[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Heads of State of several Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and South American countries are expected to arrive in Guyana for the official inauguration of President David Granger which will run concurrently with Guyana’s 49th Independence Anniversary celebrations.
This is according to Bobby Vieira, one of the organisers behind the events being planned to mark the Independence Anniversary and the introduction of Guyana’s new APNU+AFC government led by President David Granger.
Vieira at a news conference on May 19 pointed out that the Heads of CARICOM and South American nations have been invited to the official inauguration.
He said it is expected that these individuals will respond in an affirmative manner with respect to their presence in Guyana.
Among the activities planned will be a wreath laying ceremony on the morning of May 26 where eight wreaths will be laid in honour of the persons that fought for Guyana’s independence from Britain pr 1966.
This will be followed by a grand inauguration ceremony which will include entertainment and shows inside the Guyana’s national stadium at Providence.
It was also noted that there would be no flag raising ceremony on May 25 at the National Park. The flag raising ceremony has become a tradition for Guyanese with a sense of patriotism being renewed in many when the Golden Arrowhead is hoisted to a spectacular display of fireworks at the National Park each year.
