Government members have failed once again to show up for a sitting of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the National Assembly.

According to the A Partnership for National Unity + Alliance for Change (APNU+AFC), this is the third consecutive meeting that the government’s side has failed to attend.

“Today, Monday, 12th December, 2022 marks the third consecutive Monday of no meeting of the PAC since the resumption from recess of the National Assembly due to the absence of a quorum and the 6th Monday of no PAC since the passage of a motion to change the composition of a quorum for the PAC,” the main parliamentary opposition said in a statement to the press.

The absence of government members is a clear show to their total disrespect for accountability and transparency. The PPP/C’s continued absence from the PAC is clear evidence of the breaking down of the guardrails of our democracy, the party said.

“The APNUAFC will continue to fight for the people of Guyana and will formally notifying the diplomatic community and parliamentary organisations of this development. It is clear that for Guyana to grow the PPP/C must go.”
