The monies reportedly represent draw-downs from loans to repair GPL’s aging network and an electricity subsidy from government. GPL said that it faced severe losses totalling billions of dollars last year because of soaring fuel costs.The Opposition in blocking the monies for GPL had said that not sufficient reasons were put forward on how the monies will be spent. The Opposition also said that it was not convinced that GPL has done enough to reduce its commercial and technical losses which account for over 30 per cent of its production.Resist it!The proposed hike in electricity rates by the state-controlled GPL “must be vigorously resisted by the Guyanese people. After in excess of 20 years in office, the PPP Government has consistently failed to provide reliable electricity to this nation. Even after spending billions of dollars every year through loans and prohibitively high?prices on new generating capacity, it is vividly clear that the Government has no solution in sight in the context of its statutory duty to provide electricity at an affordable cost,” AFC said yesterday.The Opposition party said that despite the abundance of alternative sources of energy in Guyana, including wind, solar and hydro potential, the Guyanese people continue to suffer hourly blackouts with repeated adverse effects on homeowners’ appliances and goods, business-owners’ production equipment?and school children’s education?.AFC said that GPL’s Board of Directors,Cheap Jerseys From China,?comprising the “familiar square pegs in round holes and?soup-drinkers”,?has yet to devise a turnaround plan after so many years in office.“In fact were they in the private sector or in a state entity in any other country, they would have long been fired for incompetence.

PPP made it clear that it is the fault of the AFC/APNU alliance which combined to slash $5.2B from the 2013 National Budget that was “allocated by Government to GPL to prevent consumers having to face such a burden.”PPP said that the cut was despite several pleas by Government,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, the management of GPL, other stakeholders and the party itself for the AFC and APNU to refrain from cutting GPL’s subsidy but “they ignored this and went ahead; fully aware of the consequences it would have on consumers. The Opposition cannot pretend to be ignorant of the challenges and what is being done to correct them by the GPL’s management as all this information has been presented to both the AFC and APNU.”The ruling party said that what continues to boggle the mind is that while the Opposition is making excuses to deny consumers along the coast the benefit of such subsidies from Government; “they did not display this level of concern when they approved the subsidies Government had also set aside for Region 10 to t
