— attorney general
THE government is prepared to work with all opposition parties. Attorney-General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall, made this disclosure during a ‘Government in Focus’ programme on the National Communications Network Inc. (NCN).
However, even as he relayed this, the attorney general hoped for fresh energy.
“We will work with the opposition… Hopefully, we have a fresh group of people who have the interest of Guyana and Guyanese at heart.”
However, the attorney-general noted that he felt certain persons now in the opposition, have disqualified themselves from being a part of the political direction in Guyana.
“I believe that over the last five or six months, there are certain persons because of their behaviour, because of their conduct, because of what they have said, have disqualified themselves from being part of the political leadership of this country,” the attorney-general stated.
He re-emphasised that a “responsible opposition” is needed.
“I am hoping that we have a responsible opposition on the other side of the Parliamentary aisle, with whom we can work with; not necessarily to support our political positions, but to support our positions of national interests.”
The Attorney General also took the time to reach out to the voting population in Region Four, saying that the Peoples National Congress (PNC), had a very important constituency, and while the constituents may not support the PPP/C, nevertheless, the Government will continue to work with them.
“It is a constituency that is deserving of proper leadership, and the PPP is prepared to lend that leadership,” Attorney-General Nandlall stated.
