[www.inewsguyana.com] – Leader of the Opposition and Chairman of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), David Granger says the combined Parliamentary Opposition intends to go ahead with the No Confidence Motion against the government when the National Assembly reconvenes on Monday, November 10.
In a prelude to ‘Hard Talk’ radio programme, set to be aired on iRadio 90.1 Love FM on Sunday, November 09, the Opposition Leader made it clear that the public is weary of the People’s Progressive Party government.
“Most recently we’ve seen ‘Anil Gate’ and the public is fed up, the people are fed up with the behaviour of senior ministers,” Granger told host of the programme, Chris Chapwanya.
He was referring to the recent revelation of a taped telephone conversation between Attorney General, Anil Nandall and senior Journalist of the Kaieteur News, Leonard Gildarie.
Meanwhile, President Donald Ramotar has threatened to dissolve/prorogue Parliament if the Opposition forces the Motion on Monday on the basis that there are other matters of urgent importance that needs to be dealt with.
In response, Granger said, “If other matters were so urgent why wait from the 10th of October to the 10th of November?”
He believes the President is bent on preventing Parliament from functioning and executing its constitutional role.
“The prorogation of Parliament is an extreme measure. It is a denial of democracy,” Granger said.
The full episode of ‘Hard Talk’ will be aired at 10:00hrs on Sunday, November 09.
