bullsheite.

  3. You will wear a bag over your silly and stupid head very soon.
    Your wishful moronic thinking will keep you in the hole.
    You are too blind to see progress.
    The only time elections were rigged was under your PNC
    The only time or times there were anarchy, you must know.
    Case in point Linden illegal protest.
    When backwardness was given out, people like you were rushing for front seat and first inline with outstretched begging hands..

  4. The PPP Govt of Guyana has to go. This will only be done through a process of no-confidence first, then General and LGE following. Enough is enough with the brutal, power-drunk arrogance of the PPP (un CIVIC). It will be a fitting anniversary present when the no-confidence motion come the bear. The wall will come tumbling down and the PPP is going to try anarchy. With that they will also fail. For now they have the support of the judiciary, GPF and GDF. As long as they lose the no-confidence motion the whole game changes.

  5. guyanese in the mood for no confidence when it comes to the floor but right now they want to hear about trotman and the buggered boy .when it was the real mcoy yall pnc people were dancing and trampling on peoples head . how come no word from you pnc about buggery

  6. Thank you for such an astute observation. Wow! And ‘October Surprise’ was a baseball term!! The PPP has to go before Guyana is gone!

  7. October has been a very important month for the PPP/C, since they claimed victory on Oct 5th. How ironical that a no-confidence motion will now be passed in the PPP/C victory month .

  8. General Secretary of the Alliance for Change (AFC), David Patterson has confirmed October 16 as the date for the much anticipated debate on the No Confidence Motion against the government.
