[www.inewsguyana.com] – The second day of the 18th Biennial Congress of the PNCR was continued yesterday [Saturday, July 26] at the Party’s Headquarters at Sophia.
According to a press statement from the PNC, the Congress passed a resolution calling on the PPPC administration to immediately take corrective steps to halt the pollution of the Canje River.
The highlight of the session was the report of the General Secretary of the PNCR, Oscar Clarke, who gave an in-depth overview of the happenings within the PNCR since the last Biennial Congress which was held in July 2012 and the state of the party’s eleven regions over the period.
In his report, Clarke said it was a period of continued challenges as well as opportunities for the Party.
“We are still saddled as a country with the continued racial and political discrimination at the hands of the Peoples Progressive Party Civic administration.”
The work of the Party’s constitutional review committee was presented by committee Chairman, Lance Carberry for debate and assent by the Congress.
Today, members will elect a leader for the Party, either David Granger or Aubrey Norton.
