ANUG calls on Patterson to step down

Another political party has added its voice to the calls for David Patterson to resign as chair of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament.

A New and United Guyana (ANUG), one of the three joinder parties which hold a single seat in the National Assembly, suggested in a statement yesterday that the scandal surrounding Patterson’s acceptance of personal gifts from government agencies while a Minister of Government compromises his ability to function in the post.

It stressed that it is this Committee that “has the role of scrutinizing public spending and public accounts [and] which would scrutinize and police the giving of ‘gifts’ and below-value sale of assets of State property to officials in circumstances of abuse and conflict of interest.”

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
