[www.inewsguyana.com] – A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) has continued its demand for President Donald Ramotar to name a date for the holding of Local Government Elections (LGE) in Guyana.
A contingent of protesters headed by the Leader of the Opposition, David Granger, this morning picketed outside of the Office of the President.
APNU demonstrators demanded that the President desists from pretending to desire elections but in fact “preventing the holding of local government election.”
APNU called on the President to issue the commencement order to operationalize the Local Government Commission. APNU also called on the President to initiate the process by which the Local Government (Amendment) Bill could be returned for his assent.
The Party says the President must tell the people of Guyana the truth about local government elections.
“APNU will continue its protest action until its demands are met,” the Party said in a statement.
Blue Caps, headed by its Chairman, Clinton Urling, joined APNU in its protest action today and supports APNU’s call for the President to name a date for the holding of LGE.
