“We are treating everyone as equal partners, as friends and that there is no need for anyone to have any reservations.

“Wherever there have been wrong doing the judicial process will take its course,” Nagamootoo explained.

The Prime Ministerial Candidate appealed to the Diplomatic Community to join the Coalition’s call for calm during the campaign and election period.

“We also want the international community, the embassies and missions here and Non-Governmental Organizations to join the APNU+AFC Coalition in appealing for calm and that there should be no appeal for violence or to ethnicity and racism,” Nagamootoo said.

Campaign Co-Chairman Joseph Harmon also endorsed Nagamootoo’s comments.

“It was an opportunity for us to brief the diplomats about the Cummingsburg Accord, what it is, what it purports to do and the way it is going to change the political culture of Guyana,” Harmon said.

  1. MORE LIKE CUNNINGBIRDS accord.
    The AFC sold out.
    They do not have equal say.
    60/40 is in favour to APNU.
    Mr Ramjattan was supposed to lead.

  2. Now I really feel sorry for Nagain mootoo, (snake mootoo) who in a public meeting said he would never be a “Nimakaram” (ungrateful) to the PPP. This ungrateful snake forget that it is the PPP that took him out from the cane field and send him to get an education. We used to sacrificially raised money to give Cheddi Jagan to feed, clothed, and educate those low class whose morale is now lower than the belly of a snake. It doesn’t matter who win the next election. The world will forever remember some of these poor politicians for their betrayal. I hereby encourage all readers to Google Moses Nagamootoo, Winston Felix, and Basil Williams and see and listen to those recordings. Then question yourself.

    A B C countries know who create and cause violence during and after elections are over. PNC. Losers.

    Well poor old Nagamoottoo PPP must be feeling really out of place sitting alongside Harmon PNC-Trotman PNC Cathy Hughes PNC-Patterson PNC.
    Racial unity eh Nagaboy? U R so hungry to get the least power to get back at those in PPP that U think wronged you. No Nagaboy no no one in PPP wronged you but you in-self wronged you. Jagan did not die leaving Guyana for you to run and the same goes for old man Ramkarran PPP too.
    Nagaboy did you not know that the international community knew who caused the atrocity perpetrated on East Indians on Agricola Public Road while you stuffed your mouth with you know what? “We are treating everyone as equal partners, as friends—-Really Nagaboy??? Really? U better think before talking again Nagaboy..
