Guyana prepares for dissolution of suspended Parliament

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — The president of Guyana is expected to soon dissolve the South American country’s parliament after suspending it last November to avert a no-confidence vote.

Donald Ramotar had pledged to dissolve the opposition-controlled National Assembly by the end of February.

Assembly Clerk Sherlock Isaacs said Saturday he was notified that the presidential proclamation to dissolve the body was ready but he had not yet seen it.

General elections are scheduled for May 11. Ramotar’s People’s Progressive Party is seeking a sixth consecutive term.

Elections must be held within three months following dissolution of Parliament.
