Guyana High Court to Hear Challenge to No-Confidence Vote

The Guyana government’s challenge of a no-confidence motion against it will be filed in the nation’s high court sometime this week, according to Attorney General Basil Williams.

Williams said that Jan. 15 has been fixed to hear the case concerning the validity of former parliament member Charrandass Persaud’s vote given his Canadian citizenship, the Stabroek News reported.

Persaud voted in favor of the no-confidence motion, which passed 33-32 last month.

The attorney general said the government will also argue that 34 votes, not 33, constitute the majority required for the motion to pass.
