[www.inewsguyana.com] – Leader of the Opposition, David Granger has expressed his desire to have the governing People’s Progressive Party removed from office; however Granger is yet to give a definitive position on the ‘No Confidence’ motion which was drafted by the Alliance for Change (AFC).
The motion against the government cannot be passed in the National Assembly without the support of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU).
“It would be desirable for them to be removed from office…by legal means available. The earlier they leave office, the better for the country,” the Opposition Leader said.
But despite expressing this desire, the motion was not up for discussion at the recently concluded 18th Biennial Congress of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) which Granger leads.
When questioned about this, Granger explained that the Party believes that having the Finance Minister appear before the Privileges Committee is the fastest way to have the matter dealt with.
He also listed a Police Complaint and the High Court as alternative measures to the No Confidence Motion.
Granger said he is yet to see this draft of the motion by AFC Leader, Khemraj Ramjattan. The successful passage of the motion in the National Assembly will trigger immediate national and regional elections, something which the government said it is ready to face.
