[www.inewsguyana.com] – Opposition Leader and Leader of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNC/R), David Granger is self-assured that he will return as leader of the Party when its membership convene for the 18th Biennial Congress on July 25 – 27.
He also made it clear that he is confident in the process, democratically designed, in selecting the rightful person as the Party’s Leader when the voting is complete.
“I feel good, I am very confident… I accepted the nomination and I’m satisfied with the democratic process,” Granger told the local media on Friday, July 18.
Five persons have been nominated to contest the post of leader of the PNC/R following the close of the official nomination process on Saturday last, among which is PNC Stalwart and Former Party General Secretary, Aubrey Norton.
Norton, with an alleged large number of members already signaling their support for him, seems to be Granger’s most threatening contender. While the other persons have not been named, it is very likely that Norton will accept his nomination.
According to a Party member, Shadow Finance Minister Carl Greenige and PNC/R Chairman Basil Williams are also running for the Post.
Among other nominations are: Cammie B.Ramsaroop for Party Chairperson, Volda Lawerence and George Norton for Vice chairman.
Last week Granger told iNews that he was satisfied with the progress of the preparations of the upcoming 18th Biennial Congress 2014.
Meanwhile, General Secretary of the PNC/R Oscar Clarke told iNews that he too is satisfied with the preparations for the Congress. The theme for this year’s congress is: “PNC/R for National Unity Governance and Development.”
Previously Greenige had ran against Granger for the Leadership but failed. He was then supported by Norton. Since then, Norton has accused a faction of the PNC of stymieing his upward mobility in the party owing to his support for Greenidge.

Mr. Granger needs a wardrobe make over. He is no longer in the military and his constant green shirt with no jacket or tie uniform harks back to the Comrade Burnham ‘shirt jack’ era.
He must abandon the militaristic look and begin to transform to the part of the President.
