[www.inewsguyana.com] – It appears as if President Donald Ramotar will have to resort to his plan – B which would see the dissolution of Guyana’s 10th Parliament and the realization of long talked about early general elections ahead of its 2016 due date.

President Ramotar had hoped that he could engage the political Opposition in dialogue after he prorogued Parliament on November 10 ahead of a debate on the No Confidence Motion brought against his administration by the minority Parliamentary Party – the Alliance for Change (AFC).

But even after the Head of State extended a formal/official invitation to the Opposition Leader, Granger is maintaining that there will be no talks with the administration unless the Parliament is recalled.

The President has said however that if dialogue with the Opposition fails, he will move to end the life of the 10th Parliament and go to the polls. Ramotar, who is confident of regaining the government’s majority which it previously held in the Assembly, is yet to announce a definite step in that direction.

What is known is that the current period of prorogation can only last a maximum of six months.

Granger told reporters this morning that he received the invite but reiterated, “we will not enter into talks with President Ramotar as long as the National Assembly is under prorogation.”

Meanwhile, the AFC has accused the government of seeking to divide and rule by excluding the Party, once again, from ‘talks’.

Yesterday, AFC Leader Khemraj Ramjattan said his Party did not receive any invitation from the President to engage in dialogue.

However, he told iNews that even if he received the invitation, he would throw it over his shoulder; making reference to public consternation that was created when Former President Janet Jagan, under the rule of the current regime, threw a Court Order, preventing her coronation as President, over her shoulder at a ceremonial event at State House after the 1997 elections.

The Head of State in the invitation proposed that the two sides meet and decide on a post – prorogation parliamentary agenda.

The Opposition has maintained that whenever the Parliament is reconvened they will proceed, immediately, with the vote of no confidence.

  4. granger should go sell plastic bags at burda market and ramjhattan should do deliveries with donkey cart. the 2 of them cant think straight. they are backward people and guyana moving ahead, we can do very well without there 2 germs.

  5. From all indications, it looks like the hot sun has damage the brains of the combined opposition. The AFC wants to kill the life of the tenth parliament, the PNC wants the PRESIDENT to reconvene parliament to talk how to end the life of it. The oppositions wants to run the Government with their one seat majority or from the street. I listen to the pnc shouting in the streets “WE WANT POWER, WE WANT POWER”! What power? I thought the one seat majority means power! If you have the ability to stop/hinder development, isn’t that power? Some people always want! They want what dos’t belong to them. That makes me remember how Burnham invented “KICK DOWN THE DOOR” when he told the Buxtonian to go get the gold that the Indians were wearing, during the very first public meeting he held there after he became President. That was power Burnham placed in the hands of solders then. I want Greenige, and Harmon to deny this. “WE WANT POWER, WE WANT POWER” Over seventy percent of the public servants are PNC, Is”t that power? I hereby recommend general election. Let the voters speak through their vote. Not by the shouting in the street like mad people, “WE WANT POWER”

  6. who is the leader of the opposition. granger or Ramjhattan. If Granger failed to inform Ramjhattan, i dont think that the president should be blame. Ramjhattan behave like a kindergarten kid.

  7. I think the President should ask Ramjattan to mount his back then swiftly bend over.
    Boodoop!
    Timba.
    Needs a good bump on the ‘ead’!

  8. do it and done with it..ya cant govern like it is..they dont want to talk then let the people do the talking again at the polls..
