[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) left the National Assembly as Social Protection Minister Volda Lawrence rose to make her budget presentation.
Lawrence, the fourth speaker of the day, rose just after PPP’s Indra Chandrpal had finished speaking but only spoke to the government side of the House.
The PPP members followed Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and calmly walked out of the National Assembly and proceeded to the Members of Parliament lounge.
PPP Member of Parliament Komal Chand explained said that the move was to facilitate a small meeting. He could not say what the meeting is about. PPP’s Vindya Persaud is scheduled to speak after Minister Lawrence.
