Cabinet meetings being held at GDF’s Officers’ Mess

Cabinet meetings are now being held at the headquarters of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) because it provides adequate logistics and security, while urgent repairs continue at the Ministry of the Presidency (MoTP) complex on Vlissengen Road, government said in a statement.

“After consideration of a number of options it was found that the vast majority of these venues did not meet several or some of the most important requirements or were unavailable for the times required.

The only venue which met the requirements was the Officers Mess at Camp Ayangana. This venue is being temporarily used for Cabinet Meetings until repair works at the Ministry of the Presidency are complete,” the Department of Public Information said in the statement.

Government assured that extensive search for a suitable space to temporarily host Cabinet Meetings has been conducted.

The main requirements for a temporary alternative venue, government said,  relate to privacy and confidentiality, security, document preparation and reproduction, size, cost, accessibility, parking and minimal disruption to traffic and regular business.The

The urgent repairs to sections of the Presidential Office Complex have resulted in the temporary unavailability of several rooms including the Cabinet Room, said the statement issued by the Ministry of the Presidency.


Government says it is not expected to pay more for use of the GDF’s Officers’ Mess.

    I was shocked until the reason was explained. Your security cannot be any better than when you are at army headquarters plus there are the other factors.This is not a long term arrangement by any means.Would any of the critics like to recommend an alternative venue. This whole furor looks like much ado about nothing.

    • Col123

      LB…you are missing a point…it is not what it is…it is the optics!

      • Lancelot Brassington

        The media did not break this story Col. There was a public announcement. If anything sinister was afoot there would not have been a public announcement. If the media had broken this story then that would have been something.If its only about ‘optics’ then it is about nothing. That’s the point I’m making.

      Don’t insult that slang word “bro,” like I said you are a CLOWN. Reading is fundamental, I stated an achievement, a plus, for having a DEFENSE FORCE. By the way, I am a proud graduate of Hunter College. You?
