President Ramotar seeks to garner support on 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.
