Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) – the party which won the March 2 General and Regional Elections – is calling on all Guyanese to help build a new Guyana.

Ali, in a brief statement on his Facebook Page, expressed that “I say now is the time to fix the fundamentals on which a modern and free society is built.”

He added that, “this is the moment to fill the cracks on the pillars of democracy, cast the beams of unity and build the tower of destiny, not by stones and steel, but by all of us individually and collectively. To do this we have to change our mindset, and reprogram the way we think and act.”

Ali highlighted that his father always told him to “strike the iron whilst it is hot”.

Against this backdrop, the president-elect said “the fight for democracy, rule of law, economic and social development, political will and societal involvement are hot this moment and me must strike it as a nation and shape it into the country that the future generations will be proud of and never again must we find ourselves in this position as a people and country.”
