[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic, Clement Rohee is not dismissing the idea that Jesus would vote for the PPP.

This claim was first made back in 2011 when the now Junior Finance Minister Bishop Juan Edghill had posited that Jesus would have cast his vote in favor of the Party.

He maintained his position on Sunday, March 01 on the radio programme ‘Hard Talk’ aired on 90.1 Love FM, where Bishop Edghill made it clear that he stands by his pronouncement on the matter.

This is despite previous outrage by the Christian community which comprises of a considerable amount of Guyana’s population objecting to the statement in 2011 and again on Sunday shortly after the programme was aired.

But Rohee at a press conference on Monday March 02, said he was not aware of the issue and the concerns raised.

When asked directly whether he believes Jesus would vote for the PPP/C, the Party’s General Secretary said he would first need to see a photo of Jesus.

“First I would have to see a selfie,” Rohee said.

A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) member James Bond, who was also a guest on Hard Talk, was highly critical of Edghill’s statement during the programme.

He posited that “Jesus is a King” hence would not subject himself to voting for a government of man.
