On behalf of the APNU+AFC parliamentarians, Joseph Harmon recently wrote a letter to the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sherlock Isaacs, expressing concerns over having meetings of the National Assembly while COVID -19 remains rampant in Guyana.

Harmon sought “assurances about the Parliament Office’s preparedness for an inaugural, and future sittings during the currency of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
He noted that with a sitting of the National Assembly, staffers of the Parliament Office, parliamentarians, and others are expected to be housed together for prolonged periods.

Harmon stated that the APNU+AFC is urging the Parliament Office to seek independent professional advice and services before as they proceed with the sittings “as recent events do not inspire confidence in the Minister of Public Health’s ability to adequately combat the pandemic and keep his colleagues and others safe.”
