[www.inewsguyana.com] – General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Clement Rohee has noted that even though the Party is set and ready for Local Government Elections and National Elections, it needs to assess the mood of the Guyanese people before a date is announced.
Rohee told reporters at a press conference at the Party’s Freedom House Headquarters on Monday, June 02 that the delay on the government’s part in calling the elections also has to do with timing.
“It is a question of timing and judgment call. The Party is ready, the machinery is oiled but it is the mood of the people. These are senses which politicians are attuned to,” the General Secretary told the news conference.
When questioned, he admitted that the ‘mood for elections’ by the population is growing, either for local government or national elections.
“People are now psychologically prepared for any of the two elections,” Rohee said.
There have been widespread calls from various sections of society for local government elections to be held, given the state of the City and Regional Democratic Councils.
