APNU/AFC Coalition plans public meetings for this weekend


The A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Coalition has planned a series of public meetings for this weekend.

This would, however, be in breach of the COVID-19 guidelines.

The public meetings are expected to commence at 9:30h across Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara).

AFC executive and caretaker Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson is expected to speak at Parika, East Bank Essequibo from 09:30h, and Philadelphia New Primary School in Vergenoegen from 13:00h on Sunday.

But when contacted, the former minister refused to confirm whether he would be speaking at the scheduled outreaches.

Meanwhile, PNC General Secretary Amna Ally and Executive Members Joseph Harmon, Christopher Jones and Ronald Bulkan are also scheduled to speak at these meetings.

The outreaches as scheduled in villages such as Crane, Den Amstel, De Kindren and Uitvlugt on the West Coast of Demerara; and on the West Bank of Demerara in Phoenix Park, Goed Intent, Bagotville and Parfaite Harmonie.

However, when contacted, General Secretary of the APNU, Amna Ally, also took the stance of not confirming or denying the outreach.

“That is the Coalition’s business. We have a programme and we will execute that programme. I am not confirming nor denying what you would have heard. Whatever it is, it is the Coalition’s business,” Ally said during a telephone conversation with this publication.
