APNU still unmoved on position of Amaila Project

Leader of the APNU, David Granger.

At a press conference today, Leader of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) David Granger says that his position is still the same on the Amaila Falls Hydropower Project.

According to Granger, the APNU is not prepared to support a project, which financial architecture is likely to condemn Guyanese to excessive indebtedness.

The Party sought to justify its non support of the project in the National Assembly by stating that no comprehensive document on the Amaila Falls was ever presented foer debate in the House.

“The Partnership found it impossible to give its unequivocal support for a project when only two peripheral matters had been presented for debate.”

As a result of the non support from the APNU, the project’s main investor – Sithe Global – withdrew, leaving it in a state of jeopardy.

According to Granger, the Party’s position will remain the same unless the President has something “new” to provide, as it relates to the project.
