Justice For All Party (JFAP) representative in the APNU+AFC coalition government, Jaipaul Sharma, says that he is willing to “sacrifice” his position in the alliance to facilitate a renewing of the Cummingsburg Accord.
“I am prepared to give up my position as a possible Member of Parliament and Minister of Government after the 2020 General & Regional Elections in the interest of all Guyanese as I see it as the greatest service and sacrifice that I can give for the greater good of Guyana,” Sharma, the junior Minister of Public Infrastructure, wrote in a post on his Facebook page yesterday.
“I am convinced that WE MUST GO INTO THE GENERAL & REGIONAL ELECTIONS AS A UNIFIED COALITION BECAUSE WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER. WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER. This is a tough time in politics and the tough must get going to make the tough decisions necessary to win,” he added.
Stabroek News made several attempts to contact Sharma yesterday for further clarification of his comments but the efforts were futile.
