In light of Iqbal Rahim being viciously attacked last evening while he was posting campaign material in Georgetown advertising and calling for the support of “Team Benschop” the Alliance For Change (AFC) has condemned the act and is urging that the matter be reported to the police.
According to the AFC, law enforcement officials should be allowed to conduct a probe into this incident and appropriate action should be taken after this investigation has concluded.
In a press release today, the AFC noted that from earlier reports, Rahim appeared to have suffered serious injuries.
“The Alliance For Change unreservedly condemns this brutal and barbaric attack in the midst of the campaign for Local Government Elections. All candidates for Local Government Elections should be permitted to campaign unhindered, free from fear and intimidation in every square inch of Guyana. We have come too far as a country to even flirt with the return to the dark days of election violence,” it stated.
