Ramjattan to be new AFC leader shortly – Trotman
Speaker of the National Assembly and Leader of the Alliance For Change, Raphael Trotman tonight announced that the mantle of party leadership will be transferred to MP Khemraj Ramjattan who currently holds the position of Chairman.
He made the announcement at the launching of the party’s sub-office at Enmore, East Coast Demerara.
After Trotman was elected Speaker this year, questions were raised about the propriety of him continuing as leader of the AFC in the context of a situation where as Speaker he would be required to rule impartially on matters that were brought before him by members of the AFC and other parties in Parliament.
When asked about this, Trotman had said that the matter was going to be addressed later this year.
