AFC hints at leaving Coalition after talks breakdown

first_imgThe Alliance For Change (AFC) Thursday hinted strongly at the possibility of leaving the coalition with the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) after talks regarding their Prime Ministerial candidate reached a stalemate.The AFC has made it clear that their Leader Khemraj Ramjattan should be the Prime Ministerial candidate. However, their partner, the APNU, prefers someone else as President David Granger’s running mate.Both parties were in talks over the revision of the Cummingsburg Accord including the selection of a Prime Ministerial candidate. However, those talks have since been stalled owing to both sides refusing to budge on their positions.“We don’t accept that any other party should tell us or dictate to us who we should choose as our Prime Ministerial candidate. Why should we go back to our membership to say let’s have another discussion…on what basis?” Dominic Gaskin contended during a press conference today.“The AFC should name the Prime Ministerial candidate and the APNU should name the Presidential candidate…It’s non-negotiable for us,” Gaskin posited.Moreover, party executives gave strong hints about the possibility of leaving the coalition if Ramjattan is not accepted at the Prime Ministerial candidate.“We are the Alliance for Change and I think we have always said that we are here to form alliances for the benefit of Guyana. So, we have no inherent opposition to forming alliances with anyone,” Gaskin said.last_img read more

Ozil’s dad urges Arsenal star to QUIT Germany after being made ‘scapegoat’

first_img 1 He also came under-fire from the German football federation – along with Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan – having posed for photographs with the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, despite the strained relations between the two countries.Ozil, a key part of the the team which won the World Cup four years ago, has 23 goals in 92 caps for Germany and, at 29, has plenty of years left him in at the top level.But his dad, Mustafa, is unhappy with the treatment his son has received and believes he should end his international career.He told Bild: “If I were in his place, I would say: ‘Thank you, but that’s enough’.“He’s bent, disappointed and offended, yes, offended, his own fans booed him before the World Cup at the international in Austria and he cannot understand why.“He doesn’t always have to defend himself. He’s played in the national team for nine years and became a world champion.“It’s always said that if we win, we win together, but if we lose, we lose because of Ozil.“He’s booed and put up as a scapegoat – I completely understand that he is offended.“Mesut’s been an example for years. The situation is absurd – he loves Germany and has shown commitment to his country, that he’s presented as a scapegoat is so unfair.”Ozil has also divided opinion at Arsenal since arriving from Real Madrid in 2013 for a £42million fee.But he is regarded as key player for the club and signed a new long-term deal earlier this year which made him the Gunners’ highest-paid player.He will also wear the number ten shirt next season, previously worn by Jack Wilshere, who left the club at the start of July.
