Pres. Granger swears-in Ramjattan to perform duties of PM

 
 

President David Granger, this morning, swore-in Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan to perform the duties of Prime Minister at the Ministry of the Presidency.

Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo is currently overseas.

Ramjattan, Leader of the Alliance For Change (AFC), has been selected by his party to be the coalition’s Prime Ministerial Candidate for the upcoming national elections in March 2020.

However, the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), which is led by Granger, has not accepted Ramjattan as the coalition’s Prime Ministerial Candidate.

PM job is a propaganda job similar  to the one Django's hold on GNI.

You r@ss funny !!!!

The only difference is the PM gets more pay, perks, and attention. 

True they get hefty pensions from a backwater country .

But that should be no laughing matter especially when it comes to highly ethical apolitical like you.

Granger likely to accept Ramjattan as March elections running mate

 

FLASHBACK: President David Granger and Minister of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan. In the background is then Minister of State, Joseph Harmon.

Alliance For Change (AFC) Leader, Khemraj Ramjattan on Thursday looked set to be accepted by President David Granger as his running mate for the March 2020 general elections, high-level sources said.

The sources indicated that the AFC was unlikely to give up any seats in the 65-seat National Assembly in exchange for Ramjattan being accepted as the prime ministerial candidate.

Mr. Ramjattan and Mr. Granger met, along with Chief Negotiator for the People’s National Congress Reform-controlled A Partnership for National Unity, Volda Lawrence and her AFC counterpart, David Patterson.

Ms. Lawrence and Mr. Patterson emerged from the meeting with an air of optimism that their differences would be settled. Patterson was not prepared to say more than β€œprogress” was made in the talks, while Lawrence said APNU and AFC were virtually inseparable despite a number of β€œbumps in the road”.

β€œBoth sides have some work to do and we have agreed that we will do the work as soon as possible so we have given ourselves some timeframes and we are both committed to working to those timeframes so the outtake of the meeting is progress,” Mr. Patterson said. β€œWe have always been one, we never severed, the Siamese twins remain,” he added.

The APNU and AFC negotiators are expected to meet as early as Friday.

AFC negotiator, Dominic Gaskin is on record as saying that his party was insisting on Mr. Ramjattan being accepted as Granger’s prime ministerial running mate and that his party would not relinquish parliamentary seats. Mr. Gaskin has also said that AFC has also told APNU that it was willing to give a written assurance that it is not interested in the presidency if Mr. Granger is no longer able to continue in office.

Ramjattan, who is Minister of Public Security, is currently acting Prime Minister in the absence of Moses Nagamootoo. There has been some resistance to Ramjattan in the PNCR camp.

It is unclear what will be Ramjattan’s portfolio of responsibilities if he is sworn in as Prime Minister should the APNU+AFC coalition win the March 2020 elections.

Nagamootoo is currently responsible for governance, parliamentary affairs, state media, and broadcasting except for spectrum management.
