Pie Chart[www.inewsguyana.com] – A large number of iNews participants is in favour of the Opposition’s call for a no confidence vote against the People’s Progressive Party government.

The Poll question was: “Do you support the Opposition parties’ call for a no-confidence vote on the Government?” to which over 10, 400 persons voted.

Seventy two percent voted yes, 28 percent voted no and 42 persons were undecided.

The Alliance for Change (AFC) recently stated that it will bring a no confidence motion against the government over the alleged illegal spending of Finance Minister, Dr Ashni Singh.

However, to date, there is no draft on the proposed motion as the National Assembly is scheduled to meet on Thursday, July 10.

Opposition Leader, David Granger says he is yet to see the draft. Updating the media on a meeting between his Parliamentary Coalition – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) – and the AFC on Thursday, Granger said it was merely to get information on the proposal by the AFC.

“I have not yet seen a motion, I don’t know if there is a motion, I don’t know if it has even been drafted,” Granger told reporters at a news conference on Friday, July 04.

When contacted, an executive member of the AFC confirmed with iNews that the motion has not been drafted.

According to the AFC Executive, the motion is still under consideration. “We are still meeting with stakeholders and having discussions but in terms of a final draft to be presented in the House, there is no such thing,” the AFC member said.



  1. The poll was not clear and may not portray the true intent and purposes. I voted but my vote is to keep the Government. I could have voted yes for the same reason to boot the opposition out.
    By having new elections, the PPP/C have the best chance of winning a majority Government.
