[] – The Region 10 faction of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) and A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) seem to have ironed out its issues, as APNU’s Leader, David Granger said they are going into the general and regional elections united.

Granger met with Chairman of Region 10 and PNCR Member, Sharma Solomon on Wednesday, January 21 hours after President Donald Ramotar announced May 11, 2015 as Election Day.

Both Granger and Solomon seemed satisfied with the outcome of their discussions.

“We are crafting a platform. The PNC in Linden is an important part of the APNU, and we are going into the elections in Region 10 as a partnership,” Granger told sections of the media shortly after the meeting.

The APNU Leader explained that a compromise has been met since their focus is now to rid the Guyanese people of the PPP Government. The discussion centered on the Party’s campaign strategy for Linden.

The rift in the Party intensified at Congress Place on July 27, 2014 after a group of Lindeners led by Solomon and PNCR Member Aubrey Norton walked out of the Congress, alleging that Lindeners were disenfranchised by being prevented from voting.

This was during the PNC/R’s 18th Biennial Delegates Congress, where Granger was again elected to run the Party.

Prior to this incident, APNU Member of Parliament Vanessa Kissoon had claimed assault at the hands of PNCR’s General Secretary Oscar Clarke during a scuffle for the key to the Party’s Linden office.

The conflict escalated on January 08 when displeased supporters broke off the locks of a newly installed steel door at the same Linden Office.



  1. Will the people of Linden accept Moses Nagamootoo a former PPPites to rule Guyana while Granger settle for a back seat and also the Biggest share of the votes will be PNC and most members will be non PNC who will take power when they just jump in polictics yesterday while some of our stalwarts work their soul out

  2. I believe,that maturety finally won the battle between A Partnership For National Unity (APNU) and the People`s National Congress(PNC)Linden branch.It was a long fought battle it seems,but good sense seem to have prevailed,especially at this juncture,when General and Regional elections are due.

  3. Unlike the PPP yes they all are ONE, guyanese should be One People One nation but the PPP split, the C is the who?,,tell us Gray APNU/PNC/afc all one bunch,,,the problem with Guyana is VERY LITTLE choice, so Hip hip to the PPP/c

  4. U know eh? they strat out real both sides of the issue then something went belly up with them..inews joined the gang..ehehehe

  5. I am disappointed in my fellow Lindeners continued voting for the PNC. It’s time we show the rest of Guyana, that we are different and do not vote on race but on issues and good governance. Its time Lindeners listens to the plans put forward by the various parties and vote for a candidate based on his/her track records and their vision for Linden. Let’s seek good governance. For decades the Town of Linden has been under the control of the PNC and just look at it now. The PNC has no vision for Linden; they just used the people during election time and discard them after the election, while the PPP continued to victimize the people of Linden for voting for the PNC.
    For this election, I would like to remind my fellow Lindeners and all of Guyana that:
    1. Your vote is your voice. It’s your opportunity to be heard, to hold elected officials accountable for their decisions and to have a say on important issues that affect our country.
    2. Voting in an election means that you have a say on the people and political parties representing you in Parliament.
    3. When we vote, we choose the representatives who will make the laws and policies that govern how we live today.
    4. To vote is to give a voice in playing a role in positive change.
    5. Education is critical, many countries are way ahead of us and we are falling behind.
    6. Healthcare issues are among the top of the list for our citizen today.
    7. Jobs are hard to find, and in some places like Linden it is nonexistence

    So come on Guyana, let’s send a strong message to governments and politicians. As stated above, listens to the plans put forward by the various parties and vote for a candidate based on their track records and their vision for Guyana. The more votes, the more powerful the message is. In other words, every vote counts.

  6. vote PPP/C , i am sure my post will not be posted because Inews is a PNC/R supporter, Linder ppl they are not compromises between the 2 people this is just propaganda

  7. yes ..united..not most guyanese knows that..all guyanese knows that..u r one when it comes to elections in trying to defeat ppp..make sure its done in the full spirit of democracy unlke before when u ruled guyanese illegally with the blessing of A B C countries..go ahead win it fair and square free and transparent is how the people want you to win it for them.
