[www.inewsguyana.com] – Senior official of the African Cultural Development Association (ACDA) and University lecturer, Eric Phillips has questioned the APNU/AFC coalition attacks on Ambassador Elisabeth Harper for being selected as the PPP/C Prime Ministerial Candidate.

In a Facebook post, Phillips said: “Don’t know why the combined opposition would comment negatively on the selection of Mrs Harper as PM Candidate…have some class and tell us what you will do for us…stppps…show us dignity.”

General Secretary of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), Joseph Harmon, is of the firm belief that the PPP will sink Elisabeth Harper in their “sea of corruption.”

Harmon, during a telephone interview with iNews reacted to the Party’s announcement that Mrs. Harper will run alongside incumbent President Donald Ramotar as its Prime Ministerial candidate at the upcoming general and regional elections on May 11.

Mrs. Harper is currently the Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Harmon described Mrs. Harper as a ‘decent public servant’; however, he criticized the Prime Ministerial candidacy.
