[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), Joseph Harmon has made it clear that the coalition government does not feel threatened by Bharrat Jagdeo being selected by the PPP to be leader of the Opposition.
Shortly after the post cabinet media briefing on Wednesday, July 08, Harmon told reporters that the people of Guyana will now have to question Jagdeo’s credibility given his previous pronouncements that he is not interested in any constitutional posts nor does he want to be in Parliament.
Harmon, who is also Minister of State, pointed out that Jagdeo has an ongoing criminal matter in the Magistrate’s Court, having been charged with racial incitement; however the APNU+AFC government will welcome him in Parliament since they do not have any fear of Jagdeo.
“Whether it is Jagdeo or whoever it is, this government will stand resolutely and we will be able to defend our position against anybody that the PPP bring up; Jagdeo or whoever. So we have no fear that it is him. In fact, we welcome him in the Parliament because he still got a couple of questions he gotta answer for during his term in Office as President,” Harmon said.
Jagdeo was earlier confirmed by immediate former President Donald Ramotar, as being selected and fully endorsed as the Opposition Leader.
