No – Confidence Motion included in packed Nov. 10 Order Paper; debate likely



By Kurt Campbell

Parliament[] – The Alliance for Change (AFC) sponsored No – Confidence Motion against the incumbent has been included in what could be termed a ‘jam – packed’ November 10 Order Paper, Clerk of the National Assembly Sherlock Isaacs has confirmed.

The Clerk sent notices to all Parliamentarians this morning (Wednesday, November 05), confirming that the much anticipated first sitting of the House, following the end of the Parliamentary recess on October 10, will be held next Monday.

He told iNews during a telephone interview that the Order Paper for November 10 was a “long” one.

Several reports are to be presented to the House on that day, including the Auditor General’s Report which will be presented by the Speaker and several others to be presented by Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment, Robert Persaud; Minister of Finance, Dr. Ashni Singh and Minister of Housing, Irfaan Ali along with Members of the Oppositions.

There are some 19 questions on the Order Paper for Ministers which will be followed by several Bills slated for first readings. These include: The Food Safety Bill 2014 and the Motor Vehicles Insurance Third Party Risk Assessment Bill.

There are also several Bills slated for second reading, which once done, will see the immediate commencement of a debate. Those Bills include: The Customs Amendment Bill and the Land Surveyors Bill.

After all these issues are addressed, then the No – Confidence Motion is likely to be looked at along with the Broadcasting Amendment Bill.

The Clerk made it clear that the Motion filed by the Opposition and published last Monday, seeking to amend the Standing Orders was not included in this Order Paper.

The President has already warned the Opposition that should it seek to push aside the government’s business to go ahead with a debate on the No – Confidence Motion, then he will be forced to dissolve Parliament, in keeping with his constitutional right.

Once this is done, it means that Guyanese will be heading to the polls to elect a new government and put an end to what many have said is an unhealthy situation in the House where the Opposition holds a one seat majority.

If all voters have are the PPP and PNC, Guyana done. Now, you said ‘definitely can’t be AFC’, but did not find fault with it, and that may be because it is the only party that has the PPP back up against the wall!
