PPP/C unlikely to bargain on confidence motion
The ruling PPP/C is unlikely to strike a deal with the opposition to shelve the no-confidence motion filed against the Donald Ramotar administration by the AFC, political analysts say.
The AFC, after the opposition coalition APNU indicated support, on Thursday filed a no-confidence motion against the government with Clerk of the National Assembly Sherlock Isaacs. If passed by the combined opposition, which holds a one-seat majority in the House, the government would be forced to resign and general elections would have to be held within three months.
However, the National Assembly heads into its annual three-month recess from today and the motion is unlikely to be debated until October, when it reconvenes. If passed, general elections could be held early next year.
