The “political uncertainty” that has enveloped the country will continue to affect the business climate in Guyana until the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) delivers a final ruling on the no-confidence vote against government, newly-elected President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) Nicholas Boyer said yesterday
