[www.inewsguyana.com] – Prime Ministerial Candidate of the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C), Elisabeth Harper has joined with many others in condemning the verbal attack on women’s rights activist, Sherlina Nageer by PPP/C Candidate and Minister of Health, Dr Bheri Ramsaran.
In a Facebook Post, Harper, who has vowed to represent women issues said: “The comments made by Minister Ramsaran were unfortunate and regrettable. He has since acknowledged this and has apologised. As a woman, but more so a human being with conscience, I share the sentiments of many that this has revealed that we have to do much more to secure the full respect for the rights of our women particularly what women stand for and how they should be seen.”
She noted that as Guyana progress as a nation she hopes that all actions and utterances will be made with wisdom and respect for all.
