President David Granger has accepted the resignations of Minister of State Joseph Harmon; Business Minister Dominic Gaskin; Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge; and Public Service Minister Dr Rupert Roopnaraine as Members of Parliament owing to their status as dual citizens.
The Government of Guyana is committed to the upholding of the Constitution of Guyana and by virtue, the March 22, 2019 ruling of the Court of Appeal on the December 21, 2018 Motion of No Confidence, which was brought against the Government.
These resignations came in light of mounting pressure from Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo and Civil Society who have been calling the governing Ministers to resign in light of the Appeal Court’s Ruling with respect to Dual Citizenship. Harmon is a US citizen while Greenidge, Gaskin and Roopnaraine are all UK citizens.
