[www.inewsguyana.com] – Working People’s Alliance (WPA) Executive Member Tacuma Ogunseye is at odds with President David Granger and the Executive Committee of A Partnership For National Unity (APNU) over an apparent decision not to hold any in-house meetings before decisions were made with respect to post elections responsibilities and Ministerial appointments.
Ogunseye in a letter published in the local newspapers, stated that despite attempts by the WPA for a meeting to be held, this was not done.
“I feel very strongly that this matter which I allude to must be addressed publicly at this time. If it is not we will be setting a dangerous precedent that can have negative effects on our collective political aspirations,” said the WPA Executive.
He contended that in no civilised society are political factions that are engaged in an alliance with each other “treated with such disdain” adding “I find it hard to accept that the common courtesies and respect for comrades’ civil political relations dictate, in this case were not followed.”
However reports quote President Granger as having “regret that no meeting is held” and indicating that the APNU would have an in house meeting before May ends.
It should be noted that all of the Leaders of the Parties in the APNU have been appointed Ministerial portfolios.
WPA Leader Dr Rupert Roopnaraine has been appointed Education Minister – a ministry which now encompasses the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sport.
