[www.inewsguyana.com] – Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon has put his plan to proceed on retirement before the end of 2014 on hold, he told reporters on Wednesday.
Speaking after his post-Cabinet press briefing, he indicated that the move by the political Opposition to table and pass a no – confidence motion in the government has forced him to delay his retirement plans.
“My plan has certainly been altered by this no confidence motion and its likely outcome,” he stated.
Dr. Luncheon had planned to give up his role in government due to ill health. A few months ago, he had announced that he was suffering from cancer and had opted to not have any treatment administered.
“I may or I may not live up, both literally and figuratively, to this outcome of the no confidence motion, but if they have elections I would like to have the last opportunity to lay my wares out to the Guyanese public,” Dr. Luncheon said.
He added that if there are no early elections, then he will stick to his retirement plan.
