[www.inewsguyana.com] – Presidential Adviser on Governance, Gail Teixeira has condemned the statements made by Opposition Members in Parliament, stating that some of the utterances were distasteful, unacceptable and can be seen a threats to the Head of State.
Following the President’s proclamation to prorogue Parliament, the combined Opposition reacted with shock at the decision and expressed their desire to challenge it.
Teixeira and Prime Minister Samuel Hinds appeared on the programme: ‘The 10th Parliament and the way forward’ on the National Communications Network last evening.
The Government’s Chief Whip said the events that followed the President’s proclamation came as no surprise, but were all alarming.
Teixeira said that APNU’s Carl Greenidge’s reference to King Charles I, losing his head for proroguing parliament, is a subliminal message, and it is one that should not be taken lightly.
Greenidge went on to warn that investors should not look forward to his Party’s support for any agreement made during the period of prorogation.
According to Teixeira, this statement is very irresponsible coming from a Party which is always condemning the government saying that it is not doing enough.
She questioned the statement, nothing that such a comment can be seen as a threat to potential investors who are interested in investing in Guyana with the aim of building the local economy.
She, as well as the Prime Minister, condemned the protest action that took place outside of the public building saying that the combined Opposition has suggested that the President’s decision can be seen as one to provoke violence, but their actions tell a different story.
The Prime Minister said he is optimistic that that the situation will force open dialogue, but this would be the best way forward. However, he noted that if this avenue is not explored, then he is confident that the Guyanese people who have been looking on will be the judge. [Extracted and modified from GINA]
