PNC/R’s MESSAGE ON THE 50TH INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY OF THE CO-OPERATIVE REPUBLIC OF GUYANA
On this significant milestone of the 50th Anniversary of Guyana’s Independence, the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) salutes all Guyanese, both here at home as well as those in the Diaspora on our achievement of yet another year as a politically independent people and country.
The PNCR also welcomes all our Guyanese brothers and sister from the Diaspora who have returned to the motherland to join us as we reflect, celebrate and inspire in this season of our Golden Jubilee.
The political developments of the past year open new avenues for the forging of a new democratic culture so necessary for the achievement of real independence and social progress in our country.
It is evident, from the way the Guyanese people voted at the May 11th, 2015 General and Regional Elections, that they wish to experience governance that is less confrontational and more cooperative. In this regard, the coalition government has shown great leadership by exhibiting a predisposition to compromise in the interest of arriving at policies and programmes which have the broadest agreement among stakeholders.
Our Party is confident that if as a nation we can build a truly, inclusive political culture in which all stakeholders are allowed to play a meaningful role and which can create an enabling environment for the orderly development of the nation, we can look forward to a future that is politically successful, economically self-sustaining and culturally rewarding.
As we celebrate this Golden Jubilee of Independence, the PNCR pledges to work with all responsible and reliable forces whose aim is to forge social cohesion and national unity. We believe that working together we can ameliorate the many known problems which have bedeviled our country and stymied our development.
The PNCR is proud of our record in government and the important role that our Party and our Founder Leader, Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham played in our country’s struggle for independence.
It is with these reflections that the PNCR greets all the people of this our dear land and extend best wishes on the auspicious occasion of the 50th Anniversary of our political Independence.
Happy 50th Guyana!
