President Ramotar seeks to garner support on Amaila Falls Hydro Project

Screen Shot 2013-07-26 at 6.09.27 PMThe Government is now doing what  it needed  to do in the first place,  meeting with members of the public to discuss the much talked about Amaila Falls Hydro project.

On Thursday, President Donald Ramotar led the charge as he tried to garner support on the project he says is important to national development and will help to reduce electricity rates.

The opposition which holds the majority in the National Assembly is calling for more transparency, saying that they are trying to avoid another Skeldon sugar factory scenario, but the President is assuring Guyanese that the  whopping $840 million US investment is a feasible one for Guyana.

The opposition is calling on the Government to support the four Local Government reforms Bills which will pave the way for local Government elections, but the Government has so far shut the door on the Local Government process. Meanwhile the AFC is calling for constructive engagement and compromise. They want  Local Government reforms and the setting up of the Public Procurement Commission.
