[www.inewsguyana.com] -The People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) moments ago presented its list of candidates to the Chief Elections Officer of the Guyana Elections Commission Keith Lowenfield at City Hall Georgetown, for the upcoming May 11, 2015 Regional and General Elections.
One of the biggest surprise, is the inclusion of former President Dr Bharrat Jagdeo as a candidate for the Party.
Jagdeo had on previous occasions indicated a lack of interest in returning on the Party’s list after demitting office in 2011.
He has however had a change of heart owing to the demands of party supporters.
Explaining his decision to return on the PPP/C list Jagdeo said “it was not my original decision to be on list of candidates. But party and membership convinced me to be part of the list of candidates as it would send the signal that I’m fully engaged in the struggle, which I am”.
