[] – Guyana’s Head of State President Donald Ramotar has three options regarding the no-confidence motion listed on the Order Paper of the National Assembly today, November 10, according to Member of Parliament (MP) of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Bibi Shaddick.

Shaddick explained that the first option was to allow the motion to be tabled and voted on and move to elections within three months. The second option she pointed out would be to prorogue the Parliament. This, Shaddick explained would allow a period of time during which discussions could be held to determine the way forward. The third option she pointed out would be to dissolve Parliament which would see the country heading for elections three months later.

The PPP/C MP stated that indicating his intention to do this during his last address to the nation, clearly shows political maturity on the part of the President. She added that in proposing the motion, the Alliance for Change party has not demonstrated this maturity.

Referring to their constant alliance with the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and their attempts to dictate to the Executive, Shaddick indicated this was an attempt to rule the country through the National Assembly.

Meanwhile, Minister of Public Works Robeson Benn pointed to the issue of the political opposition seeking to obtain power at all costs. He noted that this move was undertaken without regard for the people of Guyana.

The Minister pointed to the cuts to the National Budgets and the contriving of crises to create instability in Guyana. He added that these were attempts to reverse to course of the country.

Minister Benn noted too, that this would affect the economy which has showed consistent growth over the past eight years and which has changed Guyana tremendously. He however urged that calm should prevail, even as the way forward is being sought.

Also, PPP/C MP Dharamkumar Seeraj, reminded that the PPP/C gained 32 seats, APNU 26 seats and the AFC seven seats.

He echoed the sentiment that the attempt to run the country from this forum has continually proven unsuccessful. Seeraj pointed to the continued success of the economy as proof enough that the combined opposition has failed in this venture. [Extracted and modified from GINA]





  1. Again I say let wisdom prevail for the sake of all Guyana. Mr. PRESIDENT I hereby recommend general election. let Guyana continue in prosperity. If we allow economic growth to stop now by putting Guyana in the PNC hands, then woe be unto Guyanese. should the PNC come back in power, one of the first things they will do is to kill the free press. I believe Lall would be the first to migrate. even without a visa. Exercise your presidential power! Remember the world is watching. God is watching. It is God who promote, and demote.

  2. PPP/C gained 32 seats,
    PNC 26 seats.
    AFC 7 seats.
    If the Guyanese people ent ketch on as yet they will soon be on to it that the political party with 7 seats in Parliament wans to rule Guyana.
    American Dick Morris told that party leader he will win the election.
    2006 – 2011 that party failed and ran a distant 3rd both times.
    First time around it was a black leader name Trotman—failed–
    Second time around it was collie leader name Ramjattan–failed–
    That very small party in both elections spent a lot of money and was told by American Dick Morris it will win the election.
    Well it never won two elections now and the big time money donors are demanding answers as to what happened to their money…Ramjattan & Nagamootto cant account for those money..
    They were paid to stop the Marriott and were paid to stop the specialty hospital.
    Well there would be both and much more built but the big money donors still asking where is our money..Ramjattan and Nagamoottoo cant account..
    Maybe they took the big money and hand it over to Nigel Hughes who had to pay a lot of thugs to take to the streets and did what they done on Agricola Public road.
