By Abena RockcliffeWhile the Alliance for Change (AFC) awaits green light from the Inter American Development Bank (IDB) on the Amaila Falls Project—the due diligence report—before giving support to the project; the government is saying that parliamentary unanimity will influence the IDB’s decision.The Amaila Falls project is the largest financial one ever undertaken in the history of Guyana, costing some US$840M.A Chinese bank and the IDB are on board on this one; the government is desperately lobbying for the Opposition to come on board as well.Downstream elevation view of the proposed Amaila Falls Hydro Project.According to the Finance Minister, Dr. Ashni Singh, the support of parliament will influence international support. He said that he worries that lack of local support will hinder the progress of the Project.The Opposition is holding the nation to ransom for unconnected political gains, said Dr. Singh yesterday at a press conference.His contention was made known as he responded to a question on whether the government is willing to implement the Public Procurement Commission and have the President assent to the two rejected Bills in exchange for the Opposition’s support for two critical pieces of legislation directly linked to the Amaila Falls Hydro Project.The Minister, who reiterated the urgent need for unanimous support in parliament for a Motion to increase the debt ceiling and Amendments to the Hydro Electric Act,cheap jerseys authentic, said that he finds it alarming that the opposition sees nothing wrong with the horse trading.Singh said “it is like they are holding the nation to ransom; that is to say, unless you give in to our demands, we are prepared to undermine and oppose development in this country even though the project will benefit all Guyanese including our own supporters.”The Minister went on to state that A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the AFC should be treating the project based on its merit as opposed to seeking to extract other political concessions from government.He asked how members of the joint parliamentary opposition can “look at the Guyanese with a straight face and say, ‘we undermine this project because we weren’t able to get what we wanted politically on an unconnected matter.”He added that just to have its own way, the opposition is taking an anti-national position.The Minister opined that any responsible stakeholder committed to the cause of improving quality of life in Guyana, will throw full support behind both pieces of legislation scheduled to be debated in parliament on Thursday.Singh stated, “We are asking international partners to support this project, we cannot therefore be ambivalent about the signal we send to them.”He said that in asking for international support, the least one can do is to demonstrate support within one’s jurisdiction.The AFC needs to put their vote where their mouth is he pointed out that while the party has publicly stated their support for the project,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, they refuse to vote on it in parliament, until the International community approves the project.“They (the AFC) have said in Parliament that they are supportive of Amaila but they said they will not vote for the Amaila Falls project until the IDB approves it. Now let’s be serious here, we’re dealing with International Financial Institutions, who will look to the national parliament and the national stakeholder community and they will say, why on earth should we  – the international community support such a project that you – domestic Guyanese stakeholders are not prepared to come out and support unequivocally?”He continued, “So it is really difficult to comprehend the position taken by the AFC, who on the one hand recognizes that the Guyanese people want the Amaila Falls project to happen urgently, and so they clearly would like to be associated with the project. They’re making public pronouncements that they are in favour of Amaila, but yet, they are not putting their vote where their mouth is.”In a press release recently, the Minister stated that critical deadlines are looming and expiration dates on certain commitments expire this year,NFL Jerseys Outlet From China, as it relates to the project.Singh said yesterday that more than a year ago, the President invited the Opposition to a meeting where details were given on the project through a technical presentation.He said that Members were also given documents to study and the President had informed that his administration was open to answering any questions.He said,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, too, that an update was given this year and the same invitation was extended.People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Executive Secretary, Zulficar Mustapha,Cheap Jerseys From China, also present at yesterday press conference, said that the AFC is purporting that electricity rates will be higher with Amaila Falls.He said that the reality is that the Amaila Falls project is fulfilling Guyana’s goal of attaining self-sufficiency in the energy sector, specifically in the area of renewable energy;  providing reliable, lower cost electricity to citizens. This will no doubt bring measured relief to all, particularly the poor.He added that it will also spur economic growth in several sectors,Soccer Jerseys Cheap, particularly manufacturing; ultimately creating more jobs and contribute to increased competition for our labour force thereby improving benefits for the working class.
