Acting Prime Minister, Carl Greenidge. He is substantively 2nd Vice President and Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Carl Greenigde will be performing duties of Prime Minister in the absence of Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo who departed for India where he will engage in a number of activities.

Minister Greenidge took the Oath of Office on Wednesday in the presence of President David Granger, Minister of State Joseph Harmon and senior officers of the Disciplined Services.

A spokesman for the Office of the Prime Minister said Nagamootoo left Guyana on Wednesday for India where he would be attending three major activities.

Nagamootoo, who is Vice Chairman of the Alliance For Change (AFC), is expected to return on October 12, 2016.

The parliamentary recess ends on October 10, 2016. The next sitting of the National Assembly is tentatively set for October 13.

Greenidge, a member of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR), is also Guyana’s 2nd Vice President.

    The de facto PM stands with a wry smile while the acting PM receives his instruments in the absence of the token PM!

      FYI, Eddie, I preferred Greenidge over Granger, as my past blogs have indicated. In fact, when Greenidge ran against Granger for PNC Leader to replace Corbin, Greenidge was widely favored, but as he later complained, the election was rigged to favor Granger. Even if Granger steps aside and there are party elections again, the rigging will continue. Granger is a major disappointment!

        A gwan frame this one

      • eddie

        what can I say!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is what our country has come to when we can settle for dumber the architect of the economic collapse of Guyana to replace dumb… I will take Granger over anyone in this country because of his discipline unfortunately he lack leadership in the political scene

          Carl Greenidge joined the Burnham regime in 1978 at the State Planning Commission, by which time Guyana’s economic decline had already started. He later became Ministers of Finance and Planning, but do recognize that while he worked for Burnham during the worsening economic decline, he also worked for Hoyte during the economic recovery.

          To me, Greenidge had to work with the vision of leader of the day, and the fact that Jagdeo used, with measured success, the economic recovery program devised by Greenidge for Hoyte is evidence of Greenidge’s ability.

          More than that, Greenidge was appointed in 1992 Under Secretary General of the ACP. That was further evidence of his impressive resume. Your boy, Jaggie, well..

          • eddie

            Hoyte did not start the recovery program, that was forced upon him by the IMF via the USA but I give him credit for implementing the ERP which was a start and at no time there was tangible result to make it Hoyte baby or as per si greenidge foresight … you must applaud jagan for staying the course with it although is was the complete opposite of his ideology but then again he had to have promise big brother he will stay the course so you see my struggle to find the competent of greenidge who is a joker in the finance community world

          • Col123

            I make it simple..Greenidge should be required to answer for the blood in his hands… you can see it in his eyes also…

    • Col123

      Naggie went for a bath in the Ganges!…at Varnasi ….his holy site is in Jerusalem though…or it Mecca?…His office said the he went for a cleansing …

      • eddie

    I thought that another AFC person was supposed to act for Nagga.

    • Col123

    Regardless who is acting , the real Prime Minister and First VP is Joe Harmon
