Granger Casts Doubt on Participating in Meetings of Former Presidents

(Demerara Waves) Leader of the People’s National Congress Reform, David Granger has cast doubt on his participation in any of the meetings of former Presidents, saying that there is no constitutional role for him in such talks.

Mr. Granger instead said the Opposition Leader Joseph Harmon should be the representative in such talks with President Irfaan Ali. He said there was no constitutional role for him, as PNCR Leader and former President, as far as representing the coalition and the 31 parliamentarians. “If we are going to create a new forum outside of the constitution, someone must explain to me how the discussions and deliberations and the decisions we take are going to be incorporated. Five minutes later, they could be thrown in the waste paper basket,” said Mr. Granger on a PNCR-organised and moderated programme.

The PNCR Leader has hardly made himself available to the media to answer questions.

The opposition A Partnership for National Unity+Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) has refused to publicly recognise the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPPC)-led administration as the legitimately elected government and has challenged the validity of the March 2, 2020 general and regional elections in the High Court.
