PPP CONDEMNS OPPOSITION WALK OUT

The People’s Progressive Party has noted that the opposition parties in Parliament in trying to justify their walk out of the National Assembly during the debate on the motion moved by the Prime Minister on the State Holders meeting have stated that the PPP/C had refused to accept their amendments.

The PPP wishes to put the record straight.

The motion that was put in the National Assembly was not a PPP or a government documents, It was the product of four meetings involving the government, opposition parties in Parliament and civil society. These documents were signed by fifty one (51) organizations.

The Parliamentary opposition parties had this in their possession for almost two weeks before the sitting of March 27. They proposed amendments late in the evening of March 26, when it was practically impossible to contact all those who signed the documents to seek their agreement for the proposed amendments.

The PPP/Civic was of the view that we did not have the mandate to change that document. What we did was to faithfully reproduce what was agreed to.

The PPP feels that the walk out by the Parliamentary Opposition was a violation of the agreement reached by broad consensus.

The general public should know that one part of the agreement states that all the signatories to the agreement should “…initiate and support confidence building measures in the society at large and amongst communities and organizations, in order to continue to move the country forward…

The walk out could not be interpreted as building confidence. Indeed it was clearly an act designed to undermine confidence. It has certainly sent wrong signals to the murderous band that cold bloodedly killed twenty five persons in Lusignan and Bartica.

The walk out is a betrayed of the victims of crimes in our society.

The PPP calls on all peace loving and democratically minded Guyanese to condemn the PNC/R, AFC and GAP/ROAR for their walk out of the PARLIAMENT.
