[www.inewsguyana.com] – Prime Minister Samuel Hinds says that although he is being replaced as the Prime Ministerial candidate for the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), he will remain in politics.

Addressing a capacity crowd at Babu John, Port Mourant on Sunday, March 08, the Prime Minister made it clear that 22 years of politics in Guyana is not enough for him and he remains up for the challenge of public office.

He explained that he has “achieved quite a bit” during his tenure but admitted that more could have been done to foster development in Guyana.

“You wouldn’t see the end of me…I am not saying farewell,” Hinds told a cheering crowd at the Cheddi Jagan memorial site.

Hinds noted that he especially regrets that more could not have been done in the last few years to develop Guyana with regards to electricity and telecommunications.

“I regret that I couldn’t come here today with Amaila Falls already in place,” said the Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, the Party’s recently selected Prime Ministerial candidate Elisabeth Harper said she looks forward to working with President Ramotar to build Guyana.

“I believe I can work with President Ramotar in the next majority government to contribute to increasing the potential of this great nation that we live in,” Harper said.
