[www.inewsguyana.com] – Representatives of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) led by the Leader of the Opposition, David Granger today met with diplomats from the United States of America, Britain, Canada, and the European Union to discuss President Donald Ramotar’s decision to prorogue Parliament.
A media release from the APNU noted that the meeting was requested by the diplomats, where the APNU iterated its position that there will be no extra parliamentary engagement with the President on the matters which were before the National Assembly.
The APNU informed the foreign diplomats that the Party will embark on a series of measures dedicated to the restoration of the National Assembly as the most appropriate venue for the discussion and consideration of affairs of the state and the people.
“The American, British, Canadian, and European Union diplomats all seem to favour an early end to the prorogation,” the APNU release noted.
Present at today’s meeting were Charge d’Affairs of the United States Embassy, Mr. Bryan David Hunt; British High Commissioner, Mr. Andrew Ayre; Canadian High Commissioner, Dr. Nicole Giles; and European Union Ambassador to Guyana, Mr. Robert Kopecky.
