High on the agenda for the Central Committee of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) during a meeting last Saturday were the ‘developments’ in the country since the APNU+AFC Coalition took office and the attempts of the regime to intimidate Party members on ‘trumped up charges.’
This is according to General Secretary of the PPP, Clement Rohee, who during a media briefing today stated that his Party has analysed these ‘developments’ in Guyana and concluded that the APNU+AFC Administration has failed miserably to deliver its election promises to the nation.
He declared that the so-called ‘good life’ promised to the people is turning out to be a mirage, and except for the top echelons of the ruling cabal, the vast majority of the population are worse off than before the change of Administration.
Meanwhile, in relation to the ‘trumped up charges’ against its Party members, the Central Committee had condemned this and expressed solidarity with those who are suffering from any form of victimisation by this Government as a result of their party affiliation.
“The Party noted with concern the decision to close down the Wales sugar factory and the hardships that decision would have on the well-being of those who depend on the estate for their living”.
Rohee also noted that much deliberation took place on the upcoming Local Government Elections and the preparedness of the Party to win an overwhelming majority of the constituencies at the Mayoral and National Democratic Council (NDC) levels.
He noted that the PPP is optimistic that the electorate will turn out in their numbers and vote overwhelmingly for the PPP/C.
During the Central Committee meeting on Saturday last, presentations were made by Rohee which set the tone for a robust discussion on the way forward for the PPP in its efforts to regain political power.
