Additionally, Leader of the Opposition Dr Bharat Jagdeo was earlier today elected as the new General Secretary (GS) of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), replacing former GS and Executive Committee Member Clement Rohee, who did not contest the post.
Rohee instead opted to let Dr Frank Anthony contest, reportedly citing Anthony’s youth and fact that he secured the second highest votes at the Central Committee elections as factors.
The Party in a release said that it “will work fervently and assiduously to resume the seat of government at the next General and Regional elections in order to continue the task of nation building and to arrest the downward slide into which our country is descending.”
