– Says parliament is the epitome of democracy
Britain’s High Commission to Guyana, Andrew Ayre, has called for the swift resumption of the work of the National Assembly. Ayre reportedly stated unequivocally that “Parliament should re-sit in Guyana and get on with the business of taking this country forward.” “The UK believes that the central pillar of democracy is parliament and, therefore, parliament should re-sit with the shortest possible delay,” Ayre noted.
A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) has called on the nation to resist the prorogation of the tenth parliament by President Donald Ramotar. “The APNU calls on all Guyanese not to accept this denial of democracy and not to allow the PPP/C to implant a ‘one-party’ dictatorship in Guyana,” an official release from the party stated.
