[www.inewsguyana.com] – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) is calling on all Guyanese to join them on Friday November 14 at 4:30 pm at the Square of the Revolution, to rally for the restoration of democracy.
The rally is in response to President Donald Ramotar’s decision to prorogue Parliament.
A media release from the APNU noted that the main speaker will be Leader of the Opposition, David Granger, while there will also be presentations by representatives from the Alliance for Change (AFC), the Guyana Action Party (GAP), the National Front Alliance (NFA), religious and civic leaders.
According to the APNU, “President Donald Ramotar and the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) minority have never accepted the will of the majority. They used every means in and out of the National Assembly to obstruct good governance. The PPP/C’s tactics included the willful expenditure of funds which had been disapproved; the non-compliance with resolutions and the non-assent to certain bills which had been passed and challenging the authority and autonomy of the National Assembly in the High Court.”
The Opposition Party noted that it will not accept the “PPP/C’s denial of democracy. APNU will not tolerate the PPP/C’s disregard for the integrity and independence of the National Assembly and its continued non-compliance with the Constitution, especially with regard to the compulsory conduct of local government elections.”
According to the APNU, “President Ramotar has insulted the entire nation with his menacing remarks and his prorogation of the Parliament of Guyana. The President has no grounds for his crude intrusion into the domain of parliamentary independence and for flouting the Constitution.”
