Parliament postponed without reason


Today’s sitting of the National Assembly has been postponed, indefinitely.

Deputy Clerk Ms. Hermina Gilgeours made the announcement just 15 minutes before the Friday, November 16th sitting was due to commence.

Gilgeours would only say that the sitting was postponed without giving any explanation to the Opposition Parliamentarians who were present in the Chambers.

None of the 33 Government Parliamentarians turned up for the sitting.

The postponement comes one day after the Opposition People’s Progressive Party filed a No-Confidence motion against the APNU+AFC coalition Government with opposition MPs expressing belief that the motion may be the reason behind the postponement.

Opposition Chief Whip, Gail Teixeira opposed the matter in which the announcement was made.

She said the sitting should have been convened and the Speaker should have presented the MPs with an explanation for the postponement.

Opposition MPs are currently sitting in the Chamber.
