[www.inewsguyana.com] – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance for Change (AFC) met on Wednesday last, at the Office of the Opposition Leader, where they discussed the early resumption of sittings of the National Assembly.
A media release from the APNU noted that in view of the fact that the official recess ended on October 10 and there has been no indication of the date for the next sitting, the meeting is not just desirable but necessary in the public interest.
The APNU was represented by its leader, David Granger, Dr. Rupert Roopnarine, Mr. Basil Williams, Mr. Carl Greenidge, Ms. Amna Ally, Mr. Joseph Harmon and Mr. Winston Felix.
The AFC was represented by leader Mr. Khemraj Ramjattan, Ms. Cathy Hughes and AFC General Secretary, Mr. David Patterson.
Opposition Chief Whip, Amna Ally recently told iNews that the government is “buying time” by not setting a date for Parliament.
The AFC was hoping to debate the No Confidence Motion against the government this month after Parliament came out of recess on October 10.
During a telephone interview with iNews earlier in the week, Ally expressed her frustration with the constant back and forth between herself and government Chief Whip, Gail Teixeira.
Ally accused Teixeira of being “very difficult” as she has rejected several dates proposed by the Opposition for the sitting of the National Assembly.
“I am fed up with this, I am done with it. She’s [Teixeira] not coming up with a date, she’s buying time or something; I don’t know what the hell it is,” the Opposition Chief Whip told iNews.
