On Friday, the Opposition will either withdraw its No-Confidence Motion, move it for debate or move a deferral. However, according to Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo, the government side will oppose any deferral. Here are the details from Handell Duncan

It’s just hours before that No-Confidence Motion brought against the APNU-AFC coalition Government is debated in the National Assembly. The preferred option at this point according to Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo is that the Opposition withdraws its motion. The second, option according to the Prime Minister is seeing the motion debated which, he assumes will be defeated.

And that is true. The Opposition is relying heavily on an uncertain crossover vote or votes from the Government side. On Monday, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said that a vote from the Government’s side in support of the motion will not signal an act of betrayal rather an act of patriotism.

Secondly, Prime Minister Nagamootoo is contending that the motion was timed to head into the holidays.

On Monday too, Jagdeo said, the Opposition was open to having the motion debated early next year.

Attempts by the Opposition to have the Prime Minister removed from sitting in the National Assembly while performing the duties of the president while, he was in Cuba receiving medical treatment was also seen by the ​Prime Minister as an orchestrated plot by the Opposition.
