President Donald Ramotar today again said he is ready to deal with the fall-out should the opposition pass a no-confidence motion against his government.
“I will be ready to face the consequences of that,” he said at a news conference at State House this afternoon. A no-confidence motion against the Government of Guyana now seems imminent as the Alliance for Change (AFC) says it has been receiving a huge amount of positive feedback from stakeholders on such a move. A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) has said that the coalition is likely to support such a motion.
Ramotar has dared the opposition parties to move a no-confidence motion against his government. “We do not take threats. If the opposition wants to pass a no-confidence bill, let them pass it and we will be ready to deal with the consequences of that,” Ramotar said while delivering remarks at the Private Sector Commission’s Annual General Meeting at the Pegasus Hotel in Georgetown on Wednesday.
A no-confidence vote passed by the one-seat opposition majority would bring down the government as new elections would have to be held.
