The Bishop (Francis Alleyne) and members of the Roman Catholic Church are adding their voice to the passage of that No- Confidence motion. The grouping issued a statement today. More in this report from Handell Duncan .

The Roman Catholic Church added its voice to several others following last Friday’s No-Confidence Motion which was filed by the Opposition and successfully carried.

The most outspoken among the many denominations of churches, the body said, Guyana is in uncharted territory with the passage of the motion of no confidence in the government on December 21.

Notwithstanding some unacceptable behaviour, in Parliament and on social media, Guyanese have risen to the occasion by acknowledging the democratic nature of the process followed and resisting temptations to be intolerant, the Roman Catholic Church headed by Bishop Francis Alleyne stated.

It was pointed out that the country’s leaders would do well to acknowledge the extent to which the people, particularly youth, have lost confidence in the broader political process, and to grasp the opportunity now presented to reshape Guyana’s future.

Guyana needs, in the immediate period ahead, to instill renewed hope of the People in their nation, increase the accountability of elected leaders to the People as opposed to the parties, and to promote the reconciliation needed for increased socio-political trust in Guyana, Bishop Alleyne noted.

The maturity of the utterances of Guyana’s political leaders, the President, Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition in particular, for respecting the outcome of the no-confidence motion and for signaling their intent to engage each other was also applauded.
