AFC says it will accept the Speaker’s ruling on “Rohee Debacle” as final – 26th Feb 2013

nagamootooOpposition party, The Alliance for Change (AFC) said, it will accept the Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman’s ruling on the “Rohee Debacle” as final.

However, at the same time, the  party’s executive member, Moses Nagamotoo told Capitol News, that the AFC reserves the right to co-operate, or not to, with Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee.

Nagamotoo said, with Rohee at the helm of Guyana’s security sector, all confidence has been lost in him in that capacity.

Nagamotoo said the main reasons why Parliament passed a no-confidence motion against the Minister of Home Affairs, was because of his incompetence and outright mal-administering of the affairs of the security sector.

But, while the AFC is throwing its support behind the Speaker, the main opposition coalition, A Partnership For National Unity (APNU), has rejected the ruling, calling it contradictory, non-binding and legally weak.

Nevertheless, Nagamotoo said, while the issue was unprecedented, he said as mature political leaders, the safety and protection of the Guyanese people should be of importance.

He said in the spirit of good governance, Parliament should move on with the People’s business.

The AFC said it time for a major push for constitutional reform of the country’s political history and it will start the discussion and consultation with the public and stakeholders shortly.
