[www.inewsguyana.com] – Former President and Leader of the Opposition, Bharrat Jagdeo has reiterated his support and that of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) to the APNU/AFC government with regards to the Guyana/Venezuela border issue.
Speaking to a meeting organized by the Guyanese community in Queens, New York on Friday, Jagdeo stated that the PPP will never shy away from national issues such as this.
He urged that the positive relationship which the PPP government had established with Venezuela should continue to grow under the current government.
The Opposition Leader gave the Diaspora an overview of the recent May 2015 elections outcome and electoral process in Guyana.
There were questions from the audience about the reasons that caused PPP’s defeat under its Presidential Candidate Donald Ramotar.
To this end, Mr Jagdeo noted what he said were various inconsistencies in the overall electoral process; pointing out to the packed hall several instances of the Guyana Elections Commission’s (GECOM’s) “partisan” behavior.
He also accused the government of mass firings of workers including almost 2000 indigenous people, because of their perceived political affiliation.
