AFC considering no-confidence motion against gov’t -Nagamootoo
AFC Vice-Chairman Moses Nagamootoo on Monday stated that the party is seriously contemplating a no-confidence motion against the Ramotar government.
Nagamootoo cited what he said was the government’s lack of regard for accountability among other issues. He pointed to the recent revelation that the government had already spent $4.5 billion of the $37.4 billion which had been cut by the joint opposition from the $220 billion 2014 budget. The government has now tabled a financial paper in Parliament to cover this amount but there is no guarantee that the opposition will support It. Nagamootoo said that this was just the sort of behaviour that shows the government lacks accountability. He said that a no-confidence motion “would have to be supported by the entire opposition. It is not a unilateral decision for the AFC (Alliance For Change), but it is something that is now coming to the table in light of the serious financial breach.”
