Guyana president suspends parliament to avoid confidence vote

Amid ongoing accusations by opposition parties in Guyana of widespread corruption and over the failure to hold local elections since 1994, President Donald Ramotar on Monday suspended parliament to avoid a vote of no-confidence by the combined opposition, the Alliance For Change (AFC) and A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), which has a one seat majority in Guyana’s 65-member parliament and was therefore certain to bring down the government. It would have been the first ever in the history of independent Guyana that a vote of no confidence has been brought against an administration.
