– “Unfit to even grace the chambers of National Assembly”
After the most shocking announcement of the prorogation of the National Assembly,
scores of citizens flocked to the gates of the Parliament to hear the plans of the way forward by members of the political Opposition, particularly A Partnership for National Unity (APNU).
The tension among citizens was quite noticeable, as several begged for answers to questions that even some disappointed politicians seemed unable to provide at the time.
One question that remains unanswered at this point for some citizens is, “What is the way forward?”
Brigadier, David Granger, Leader of the APNU, appealed to citizens yesterday to remain strong and to understand the extent to which the current administration would go to muffle their voices.
Many frustrated citizens also sought to voice their concerns.
One vendor and mother of three daughters said, “This government just ain’t got no shame. Imagine is we vote got these people in office. Now look what they doing to we. They show we today they don’t care about the poor people. They don’t want to do anything for us.
“This is not a democracy, this is a step back to the days of slavery.”
One irate group also held high, placards depicting disdain for the embattled Attorney General, Anil Nandlall.
Two cards read, “Nandlall is a Chatree without dignity,” and “The AG is a disgrace, he has to go now.”
The leader of the group, a 55-year-old teacher said, “This government has sunk to an extreme low. It can’t go lower than what it did today. This entire nation needs to wake up and wake up quickly.
“This government did this because it is ashamed of itself. It couldn’t bear to face the people on its illegalities and corrupt acts.
“You honestly think the Chatree could have faced the Opposition today? Of course not. Imagine we got an Advisor to the President, telling a reporter about plans that he knows which will bring harm to a newspaper publisher and staff? Isn’t that insane?
“The Attorney General is a monumental disgrace. He is a huge disappointment to the people. We want him out of there. He is not fit to even grace the chambers of the Parliament. He is not worthy to represent the people anymore.”
Another member of the group said, “To suspend Parliament like this shows that you have no respect for the people. The government is disrespectful. You know is like when you have chosen someone to marry and after marriage that person continuously abuses you, rapes you, robs you, but when you want a divorce, they refusing to sign the papers or even give you a listening ear.
“That is exactly what is going on. The relationship this government got with the people is now rotten. There is no love, no care there. All you seeing is a cold and ruthless set of people ruling we.
“The people calling for a divorce and they don’t want to give us. They need to face the No-Confidence motion. If you continue to stifle the people like this then all you are asking for is crime.”
The protestors also called for APNU and the AFC to continue to pull closer at this point in time.
