[www.inewsguyana.com] – The People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) will be offered to play a role, albeit, not a major one in an APNU+AFC led administration, according to Presidential Candidate, Brigadier (rt), David Granger.
He revealed on the radio programme ‘Hard Talk’ that the coalition believes in national unity and as such, will not shun the PPP/C if the APNU+AFC wins the May 11 general and regional elections.
“A government of national unity must mean that if we got 55 percent of the votes, we can’t lock 45 percent of the people out of governance and yes we are going to reach out to the PPP because we want a true government of national unity so that we can proceed with developing this country on the basis of collaboration and cooperation not on the basis of confrontation,” the Presidential Candidate said.
However, he was quick to point out that an APNU+AFC government will not allow any PPP members to play a leading role in the governance of the country, as he pointed out alleged wrongdoings by the ruling Party.
“The PPP/C has committed some grievous crimes against these people; crimes of corruption and quite recently, President Ramotar had to remove one from his cabinet…so there are problematic issues which have to be dealt with and we don’t want to bring in anybody into our cabinet, our government who is contaminated by corruption,” Granger noted.
He said over the past 15 years, Guyana has experienced a lot of criminality, corruption and cronyism; something which his Party intends to change.
