Gov’t moves to court to block No-Confidence motion
The country’s Attorney General Basil Williams says the Government is prepared to take its case all the way to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) after Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotland refused to reverse a vote of No-Confidence passed against the APNU+AFC Government in the National Assembly on December 21, 2018.
Immediately, the Government is filing proceedings in the High Court to:
1) Stay the No-Confidence Motion on the grounds that 34 votes are needed to pass the motion by ‘majority’
2) To deem the vote by Charrandass Persaud invalid given his dual citizenship
Even with the actions not yet filed, Williams appeared certain that the matter will go all the way to the CCJ, Guyana’s final court of appeal.
“We’re off to the CCJ,” the Attorney General declared.
He also appeared confident the Government would win its case in court.
‘Why fuss?” he told reporters.
