Charrandas Persaud, whose shock vote in support of the opposition’s no confidence motion against the Guyana government of which he was part, plans to return home soon, it has been reported.
Stabroek News quoted the former Guyana government MP as saying that he plans to continue his law practice.
Persaud said in a video posted on Facebook last month, that his life had been threatened since he broke ranks with the coalition administration of President David Granger which held a one-seat majority in the National Assembly.
“Guyana is my home. I am self-exiled so how long would I want to stay away from my work? I cannot live in fear forever. I will return soon,” Persaud told the newspaper via phone, from Canada.
Asked for a specific time frame, Persaud said that it will be after the meeting between President David Granger and Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, which is scheduled for Wednesday, or when a date for General Elections is set, Stabroek News said.
He said that he will gauge the political atmosphere and decide on a date of his return, the publication reported.
