[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party Civic, Clement Rohee, during a rally at Albion, Corentyne Berbice urged supporters to ensure that they do not allow the “Opposition coalition” to steal the ballot boxes nor the votes of the people come May 11.
According to Rohee, the Party will be prepared for any such eventuality. The crowd at the April 19 rally was deemed the largest in the history of the Party. Rohee said that the PPP/C has learned an important lesson which is non complacency.
“The lost votes must be regained; we will not allow them to take away the victory come May 11,” Rohee said.
He also accused the Opposition of being scandalous with their accusations that the Party has strayed from the ideals of its founder Dr. Cheddi Jagan; he said it’s quite the contrary.
The Party’s General Security also told the crowd that the APNU+AFC’s Presidential Candidate David Granger’s “soul mate” is Moses Nagamootoo, much to the amusement of the crowd.
Rohee was quiet the entertainer as he performed several songs on stage about marriage between a man and a woman, referring to the union of the two main political parties being between two men.
Immediately after the former President spoke, many of the Party’s supporters started leaving, even after President Donald Ramotar took the podium to make his remarks.
The incumbent President is confident of a win post May 11 and attributed that confidence to his government’s track record of achievements in Guyana.
He was critical of the coalition’s women’s rally which was held on Saturday and called it a, “lie lie rally.”
President Ramotar again accused the Opposition to being linked to criminal elements.
