[www.inewsguyana.com] – Opposition Parliamentarian and Shadow Finance Minister Carl Greenidge has vowed that any agreement signed by the Government during this period of the prorogation of Parliament will not be recognized when the Parliament is recalled.

He said the administration is most certainly going to use the time it has bought to fill the pockets of colleagues and associates; but assured that the highest level of scrutiny will be employed when the House reconvenes.

“Let the international agencies and the foreigners and responsible corporate entities in Guyana know that they are in the presence of a pyre of a government and for as long as the government has that status, any agreement that the government signs with them will be reopened,” Greenidge told the House filled with Opposition Members of Parliament along with the Speaker and the Clerk of the National Assembly.

President Donald Ramotar, by way of proclamation, suspended the Parliament this morning ahead of a debate on the No Confidence Motion brought against his administration by the Opposition.

The Shadow Finance Minister is fearful that the administration will use the total of six months to enrich itself and associated business with the country’s resources and will look to give out Broadcast and Gold Mining Licenses along with Land Grants to associates.

He believes that a lot of agreements being done by the government are being negotiated and implemented with a lot of misdemeanors and fraud and no transparency associated with some of these agreements.

“Let those persons know, who are seeking to get benefits from a government who is improperly appropriating funds that are not its own, let them be warned,” Greenidge said; adding that “We should not be disheartened… because we are not without tools at our disposal,” Greenidge told his colleagues.

He says all motions against the government and its Ministers, including the No Confidence Motion, will be brought back by the Assembly as soon as the President recalls the House.

“Whenever we come back we will take up these issues,” he said.

Greenidge said this administration has been faced with a series of scandals, each of which would have brought down the government in any democratic state.

“Yet today in a cowardly bid to avoid the heat that is the result of their misdemeanors, the government has sought to use the powers within the constitution to exercise the sanction enshrined in the constitution for the legislator.”

He said the motion was not brought against the government for any single reason.

  2. I am a fan of Mr Greenidge but yesterday he made a racist remark about Indians and Chinese investors. He insinuated that his party would block any “dealings” or projects / investments from these two groups of people. This was uncalled for Mr Greenidge. You once worked for an international organization and served people from all over the world. You were a world public servant and can’t be speaking like this to Guyanese. Indian and Chinese are part of the genetic makeup of Guyana so this statement will not go down well with many people.

    I note you tried to do better later in your speech by using the word “foreigner” a term some (including myself) can live with.
