[www.inewsguyana.com] – As things spiral out of control at the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR), it is being alleged that the bodyguard of incumbent Leader, David Granger fired a single shot in the air to bring calm to the final day of the Congress at Sophia, Greater Georgetown.
iNews was reliably informed that majority of Lindeners, who are in support of Aubrey Norton, were allegedly prevented from voting today [Sunday, July 27] and as such, began to protest.
The protest by the Linden faction resulted in a pause of the voting process. One elderly delegate, Cyrilda Da Jesus, who was obviously frustrated with the situation, left the Congress without voting.
“I going home man. I got better things to do,” the woman told iNews.
The Linden delegation is claiming that they are under constant verbal attack by Granger’s supporters. One of the delegates, who prefers to remain anonymous told iNews that last evening, all the cards for the Linden delegates were secured and everything was in place for voting today.
Some of the Norton supporters are outside Congress Place, some in tears and obvious frustration with the voting process.
The results of the voting will determine whether Norton or Granger will lead the PNCR.
iNews is following the situation closely and will provide more details as it unfolds.
