The Alliance For Change has noted media reports relating to the citizenship status of its Members of Parliament.

The AFC wishes to advise that none of its eleven MPs has sworn allegiance to any foreign state. Ten of the party’s MPs are citizens of Guyana only. The other MP, Mr. Dominic Gaskin, was born in the United Kingdom but is a citizen of Guyana by descent.

The issue of renouncing citizenship does not apply to Guyanese who were born in another country. Therefore Mr. Gaskin, constitutionally, sits as a duly elected MP without any hindrance or issue.
