[www.inewsguyana.com] – Opposition Leader David Granger says his party – A Partnership for national unity (APNU) – is not scared at the recent announcement by the incumbent Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) that it is getting set for elections, whether Local Government or National Elections.
He said in fact the APNU has been making similar preparations, “we are also in election mode” he noted.
The opposition leader said the Government must end what he described as its game of “maximum administrative delay” and have the four Local Government Bills sent to President Donald Ramotar for his accent as early as possible. “I can’t understand why the delay, they are dancing around before giving assent, it’s simply a game of delay” he said.
The PPP in a recent statement had said the party has intensified work on “community outreaches involving party members and activists. Hundreds of community and face to face meetings are being held throughout the country aimed at taking the party to the people and trying to find solutions to problems on the ground.”
According to the Party, “it is the first time in the Party’s history that a Central Committee meeting was held outside of Georgetown. Immediately after the conclusion of the meeting, Central Committee members broke up into groups and went on house to house visits in Enmore and the adjoining villages with a view of obtaining first hand information on issues and concerns faced by residents in the various communities.”
The PPP also attacked the opposition and the “hostile opposition media” particularly the Kaieteur News for their continuing attempts to “destabilize the development agenda of the PPP/C administration through the reckless use of its one-seat parliamentary majority. The opposition parties in this regard are aided and abetted by a hostile opposition media, in particular the Kaieteur News which continues to spew on a daily basis lies and slanderous statements against the government and state functionaries.”
