Minister of Home Affairs defends his management of the security sector – 8th Apr 2013
From using what some considered to be unparliamentary language, to digging into history, and flipping through piles of paper, Minister of Home Affairs Clement Rohee, sought to prove that the budget and his handling of the security sector was not that bad. Minister Rohee cut out newspaper clippings of Guyanese enjoying Mashramani, Phagwah, and Easter to prove his point.
The opposition had passed a no-confidence motion in Minister Rohee, but he is refusing to budge and has the full backing of the Government. The opposition, so far unable to force Rohee out, was still however, insisting on highlighting why he should step down.
The Parliamentary debates stretch into Tuesday and the opposition has made it clear it will size down the budget when that time comes.
The cutting could begin as early as Wednesday. It is unclear if the opposition would support Rohee’s portion of the budget.
