APNU meets with CCWU on prorogation of Parliament, other issues
The A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) on Thursday met with representatives of the Clerical and Commercial Workers Union (CCWU) where they discuss the prorogation of Parliament, among other issues.
The meeting was held at the Office of the Leader of the Opposition, and provided APNU representatives the opportunity to brief the CCWU on the “current constitutional crisis brought about by the Proclamation of Prorogation of the Parliament of Guyana by President Donald Ramotar,” a release said.
The CCWU representatives took the opportunity to brief the Opposition Leader and his team on critical challenges affecting labour in Guyana.
The main focus of the discussion centred on matters pertaining to the Prorogation of Parliament, the No-Confidence Motion and Local Governance.
“APNU iterated its position that there would be no negotiations with the Peoples Progressive Party/Civic administration unless the Presidential Proclamation of Prorogation is reversed and Parliament reconvened,” the release said.
The CCWU team was led by President Sherwood Clarke, and included General Secretary Ann Anderson, Treasurer Dexter Jones and several Executive members.
APNU team was led by Opposition Leader (retired) Brigadier David Granger and included APNU Deputy Chairman, Dr Rupert Roopnarine, Shadow Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams, APNU General Secretary Joseph Harmon, Shadow Local and Regional Development Minister Ronald Bulkan and APNU Director of Communications Mark Archer.
