[www.inewsguyana.com] – Nominated Members of Parliament for the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) arrived in the National Assembly for the seventh sitting of the 11th Parliament on Monday, August 17.
Led by Bharrat Jagdeo, the PPP members made their way into the National Assembly without much fanfare and pomp.
Jagdeo was officially sworn in as Opposition Leader and the other PPP members were sworn in as Parliamentarians.
Since the commencement of the 11th Parliament, the PPP has been absent from the House as a form of protest against the results of the May 11 General and Regional Elections.
The members include Former Public Service Minister Jennifer Westford, who is currently at the centre of a $600M probe being carried out by the Guyana Police Force and Former Health Minister Dr Bheri Ramsaran, who is currently before the courts for assaulting women rights activist, Sherlina Nageer.
Those in the front bench include, Irfaan Ali, Clement Rohee, Frank Anthony, Gail Teixeira, Anil Nandlall and Jagdeo. Among the back-benchers are, Ganga Persaud, Yvonne Pearson, Alistair Charlie and Dr Clive Jagan. [Jomo Paul]
