[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Alliance for Change (AFC) says it will set a new date for its National Congress after the National Assembly addresses the pending No Confidence motion against the Government.
The Party decided to postpone its Congress which was scheduled to take place on October 25.
A date is still to be announced for the reconvening of Parliament and the Party is demanding that its No Confidence motion be dealt with as a matter of national importance.
General Secretary of the Party, David Patterson in a press release stated that at the recent National Executive Committee meeting, it was anticipated that the No Confidence motion would have been debated either this week or at latest next week.
“Several of the agenda items at our scheduled National Conference were linked to a successful passage of the No Confidence vote,” Patterson said.
The Party added that its Congress has been rescheduled for a time no later than the first week in December 2014.
Among the items that are listed to be dealt with at the Party’s Congress is the election of a Presidential Candidate for the party. Four of the party’s senior members have been nominated for the post.
The Party’s Vice Chairman Moses Nagamootoo will be presenting the motion to the House when the National Assembly reconvenes. His colleague Cathy Hughes is expected to second the motion.
The main opposition Party, a Partnership for National Unity says it will support the AFC sponsored motion.
