The government is not remotely willing to allow a debate on the Alliance For Change’s (AFC) sponsored No-Confidence motion and has therefore decided to go to the polls.

This was made known yesterday as President Donald Ramotar addressed the media at State House.
Ramotar declared that he will, early in the New Year, announce “further steps towards the direction of General and Regional elections in Guyana.”

Granger announces protests for local govt elections; AFC says no-confidence motion is priority

Even as Opposition Leader David Granger formally announced that A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) would be embarking on protests to pressure government into holding Local Government Elections (LGE), the Alliance For Change (AFC) said the priority should be passing the no-confidence motion to boot the Donald Ramotar administration out of office.

In an address to the nation that largely said nothing new but reiterated APNU’s call for the President to name a date for LGE, Granger said he had no other choice but to call protests.
“We have called on the President to simply set the date on which local government elections will be held. He has not done so. We have therefore embarked on a campaign of lawful, orderly, peaceful public protests – including picketing, rallies and vigils – to raise public awareness of the threat to our collective rights.

In fact, Granger told this publication that he would not seek to checkmate the People’s Progressive Party’s (PPP) move, which apparently came in light of looming early general elections. The Leader of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) said that he fully supports the policy for he believes that it is quite desirable.

Granger asserted that the APNU was established three years ago with the aim of creating a government of national unity but its call was not supported by the PPP at that time, for they were still wedded to the winner-takes-all attitude.  Continue reading

High Court dumps Attorney General’s parliamentary committees case

May 2., 2012 – Demerara Waves –

The High Court on Wednesday threw out a case brought by Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, saying it had no legal power to determine the proportional composition of Committees of the National Assembly.

“It therefore does appear that the complaint of the Attorney General has been made to the wrong forum. The forum for a complaint of this nature is the National Assembly itself and not the court,” Chief Justice, Ian Chang said in a 30-page decision.           Continue reading
