Government backbencher Michael Church has said it is too soon for anyone to declare how they will vote in Tuesday’s No Confidence Motion.
The Motion filed by Opposition Leader Dr. Keith Mitchell against Prime Minister Tillman Thomas and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government, is seeking to have the Prime Minister removed from office, the dissolution of Parliament and a call for fresh elections.
