(www.inewsguyana.com) – The Alliance for Change (AFC) has this afternoon written to the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sherlock Isaacs demanding that the no confidence motion against the government be debated on October 16.
In a letter from the mover of the motion, Moses Nagamootoo to the Clerk and posted on the party’s General Secretary David Patterson’s Facebook page, the AFC is insisting that its motion be given priority above all other business.
According to the letter: “Now that the National Assembly has come out from recess…I’m kindly asking that you place the aforesaid Motion on the Order Paper as a matter of priority to take precedence over all other business of the House for debate at the earliest Sitting that I expect to be on Thursday, the 16th day of October, 2014.”
This development comes hours after both the Clerk of the National Assembly and the main opposition party – APNU - told iNews that no date has been fixed for a sitting. However, the parliamentary management committee is due to meet next Wednesday to set a date for the post-recess sitting.
Today’s letter by the AFC is reportedly generating ” some level of uneasiness in the joint opposition” according to an APNU insider, who said the Party was unaware of the AFC’s letter being dispatched this evening.
