PPP women’s arm calls for resignation of gov’t
The Women’s Progressive Organisation (WPO) has issued a call for the government to abide by Constitutional provisions and resign with immediate effect.
“The WPO calls on the coalition government to stop the charade and to meet urgently with the Opposition Leader, Dr. Bharrat Jagdeo, to work out ways to meet the constitutional deadline for General and Regional elections in Guyana in order to stop uncertainty and allow democracy to prevail as stipulated by the Constitution,” a statement from the organization read.
The WPO argued that any objections being made now to the passing of the motion are frivolous.
“The ‘No Confidence Motion’ received 33 votes of the 65 votes in the National Assembly, to which the speaker ruled. The government fell and lost its right to manage the affairs of the country. Baseless and frivolous arguments are now being touted by those who seek to confuse and give a false sense of hope to their supporters. No amount of spin can cast any doubt of the demise of the Government and the ensuing resignation which must occur,” it stated.
Further, the release referenced a statement made by President David Granger, in which he said that the coalition government will “abide by the stipulations which have been imposed on it following the passing of the No Confidence Motion…”, as well as similar sentiments shared by the Prime Minister.
