The prospect of an early general election in Guyana has increased significantly after the majority opposition grouping, A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), signaled its intention to back a motion of no confidence in the Donald Ramotar administration.
The last election was held here on November 28, 2011.
The minority Alliance for Change (AFC) has said it will table the motion of confidence in the minority People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) government. The two opposition parties control 33 of the 65-seat National Assembly.
On Tuesday, the APNU shadow cabinet met to discuss the motion and according to the group’s co-leader, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine, the decision was unanimous and that no dissenting views were expressed during meeting.
He said the party would support the motion when it comes before the parliament, hopefully in October.
