[www.inewsguyana.com] – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) is continuing head strong in its campaign for Local Government Elections (LGE).
The APNU team, led by Leader, David Granger recently visited the communities of Laing Avenue, East Ruimveldt and Ann’s Grove, where residents complained bitterly about the poor state of the physical infrastructure.
APNU’s Director of Communications, Mark Archer told iNews that residents also complained about drainage, flooding and garbage issues. According to Archer, the communities have been neglected due to the lack of a functioning local government department.
He explained that Granger informed residents about the state of Guyana’s local government system as he stressed the importance of President Ramotar setting the date for the long overdue LGE.
The APNU has planned several protest action in support of LGE after Ramotar has refused to set a date. Local Government Elections was last held in 1994.
