[www.inewsguyana.com] – The 11th Parliament is set to be convened on Wednesday, June 10, but the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) is yet to indicate whether or not it will be taking part in the National Assembly and represent the 49% of the electorate that voted for the Party.
Minister of State in the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph Harmon however is insisting that the PPP/C still has an opportunity to do what is right by representing the persons that voted in favour of them in the May 11 General and Regional elections.
Harmon says he hopes that “better sense will prevail and that they will understand the importance and duty of taking up their seats in the National Assembly.”
According to him “it is not too late to do so now, even if they miss the First Sitting, they can catch the second one.”
The Minister reaffirmed that the APNU+AFC Government stands ready to work with members of the PPP/C indicating noting that “the cooler heads” of the Party should be able to realize the importance of them going to the National Assembly.
He explained the broader picture that the PPP/C must realise that “thousands of people voted for them, and it is their duty to see that these people are represented in the National Assembly, since they are not representing a personal right, but a ‘representative’ right.” [Extracted and edited from [GINA]
