A press statement from the Opposition Coalition noted that a police report was filed following the alleged threat, verbal abuse and intimidation of its activist by a senior PPP official on the Essequibo Coast in the Anna Regina area.
“APNU+AFC will provide full details, including names subsequently,” the statement noted, adding “This is the latest in a long line of APNU+AFC officials being harassed, abused, bullied, intimidated and threatened by the desperate PPP/C regime.”
Meanwhile, the Coalition also dismissed the claims made by PPP/C officials that there is a centrally organized plan to harass the PPP/C activists.
“There is no such plan and the APNU+AFC call on the Guyanese people to judge the tone and temperature of the two political campaigns. The PPP/C is clearly propagating messages of division and hate and while APNU+AFC’s campaign is based on national unity, inclusion and harmony.”
According to the coalition, in the face of the “cowardly acts of intimidation and aggression by the PPP/C,” the APNU+AFC continue to call for calm and restraint of its supporters “as victory is assured.”
