No-Confidence Motion Carried. Lawmakers on Both Sides Should Respect the Process and Look to Guyana’s Future.

The recent tabling and success of a motion of no-confidence against the government took everyone by surprise. However, the underlying factors that led to the no-confidence motion are hardly surprising. Poor economic and budget policies have hurt families across the country and slowed the economy. For politicians on both sides, this should be a moment for pause and reflection. A moment for politicians to rethink their purpose, policies, and plans for a better Guyana and take them to the electorate.
