OPPOSITION CHARGES OF LACK OF DEMOCRACY GROUNDLESS!

The People’s Progressive Party is amused at the charges of the opposition about the lack of Parliamentary Democracy. The statement made by the AFC recently and also by the PNCR reflects an ingrained bias and a total lack of objectivity.

The motion that the opposition walked out on called for all to work “… with the Government and all Parliamentary political parties to jointly review the national security plan for its urgent and comprehensive implementation with the ultimate goal of cementing inclusive democracy, peace and justice in our country…”

In other parts the motion called to “…ensure the meaningful and effective participation of civil society in these parliamentary process…”

The agreement reached envisaged that a Parliamentary committee on National Security would be established. It also made clear that civil society would have the right to make presentations, recommendation etc. to this body.

These are all profoundly democratic proposals and actions on the part of the PPP/C which the Opposition parties walked out on!

Indeed the Guyanese people should ponder the real intentions of the opposition. It appears that they are intent on understanding democracy instead of promotion it.
