[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Office of the President says it views with utter shock the latest public revelation by the Alliance for Change (AFC) Leader Khemraj Ramjattan that he has received information that the ruling People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) is attempting to “buy off” three Parliamentarians at $30M each to vote against the opposition sponsored no confidence motion.
According to a release from the Office of the President, “this startling disclosure follows a long line of reckless and baseless utterances emanating from the AFC.”
Office of the President says it rejects this outrageous allegation and challenges Ramjattan to disclose, forthwith and publicly, the names of these three Parliamentarians to which he makes reference and to further make a full and frank public disclosure of all or any information which he claims he has received in relation to this matter.
In addition, Office of the President says it also expects Ramjattan to lodge a report with the Guyana Police Force (GPF); furnishing the Police with the information he has received with a request to immediately commence an investigation since his allegations border on criminality.
The release went onto add, “The Office of the President holds firmly to the view that the AFC has become desperate and is obviously prepared to adopt strange postures and make wild and irresponsible statements in their quest to exaggerate their importance and standing.”
AFC’s executive member Moses Nagamootoo had also said today that the Party is proceeding with its plans and because of its stern position the PPP is having “political diarrhea.”
To this end, the administration says Nagamootoo’s statement about political diarrhea must therefore be situated in that context.
