Capture[www.inewsguyana.com] – The APNU+AFC coalition is set to launch its manifesto today, Thursday, April 30 at the Stabroek Market Square downtown Georgetown at 15:00hrs.

The manifesto is being launched as preparations for General and Regional Elections intensify with just 11 days remaining before Guyanese head to the polls. The official launch is also being done some two days before some 7000 members of the disciplined services cast their ballots – May 2.

In recent weeks, a draft manifesto from the coalition had made its way into the public domain and detailed a host of increases for public servants and servicemen along with a plethora of other developmental plans to take Guyana forward.

The leaked document had stirred a lot of social debate with most of the conversation being about the proposed salary increases for public servants and disciplinary service officers which were noted in the 46 page document.

The document proposed that should the APNU+AFC be elected to office, it would institute a 10% across the board increase for salary workers in the first instance. This will be done as a prelude to the resuscitation of collective bargaining for the public service.

According to the draft document, the APNU+AFC also has plans to constitute an Independent Constitutional Salaries Review Commission to be responsible for the periodic review of salaries, pensions and other conditions for persons appointed to constitutional offices including the President, Prime Minister and members of the judiciary.

Looking towards to the security sector, the coalition had drafted plans to increase the salaries of all law enforcement officers by a sweeping 20% during its first year in office.

However, mere hours after the document was leaked Former President Dr Bharrat Jagdeo has said that he is not impressed by the document deeming it visionless.
