Local Authorities (Elections) (Amendment) Bill 2012 – Bill No. 2 of 2012

Hits: 888

Published Date: 15 Mar, 2012 | Speech delivered at: 4th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Mr. Nadir: Thank you, Mr. Speaker. First let me offer my congratulations to the Hon. Member, Mr. Bulkan, on his maiden presentation and while we listened attentively, because he just arrived on the scene, he has a lot of shortcomings in terms of how the history has been written, a lot of short comings, but he did have a very steady presentation and we on this side commend the Hon. Member… [Interruption by Members of the Opposition] We really like his enthusiasm of wanting to move the process forward. I will advise the Hon. Member that moving the process...

Approval of Government’s Policy in President’s Address

Hits: 989

Published Date: 15 Mar, 2012 | Speech delivered at: 4th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Mr. Hinds: I rise to move the motion standing in my name that we, the Tenth Parliament of Guyana, at this sitting of the National Assembly, commend and thank His Excellency for his address made at the ceremonial opening of the Tenth Parliament of Guyana on Friday, 10th February, 2012, and approve the policy adumbrated therein. We must, first of all, think of the circumstances in which our President would have had to frame his address, and in which we must consider it. As we know, after our citizens, who were moved to do so November last, 28th, had cast their...

Local Authorities (Elections) (Amendment) Bill 2012 – Bill No. 2 of 2012

Hits: 1063

Published Date: 15 Mar, 2012 | Speech delivered at: 4th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Mr. Hamilton: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. When I was asked to speak on this Bill I sought to go to the library here to look at the arguments over the last five years for this simple piece of legislation. What I noted was that there were long discussions and arguments similar to what I have heard this evening. The fact of the matter is, the Hon. Minister, in my view, has brought a simple piece of legislation here, as indicated, very straight forward, in his presentation that it is his wish that we work together to address the...

Approval of Government’s Policy in President’s Address

Mr. Greenidge: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. I rise to address the presentation by His Excellency Mr. Donald Ramotar. Unfortunately, in spite of the preceding contributions that we have been privileged to have listen to tonight I cannot bring myself to embrace the invocation of Prime Minister Hinds to express thanks and appreciation for the speech and its contents. Minister Benn informed us a little while ago that the President is the first complete Guyanese; well, if that is true, I can certainly commend him for that. I do believe him to be a very personable politician who has...

Approval of Government’s Policy in President’s Address

Hits: 1047

Published Date: 15 Mar, 2012 | Speech delivered at: 4th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Leader of the Opposition [Brigadier (Ret’d) Granger]: Thank you Mr. Speaker. The Ceremonial Opening of Parliament should be much more than a spectacular event. It should be an opportunity to review the previous session of Parliament and should be an opportunity to present an outline of the priorities, the policies and the programmes and, particularly, the proposed legislation for the new session. The text of the President’s Address to this Hon. House, although much shorter than some of the presentations this evening, should be a comprehensive document, one that is carefully prepared by the entire Cabinet....

Local Authorities (Elections) (Amendment) Bill 2012 – Bill No. 2 of 2012

Hits: 865

Published Date: 15 Mar, 2012 | Speech delivered at: 4th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Minister of Local Government and Regional Development [Mr. G. Persaud]: Mr. Speaker, I am humbly requesting that the Local Authorities (Elections) (Amendment) Bill 2012 – Bill No. 2 of 2012 which is standing in my name be read a second time. In so doing I wish to state that I will not take up much of the House’s time in presenting this Bill. I am of the view that we in this House will have no problem in passing this amendment. Local Government Elections could not take place during the year 2011 because of the Constitutional requirement of holding General and Regional...

Published Date: 15 Mar, 2012 | Speech delivered at: 4th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Mr. Bulkan: Thank you Mr. Speaker. Colleagues and Hon. Members, I rise on behalf of the APNU in relation to the Bill. The Hon. Member, Mr. Ganga Persaud, the Minister of Local Government and Regional Development has indeed suggested  that we on this side of the House will have no problem in supporting the motion which seeks the postponement, yet again, of Local Government Elections. I note the Hon. Minister says that the Government remains aggressively committed to seeing that these elections are held as soon as possible, and as he says, under the new Local Government System. I...

Minister of Public Works [Mr. Benn]: I rise, on this side of the House, to pay acknowledgement and to consider, along with the other Hon. Members, the address by His Excellency Donald Rabindranauth Chandarpaul, the new President of the Republic of Guyana…[Interruption]…  It is Donald Rabindranauth Ramotar. In so doing, I want to pay tribute to our new President.  Our new President in his address did speak to his long years in the National Assembly, and the fact that during those years he has been able to build enduring friendships on all sides of the...

Published Date: 15 Mar, 2012 | Speech delivered at: 4th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Mr. B. Williams: Mr. Speaker, I am loath to speak on this issue having spoken on it for years now but I need to clear the record in relation to the contentions of the Hon. Minister, Mr. Whittaker. He has contended that there has been consensus; we have made much progress on the Fiscal Transfers Act, etc. The fact of the matter is that is totally untrue. That is the fact of the matter. Let me say, at this point in time that the PPP/C Government has been the greatest impediment to progress in local democratic reform in this...

Approval of Government’s Policy in President’s Address

Hits: 1158

Published Date: 15 Mar, 2012 | Speech delivered at: 4th Sitting - Tenth Parliament

Dr. Singh: The privilege is mine tonight to add my voice in support of the motion moved by the Hon. Prime Minister that this Hon. House thanks His Excellency the President for his inaugural address and that we endorse the policies adumbrated therein. I say it is a privilege for me, so to do, because I do not believe that there is anything, at all, in the broad policy objectives identified in His Excellency’s address, or indeed amongst the specific initiatives named by his Excellency in his address, that any rational or right-minded Guyanese person could disagree with....
