[www.inewsguyana.com] –Elisabeth Harper has officially departed her post as Ambassador General at the Foreign Affairs Ministry to take up her full time job as PPP/C’s Prime Ministerial candidate.
In a social media post Harper said “today I said farewell to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to my phenomenal Minister, Honourable Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett and remarkable staff. My heart is overflowing with the words of appreciation, gratitude and encouragement spoken today. I leave with you all my love and God’s blessings always.”
Harper replaced Prime Minister Samuel Hinds as the PPP/C candidate after he served in the position for close to 22 years.
While she remained as Ambassador General for the past month, Harper has taken to the campaign trail and was well received by many with her message to eradicate domestic violence.
Just last weekend at PPP/C’s Kitty rally, Harper said that the ruling Party has intention of establishing a special unit that would seek to address and investigate reports of domestic and other forms of abuse.
“The PPP/C will establish a Special Crimes Unit that would address issues related not only to domestic violence but also child/sexual abuse and rape and work to ensure that our security and judicial systems give justice to victims,” she declared.
Additionally, Harper touted the revision of all laws that concern Guyana’s female population with the view of strengthening those laws to better protect and foster the development of women.
