PPP women’s arm calls for res­ig­na­tion of gov’t

Stabroek News Sunday - - NEWS -

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.
