[www.inewsguyana.com] – The ruling People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPPC) is of the view that the threat of a No Confidence motion by the Alliance for Change [AFC] is aimed at influencing delegates who will attend the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) upcoming congress.
The PPP in a statement today noted that the AFC has been losing support and its membership and as such they want to regain support at the expense of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU).
“We know that the AFC has been losing support and its membership is hemorrhaging badly, it wants to regain its support but this time at the expense of the APNU. Ramjattan’s no confidence motion is nothing but a smoke screen and is tantamount to a drowning man clutching at straws. Further the AFC, through its promotion of this motion, has reached the pinnacle of its deceptive and blackmail politics, arrogantly being perpetrated against the Guyanese people.”
The Party reiterated that they remain resolute and prepared for any election that may be precipitated by a no-confidence motion.
“We repeat the PPP is ready and mobilized,” the statement noted.
The AFC has made it known to President Donald Ramotar that the Party has no other alternative but to lay the motion, after alleging that Finance Minister, Dr Ashni Singh continues to spend the country’s money illegally.
The motion will only be passed in the National Assembly if it is supported by the APNU. The APNU, however is yet to clearly state whether they will support such a motion.
